It's not something we can teach, it's not something you can just pre apply, it's a gentle incremental group of steps you take to achieve the max overclock for that particular piece of silicon. Every chip is different so you have to come at each like a new overclock and start from scratch.Hi guys I’m thinking about over locking my i9 9900k to 4.9ghz but was wondering how to do it and if it was safe and stable?
thanks for your reply’s in advance
Rightio, thanksIt's not something we can teach, it's not something you can just pre apply, it's a gentle incremental group of steps you take to achieve the max overclock for that particular piece of silicon. Every chip is different so you have to come at each like a new overclock and start from scratch.
It's not something we can teach on this forum, you'd need to ask somewhere like Tom's Hardware which is an open forum.
There are plenty of guides on youtube also.
That's the point, it's not something we can tell you, it's something you have to find out for your chip. As said previously, every chips different, some will overclock easily by miles, others won't overclock at all.
Thanks for the reply.The H100x won't cut the mustard for a meaningful overclock. You would want to be running 5Ghz on all cores for there to be any point in doing it at all. At this point, the chip runs proper hot and needs some very good cooling.
I stress tested at 5.2Ghz on my chip and I was hitting 100°C on a H115i RGB Platinum (The best, IMO) at full chat. I pulled it back to 5.0Ghz for daily running and it has been great, with very reasonable temperatures even under heavy load. The H100x wouldn't get you that.
I would stick with stock speeds as clocking the chip at 4.9Ghz hampers your single thread performance. If you are into development or etc then it may be worthwhile but if you are an avid gamer I would just leave it as it is.
Yes, it should be installed on the M2 as the primary drive.
