    2x 360 rads + apogee GTZ enuff for 4790k ??

    Looking to cool i7 4790k.
    At 1.26 vlts.46 mhz on all cores this thing reaches 95C on aida system test and gives BSOD 124. Don' really believe it needs volts as much as it nedds to be cooled so what I am asking is this much rad plus block adequate for cpu or do I need new block or rad ? This has treated me well up to now .or maybe I should just delid and be done with this problem. What do you think would be best solution.

    What you have should be fine. Is the block free of debris inside? Is it mounted properly?

    Likely culprits:
    - Lack of flow, ensure everything is pumping well.
    - Bad mount.
    - Bad Intel TIM between the die and IHS (most likely).
