    I'm really bloody impressed with the overclocking ability. Thoughts on the temperature/score?

    System Specification:

    Motherboard: EVGA Z170 Stinger mITX
    CPU: Intel i5 6600K @ 4.6GHz 1.3v
    Memory: Corsair Dominator Platinum @ 3000MHz (XMP)
    GPU: EVGA 980ti Classified 1518/1901 (+100/+300)
    Cooling: Corsair H100i GTX

    The cooling is a little odd currently as with space restrictions in the case I'm having to mount the normal SP fans outside the case, leaving a small gap between the radiator and have two slim fans inside pushing air through the radiator. It seems to be working, but I might see slightly better results once I purchase a new case using another set of static pressure optimised fans instead.

    Temperature:
    CPU idle: 25-32c
    CPU load (AIDA64 FPU): 51-55c

    Surprisingly, whilst gaming I see similar temperature results to the stress test, which I thought was quite odd. Not sure if I should be worried?

    Try running linpack (Intel Burn Test or LinX) to see how hot your CPU gets under full load. Not many programs stress the CPU like linpack does.
