as to why its reading differently, are you sure its the newest CPUZ? have you tried any other HW monitoring tools? CPUZ is mostly a validation tool. It's sensors are meh.

as to manual OC. I tried OC'ing my 9700k just like I would've my 4930k, & it didn't go well. set voltage & go just didn't seem to work as well as it used to. Instead, I used offset to tune it, and left LLC on "medium" or setting 3 of 5. Some folks set it even lower.

is it the best OC in the world? probably not. Does it do better than my MSI's AI OC? by a few degrees and 300mhz? yes.

here's a 9900k OC done via offset with LLC low.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
Best R0ach Quote of all time : TLDR: Haswell might be the last legit gaming platform unless mice get their own non-USB interface on some newer architecture.
