    @EasyLover - that seems like a great temperature. What are you cooling it with? I have been trying to stay below 70c ... but it has been hard. I am cooling with a EK monoblock on my ME8... and the water temps are generally in the 32C range, so I get a delta of as much as 40C on the CPU.

    You are not group tuning? I'm using EK Predator 360. What is your ambient temp like? So far I've failed to achieve 4.8 on this chip. 4.7 is going strong.

    I am using group tuning, but in the past I have started with group, then pushed a bit with one and two cores a bit higher. I have so far found this to be harder to accomplish compared to my other M6F (Maximus VI Formula with a i7 4790k ) computer.

    Ambient temperature is in the 21C range. I think data that would be interesting across many systems would be ΔT from cooling loop into proc, voltage on proc, T on proc and T on other side of the proc. I have all of these data points for one of my systems and what I observe is typically a 1 to 2C temperature increase across the processor (water) at steady state, no load, and not much different at full load. Processor temp at steady state (no load) tends to be +2 to 3 C over cooling input.

    I would experiment with taking off the cooling block and re-applying the thermal compound, but I decided to do rigid tubing this time around ... and that really makes doing things like that loads of work .

    I have not tried to go above 4.6 yet, but have found it to be completely stable with just the basics - so that is next...

    Great guide as always Chino !

    Maximus viii formula - 6700k at 4.8GHz with 1.472v, I didn't run a stress test but it's game stable.

    1.472 VCore. I'm thinking of trying 4.8 with 1.4 as well. Running 4.7 at 1.3 stable.

    Very helpful guide Chino. I've had a hellluva time getting my new rig running smoothly, but you and several others here in the forums have really helped me.
    Im pretty sure I didn't luck out and get a diamond chip like I did with my 4790k, but Im liking the Hero Alpha and the 6600k is a pretty impressive processor.
    I've still got more tweaking to go, but I've managed 4.6ghz @ 1.42v. Which I know is fairly high V, but it just didn't wanna post anywhere near 1.35v. Temps have been great though ! I've seen low of 15C and high of 68C under full load! I still wanna see if I can maintain stability at a little lower voltage.

    How do you feel about BCLK over clocking? This is my first DDR4 board and my Titan Z's XMP sets it to 102.10 BCLK. So when my cpu multiplier is at 45, it's actually running at 4.594. I think the ram has given me a harder time getting stable than the cpu.
    I've passed Realbench stability tests for 1hr without fail, but I still feel like there's more room for performance improvement. I swear it feel like my Hero 6 /w the 4790k is faster than this pc lol! Especially when it comes to loading programs, which really strikes me as odd because Im using one of the fastest new NVME SSD's in this Hero Alpha build.

    Tweaking the BCLK might help you squeeze a few extra megahertz from your overclock.

    Its pretty neat how they managed to do away with the necessity of being tied down by cpu straps. Such a wide range of BCLK adjustments now.

    Ive made some real progress since my last post. Got the voltage much lower than previously. Im down to 1.375 now. I tried 1.35 after some tweaks and managed to make post, but comp crashed when I tried to benchmark it.
    Got my BCLK up to 105. cpu 4.62ghz , ram 3599mhz, cache 4200, and Im getting MUCH better temps than before. Lowest Ive seen is 15C idle and on my last benchmark temps didn't go higher than 60c! I was really amazed. Cores were reaching 72C back when I had the voltage at 1.42. Perhaps I have more headroom for OC than I thought?
