Why does my TDP hit 70+ on stock R71700?

All in the title really.


Started the other day after I crashed on Universe Sandbox 2. Prior to that I had prime95'd fine on 1.425v 4ghz with no weird TDP readings. Now it won't even get past the first pass.


Have updated to new bios today but no luck. Add insult to injury now all the clocks require more volts and my corsair vengeance mem doesn't even run at XMP still.


Feels like a duff chip but I can't see how at such reasonable volts and temp. Maybe it shorted? Again confused as standoffs in place and connections are all in well.


No instability on stock but very little headroom apart from that now.
