Long time since I've posted.
Looking to really push my 8700k and DDR4 further then what I already have.
8700k is at an all-core of 5.2GHz with 1.38v set statically and LLC set to extreme as the Z370 Gaming 7 droops a lot otherwise. The CPU and board are on water under a Monoblock. I'd like to aim for 5.3GHz on two cores and keep the 5.2 on all cores, cooling isn't an issue at all.
DDR4 is Trident Z RGB 3000MHz 16-18-18-38 2T, 526 tRFC stock
Currently at 3400MHz 16-17-17-34 1T, 476 tRFC
As you can see I've been very lucky with the RAM, I'd like to do 3600MHz but I'm having issues with getting this to post.
System Agent set to 1.050v
VCCIO set to 1.1v
Will pushing those more help with more speed/better RAM clocks and what is the maximum that I can do? Keeping in mind the board is on water
