How many of you actually test stability when you overclock like Stability Test with AIDA64, Prime95, IBT etc?
Unstable overclock is not hard to achieve.
Also, some of you have pretty high temps on VCore. If you are going over 1.4V on Intel CPUs you are shorting your CPU lifespan.

Rock stable after 9 hours of AIDA64 stability test and several hours of Prime95 (Small FFT, Large FFT and Blend each)

Didn't you just say it crashes after 2 hours on Prime?
My temperatures are stupidly high on my 3820 and I have no idea why, but then again I'm a noob at hardware stuff (comp was built for me)

I have a h80 water cooler, when under 100% load even for a second the temps jump to 90c. I've reseated the cooler etc.. a few degrees change if that.

Thanks for your reply, I don't know much at all but I know theyre too high so all the help is appreciated.
I have the h80 fans as you said they should be, pulling cold air in. I also have a fan on the front of the case too (small one not sure of the size).
For the overclock literally all I've done is changed the multiplier, but also when theres no overclock in place, the temps are about the same.
My motherboard is Asus P9X79 and the cables are very neat, they're all behind the motherboard.

I've reset things to default and increased fan speed on the h80.
Heres the stats now and layout of things on my case (xigmatek asgard pro)
I'm not able to put the h80 on top as there wouldnt be enough space how far it comes out and where my cpu is.
