Silicon lottery, there's no way of knowing what works best for your CPU. You have to experiment to see what works.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B


Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.


Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

Depends entirely on your particular CPU, as they will all overclock differently compared to the others. 

What I can tell you is that you should stay under 1.4V and that you should start with a milder overclock instead of going straight for 5.1GHz, as that's not really a common OC for most people.

All cpus are different when it comes to overclocking. You can google some results and try those but it depends on silicon lottery maybe your cpu can't even hit 5.1. It's best to increase the vcore incrementally and run a few stress tests like; OCCT, aida64, intelburntest, cinebench r15/r20. realbench. Just to name a few I use.
