I have the settings in my BIOS in AITweaker and Advanced to OC to 4.5 GHz and I have the feature for idling enabled to reduce the multiplier. However, when I boot to the OS and run Prime95 and the IntelBurnTest, my CPU isn't jumping up during the testing. It just sits there at 3.30 GHz.
Also, my BIOS settings are a bit different from what I'm seeing on the walk-throughs etc.. for example, my Load Line Calibration setting doesn't have the settings they mention (High/Extreme) it just has Auto, Enable and Disable.
 Resolved the issue, left the CPU Ratio in CPU Power Management to Auto and not 45.
I was able to run the Standard Intel Burn Test and the Very High Intel Burn Test and the highest CPU Temp was the third core reaching 71-73*C and the other cores fluctuating between 68-70*C.
Do these temperatures seem reasonable or should I dial it back because I don't necessarily want to be riding "the wall."
