- 563 (0.11/day)
Ocing to 5.3 and actually not crashing under load is two different things. I can boot 5.3Ghz as well, but it will lock up under stress test without 1.5v. We are talking all-core yes and not a single core turbo?There are 12900K chips that hit 5.3 with ease under 1.3v - my 12600k does that as well. A binned chip won't need that much voltage to hit that clock.
I really wish they would move away from single core boost though. Almost all games now days use all your cores, so it would be nice if they boosted based on watts, not on core load.
I see these same posts every generation. People set a overclock and think its stable because it doesn't crash in the game they are playing. That isn't OC stability. Give me photo proof of 5.3 All-core 5.3 @ 1.3 with Prime95.
