I personally don’t think u lost the lottery. Almost all 9900ks can easily be stable at 5ghz all cores. It sounds like your cooling solution is the issue. I’m using a Corsair h150i 360 rad with a delidded 9900k under a der8auer OC frame with liquid metal as my TIM. At 5ghz all cores on prime95 small ffts I’m maxing 65-70c. Currently I’m stable at 1.4v 0 AVX offset 5.3 ghz all cores after tweaking my core cache ratio. What’s your current cooling solution?I'd love to hear how you did this! I'm having problems getting my 9900k to be stable at 5ghz and my temps are >100 when I go near it - with AVX offset down 5. My cpu is only stable in the 1.33v range. I'm starting to think I lost the lottery.
Are you sure you're on 5.2GHz? I'm only on 5GHz right now and my scores are almost the same and I'm on air cooling.
