My i7 11700kf seems stable on 5GHZ at 1.39v … I know other people flex about having lower voltages for the 5GHZ. But my question here is , is that normal? The 1.39?

Dude, 1.39V seems like a good value, I want to ask you something, what is your motherboard and cooler, I'm planning to buy 11700K and do 5.0GHZ

Hi,
Yeah you really need to fill in and enable showing system spec's so they follow your posts.

My opinion, is no.....that is on the high side. not bat shit insane high, but high none the less.

I use 1.31V for 5.1 GHz all core i9-9900K for comparison

There is of course the silicon lottery and you may have an under performer but I really think you could get that voltage lower for better temps.

Also, forego running ABC and XYZ benchmarks putting insane loads on the CPU, unless, you actually do work that involves putting those kinds of heavy loads on it. If it runs your games you play or programs you run fine, who gives a shit if some benchmark spits out an error or makes your PC crash. My opinion is its better to test with your own real world applications, not benchmarks. Because if you never use those heavy loads that would make you think your OC is not stable, then it is of no value to you to spend time making tweaks to the OC settings to get it to run during loads/applications you never actually do outside of posting bragging and e-peen rights on a forum lol

My i7 11700kf seems stable on 5GHZ at 1.39v … I know other people flex about having lower voltages for the 5GHZ. But my question here is , is that normal? The 1.39?

I'm curious...
What is the CPU power draw and temperature at these settings?

A screenshot of HWiNFO64 sensor window under 100% CPU load, like the following will answer my question nicely.

skatter bencher was on 1.8V with that CPU. 1.5V are even in the "frames" @ 5,2/3Ghz

the i9 has got a different architecture.

compared to the predecessor i7 10xxx the 11th Gen is a real heathead. AND VERY thirsty. i had both. the 11th forced to buy a new PSU at least
