    Question i7 3770k 4.6GHz overclock

    Hi,

    It seems my chip needs quite some more stabilization than other 3770k's. I refreshed the cooling paste 2 weeks ago too.
    Do I have a bad chip? Because these settings are the only ones that 4.6GHz runs stable on.

    You're running too hot, you should never let it peak above 91c.
