I have done some reading on this CPU/MOBO combo and it sounds like 1.3 is the sweet spot for voltage, but really want to tinker this to my specific build. Any help would be appreciated especially screenshots from this MOBO's BIOS settings. I'm aiming for a a 4.8-5.0 OC as I'd like this to remain pretty quiet under full load. Thanks in advance!
i7 9700k @ 3.6
AsRock Z390 Phantom Gaming ITX/AC
NXZT Kraken X62 (replaced stock paste with arctic silver 5)
Corsair Vengeance @ 3200
Gigabyte GTX 1080
NZXT H400i for the case and stock fans for it.
Would really appreciate if someone could relate to your post/request, as my spec is really similar to yours:
i7 9700k @ default values
Asrock Z390 Phantom Gaming ITX/AC (default bios P1.20) tried to update bios from this site https://www.asrock.com/MB/Intel/Z390...index.asp#BIOS
but it made my pc wont post, and I have to CMOS reset
Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB @ default
NZXT H500i with Kraken X62
would really love to try to overclock this one, as my last OC was on i5 2500k and it seems ages ago..
also, if anyone wouldn't mind me asking, in this screen shot below, is my PC already using OC profiles? seems like the CPU speed and DRAM changing all the time (I haven't touch anything in the bios no in the ASRockATuning app)
sorry for the very newbie question
