I bought a 9900k a couple months ago and I am wondering if there is anything else I can do to improve my oc.
I am coming from a 2600k so I have not overclocked a CPU in 8 years.

My Specs:
Dark Rock Pro 4
Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro
Vulcan Z 3200mhz Ram
Corsair HX850w
GTX 1070

Here is a HW64 screenshot after 10 minutes of AIDA64. (tested for an hour and it didn't bsod)

Should I try other stress test programs?

I think I have a pretty good overclock right now, but I would like some input from the knowledgeable people on this forum.

If you need information about my bios settings let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Temps look good as well as the volts. I would test with AIDA64 a bit longer than 10 mins though. If its stable I call that a mice OC. Welcome to the forums . :)

What he said! ^^

Looks good to me... as well, but yeah, test A LOT longer than 10 mins...

In AIDA I check off CPU/FPU/Cache checked off... If you want to test memory, do it seperately.
