You clearly have more experience than me, there's not doubting it. The last time I overclocked a CPU was back when FX was the only AMD offering, so it's safe to say I have no clue what I'm doing half the time. Although the overall pointlessness of the overclock managed to net me 7FPS in Arma3 ultimately achieving above 60FPS. Anyways, Thanks for the enlightenment.Wait a second, don't tell me you haven't maxed out the power limits in the BIOS? Then your OC would be basically for nothing...

"(with Limits in PL2)"
No wonder you have no real problem cooling that, the high VCore gets negated by the CPU hitting the power limit prematurely. It can't draw more power no matter what.
Also, i'd use HWinfo64 Sensors for monitoring, it's superior.
But we're straying further and further away from this topic. It would be better if you made a new topic for further discussion of these issues.
