    I have tried that - nothing happens

    OK - problem solved - I was waiting for a drop down menu.
    I just typed in 1.25 - no drop down menu needed

    Ok, good. That's what should happen.

    Life is good in the Land of The White Whale - core temps seem to be a few degrees cooler - I learned a lot today - thanks to you all.

    Next you need to do some stress tests to know how high your temps get and to make sure it is stable. Watch your temps very close while running the stress tests. They will go real high real quick. If they go past 85C, I would stop them. If it passes the stress test, you can try lowering the Vcore just a little bit at a time, as I described before. The idea is to find the lowest Vcore you can run that overclock and still be stable. Before you start the stress tests, be sure to crank up your CPU cooler fans all the way.

    For stress tests my preferred ones are Real Bench and AIDA64, which is a paid program but you can get a 30 day free trial. Real Bench is excellent. It is not a synthetic bench, it uses real programs but is a pretty intense test. Run the stress test, not the benchmark.

    Hi,
    Browsers today use a boat load of resources
    Best free stress test is load a bunch of youtube videos set to full 1080 resolution and auto play
    Load a crapload of extra tabs up 20-30-40 lol

    Real Bench is what I used. Since lowering my voltage to 1.20 and bus to 100.3, the highest my temp got was 75c. I have 3 200 Noctua silent fans and a Noctua D15s cpu cooler in a full size case so I am getting lots of air.

    Hi,
    Yeah temps look pretty good for 4.7
    Here's an better free utility to use to monitor your temps
    Good for amd or intel systems shows temp numbers on the right side of the taskbar :)
    Download Core Temp - MajorGeeks
    Just wanted to say thanks for the heads up on Core Temp Mike :) I grabbed it a few mins ago, took me a few mins to figure out how to keep the temps displaying in the toolbar, when closing Core Temp, but guess I figured it out. LoL

    Not sure if it still applies but unless you have a very cool or cold room, it is better to have adequate fans set up and your case enclosed for optimum cooling. Like I said, that was back in the day and I don't know anyone that runs a totally open case unless they are doing extreme OC. You might be just displaying your case and not running it that way. If I just open my side panel, my temps will go up.
