    The clocks run 3.0GHz, bruh. Of course max temp will be lower the lower clocks sink due throttling:rolleyes:

    I don't know why upon running OCCT, CPU esp. locked ones just stay at 2.8GHz or 3GHz. Disabling that sensors of OCCT does the trick.

    Clocks as you can see, increased to normal level after the test was stopped/cancelled. And 7820hk is unlocked.

    I think OCCT is black-listed by Intel. On AIDA64 it works 100% of the time at turbo speeds.

    Then, why should OCCT suddenly stop working correctly with Alienware’s now? Have worked just fine before. Nothing has changed as far as I know.
