Yes this must be the most taxing on my CPU except for real live rendering in Adobe Premiere Pro.
I am still amazed what's possible with this cooler tbh, at 5.2Ghz i needed 1.560v to be stable enough for this bench and temps were as high as 66c! Socket was nice and cool tho and didn't see more than 55c with the tornado fan behind the motherboard.
Don't ask me how loud it was but it was quite loud as you can understand with these monster fans. At idle with the fan profile on quiet mode in Corsair Link i measured 27 DB and at that setting i can game and do all kind of stuff but rendering of course.
I did some testing on RAM speed as well and i noticed a small increase from 1866 MHz 8-9-9-24 stock to 2400 MHz 11-11-11-30. At a certain point the latency cancels out the speed at about 2400 MHz 12-12-12-38.
I figured that my chip likes fast and low latency RAM. As a matter a fact, i am looking for the best 2400 MHz low latency 16GB kit because in some applications i can use a lot more than 8GB i am running now.
This is the best kit i can find for now: https://www.alternate.nl/G-Skill/16-GB-DDR3-2400-Kit-Werkgeheugen/html/product/1002084?tk=7&lk=9330
I think i am going to order it tomorrow or so
