    What is the maximum temperature you'll want to reach after several minutes of full load with the 6700K? To avoid long term damage. Currently on 75C

    Here is a free app that can help you get temps: HWSensors download | SourceForge.net

    Here is a popular commercial app that does the same with more features: iStat Menus

    Could you explain the configuration you have in the BIOS and then the ssdt that you have? I have the same board and the same processor but I do not enter the core panic when I try to put it, in benchmark 4 I have in core sige 4990 and in multi core 14871, well below your score and you can not be passing, I would appreciate you little help, thank you

    Did you create your own SSDT for the power management of overclocked CPU? I can't get it working. Could I ask you for some input to the post #296? Would you share your SSDT?

    I used one from this site. I think it was somewhere in the skylake build thread? Should be easy to find.

    Actually I've been trying to find it yesteday but I see only the one for non-oc CPU. Could you maybe mount your EFI and attach it here for me? :) How much did you overclock? Mine's running on 4.8 GHz now.

    Well and it seems that you use wrong ssdt :) It's only for non-overclocked CPUs, for overclocked one has to prepare custom ssdt.

    I think you don't read the text properly. Your hack will work OK WITHOUT SSDT, but will not reach top speed etc.
    WITH SSDT, you will.
    I hit 22k in Geekbench/reach 4.7 GHz easily. Max temp 75 Celsius(after hours of video encoding), about 30 C at 25 room temp with light load.

    Of course I did read, the reason why I would like to install ssdt are my fans that work really weird. Before the overclocking and with ssdt everything was fine and CPU could reach 800 MHz, now usually runs 1-1.3 GHz at idle and fans don't work stable.
