You may be able to set it lower (been years since ive owned a non OCable chip), but to go higher than intels spec turbo you need a k chip, that im sure of. This is what makes MCE so appealing.

No you don't son, unless Coffee lake has drastically changed from skylake

last chip i played with was a i7 3820, i was just unsure since it was "partially" unlocked and I could set the multiplier to 43 even tho the turbo clock was 39. Base clock was 3600mhz for 36.

I have, on multiple occasions, suggested going with an unlocked chip if you wish to obtain frequencies beyond the Intel specifications (overclocking). MCE is not useful in any situation, it draw way too much power for the performance it deliver. Advocating usage of MCE with the reference cooler is just asking for trouble. You have, thus far, ignored everyone that has made statements against MCE including the reviewers you continue to reference.


For some, learning from their own mistakes is the only means of acquiring knowledge/understanding. Please feel free to test your claim. Go buy a 8400 or 8700 and enable MCE while using the stock cooler. Until then, please refrain from making any recommendations to others. Thank you.


Edit: Seems like MCE has no tangible effect on locked cores which makes this entire discussion moot:

"MCE is not useful in any situation" Read that back then ask yourself if you're making any sense.

Might want to scroll down that link "son":

He never got it running at 3.6ghz on all cores....

Ugh this forum.

Sooooo can we set aside the MCE silliness and post a link to 8700k in stock anywhere on the planet biggrin.gif

Why are you on a crusade to tell people not to take advantage of free performance? You do realize that even with MCE on you get full downclocking/speedstep right? MCE now just puts all your cores at 4.6ghz when it detects a load, and back to 800mhz while your reading your emails.

We get confirmation the 8700 can overclock 300 mhz and we got people mad about it, this forum sometimes lol.
Who confirmed the 8700 will overclock on all cores to 4.6GHz?

I think no one

4.6 is just the max Turbo for one core, right?

With Asus multi core enhancement on that can go to 4.6 on all cores and not just one

On the ivy and the sabertooth I had I was also able to set the multi a few steps higher on a non K CPU

However things might've changed on that front
Just as Intel didn't like it people having an easy OC with non K CPU's using BCLK

so i7 8700 non-k when enabling xmp and the multi core enhancement does that lock all 6 to the 4.6 boost?

Im not sure you can enable multicore enhancement with a non-K CPU.

Yes, it would lock the CPU at 4.6... However not all boards will enable it with XMP. Our boards for instance do not change Turbo based on XMP. You have to manually set it to on.
