If you want 5.2 core, cache max should be no lower than 4.9 supposedly.
On my 9700k, running at 5.0, I cannot get stability with the cache above 4.5. The moment I raise the cache to 4.6, Prime95/Blend w/no AVX will BSOD quickly, no matter how high I raise CPU voltage. I have CPU voltage at Fixed/1.37V now (which give 1.28-1.34 on VRVOUT under Prime95 load). Drop the cache back to 4.5 and I'm stable for as long as I run Prime95.

Motherboard is ASRock Z390 Taichi, 2x8 memory running at 4000/17-17-17-37. VCCIO and VCCSA at 1.18.

Is there anything else I can do besides CPU voltage to help make it stable with a higher cache speed?
