Hello

I just overclocked my i7-3930K to 4.4GHz @ 1.44V and the temps are about 70C - 80C. During the stress test they go up and come down again and go up and come down again. I was wondering if 1.44V is too much @ 4.4GHz? Also note, that I ran the stress test for a long time and it is stable.

My RIG Specs:

i7-3930K
Corsair 16GB DDR3
Asus P9X79 Deluxe
Corsair Hydro H100i Closed Loop Water cooler
1250 Watt PSU
Coolermaster Cosmos II

Hey, I think over 1.35V I would consider a bit high for vcore. You might be able to decrease it gradually to find a sweet spot. That said, I believe the cycling is normal in most stress tests, where it will do some computations and then rest. Depends on the stress test though and the settings.
