Did you test full shows or just trailers?

I tested full shows. Even, I resumed where I left on "See". It's really great. BTW shiki-id= is not changing your actual board-id number.

I test it with;

Code:
ioreg -lp IOService | grep board-id

And it's using my actual 19,1 SMBIOS board-id.

@pastrychef I tried first time the Overclock and I don't get any performance.

I used these settings;

Enhanced Multi-Core Performance Disabled (I tried Enabled also)
CPU Clock Ratio 50
X.M.P Profile 1
CPU Vcore 1.375V

And the Geekbench score is;

Before 36517
After 36815

BTW, how can I be sure, I am working on 5GHz?

Wow. 1.375v is very high... Be careful with such high voltage...

You can try the following guide on overclocking:

No, improvement. Many parameters in the video, don't include in the new BIOS. Geekbench score after following the video; 37015.

Enhanced Multi-Core Performance Disabled (I tried Enabled also)
CPU Clock Ratio 50
X.M.P Profile 1
CPU Vcore 1.280V
Load Line Calibration Turbo
C States Disabled

Ring Ratio and Uncore Ratio are the same things? In new BIOS no Uncore Ratio anymore.

Enable the Enhanced Multi-Core to allow all cores to go to 5GHz.
Uncore Ratio is called something else in the new BIOS... I can't remember the name...

Yes. I just checked and I am assuming they renamed uncore to ring ratio.

Thank you. I tried but it didn't help.

Enhanced Multi-Core Performance Disabled (I tried Enabled also)
CPU Clock Ratio 50
Ring Ratio 47
X.M.P Profile 1
CPU Vcore 1.280V
Load Line Calibration Turbo
C States Disabled

And Geekbench score 37015

Without these settings, my Geekbench score is 35600 between 36610.

If I do not get any performance why should I use Overclock?

It doesn't make any sense... Your setting sound correct but you are not seeing any benefits...

Exactly. I don't get it why? I thought, maybe this is the effect of the new BIOS.

Do you have other apps running in the background that can be affecting benchmark scores? Even the Messages app can affect scores...
