Hey friends,

I just purchased parts for my new rig. I'm using the 9700k, the z390 taichi, and an  h100i v2. I just wanted to hear your thoughts on what kind of overclocking I can get to in terms of volts and clock speed. I've never overclocked and I know it's a trial-and-error process but I want to see firsthand what other users think. Have a great day

You need to experiment yourself.

if you dont completly lost the silicon lottery probably 5ghz, with around 1.35V

I have the same parts on order except I'm using a 360mm AIO. It doesn't have hyperthreading so if it's anything like the difference between the 4690k and 4790k was, we should be able to get really good overclocks because hyperthreading in my experience adds way more heat than you'd expect. It all comes down to the silicon lottery at the end of the day though like others said so you're just going to have to figure out where you lose stability gradually like we all do. There's no way to tell exactly for each chip until you just go for it yourself.
