It would actually declock a bit before the undervolt. It would hit 80-82C under full 16 thread loads. With the undervolt, it holds full boost all the time as now it only hits around 68C.Good upgrade. That'll last you for awhile. Plus yeah it's smarter to undervolt those things than to try to overclock them, methinks. There was a lot of stress about their lower clockspeeds, but the reality is that you'll hardly feel it vs. the rest of the Vermeer lineup.
Its unlikely I will ever have this fully loaded like that for extended periods. In gaming it hangs around 50-55C.
