I easily got like 8000 out of the 14900K, but my fastest kit is rated for 7400 only, so 8000+ is hard to test

Any low end boards to test and less fashionable vendors? As ir_cow has suggested to me in the past he thinks that clock walls on memory might be due to poor boards.

Doesnt need to be a full on bench test process, just maybe stick hardware on some budget board, see if it fights you when trying to boot and then maybe short 10 minute ram test or something. As usually if something is unstable it will get errors that quickly.
