Noob needs advice on i9/z390

Noob here, so try and go easy on me.

I run one program only that is hugely cpu intensive for 10 minutes max. Mainly cpu at 100%, ram only 50% and gpu is about the same occasionally

Problem is at work, this 10 minutes really ****s me waiting for it, so I thought I would ask some ideas about oc

Specs are

Operating System
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
CPU
Intel Core i9 @ 3.10GHz 33 °C
Kaby Lake 14nm Technology
RAM
32.0GB DDR 4 single channel
nb frequency 4300 mhz
dram freq 1200 mhs
fsb:dram 1:18

Motherboard
ASRock Z390 Phantom Gaming 4 (CPUSocket) 30 °C
Graphics

4095MB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 (MSI) 37 °C
Storage
931GB Samsung SSD 860 QVO 1TB (SATA (SSD)) 34 °C
28GB JetFlash Transcend 32GB USB Device (USB )


Just has a standard fan on the cpu.

A few questions.

1) Standard clock speed is 3.6ghz, but it can bump up to 5ghz or so. But i hear that there is a turbo mode (is this automatic by win10) to 4.7 ghz or so

Does this mean that the chip is really 4.7ghz, and oc will only squeeze another 300mhz, or is it really a 3.6 ghz chip that can be oc to 4.7 or so?

I was thinking of possibly getting the biggest, but moderately priced aio water cooler, and then trying a bit of gentle oc. (kinda wish i bought the chip that can do the one click oc by intel - I Know, it wouldnt be as good as anyone here, but I am time poor)

Really not looking at getting the maximum squeeze , just interested in how easy it would be, and in particular, about how much different things would be time wise, assuming the silicone lottery is average for me

All help much appreciated!

If time is your enemy and you can gain some by having more processing power i think that you are seriously crippling your self with a 9900k. You can get an amd 3950x and will give you literaly double the processing power of a 9900k and if youre dead set on intel you can go with a 10980xe. the 9900k is an amazing for gaming and some productivity but it cant compete with the productivity kings like the 3950 and 10980xe.

out of the box the 9900K has a 4.7 all core boost unless you disable turbo. a low base clock lets Intel claim lower power consumption numbers (3.6) and higher benchmark numbers (4.7).

unless you need Quick Sync you shouldn't be looking at Intel at all right now, grab a 3700X for less money or grab a 3900X/3950X if you want a step up from that.

if you want the best cooler on a budget then don't even look at an AIO. a "high end" AIO and a "high end" air cooler aren't going to get you drastically different temperatures but the AIO is going to cost 2x as much.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)
Intel i5 6400 Skylake @ X4 4588mhz (+69.9%)

Intel still has better single core and light core performance. This is especially noticeable in the work place where many of the common apps used are either single threaded or lightly threaded.

So, your normal day to day work will be better with an Intel, especially one that's overclocked.

What CPU are you currently using that takes 10 min to complete your "work"?
