    One thing i do notice when booting up now is that it seems like after it powers on it waits for a bit, theres a click and then it boots as normal. I'm not sure if that means anything. I know when I was at stock settings it did not do that.
    do you have any c states enabled? its normal i think its one of the relays storing power then you hear a click as it launches full power to the cpu,my board does it sometimes

    prime95 for one hour, balanced test, no errors. Should I run for longer or move to something else?

    That's normal, it double checks the settings before it boots is why that happens.

    I'd test 6-12 hours at least with prime, and or then test with LinX 10-20 runs with full memory selected. If you run LinX watch your temps as this gets much hotter than Prime95

    Is it safe to leave prime running if I am not there to watch it in case of temperatures getting too high or anything? For the hour that I ran it the temps peaked around 84C but it didn't seem to cause any problems. This seems incredibly hot to me for having a thermalright cooler with double fans on it and a fan on the side of my case blowing cool air in, in addition to the extreme board.

    i think you can set the mb to shut down when it reaches a certain temp limit that you set in the bios

    84C does sound kinda warm, what voltages are you using? What are your ambient temps?

    Im not sure what my ambient temps are, usually around 20-25C i think. I just booted my computer this morning after having my window open all night and the system and cpu temps are 34C according to easytune and 39 to 40C according to coretemp. this is at idle not having done anything besides opening up my web browser.

    Voltages from easytune are :
    CPU PLL - 1.8000V
    QPI/Vtt - 1.2350V
    CPU Vcore - 1.2250V
    DRAM - 1.64V
    (0.75V for everything else under DRAM)

    PCIE - 1.50V
    QPI PLL 1.10V
    IOH Core 1.10V
    ICH I/O 1.50V
    ICH COre 1.10V


    I've always had fairly high temps since i built this machine, even after reseating the cooler a couple times. Considering other temps ive seen from benchmarks I couldnt tell if there was something wrong but I did expect a little better with an ultra 120 and the extreme mobo.

    I can't remember exactly which fans im using, one is the original 120mm fan that comes with the ultra, and i added another 120mm with around the same specs on the opposite side. They are in a pull push configuration so that cool air is sucked into the cooler from the front of the case, and pushed out the back which is right at the exhaust fan for my case at the rear and also the fan taking in air for my psu.

    I have not tried at any other voltages, since it was working and i haven't seen any issues yet.
