OC 9900x unable to get more than 4.5 Stable.
Let me give you a bit of back story the last machine I OC was a DELL 790i Ultra board where the concept was unlinking the FSB and manually changing the parameters.
Fast Forward to today it's time to build a Monster and the goal has been achieved, now it's time to get some numbers and I step into the BIOS and I am completely lost with the exception of CPU Frequency Ratio none of the lingo makes any sense to me.
Read some guides, and started tweeking but have been unsuccessful at every circumstance.
I heard this was the GO TO forums for Overclocking and could really use the experience and knowledge to overclock my machine to a stable status.
5GHz (if possible) would be happy to as close to this as possible.
What have I tried:
Setting my XMP profile to see what boosts I would get out of the RAM and was stunned to see it not post. Realized that the profile was asking for 43333Mhz and for some odd reason it did not like that at all. Brought down the Mhz to 4266Mhz and it posted.
I since then reverted back to stock in hopes I can be assisted in doing the CPU manually in conjunction with the RAM.
Another thing that is worrying me is that the machine is running hot I am wondering if I might of pasted incorrectly or not enough Grizzly was added to the CPU.
Hardware Info claims: 100 degrees I don't think this is accurate at all.
FANS:I have x3 120 in the front sucking in Air x1 120 sucking out from the back and x3 NOCTUA Ippc fans sucking out from the top.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
