This is my first thread here and I just upgraded parts of my hardware:
Asus Maximus v Formula
H60 (2013 version)
Corsair Dominator Platinum 1866 8GB
So here is my problem and i hope someone can help :
I have a maximus v formula and a (2013) Corsair H60 cooler and I am having some problems with them (recently got these).
The first is that when I set the XMP profile in the BIOS so that the memory (dominator platinum 1866) runs at the specified speed it forces the voltage on the CPU to be ridiculously high. At idle the voltage on the CPU is 1.2~v and when it goes to load it then DROPS to 1.7~v. WTF is happening lol, I swear it is meant to idle with a lower voltage around 1.0~v and then ramp up when under load. Can someone please help me with this?
I want to keep the CPU (for now) at stock speeds with turbo boost (effective 3.9GHz) and have voltage etc low when idle and at the amount it needs to be (no more) when at full load. Right now like I said it idles at 1.22v and then voltage decreases when under load whilst also having the memory at 1866. When I tried to just change the memory frequency in BIOS to 1866 without xmp enabled the system crashed and wouldnt boot.
The next issue is the H60. I know its no amazing cooler, but from the temperatures I am getting I am thinking something is wrong. At idle I am getting around 30-35C and then under load it is going to 70C. Now this is without overclocking the CPU at all. And I have looked at reviews on sites for the h60 cooler (http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages..._review,8.html Guru which is reputable) and they are getting temps at stock of under load 50~C. What the hell is wrong with my one lol. I swear the temps are too high because when I did a simple overclock to 4.4GHz the temps were going over 80C. I thought something was wrong with the thermal paste on the CPU so I re-applied it to no avail.
SHope someone can help please! lol
