    Hello Char82

    You should have probably put this in the overclocking section, if a moderator moves it he will tell us.

    First things first, download these four programs.


    1) ROG realbench

    http://rog.asus.com/rog-pro/realbench-v2-leaderboard/

    2) ROG cpu-z

    http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/...PU-Z-ROG.shtml

    3) realtemp 3.70

    http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/...eal-Temp.shtml


    4) EVGA precision x 16 this will be for overclocking your gpu's


    http://www.updatestar.com/topic/prec...016%20download

    When you get these installed report here and let me know.

    I apologize for the wrong section. I do not use forums often. I have got the programs downloaded.

    It shouldn't be a problem doing it here.

    OK great !

    Let's try a run at stock settings first just to see where your temps are. The temperature controls how far you can overclock your cpu and gpu's

    If everthing is set to defaults in the bios except your ram at 1866MHz open up realbench real temp and and cpu - z.

    On realbench click on stress test, turn it white and select how many GB of ram you have, the 15 minute test is fine. Click start and monitor temps with real temp and glance at cpu-z to see what the core voltage is showing.

    When the test has finished Post the maximum temps real temp is showing and what the cpu core voltage was showing please.

    On laptop~looks like I am at 1.264V and my temps are rising still. Currently at 93, 92, 87, 77. That's after 3 minutes.

    Hmm your temps are high for 1.264v. With the H100i cooler I would expect to see temps in the 70's on all 4 cores.

    Can I ask how you applied the thermal compound to your cpu?

    And this is with your maximus vi extreme not a laptop correct?

    Correct. We are overclocking the maximus vi. I just used the h100i compound that came stock with the cooler.

    Realtemp reads at the top:

    4790k 4400.02MHz 100.00 x 44.0

    Ok good that's what real temp should be showing at the top.

    How much thermal compound did you use and how did you apply it?
