Was your 3930k overclocked? So the temps are higher with the overclocked 1680v2 vs the overclocked 3930k?
Aren't some of the 1680v2 out of Mac Pros? Those are ok to use in a X79 PC too, right?
Yeah, my 3930k was at 4.5GHz as well. I’m working on lower core voltages to bring the temps down as opposed to pushing for higher frequencies . The higher temps aren’t surprising- it’s 33% more cores. My mobo is x79 and it works just fine- Rampage IV Gene. The 1680v2 isn’t on the supported list, although the little brothers are. Not sure why, but again, it works great.
