Oh no, they were 100% valid, you just needed to find the options. That's all a part of it everyone has to go through. Most can... some, can't.In brief, your instructions are valid only if a user knows where to go into the bios.
Correct. According to silicon lottery, ~22% reach 5.1 GHz.........but that is at 1.23V, lol. Your chip is a silicon lottery loser it seems... be happy at 5 GHz.ummm. I just read that only 20% of all 10700k made will reach a 5.1. That is a bit scary
I guess it's a good thing most(all?) of those were mentioned/defined in one way or another in this thread (the overclocking guide I linked too?).A few days ago before overclocking, had you asked me what LLC is I would have said a Limited Liability corporation. Had you mentioned Tj. Max, I would have told you it was a discount clothing store. Had you mentioned V core, It would have made me think of a V 12 engine....and so on and so forth.
So getting to 5.1 or 5.2 is all about cooling? So if the cpu was cold we could do it?
Why don't people put the aio in a freezer? with two tubes going out to the pc? Or why arent huge external radiators used with many fans? Or why should we not use a car inter cooler?
Your next step is not to delid. First, your CPU uses solder TIM, not paste. It's good. The problem is the amount of wattage you need to cool through a small die as I said earlier. Second, if we're 100 posts into basic overclocking, I fear what delidding will bring, lol. Delidding doesn't help much at all in this case. A few/several degrees. It isn't worth the risk (for most anyone).seems like the next step is to delid the processor?
It seems amazing to me that Intel do not use better thermal paste, and make absolutely no effort to lower temperatures.
You don't understand because the logic you're applying is wrong.Not quite sure I understand the logic.
That's cute, but no.They should advertise temperatures instead of Hz. Stock 30c and under load 60c. Let the consumer decide what to clock at. Duh! Intel.

That's cute, but no.
It can be delidded, but isn't worth it. The gains just aren't there for normal users.
As mentioned previously, your CPU is a silicon lottery loser in the first place so there is a lot going against you in such an endeavor.
lol, no it would not have been better to order an older processor to delid and overclock.
Enjoy what you have.
Yes it makes sense that changing fans didn't lower temps much.
Because some processors can have that much of a temp drop. But typically it is with processors that use TIM instead of solder TIM and 20C is typically a 'best case' result. Commonly you see somewhere around 10C give or take a couple.
Two last questions :
Had this processor been one of the winners. Would it overclock to 5.2-5.3 because it's temps are lower? In other words, are winning processors overclockable to higher hz because they are cooler? Or do they simply overclock higher and tolerate higher temps?
2. 100% is 100%. When XTU stresses cpu at 100% temps go up to 75. When cinebench renders, temps go higher. Do some of these stress test applications go over 100%? Is tjmax always 100c? Or does it vary from winner to loser?
Silicon Lottery, who I assume you are referring to, guarantees clock speeds on all cores and threads. They do use an AVX offset.there are retailers that will sell you pre tested (binned) processors that will guarantee certain frequency on certain number of cores but those also come at a premium price... tbh, if you want to have a beastly OC'd processor, thats the route i would take next time you shop, that way you will know exactly what voltage to set for max frequency the processor will bear and its usually not that much of a price premium either (if you dont go for top 5% bin that is)...
