About the components + batch numbers. Would the processors in batch ****** be exactly all the same spec, as they were built all at the same time, with the same chemicals etc etc?
On the other-hand. I have set voltage to "Auto" (I kept getting BSOD) and running at 4.2Ghz and i'm at 1.432v when idle and at around 54*C (With Htt Off) and 1.44V when i'm using 100% processor. when temps around middle 80's.
Unfortunately the i7's do run extreamly hot.
I'm not sure where exactly you're getting your information, but what's clear is this: you really should spend some time boning up on overclocking from a reputable site. As it stands, you have no idea what you're doing, nor what you're talking about. I really don't say this to be harsh, or mean, or rude. Honestly. I'm just being blunt because you've made, and continue to make
, serious errors based on "facts" you have which are dubious at best; at worst, flat out wrong.
To suggest that we can't see above 25 fps is absurd. Please don't bother linking us to sites that tell us what movies and tv fps are, we've all seen it. What those sites fail to take into account is that movies are a constant games are not. Go to any
graphics card review site on the planet and notice what they say about 30fps vs 60 fps. Ask any
of your friends what the difference between 30 and 60 fps is. It's very noticeable, because 25 fps borders on unplayable.
No two components are ever going to be the same, no matter what, ever. It's luck of the draw. You can try and order from batches that are known to be good overclockers, but because there are no guarantees, you've got to deal with what arrives at your door.
You need to stop setting voltage to auto unless you're running at stock speeds. The board is pumping too much juice. i7's DO NOT
run extremely hot; just the opposite, they run quite cool, especially when compared to an i5. Again, I have to ask where you're getting your information because it's going to cause you to ruin your cpu.
80C full load.
For an i7? That's insane. i7's run cooler than i5's and my i5 runs at load what yours idles at. Clearly, you're not doing this correctly.
