Hey guys,

Sorry if there is already a thread about this but I’ve been trying to follow this video on overclocking my 9700K:

I have the same CPU setting all my cores to 49x multiplier and I’m slowly increasing the Core IccMax by 5 Amps but I instantly get Current Limit Throttling even though I increase the Amps.

What am I doing wrong? When I increase the amps, I THEN get a power limit throttling “YES”.

My MOBO: Asus ROG STRIX Z390-F

I appreciate any advice or links to more useful threads.

Cheers, Jack

Don't use Windows tools to overclock desktop CPUs. Go straight to the BIOS.

XTU is made for laptops.

Yep as above, XTU is for laptops. Stick with the BIOS for OC'ing.
Gotcha, I’ll stick to BIOS. I tried overclocking but my max Current Cabapility was 140% I couldn’t go any higher.
I had synced all 8 cores to 50x multiplier for 5ghz.
I manually set my Core/Cache Voltage to 1.290v, disabled SVID, MultiCore Enhancement, I set my LLC to Level 6, my Turbo Mode has 4095 on both Long term Power Limit/Short time, Package power time to 127. Also my CPU Core/Cache Current Limit is at 255.75.
I’m just trying to understand where I’ve gone wrong, it’s all in roughly safe values.

Current capability does nothing unless you're on LN2. You won't max out the VRM with a casual 5GHz OC.

What could possibly be giving me BSOD?
CPU can't do 5 GHz at 1.290V. Either increase the voltage or drop the LLC. Or simply decrease the frequency.

Just a tip. I use these settings for my adaptive turbo. You can use same kind of settings with 5ghz all core and still have all c-states enabled. You can probably use a lower vcore. Your turbo and power limit settings is ok.

Wow. You must have a killer cooler. I'm sure my dark rock pro 4 can't handle these settings.

The issues I have with my 9700k is that the temps are fine @5GHZ on stock ram settings, however, when I enable XMP, the temperatures soar and it crashes, already at 4,9.

It's probably due to VCCIO/VCCSA. I don't know, I have no experience with inferior platforms but at least on Ryzen the SOC voltage affects core temps a lot and the mobo increases it by itself when you enable XMP or overclock your RAM manually. My guess is either IO or SA voltage goes up by default when you enable XMP and that causes higher core temps.

I have a Kraken X62. I use LLC 1, so my load vcore on all cores is between ~1.26-1.3V. Yes don't use XMP. If you are unsure of your timing settings. Download AIDA64 and go to motherboard -> SPD and check timings (take a picture) and test them in bios. Add VCCIO/VCCSA voltage when needed. I would recommend getting CPU stable before testing memory settings.
