Windows 7: Is this normal?

BIOS says that the CPU can overclock up to 6.3 Ghz and can be volted up to 1.55v. The TCase Max for this CPU is 74°C

These numbers are a bit low in the spec charts. At 2 GHz, I saw voltages at 0.912v. They said 0.250v
AMD A10-Series A10-6800K - AD680KWOA44HL / AD680KWOHLBOX

And I wasn't able to get the turbo frequency to 4400 (much less 4395 MHz) by using the voltage in the "Boosted P-States". The reason BIOS chose to set 1.400v or even 1.440v is because the overclock settings are in "automatic" mode, which means, most of the settings are best determined by the BIOS alone.
This APU won't overclock through the front-side bus like the A4-5300 before it.

Auto bios settings or not. I believe that your cpu cooling is not able to handle the extra heat the high voltage is creating. Until you get cooling to handle the extra heat I recommend backing down the Vcore volts and overclock.

I know very little about AMD but what I do know it's like any other cpu. It doesn't want to be overheated. Any over clock must first be backed up by proper cooling.

That is not TCase Max. That is the absolute maximum core temperature.

IIRC, TCase Max has no meaning on an AMD processor. It's an Intel specification.

And do as Layback Bear is suggesting. Get better cooling before you start overclocking too much and destroy your CPU.

Remember how I had this Zalman cooler, and then I said that it was so big, it stuffed the case full, every time? Now, where do I go to get the replacement fans for it?

Could you post a link to the cooler, so we have some place to start.

Hi,
Yep this doesn't look like much cooling to me unless you've updated your system without updating your system spec's,

I wanted him to post it again, so we, the other members don`t have to keep looking, you want help post the link again, and again, and again

But to answer the question, you get a replacement fan from the manufacturer or a place like Newegg, why does it need another fan ?

You want a real cooler, get this.

I only have a 120x240 vertical vent. And how is it possible to pull my case apart after installing the thing?
