Upgraded CPU and mobo - overclocking
Hi I recently updated my CPU and mobo 9700k And I’ve had it to fort the whole time so the mobo Automatically Over clocks to 4.9 Which gives me an idle temperature of 24° and on 70% load I get 39° the vcore that automatically selects shows .76 to .97 in cpuz. I’ve used the XMP For Gskill Trident Ram 3600 15c up from default 2133 set by mobo Which added no temperature increase then I tried without XMP setting my ram overclock And got the same temperature results. Would overclocking the ram to 4400 BE Ill-advised? I could only get to 4000 on my old z97 mobo. Also, I would like to push the CPU to a 5.2 overclock. Do I have to use a fixed voltage or can I let it fluctuate like it does at default on auto? The mobo will most likely set a very low voltage as it sets .97 for 4.9 GHz at its current setting. 280mm water cooled. 2 Static fans pulling air from outside through drives and one fan pulling air out of full tower. Radiator is push-pull.
