    Strange issue after Overclocking.


    I have a strange issue I hope someone can help with. I have a new PC with the ASUS P9X79 motherboard, full specs below. I overclocked to 4400. No issues under normal load. When gaming, browsing web etc, temps 55 -60, CPU load 20% max. If I stress test with Prime95 or Linx Real Temp gets to about 75 - 80 degrees and then throttles down. So it will have 100 x 44 get to say 80 degrees and throttle back down to 100 x 32 and then the temps fluctuate between 60 - 80

    I followed this guide, everything is set the same except it is 4400 and not 4800 and the CPU VCORE Voltage is set to offset .120. If I try set higher the text changes to yellow the red.

    Here are the PC specs
