Overclocking 10900k results, bins and discussion
10900k ES, retail stepping 5, Q0. Board: Asus Maximus 12 Extreme, 2x16 GB dual rank Gskill 3200 mhz CL14 @ 1T
Absolute minimum die-sense load voltages required to pass Prime95 small FFT AVX disabled and Realbench 2.56/AIDA64 "Stress FPU"
Note reducing ring ratio did not improve stability.
*These are LOAD voltages at Vmin, not bios voltages!*
SP Score: 94
4.7 ghz/4.4 ring: 1.021v (VCCIO 1.05v, VCCSA 1.10v is most stable)
4.8 ghz/4.5 ring: 1.048v (VCCIO 1.05v, VCCSA 1.10v is most stable)
4.9 ghz/4.6 ring: 1.083v (VCCIO 1.05v, VCCSA 1.10v is most stable)
5.0 ghz/4.7 ring: 1.128v (VCCIO 1.05v, VCCSA 1.10v is most stable)
5.1 ghz/4.8 ring: 1.172v (Prime95 small FFT no AVX and CB R20, AIDA64 stress FPU tested @ 1.181v load)
5.2 ghz/4.9 ring: 1.235v (Prime small FFT no AVX, CB R20 and Battlefield 5 tested only)
5.3 ghz: Falkentyne visits the Volcano God
(1.320v+ load voltage required to play Battlefield 5 without a CPU Cache L0 error, temps 80C+)
Cooling: Arctic Liquid Freezer II 360 AIO.
Retail chip #2 (bought from newegg): seems the *exact* same (tested the "Instability detected" Load vcore points in AIDA64) up to 5 ghz, 5.1 ghz. Falls off hard at 5.2 ghz. 5.3 ghz needs at least 1.4v LOAD voltage.
(SP score unknown, installed in a Z490 Aorus master).
