    I'm sure you're right, but I have to figure this psu issue out first.

    If you're curious and think you may be able to help, you can read my post about it here: http://www.techspot.com/community/to.../#post-1564183

    I'm getting so depressed about all these issues and hope I can figure out what is going on here.

    You absolutely sure its the PSU and not the motherboard over-current protection (also clicks every now and then) ? Have you noticed if the motherboard LED's flicker when it happens ?

    So I powered the system up outside of the case and I'm pretty sure it IS the motherboard. Man I'm so frustrated right now. Can you explain what you mean by over current protection. Does this mean there is something wrong with my psu causing the board to do this? I've had 3 psu's connected to this board and they all do this. I googled and some other people report having a popping noise with this board, but that is has something to do with the onboard sound and specifically the de-pop relay.

    Anti Surge apologies. Regulates voltage coming from the PSU and shuts down the PC in case of emergency but usually gives off a warning message like "Asus anti-surge was triggered to protect system from unstable power supply". It does sound like the motherboard has issues if you went through 3 PSU's and it acts the same on all 3 you seen to have terrible luck with your components

    Technically not that bad because I returned some things thinking they were faulty when they really weren't. Like returning psu's when the issue was really the board the whole time and returning a cpu because I confused VID and vcore. The other cpu was better than this one and had great temps and default voltages compared to this 1.
    Never got any warning like what you mentioned though so I think it's probably not an anti surge issue and is that de-pop relay thing. For what it's worth, I have no UPS, but do have everything plugged into 1 of these: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon....L._SL1200_.jpg

    Got my new cooler a couple hours ago and man it's a beast. I made 1 of the worst mistakes ever though, but luckily nothing got ruined... I think. lol
    So you know how the base plate usually has a sticker/film over it that you have to peel off before you attach it to the board to make contact with the cpu... I initially forgot to peel it off and tried to run Prime. lol
    Needless to say my system locked up and crashed in seconds and I had to do a hard reboot. Once I got that sorted I was able to boot back into Windows and everything seems fine. Just started running Prime and so far the temps look much cooler, but I won't judge by how much until it's been running for awhile.
    Keep in mind I made no other change in the bios so the temps are compared to the 85c max I was getting with the other cooler. Will update again later.

    All right Loaded Glove sounds good.

    Glad to hear you peeled off the protective film, that will definitely cause you problems.

    Give us an update anytime, I'm looking forward to your lower temps, this will allow you to overclock further.

    The worst thing about all this is that the 1st cpu I had that I took back because I mistakenly thought the vcore was too high, was able to run 24 hours of Prime with no voltage tweaks or any tweaks in the bios and using the weaker cpu cooler and only hit a max temp of 76c. There is absolutely zero doubt in my mind that this chip I got in return is not nearly as good. Oh well, live and learn.

    My 6700k isn't the greatest either but it can do 4.75GHz with 1.488v.

    You'll find out how good it is once you overclock it.

    I doubt I'll be able to go there tbh.

    Been running Prime about 90 minutes so far and while the results look stable so far, I will be very limited going forward.

    Highest vcore reported by HWinfo64 so far is: 1.248
    Highest temp reported by core temp so far is: 76c

    Of course since all cores are fully loaded turbo boost remains engaged the whole time so the cpu is running at 4.2ghz

    These numbers aren't terrible, but I don't see much headroom there for any OC'ing really.

    The other chip I had with this cooler on it and the tweaks you guys showed me how to do I bet would have run anywhere from 5-10c cooler.
