I9 7940x question
I’m getting a bit confused with all the modern OC options, I’ve read several x299 primers, but a couple of things are still not clear with me, can someone please help me, by confirming if my understanding is correct:
my processor is the i9 7940x > standard 3.1Ghz > all cores turbo 3.9Ghz > 1 core turbo max 4.3Ghz
With optimized defaults and 4Gh ram profile (got Patriot Viper 4400 CL19) my system runs 100% stable.
Question 1: is there a setting that makes ALL CORES run at the “turbo max” freq? While still keeping all energy savings (running 1.1Ghz when idle, only taking 0.9v) ? I don’t want a constant 4.3Gh OC
Question 2: air cooling, noise and heat are obviously the limiting factors here, understanding Skylake get’s quite hot, what kind of OC range is heat/eco friendly (read close to stock voltages) while still giving a small real world performance boost?
Question 3: if going for all cores, do i then need to remove the turbo max app from intel in Win10?
Sorry for the noob questions, just trying to understand if there is real world headroom, while keeping things cool & quiet. Not interested in max OC’s / benchmarks.
