Come on this is a nonsense, Intel & Mobo vendors have together conspired to overclock by default for benchmark scores.I'm not surprised by the 100C. I have to downclock to 4.2GHz for the Prime95 VRM tests just to keep it below 290 watts. Solution? Don't run Prime95 because it will pull 330+ if allowed.
If you don't thermal throttle with CineBench R20 after looping it for a bit, you are golden.
These CPUs are NOT throttling to TDP due to rotten tau settings and are NOT restricting to spec PL2.
This "run yer PC" gently is a result of shabby practices. Developers are one slip away from creating runaway power hogs that can burn >300w and the tech press are letting Intel get away with this.
These boards/CPUs are defective not observing design specifications.
