well, so far so good. cpu stress tests on clean install of windows 11 pro and only drivers, no aisuite or armory crate, temps are down a solid 20c
Edit. After 2:40 mem test the temps are waaaaaay down. I'm just going to keep it here and see what happens for a bit while gaming.
I did also notice a nice spike in watts which makes my temps spike which is usually just around the start of the tests. could this be an issue?
