Ahh..I hear you have to tread carefully when delidding an i9-9900k?
I delidded and used cryonaut liquid metal . I have an ek velocity cpu block, and 2 Alphacool Nexus radiators . A 360 and a 280mm . Liquid is surging via a D5 with Bitspower Mod top, pump kit with a 250ml res up on top.
Prime 95 for 47 minutes. Lexmark, Real bench and HW monitor for cpu stressing.
I should have went with a z390 master or Extreme for OC'ing my 8086.
I feel that the Asrock Z370 Tai chi may have been a bottleneck for the 8086. I'm mostly in it for content creation so I chose the designare.
However with a good overclocking board and with Ram timings tightened right up, I have no doubt I can hit 5.6 ghz on liquid Pastrychef
Geez. That's a crazy elaborate cooling system. I'm just on a Noctua NH-D15S. LolThe Hottest ever on Prime was 73 on 1 core than dropped back to Mid- 60's
I get approx 80C or so in Prime95. When I run Prime95, I try to leave it running for at least 2 hours.
I've booted to 5.2GHz on 1.35v but backed it back down to 5.0GHz on 1.270v and "Turbo" LLC for 24/7 use. I'm going to see if I can get 5.1GHz stable on 1.30v or less and monitor temps. If it's in the mid-80s on Prime95, I'll keep it.
This is on my Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming. On my Z370-G, I needed 1.330v for a stable 5.0GHz.
The superior VRM of my Z390 over my Z370 is clearly evident. However, I have found my Gigabyte Z390 to be extremely finicky about RAM. My G.Skill RAM would not run reliably at it's XMP profile and I had to loosen timings slightly. The same kit of RAM runs perfectly on my Asus Z370... I wish there were more mATX choices with good VRM.
