    Awesome, I'm glad you came right

    Bad news - my sig is outdated. The SR-2 got hit by lightning last year

    Bummer! That’s probably the most epic motherboard ever conceived. What you running now? Can you even get dual socket gaming motherboards like that anymore?

    So I lowered the voltage to 1.9v and it seems to be running stabler and cooler. Idle temps from 37 to 41ish and 69ish under P95 load and stable clock at 4.2GHz.

    Cheers

    Try lowering the VCORE a little at a time to the point it becomes unstable ,then go up a little to the point is becomes stable again.Its time consuming but it can save you a few degrees at the top end.

    I meant to say I’m running at 1.19v sorry. 1.9 is insane haha.

    4.3 is possible if you're willing to push BCLK to 105MHz like @Kaveer did. But I'd be very very careful about even touching BCLK, since overclocking it effectively overclocks everything in your system - including storage devices and PCIe lanes - which can have nasty effects like data corruption.

    I think I upped the BCLK to 102.5 at a 41 multiplier and 1.19v. RAM is running at 1912MHz now and everything seems very stable with reasonable temps. Thanks!
