    Zando Bob reacted to Jurrunio in Overclocking stability and temperature issues with my 9900k, please help!   
    MCE is an OC, because it violates Intel's max multiplier per working core count specification, just like XMP beyond the max supported frequency for a certain DIMM count for the CPU and board. 
     
    Besides no matter which way you do, voltage (or to be specific, minimum voltage it can dip to) needed to stabilize the same frequency never changes. If manual doesn't do well, MCE will do worse because it's more conservative with voltage.

    Zando Bob reacted to Damascus in What is the best case fan and is it worth buying?   
    Do you have any other high end fans?  While the ML pro are nice, I've used both he 120 and 140mm versions and been disappointed with both.  They're loud at mid-high rpms, have a low performance ceiling, cost too much compared to better products and are, at best, in the top 5th percentile when it comes to all around performance and high end fans.
     
    (You can take my words with a grain of salt, but I own/have owned 45+ mid to high end fans.  The ML are nice, but in the end their only novel feature is the maglev hub)

    Like I mentioned they have a few others, the iMac vs 90mm cannon and iPad Mini vs minigun are likely the best. The iPad mini one is especially cool. The minigun's ROF is so insanely high that 2-3 bullets go through the iPad before it even starts reacting to the first one, and with the slo-mo they do it's fucking epic to watch.

    MCE is not an OC, it's like XMP for the RAM

    "you have an absolute beast, there is n o reason at all to OC it."
    What? It's a K chip, you have every reason to OC it, only reasons not to would be if it's for a render machine or you don't have access to a decent cooler. Dialing in a decent core OC on these chips is braindead easy anyways.
     
    No. MCE = too much voltage like @Jurrunio pointed out. Turbo Boost should be on from stock lmao, I've never seen a modern mobo ever ship with that setting off. Even my boards from 2009 have Turbo Boost on by default. 

    XMP isn't magic, it's just a preset, factory OC for your RAM. It isn't somehow going to make the CPU temps better lol. 

    "Do nut mess with anything else, voltage ect....."
    This is just fucking stupid. Messing with "voltage etc" is the entire point of OCing, you want the highest clocks possible with the lowest voltage, for the best performance vs temps. 

     
    Usually don't advise an AVX offset, since you're not actually stable at the core clock it says in a non-AVX workload if you need an offset. IIRC the stock all-core boost of the 9900K is 4.7Ghz, if you run a 300Mhz AVX offset on a 5Ghz core OC it's just reverting to stock boost under anything with AVX. Why not just tune for 4.7 at that point then, since you know that'll be stable in every load thrown at it? Chances are you can pull the voltages way down too for even better temps, and unless you're running refresh rates in excess of 144Hz you're not likely to notice a massive difference. Would also reccomend cache/uncore OCing at this point too, you can get similar scores with a lower core/higher uncore than just pure core speed alone. This has remained true since 2008/2009 with X58 and the original i7s. 
     
    ^^^ Unless there's a fix you needed in the newer update, reverting back to the last stable BIOS is a valid option.

    Update, My 16GB 2400MHz (M393A2K40BB1-CRC) memory kits came in today. They work! 4 sticks, 16GB each, 64GB total. I got them to overclock to 2666. But If I try to run them at 2933, my CPU loses channels A and B  I think I got a weak IMC. I updated my previous post. I would recommend avoiding this kit and getting the 2666 kit instead.

    Zando Bob got a reaction from TVwazhere in PHANTEKS P350X bad airflow?   
    How on earth is the P350X bad airflow? It's excellent, the front panel is properly spaced and vented so the front fans can inhale air just fine, which is usually the limiting factor for airflow on most cases (assuming you go the conventional 2-3 fans front - 1 rear route).
