Recently I slightly overclocked my 8700k on the Maximus X using Raja’s Guide which works perfectly fine. I reached 4.7 Ghz with 1.84V and max temps of 71°C after 1-hour prime95.
What isn’t mentioned in the guide is the use of LLC. I’m using a quite moderate setting of LLC4 (so the adaptive voltage is set to 1.24 and the voltage under load Drops to 1.84). That means there is still a nice Vdroop as a „safety feature“.
With these settings and temps in mind, would you suggest going for higher voltages and frequency for a nice 24/7 oc, or just leave it as it is? Also, would you adjust the LLC?
Thank you for any tips! 🙂
Where are these legendary chips that are getting 5 at 1.28v? Mine is sitting at 4.4LOLS 1.25v and my AIO can't keep up. 80c under gaming load. 81c realbench benchmark, 83 cinebench. I even switched my whole set up into a different room to drop the ambient temp by 7f. Afraid to stress test it. Only posting because i'm trying to reach the same basic 4.7 clock speed, same chip, maximus x formula. LLC 5. If I go above 1.29v It shoots straight past 95c in realbench stress almost instantly. Cant even use prime95, instant crash.

This is my 3rd 8700k
i delided my 8700k and im using a after market copper ihs .
my cooler is 10 year old thermal take true black 120 ( looks like a black hyper 212 but lil thicker ) 2 x 12 mm fans on it
my 8700k needs 1.265 - 1.28 v to pass prime 95 26.6 small ffts and blend
temps on my air cooler after 3 hrs highest core hit 82 c thats peak .
if i was not delided i would need water cooling for sure .
i can run 5.1 ghz @ 1.34 v and pass prime 95 26. small ffts and i hit about 84 c max .
no avx offset and this is with my ram @ 4000 mhz and vccio and vcssa are @ 1.21v so that adds a little heat .
its just luck on the chip and once you delid it gets better .
if it makes you feel better my first 8700k at launch needed 1.37v for 5 ghz to pass prime 95 26.6 small ffts
2nd needed 1.26v for 5 ghz and 5.2 ghz needed 1,41 v
3rd is as good as my 2nd but 5.2 gzh needs 1.42 v
shoulda got an 8086, Bass 🙂 :
