Mine is almost deafening under full load. My main concern here is that I got a comparably hotter sample, and the fan is cranking all the way up to cool it. it's quite possible to get a hotter sample, isn't it?
To answer your questions, I'm using the latest BIOS (it came by default with the board), and in the BIOS UEFI it's cranking all the way up to 5000RPM+ and temps reach 66C, which never show up in AOD and Coretemp, although I suspect that's pretty much because the chip is running full throttle in the BIOS, when CnQ is yet to kick in. What's happening with AOD and Coretemp however, is strange in that temps swing back and forth from ~19C to ~26C in ~1 sec intervals. What do you think?

Perhaps AMD wants this to go up to Intermediate Turbo Core right away instead of the 4.0GHz base clock with all cores boosting.

I notice now that every time I launch Coretemp, temps start to read at ~26C then fall quickly down to ~10C. The room is airconditioned now but I don't think it's THAT cold. I'm banking on faulty thermal sensors but if so, do I return the CPU or the board?
