Watercooled overclocking 9700k results and questions:
Asrock z390 Taichi
Gskill 16G 3200 C14
2*240 30mm radiator only for CPU, with DDC pump
I overclocked 9700k to 5.3Ghz, Vcore 1.47v, ring 43X, avx offset=0, no memory overclocking, FPU 10mins passed.
But no matter what I try increase the vcore (1.5v-1.6v), it still cannot get 5.4Ghz passed through AIDA64 FPU.
The common sense of overclocking is simple, balancing the vcore and temperature, however the practice is not easy. Because of the system crash immediately, I am doubting the CPU temperature is not getting high as TJmax so I believe the watercooling system still can hold the heat. If the only thing I care about is the CPU frequency, to get 5.4Ghz, what should I do next?
Do I have to do these things？
1. Change memory settings, lower the dram voltage, the frequency, the timing.
2. Increase the VCCIO or VCCSA voltage.
3. Delid 9700k and add more radiators and increase more vcore voltage beyond 1.6v.
