9900K 5.4 ghz question

I was able to get my 9900k to a stable 5.3 GHZ @ 86 C on RealBench with an Auros Master, which makes me think I have some room to spare for 5.4 GHZ. I'm able to do daily tasks and gaming without interruption with the below @ 5.4

My settings are:
CPU v.core 1.430
vcore calibration @ UltraExtreme (Last out of 8 in hierarchy)
hyperthreading off
CPU internal ac/dc load line to Performance
Enhanced Multi-Core Performance On

I have run both InterBurn and RealBench in 5.4 but they freeze along with my mouse cursor in the beginning for about 7-10 seconds and then goes to blue screen. I have upped the voltage numerous times but mainly get the screen freeze. What am I missing to get this baby stable?

Oh wow you have one golden chip there. I can't add anything to the discussion except to say I've been following 9900K overclocking for a while now and 5400MHz is just beyond the frequency wall for a lot of chips. Hang on to that one for sure.

At that frequency it is only "stable" for whatever your consider your real-world use cases. I doubt it is actually stable even at 5.1 GHz if you run IBT for a few hours.

Are you also overclocking your memory and/or uncore?

You can do a *LOT* better by reducing the loadline calibration and changing VRM switching frequency to 300 khz.
Ultra Extreme LLC is hurting your stability by a *LARGE* amount.

Try LLC: Turbo (Not UEX) and 1.450v bios set and VRM switch=300 khz. Watch it work.

Thanks for your thoughtful replies. My memory is at 3800 right now from a 3200 C16 Ripjaw V.

I was told from another forum that I might be overdoing the LLC a tad too. I will try it!

RealBench benchmark or stress test?

I happened to have a ~5400MHz BIOS profile saved, so I thought I would give the RB 2.56 benchmark a try.

Is it CPU Vcore PWM Switch or VAXG PWM Switch, Falkentyne?

It was a stress. Maybe you have some insight to offer?

Did not try stress.

We have different motherboards, so I do not know what to tell you.

Can you run CineBench R20 at 5400MHz?
