Hey there! I was able to reclaim my old account here and wanted to ask a few questions!

I've been able to be "stable" at 5 GHz with 1.3 vcore on my 9700k, but I want to see how low I can get it as well as really test stability. I have heard that p95 isn't really the flavor anymore, so what are some good stress test tools? So far I've just been using 3dmark but here are my results!

P95 is good but most people don't know how to use it.
Use 26.6 if you don't want AVX, I know it can be disabled in later versions but I've had the .txt file revert back to using AVX after crashes before so it's easier if I just use 26.6.
For testing the core use a custom size of 1344k to 1344k with FFTs in place, that's for quick stressing to get in the ballpark. Once you've settled on something use Small FFT for a couple hours.

For cache I use Small FFT again, for ram and the entire system I use Blend.
TimeSpy and Firestrike aren't great for stressing GPUs let alone CPUs lol They'll usually run on some pretty unstable clocks.

Good to know, thanks. Timespy was crashing on my boards "auto oc" so I'm guessing that it's probably garbage to use that option. Was hoping it'd be similar to XMP profiles.

I need to research AVX, I have heard a lot of people mentioning it but I don't really know what it is.

Thanks for all the info, gives me a good starting point!

...the new Cinebench R20 is harder and takes longer to run than their previous version / R15...not to mention adding about 4 - 5C to the load temp. I would also consider the AIDA stress tests.

Was looking at AIDA but I want something I can use further than a month from now. Maybe I'll wishlist it.

I'll check out cinebench dont know much about that one!

Aida is a great utility but it's terrible for stressing your core OC. The only things I like about it are only on the paid version. The RAM benchmarking is top notch.



Temps are straight but you need to use HWinfo so you can get a somewhat accurate reading of all your system's sensors, vcore being an important one.
There's been a handful of threads just in the last month or so where people were getting whack readings from HWmonitor. HWinfo is still getting very frequent updates for modern parts.


Here's the OC guide you should be following, nothing has changed since Kaby Lake except core count and probably lithography so this guide is still the go-to (Darkwizzie makes great guides):
