The 8700K that I ended up with booted and ran well with AVX offset 1 or 2 @5GHz with 1.350v. But to run 5GHz with AVX offset 0, I had to bump vcore to 1.380v.

What CPU power management settings are you using? In Clover?

The only thing I have set is PluginType=True.

Kext and kernel patching section?

Nothing related to Power Management in KextsToPatch. Only Enable Trim and External Icons Patch.

Mine is very simple.
  • Enable XMP
  • Sync all cores
  • 1.380v vCore
  • Load Line Calibration 6
