I also notice cpuz says voltage a bit lower than what bios is set to, like when set to 1.350 in bios it reads 1.320 in cpuz

Currently testing 4.4 with 1.300 in bios which says 1.284 in cpuz with temps max at 83 and llc on high

How long is long enough on prime95 ? been 45 mins with the lower voltage so far, I think changing the llc to high has helped the most
Mother, should I run for president?
 Mother, should I trust the government?

That is normal for some motherboards, particularly one's that don't have as granular llc and other settings. Some people say 5 hrs some say over night, but I am pretty sure if prime is going crash or drop a worker it'll do it within an hour or so. Real world usage is going to be the main test anyway, or do the h264 test for an hour since it's probably a bit closer to real world usage and realistic temperatures.

I used prime95 with hwinfo. It all goes "low" temp until the 8 tests end (say high 70s to low 80s. As soon as they end, hwinfo shows the temps to jump up a lot, approaching 99C... I was pretty confused and scared by that. So I stopped prime95 and the temps went instantaneously to 45C or so. Do you know what that means?

I am not sure what would cause that,   A bad fan profile maybe ?
