9600kf Overclocking

Hi all, I've been attempting to optimize my 9600kf @ 5.0ghz. Currently, I am fully stable @ 5.0ghz with a -2 AVX, a 45 Ring, at 1.37 core voltage. Those are the only settings I have tweaked to get there. I currently get mid 70s temperatures during a 1-2 hour gaming load, and I hover at 78-80c during Realbench & Cinebench. (Corsair H100i)

I would like to lower my voltages to optimize heat output, however I can't seem to get any lower than 1.37 core voltage without crashing during real bench & aida64 stress tests. I'm under the belief that this is quite high for a simple 5.0ghz, but I could be wrong. I'd love some help/pointers on how to optimize my overclock better, and how to tweak the other voltage settings properly. Thanks for any input

Yes the voltage could be better but that depends from the quality of the silicon chip, so you don't have much room for tweaking.

Maybe a different board would grant you a lower voltage, and i guess that AIO runs at top speed and lastly the best cooling results would be achieved if the AIO is mounted at the front of the casing.

Also you have 4 ram modules installed. That may have a negative effect on the overclock potential of the CPU as the MC is integrated on the CPU chip and it may lead to a higher voltage as both parts are overclocked, the CPU and the ram obviously.

Still, mid 70s temperatures whilst gaming, is a good number for an overclocked processor.

thanks for this response. I actually went in and tweaked a few things:

lowered my voltage to 1.36, upped the RAM voltage to 1.4, turned off C-state & set voltage mode to Override to prevent any swings. So far so good, and temps are noticeably lower than before.

Good work. It seems that setup has some potential then. ;)

And take a look at that guide too.

You’ll want to play around with LLC/Load Line Calibration/vDroop.

If you have XMP enabled then you’ll want to adjust the VCCIO and VCCSA.

On the Asus forums is a guide to overclocking the 7700k. I would suggest reading that since it covers a lot of bases. The 6, 7, 8, and 9 series overclocks pretty much the same.
