Overclocking to 9900K


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone I have a board z370-a prime and processor I9 9900K The NH-D15 Black told me the Z370 extensions are less good for this processor but I started doing anyway Currently the voltage 1.26 frequency 4.9 GHz The maximum temperature is 74 in PRIME95 How far can you stretch this processor in your opinion? What is the voltage that must not work? And what is the maximum temperature that must not be exceeded?

And is it worth doing Dalid for this processor? I was told it was soldered and some say it can be done

Would appreciate help

Try to raise the product a bit, run tests and you will see that it is stable, you will find what the limit is before crashes and then you will drop two multiples and run a stability test for an entire night.

In terms of temperatures in my opinion up to 90 in the Israeli summer in a stability test that adopts the whole processor is a spin (in normal uses usually the load will be significantly lower unless you are dealing with renders).
Regarding voltage I do not know the specific processor enough to help, but I am sure a short search on Reddit will help you.

Beyond that is a waste of your time, the difference is negligible and there is a good chance that you will have stability problems in the future even if the overclock currently works and in any case solutions Expensive or delidding is just a waste of money and it is better that you save for the next upgrade and that's it.


Edit: Another small note, if the goal is performance in games then the difference will be negligible unless the video card is really strong and the screen resolutions are low.
