You can easily boost fps by 5-10% by timingstweaking even if stuck at 2666. Do you know what ram-die you have? I have a i5 8400 with crappy Hynix AFR running 2666 13-16-16. Set volt to 1.4V. If you have Micron E/H or Hynix C/D/J I bet you can run 12-14-14 and Try getting tRFC down, get trrds and l to 4/4 or 4/6, tfaw to 16, twr to 12 or 10 and trtp half of that. Trefi as close to 65k as possible. If you have Hynix A/C/D/J try trfc 304, 312 or 320, if Micron try 384, 392 or 400. If you have Micron B 8gb try 256, 264 or 272 or Hynix A you can try 272, 280 or 288.
Undervolting you CPU will probably make it run allcore faster since you free up more pwr-budget. Try offset og -50 on cache and core, they might do a lot more. My 8400 do - 120 core - 160 cache.
I don't know what ram-die I have as every time I look for a tool, there are warnings that the tools may not be accurately reading the chipmaker. I'd certainly like to optimize those RAM timings as currently it's running at 2666 13-13-13-30 (it's a 3200 16-16-16-36 set) set manually but nothing else set up. Do you have an app/tool rec to pin down what I have, or do I need to remove a heatsink and look directly? In any case, I'll try out some of those timings especially if they're lower than my auto-set ones.
I don't need to UV the CPU as I just raise the power limit in Throttlestop and anyway, this CPU doesn't tolerate any UV it when run at all core turbo 4.5GHz. I game at full speed but when running something that does use all cores >90% (Handbrake), I use it at 4.2GHz with a -0.04V undervolt which saves some power (~115W vs. 135-140W) with minimal speed reduction. No UV tolerance at 4.5GHz ACT is just sample variation (maybe cheap Mobo, too - ASRock B360M Pro4), as all other Intel CPUs I've owned have UV'd very well but they're also all 3.8GHz and lower @act, including the previous i5-8400 in this same system.
