if you're going to retire it then kill it with fire, but I wouldn't push more than 1.45v for a few runs if you plan on keeping it/selling it.

you can play with BCLK to get a few extra mhz if you can't bump up the multiplier, MCE IME don't kick in and block above 103 unless you have a non-K CPU. I can run well over 200 BCLK on my Taichi. Might not get you 5.6 but might get you 5550mhz. Just watch the RAM speed because it'll go up with BCLK.

My 9900k isn't Prime AVX stable at 5 ghz either. Gets way too hot if I put enough vcore into to pass prime (115C). But it's 100% stable in all other benches and games.

Where do you draw the line on stability? Whether you can shove 200 amps into a CPU and not have it crash?

I've got a 5.3 CPU validation in my sig and an HWBOT account full of OCs that aren't stable but it doesn't sound like what the OP is chasing, but here's my thoughts on stress tests since you seem to want them for whatever reason. Last time I ran Prime95 on my 4690K.

sounds like he's replacing his 9700K with a 9900K and the 9700K is either going to set on a shelf or it's going to be sold, and the former sounds kinda dumb because while it may be impressive it's still no unicorn.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)
Intel i5 6400 Skylake @ X4 4588mhz (+69.9%)
