I see 4.9Ghz is really bad, what if you disable onboard gpu will temperature drop or it doesnt matter?

Edit: ah you used 1.39v I guess that explains it ^^

Curious, if the 'thermal armor' is removable, why not remove it and see if makes a difference temperature wise? With such high temps when overclocked, any measurable difference will get amplified.

If that's too much of a hassle in this busy time period with Haswell and Computex and all, why not test to see if that flow valve switch changes anything temperature wise?

I'm wondering if disabling the onboard GPU will help as well?

Was wondering how much better the video encoding and trans-coding numbers would improve with quick sync enabled. Its a feature that I am looking forward to, especially since it would seem that I could re-encode a bluray in about 10seconds
