Very nice, good stuff to know. Nothing quite like lowering power consumption and temps.

I'll need to bear this in mind if i ever I need to build anyone a new rig.

Very helpfull. Always wanted to do this, but have never found the time to thoroughly inform myself on the topic.

TBH I thought it would be more complicated. Gonna' give it a go when I get home from work now that I know how to go about it.

Just to add a little to this - been playing around with my own system last night/this morning.
Considering the most I do with my PC these days is browse the internet and watch films, there's never been much of a need to OC my 3960X or anything, and I've not really ever had the time since I got it.

Undervolted it this morning - 'Auto' volts set it to around 1.3v at stock clocks (3.9ghz turbo). After 30 mins of OCCT that managed to get the hottest core to 86 Degrees C.

After Undervolting, managed to get the volts down to 1.12v with the hottest core at 61 degrees.

Saving 25 degrees isn't half bad for something that's free and only takes a couple of hours.

This is great, the temps of my 4670k have dropped about 10 degrees C with the stock cooler. I haven't been able to stress test properly using OCCT since my temps gets too high within minutes, but it seems to be stable after some gaming sessions and AIDA64 stress tests. Do you guys think AIDA64's stress test is good/heavy enough for stability testing?

AIDA64 been recommended to me by members of the OC3D community over OCCT because OCCT was producing odd results with the Haswell chips.

Thanks! I'll keep using AIDA64 for stress testing then
