possibly best cpu ever

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

so I just finished building my new pc. I have a gigabyte z390 UD motherboard and a i5 9600k cpu, the cpu core clock is 3.7ghz. so I go into my bios to check everything out and notice that my cpu is running at 4.3ghz at 1.1v is this normal or did I just get a damn good cpu?

That means your CPU is boosting up towards its maximum boost frequency which is 4.6Ghz on 1-2 cores IIRC.

 

It's expected behavior.


New Build (The Compromise): CPU - i7 9700K @ 5.1Ghz Mobo - ASRock Z390 Taichi | RAM - 16GB G.SKILL TridentZ RGB 3200CL14 @ 3466 14-14-14-30 1T | GPU - ASUS Strix GTX 1080 TI | Cooler - Corsair h100i Pro | SSDs - 500 GB 960 EVO + 500 GB 850 EVO + 1TB MX300 | Case - Coolermaster H500 | PSUEVGA 850 P2 | Monitor - LG 32GK850G-B 144hz 1440p | OSWindows 10 Pro. 

Peripherals - Corsair K70 Lux RGB | Corsair Scimitar RGB | Audio-technica ATH M50X + Antlion Modmic 5 |

CPU/GPU history: Athlon 6000+/HD4850 > i7 2600k/GTX 580, R9 390, R9 Fury > i7 7700K/R9 Fury, 1080TI > Ryzen 1700/1080TI > i7 9700K/1080TI.

Other tech: Surface Pro 4 (i5/128GB), Lenovo Ideapad Y510P w/ Kali, OnePlus 6T (8G/128G), PS4 Slim.

yea that's the max clock speed. but the what im really trying to figure out is that if my motherboard is pushing more Volts than normal to my cpu to cause an overclock

As long as voltage is under than 1.35v, you should be fine.

If you asking if 1.1V is normal stock, no it is not, you should be seeing 1.212V-1.248V. But you probably did get a VERY good CPU for it to do that stock.

ok so I just went back into my bios and this is exactly what it says.

 

CPU

Frequency 4307.15MHZ

BCLK 100.00MHZ

Temperature 20.c

Voltage 1.176v

 

I don't know  exactly what the bclk means

bclk means base clock. It is simply a clock speed that matches up a number of components in your system. Such as your cpu, ram, and a few other things. Rasing this to lets say, 101 with a cpu multiplier of 43 would raise your cpu clock speed by 1% rasing it to 4343. Note that it would also raise your ram clock by 1%. So if your ram was at 3200, it would go to 3232.
