    The cpuz hardware monitor:

    It seems ok most of the time but some of the board readings arent allways correct.
    On my old 775 system it used to screen shot my cpu cooler fan at 80,000 rpm and gpu temps at 140.
    Use a few progs and if the values seem reasonable,they probably are.
    I mean cpuz hw monitor puts my hard disc at 80c one second and 1c the next.

    Hey gl on the system.... you probably need 4.5ghz for the cpu to keep the room nice n waem.

    Im half joking.When things warm up to like 22-25 indoors this summer , I may clock back a bit,depends how stable it is.

    Thanks, good to know. The readings do seem OK on SpeedFan, Core Temp & AXTU so happy to let it go.

    You can probably tell I built it to be able to OC as some point, I'll let it bed in for a while before I try and break it ;) I'll report back once I've had a go.

    If you run more than one monitoring program at the same time, particularly anything and AXTU, you'll get bad data on some readings. You had some obviously crazy fan speed readings, like your CPU fan in CPUID, at just under 50,000 RPM. There is no way your CPU hit 126C, without throttling itself back, and I can't see it staying at that temp in reality for long if at all.

    The problem monitoring programs have is there are so many different monitoring chips, and trying to code the program to handle them all is a big job. Plus sorting out values/data that is not even really being checked by the board, since there are no standards for that, is very difficult. IMO, one that does keep up with things is HWiNFO64, and it even includes a few readings that it can't be sure are significant or not. The mobo manufactures may or may not give them information about what is monitored, which makes it even more difficult.

    Given your Vcore, and power usage, I can tell you are not OC'd at all, I don't need to look at the temps. Vcore less that 1.1V, Package (CPU) power at just under 45W, IA cores (compute) power ~36W, compare those with kick's. It seems you're not using the on-CPU graphics, the GT (graphics) power at ~0.25W.

    Your stock clock temps are very good for an Ivy Bridge CPU, which tend to run a bit hotter that Sandy Bridge CPUs. The temp of your Samsung 840 is about the same as mine are, for a room ~20C. That Enermax CPU cooler seems to be very good, not well known to me (I don't like their fans) but given your temps now it should do well with a moderate OC of 4.2GHz to 4.4GHz, which you should be able to hit easily. Once you get past ~4.5GHz, then things get more difficult, and you learn if your CPU is an easy OC, or a bugger, as they say in the UK.

    Breaking it as you said, comes in a few styles. There's the "no POST/Boot" OC fail, when you restart the PC after upping an OC, and it just won't run. Then there's the "it boots but barely runs, and BSODs" OC fail, which is really not much better. But as long as you're not setting high, fixed Vcore values, you should not hurt the CPU.

    A FYI for you, given a post or two I've seen in this forum. Your board is not an extreme OC platform, given the CPU VRM (Voltage Regulation Module) capability it has. It may have some difficult with maintaining a long term high OC.
