Good temps, i recently delid my 8700K and i'm running at 5.1 at 1345 volts. When running Cinebench i got 80C, i have Dark Rock 4 Pro with MX-4 thermal paste.
Your CPU is a lot better than mine. Mine needs more voltage to be stable.

MX-4 is your problem. Use Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut for best results.

Mine is very simple.
  • Enable XMP
  • Sync all cores
  • 1.380v vCore
  • Load Line Calibration 6
I need to change the Mobo jumper (overvoltage jumper) before
I'll try it and post here.

Tks

Please share Clover cpu power management :)

I never had to change any jumpers on my motherboard.

All info about my build can be found in the link in my signature below.

For the delete i used coollaboratory liquid ultra. Between the IHS and cpu cooler witch paste do you use?

I use Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut between the CPU die and IHS. Then I use Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut again between IHS and heatsink.

From my experience, Conductonaut performs a little better but Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra is a lot easier to apply.
