i9 9900k Help
Been trying my luck at this whole silicon lottery and idk if what I am doing is good or bad honestly. I am kind of new to this whole overclocking deal. I am on a custom water loop with two alphacool slim full copper rads 360mm, Ek d5 xres pump with 250 res, 6 thermaltake riing trio fans. Lian li dynamic. 32gb g skill trident z rgb 3200 (F4-3200C14D-32TZR), thermaltake irgbplus 850 gold, gigabyte aorus xtreme z390 mobo, gigabyte aorus xtreme waterforce 2080ti, 512gb samsung 970 pro, 1tb samsung 970 evo plus.
Memory is set at XMP profile 1 for 3200 at the moment. I do plan on overclocking the memory just trying to make sure CPU is set first. DRAM voltage is set to 1.5v.
CPU has been set to 5ghz.
enhanced multi core performance, intel speed shift, cpu enhanced halt, c3, c6/c7, c8, c10 state support, ring to core offset, race to halt, disabled, energy efficient turbo, voltage optimization - ALL disabled
CPU Vcore loadline calibration high
cpu Vcore 1.35
cpu vccio 1.2
cpu system agent voltage 1.2
avx offset 0
internal graphics disabled
Okay when running Prime 95 on smallest, its stable*, can run small FFTs for an hour no crashing or anything. My only concern is that after an hour my average cpu package was 100c, max was 101. My core temps were all mostly average 90c with 2 & 4 being stinkers at 98c with maximum of 103, I watched it spike there for a couple of seconds then back down to 98. core voltage is 1.3v across the board damn near.
I dont exhibit those kinds of temperatures in ANYTHING else besides running small ffts on Prime 95. Prime blend doesnt leave the 60s. Cinebench r15 max core temp is 80. aida 64 averages dont leave the mid 70s and the max was 91 peak and cpu package 80. memtesthelper nothing leaves 59. Heaven nothing goes above the 40s. 15 min of real bench which was weird a couple of times cpu usage dropped to 99% on a few cores while AVX remains 100. Regardless temps were averaging 84 with a spike to 90 on core 2&4 < those guys always run hotter than all the rest. I ran the prime 95 test by themselves but the rest of the tests were run with this chrome tab open as well.
* Ill address the asterisk earlier when talking about prime 95 stability. I can get lower vcore but it will fail prime 95 at about 55 minutes on smallest. My overall concern is, are my temps too high? Should I opt for going for lower voltage and failing the prime 95 small before an hour, sometimes its right after an hour, and getting better temps and still passing absolutely everything else or is this my limit on the silicon lottery for full avx? I havent tried anything higher than 5ghz honestly. Is there anything I can do to improve what I am at now?
