    Ive been overclocking for many years....and part of the problem is folks getting a chip...setting a fairly substantial OC....getting thru one or 2 benchmarks and suddenly they announce a stable OC......stick it in there Signature.....start telling others there settings (and go by my settings) when in fact they're not "really stable" at all....this misinformation runs rampant on these OC Forums and folks starting thinking "everyone" should be reaching X.XX Ghz .....

    I remember getting my 980X Chip many years ago.....couldnt get it past 4.2 Ghz ( I think....) ...meanwhile according to all the OC Forums everyone was 5 Ghz OC Club.....take it all with a grain of salt....theres a reason there are no 5.2 Ghz 9900K Chips available at Silicone Lottery.......

    If you can reach 5 Ghz all cores with x45 - x47 Uncore.....around 1.3v....thats awesome!!!!

    Ive had my 9900K for maybe 7 weeks....but only have been home from work enough to play with it a few days....and can already see its going to be a 5 Ghz Chip......was hoping for 5.1 Ghz......but the added voltage isnt worth the 100 Mhz

    Thanks all for your advice!

    I've ran XTU stress test overnight (good 8 hours) so I'm happy that this is stable now - 5ghz @ 1.31v

    Good stuff!!! These 9900K Chips are pretty decent Chips with 8c/16t running at 5 Ghz !!!!!!

    XTU is good for a baseline but be wary if you do encounter any instability simply bump vcore 15 to 20mV.
