Playing with new 9700k 5.5GHz
 
Was playing with my 9700k trying to see how high it can go with how low of volts. She was posting 5.5 at 1.275V vcore and letting me run quick benches in Windows. Good silicone? Cooling 2x480s. The 9900ks arrives tomorrow and I was thinking of selling this 9700 but now I don’t know..?

What do you mean by quick benchmark ?

The Pook 01-03-2020 08:55 AM

silicon. silicone is for boobies.

does it really matter what clock it can hit if it's not stable? it's kind of neat but it's irrelevant if it's not a clock you can run without issues daily.

Just cinebench because it doesn’t take very long to get a line in the sand. SS attached. I might try over 1.3V to get 5.5 passing as the temps never reach 60, but idk. Let me know where you think I should go from here guys!! :)

R20 cinebench
@ 5.2GHz - 3988
@ 5.4GHz - 4156
@ 5.5GHz - fail

I thought this was overclock.net, not stockstableclocks.net ?

With that logic you stated, no one should even attempt 7.2 ghz LN2 runs since it's clearly not going to be stable at 7.2 ...

is OP some secret LN2 guru or are you just arguing for the sake of arguing? OP is not at 7.2, he's at 5.5. If OP had a 7.2 9700K my post would have been very different.

OP; if you're a secret LN2 OCer trolling the OCN forum for the luls, I apologize, please forgive me.

You were knocking the guy for booting at 5.5 ghz on a 9700k which is an impressive overclock to be able to load windows and run some light benches.
My 9900k isn't Prime AVX stable at 5 ghz either. Gets way too hot if I put enough vcore into to pass prime (115C). But it's 100% stable in all other benches and games.

Where do you draw the line on stability? Whether you can shove 200 amps into a CPU and not have it crash?

boostedevo 01-03-2020 12:56 PM

Lol sorry guys, I’m pretty much a nub and haven’t been around here since 2012 when the 3930k was around. This is my first new build since then and was just seeing how high I could get the 9700k starting at lower voltage. Any suggestions or opinions bad or good is fine :) I was thinking upping the llc and trying to get 5.5 to pass cinebench. Or just throw more vcore at it :)

The Pook 01-03-2020 01:08 PM

if you're going to retire it then kill it with fire, but I wouldn't push more than 1.45v for a few runs if you plan on keeping it/selling it.

you can play with BCLK to get a few extra mhz if you can't bump up the multiplier, MCE IME don't kick in and block above 103 unless you have a non-K CPU. I can run well over 200 BCLK on my Taichi. Might not get you 5.6 but might get you 5550mhz. Just watch the RAM speed because it'll go up with BCLK.

I've got a 5.3 CPU validation in my sig and an HWBOT account full of OCs that aren't stable but it doesn't sound like what the OP is chasing, but here's my thoughts on stress tests since you seem to want them for whatever reason. Last time I ran Prime95 on my 4690K.

sounds like he's replacing his 9700K with a 9900K and the 9700K is either going to set on a shelf or it's going to be sold, and the former sounds kinda dumb because while it may be impressive it's still no unicorn.
