My friend has an old i7 5820k with Asus X99a mobo and 4x8gb 3200 gskill ripjawV ram .
We try to find the stable overclock for 4,6 ghz , but always fail after 1-2 hour gaming. CPU Voltage is 1,32V already . Shall we go higher or let the 4,6 dream go away ?
Cooling is not problem , custom watercooling with 3 x 400x200mm radiator (6x 20cm fan ) . I have read somewhere 1,35 is still safe with water , but it seems a lot for me since stock is like somewhere 1,15V

Also : Is it worth to overclock the "uncore " speed ? (cache i think) , its 3,5 ghz atm .
Thanks

Hi,
Not sure why anyone would want to game at a high core multiplier
Most the warnings for core voltage are for 24/7 operation and yes 1.35v I believe is it
1.3v for 4.5 is pretty common so for 4.6 somewhere between and maybe 4.7 you're kind of working on the hardware lottery.

Cache sure 38 and offset mode with +0.175 has worked for me for years.
