Correct! The common ground for retail 8600ks seem to be right around the 5.0GHz mark. And thanks!
5.4Ghz is amazing. What voltage does it require to hit 5.0GHz? Also could you clarify the voltage used to hit 5.4GHz? In your video you say 1.45 volts but the description of this build states 1.36 volts.
There is a german hardware seller called "Caseking", they sell pretested and delidded cpus, that can be overclocked
easily. For example an selected i7-8700k that can be overclocked to 5.2Ghz stable. But they are often pretty expensive and can cost between 300-900€. Here is their website if you are intersted, they ship to the US aswell.

Thank you and yes, the description was a typo. I've done so much OC-ing across different processors, it's hard to keep track. This one was 5.4GHz @ 1.45V.
That's impressive to say the least. Does anyone know how high of a bin this would be? Like top 1%?
it was an engineering sample, meaning it was purpose manufactured by intel to push the limits of the 14nm++ architecture. if you would like odds, i would venture a guess into the one in 500,000 or 1,000,000 realm as they are intentionally built and are of a rare breed in the consumer runs from intel. I have yet to get a good board to overclock my 8600k on, cause i've got other concerns, like a bigger desk and art supplies, but i will look into how my chip handles overclocking when i get to my next batch of upgrades For my PC.
