No idea what version. i just downloaded it off the web.

I havent stress tested my old cooler because it was garbage, i had it for 2 years, but in games, i would sometimes hit 100C.

If the latest version of Prime, it's using AVX instruction sets, which puts an unnecessary strain on the CPU/temps as a result .... Unless, of course, you perform AVX workloads but, if you did, you'd know.

Try running some games, and see how temps look. You want an apples to apples comparison before & after.
