The tool ended up landing on 4.998Ghz w/ 1.32v

Edit: HAHA I like how they're now advertising their warranty. No wonder why they released this overclock tool.

I feel like, for $20, that could definitely just be included in the regular price. Especially considering how expensive their K SKUs are nowadays.

Seems like this tool is not pushing processors very far.

You may actually not be joking:

From the user guide, on page 9:

And on page 14, it says you must accept the disclaimer that overclocking can damage the CPU or system and that Intel's protection plan can be purchased to cover your CPU after overclock.

I bought the overclock protection plan for $20.00. Call me crazy but a small price to pay for overclock protection.

I installed Maximizer but it had my OC to 50 which is what I do manually.

When I use the OC setting for power in my TAICHI bios (Z390) with an all core setting of 50 and Auto voltage, I get nearly the same Cinebench R20 score but my cpu runs cooler with manual adjustments in the BIOS vs using the Maximizer.

It was worth a try but if you have any experience using your BIOS I think you can get a better result.

I’m interested in what it shows for me. AI OC puts me at 4.8, SL shows it binned at 4.9 so I’m interested in if there’s any difference.
Been to lazy to try it myself so far, will once I go direct die next week.

Why exactly does it need its own 16GB partition? Sounds like a failure on all fronts.

Because it installs it's own OS to stress test the processor.

It installs a UEFI bootable program into it's own partition and boots into it several times while attempting overclocks. So it is a kind of mini-OS that runs with one goal and keeps Windows OS out of the way of the testing.

And it needed 16GB of space to do that? Sounds like 2GB would have been plenty.

I can appreciate that but the better way to do this is support removable drives! Make a bootable USB stick with this temporary use app. Not go and start altering OS drives etc. to put their behemoth app on it.

Yeah, I completely agree. I think this is what happens when you send interns off to create a tool.
