Hello Super, just changed my o.c to 4.73 GHz from 4.6 +. My temps under stress with IBT set at high for 20 runs was 67 Celsius package (core). By the way I am awaiting product introduction of the Swiftech H320. Much better than Corsair H100 the Swiftech H220 has an all copper radiator with a pump that 3 times more powerful than on the Corsair H100. It has 5/8 inch tubing That is wider and more flexible than in Corsair units. Did I forget the fact it is expandable you can add a second radiator and a GPU block. I had said I wanted the H320 because soon to be released H220 comes with 240mm radiator and the 320 when released will come standard with 360mm all copper radiator. The price for the 220 is about $149 for the H320 $176. These are closed loop pre-filled AIO liquid coolers that are expandable. Checkout the Swiftech forum on overclocker.com . I estimate my core temps will drop at least 8 degrees Celcius under stress with H320.

i wouldn't use auto when Oc'd as it will make the PC unstable because the volts will be jumping around low to high

I know goofing around since its being stubborn
I can only see core in your pic what are your settings for other voltages
Also I wanted to be clear even at 1.5v temps are good so core is not the issue

Just checked CPUz we have CPU's from the same batch all the numbers match

that might be it but i wouldn't raise it unless your VRM has heatsinks on them and you have a fan blowing on them or they wood overheat and potentially fry the board

i'll try it at normal, thanks for all your help i really do appreciate it.
i do have sinks and fans 8+2 vrm on the UD3
ive had it raised not to 1.5 tho, at +.100v its at 1.3500
what was the default voltage on yours it should be easy to determine which is which by comparing the default voltage
my normal nb is 1.105
the cpu nb VID is 1.2500 i think

thx again
currently im at 21x, with 1.15 on the regular nb, stock 1.25 on the cpu nb, and 1.44 vcore
1hr AVX linpac 64 bit no errors
i ran this once and it found a error quickly, went into bios changed both HT speeds to 2000 and that seems to have done it
before they where 2000 2400 im going to try 2400 2400 now

if i determine that it was the HT speeds i will likey up the multi some more and test again
Edit: tried 2400 2400 windows loaded with basic color scheme so i will take that as a yes to it being HT related now testing 22.5x multi

Been messing tonight and got a stable 4.7Ghz, it actually never deviates from that voltage even at load (decent board). Also managed to get my four sticks of 1600mhz xms3 up to 1946Mhz still at 1.65v, not too shoddy.

My cooling however is currently crap but I'm thinking a decent AIO should get me to 5Ghz.

For cooling try the Swiftech H220 will be released in next 10 days all copper 240 mm radiator 5 watt pump (3 times more powerful than Corsair H100 pump. It also while AIO offers expandability. You can add another radiator of various sizes and a GPU block.

This is better than the Corsair H 100 series?
