    Thanks! I'll download and run the benchmark this afternoon when I get home from work and post my results. I ran the Valley benchmark last evening simply because I had it installed and also because I knew what my results were before - this allowed me to draw a quick comparison, if only indicative, which would not have been possible if I used a new benchmarking tool for the first time.

    your next step is not about benchmarking, but rather it's about stress-testing, to ensure that your system is stable under such a CPU core voltage.

    I have just downloaded RealBench 2.44. Must I run the stress test at its default settings, i.e. for 15 minutes and up to 4GB or RAM? I have 32GB installed in my system.

    choose the 4-hour run, and up to 32GB RAM selection.

    Personally I just run the 15 minute test, if it passes I call it good to go.

    Aie, i never had a crash after a 15m pass (16gb in my case) even after a 10h long handbrake session ended in a 3h long raid in World of Warcraft, YMMV ofc

    Just make sure to set manual voltage as Nate said and fiddle with the LLC until you hit your sweet spot, 4-5 seems to be the best.

    Here are my results. I ran two stress tests. One 15 minute test and one 4 hour test. The screenshots are shown below. The ambient temperature remained at 25 C throughout. My CPU temp spiked at 74 C during both tests. I kept the two top 140mm intake fans on my H110i set at a fixed RPM of 700, which is truly silent and even lower than the standard Quiet Profile which is at around 900 RPM. I guess I can achieve better CPU temps if I select one of the Quiet, Balanced or Performance Profiles, but I prefer the system to be whisper quiet at all times.

    Are my results in order? Thanks for all the help.

    I'm somewhat confused, this is 1.2v ? you should be around 60c not 75c (even with fans on silent)

    75c is great for stress testing temp and it looks good from here.

    What are your gaming temps?

    I will play some Battlefield 1 tonight and report back. Over the weekend I noticed that my CPU temp peaked at 80c while playing Battlefield 1. I immediately knew something was wrong. My initial impression was that I fitted the waterblock incorrectly, but after doing some research I also discovered that the CPU voltage could be a culprit. For that reason I created this thread to start eliminating the possible causes one by one. Am I correct in stating that my CPU temp should not exceed 64 C in a game according to Intel?
