    The ASUS boards, in particular, run the chips fairly hard in Auto and XMP modes. You can usually lower the loadline calibration and even offset the CPU core voltage negative. With a crappy cooler, I would stick closer to intel's reference speeds. What speed is that CPU supposed to run with all 6(12) cores loaded, 3.7Ghz? I believe 4.7 is only for 1 or 2 cores. Even with a good cooler, ASUS' baseline settings are stable, but a bit overkill for the speeds they are trying to achieve.

    Delidding the CPU and replace the thermal paste between the IHS and core with liquid metal should help a lot.

    Assuming he is willing to paste conductive liquid on the die itself.

    And yeah, ACO can be ridiculously heavy on the CPU. I heard this was due to over-engineered copy protection being used (e.g. virtualisation and other unnecessary crap) but as expected Ubisoft denies this, even if there is some anecdotal evidence.

    There was an update that helped quite a bit. Farcry 5 (another Ubisoft title) does not have anywhere near the same level of CPU requirement so it seems whatever they did they sorted it out for future titles.

    Then again Ubisoft isn't known for developing polished PC ports either. Neither is Rockstar or most other AAA developers, but R* took what they learned with Red Dead Redemption and made sure that PC ports of Max Payne 3 and GTA V would fly in contrast to the disappointment that is GTA IV.

    I think it's too high I usually got around 50-60C with same cooler cryorig, but mine was 8700(non-k).
