    It will damage your CPU if you're running an overclock on it. Well not damage, more like push it farther than it should ever go. It runs an instruction set called Advanced Vector Extension 2. Run P95 v26.6 or earlier in order to avoid this push. However, run 27.9 to ensure you can run a lightly loaded version of AVX.
