Got my 9700K to 5GHz with 1.285V adaptive and LLC at 5 (ASUS Strix Z390-F), ran OCCT for over 6 hours with no errors. Required abit of tweaking with vcore but its looking good so far, played some games on it the past few nights.
Only thing I got concerned about was when I left my VCCSA/VCCIO on auto with my XMP profile turned on (3600mhz, C18, 1.35V)....this jumped the voltages to 1.40V on VCCIO, 1.45V on VCCSA, only ran these for about 10mins of stress testing and my 9700k was hitting 90c with linpack (vcore at 1.30V). After some research, these voltages are apparently very dangerous so I've put them manually to stock and its been fine so far.
Only weird thing that happened with these voltages was my USB on boot wasn't working till I replugged everything....not sure if it was because I was manually shutting the PC down at times, hope I haven't messed anything up with those voltages that high.....damn auto voltage values.
