Yep with the heat pumping high 90's to low 100's here I've had to back my 4.7 OC down to a paltry 4.6 ghz.

Alan, I wish you lived closer too. We could build a nice rig together couldn't we? That would really be fun. We could have a rig building party and invite several others. It might take us a while to finish though. But, it would be great.

I'm afraid my AMD and your Intel share very little in terms of how they OC is my guess. I just figured that once I allowed for voltage droop and kept bumping voltage up, things improved on their own.

The only tip I have is keep your room a 4C.

No. The 2011 has an extra multiplier, I've read. No such thing as that on Sandy or Ivy. I have just Bclck and multipier. I think you have an extra multiplier.
