It sounds like you have a stable OC on your hands, good job
well the thermal compout was all shitty. so i saw a big difference there, and rotating the cooler helped with the airflow quite a bit. i had the fans working against eachother. but i did build this pc like 5 years ago... gotta overclock it now to keep up. ha.
my temps went from 70* max to 61*max...
thanks guys. its working great now. got my vcore down to 1.8 on the heavy load. and at 3.8 stable. even clocked my ram at 1600 8-8-8-22 at 1.56v runs great. now if i could only replace my old 9800gtx+ and logitech g15 for the new versions... ha
