    Currently best AIO that can beat Noctua D15?

    Wait for the new EK stuff...i have the Predator 240 1.1, and it is just awesome...its silent, keeps the overclocked 5820k cool and it is expandable!

    i7 5960x overclocking profile

    You probably have a few oc profiles built into your BIOS...these will do what you are looking for...for anything more, you will have to do it manually by yourself.

    Ryzen 4c/8t benchmark

    Sure, but there is no same arhitecture chip that i know of where the unlocked 4 core chip would clock less than an unlocked 8 core chip. And since their 8 core chips clock at around 4.0 to 4.2 ghz, the 4 core chips are highly unlikely to clock lower. I think it is safe to say they will clock higher.

    6900k, 4.6@ 1.410vcore. Do i keep it?

    These voltage "walls" are there becouse of electron migration(to prevent it). So becouse for example the 14nm process is a lot smaller than say 32nm, the max voltage has to be smaller. In theory...

    Best TV under 50''

    True about OLED, the screens really have a gorgeous picture...but there is a problem with OLED...burn-in and pixel lifetime...if you use the TV only for watching movies and TV, its ok, but if you use it as a computer monitor, where the picture can stagnate for hours at a time, OLED is problematic.
