9600k Overclocking at 5.1Ghz, safe to continue?

I have a i5-9600k on a MSI Z390I MPG GAMING EDGE AC motherboard.

I'm just using auto on most settings and only boosting the CPU Ratio step by step on all cores.

These are the settings i am using now:

CPU Ratio: 51

XMP Enabled

 

And these ones are set by auto:

CPU Core Voltage: 1.408V

CPU SA Voltage: 1.156V

CPU IO Voltage: 1.156V

DRAM Voltage: 1.356V

PCH Voltage: 1.056V

 

Temp at idle: 51C

Temp at max: 85C

 

I'm just waiting for it to crash in a stresstest but it's not doing that, is it safe to continue boosting the CPU Ratio until it crashes?

85c in my opinion is right at the edge of when you should get a better cooler. Out of curiosity, what cooler are you using for the 9600k?

8086k

noctua nh-d15s chromax w black cover

evga 3070 ultra

samsung 128gb, adata swordfish 1tb, wd blue 1tb

You can likely core voltage down to 1.31-1.35. 1.4 seems a bit excessive for only 5.1. Also, depending on your RAM speed, you can bump that voltage down too, but that doesn't really help anything so /shrug

I can't get a better one i have a Fractal Design node 202 with a Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev. B, so i can't fit a better one.

Try step down the voltage instead, it's kinda getting hot.

I don't think you should keep going on the overclock to be honest. If you're getting the performance you want out of the 9600k, then you'll be fine. If you want to keep overclocking, new case and new cooler I guess, which would be a bummer since it sounds like your build is new

My RAM is at 3000Mhz. So can i continue until the CPU crashes, and then lower the voltage?

I'm curious to what kind of full load, 85C 1.4v seems way too low. if 1.35-1.375 ends up being stable, thats a good chip, grats! if not, i'd recommend settling for 5.0 instead, not much difference at that point, coulda gone with better ram for more performance.

 

You also don't need 1.15 SA/IO for ddr3000, 1.1's probably enough, that's VERY high idle temps

I'm just using it for gaming so i don't need to get it higher, just doing it so se what i can get.

ohhh I see. I would do it out of curiosity if I had the 9600k, and I probably will try to see how good of a chip I get when i get my 8600k. If you can figure out a way to do it safely then go ahead.

I'm using the stress test in the intel extreme tuning utility.

Use aida64. See if it boots at 1.32v.

What is safe? Will i fry my CPU if the auto settings put on to high of a voltage?

have you tried aida64? Thats a thicc synthetic load right there.

Use the trial vers. All you get is a watermark.

No I don't think it'll fry but that is a thing for people who go really high. I highly doubt it'll happen to you, take the suggestions from people in the thread.

Oh lmao, no wonder. Try to just go down to 5GHz and lowering the voltage. Going to 5GHz with any processor with the node 202 is impressive.

I was thinking the same, that's why i thought i was doing something wrong. But is seems like the cpu cooler is good for its size!

Asus Realbench is free and doesn't require constant looping.

 

No wonder your temps are so high, it's in a node 202 lmao
