alright doing the stress tests......

so when i first started the stress test, the cpu boosted to 4.0ghz for like 1 second, but while its running, it will not go to 4ghz.... stays at 3.8 max.

so far it hasent gone past 50 degrees C

ok so now on to my GPU. I ran Furmark as a stress test, and the GPU is getting up to 90 degree C. the fan only went up by 20%..... how can I make the fan run better or scale more aggressive?

You can use MSI Afterburner and set a fan curve

any other temp monitors? core temp seems to be giving me a wrong reading. 8c at idle...... I don't think so.

Afterburner is a great program and I highly suggest it to if nothing else ramp the fan speed up some.
