    Question i9 9900K overclocking - confused, what to do with AVX, LLC and OCCT stress test fail

    Question 3900x or 9900k?

    I'd mainly use my PC for content creation (Premiere Pro, Photoshop) and would like to know your opinion.

  6. Question CPU benchmark results

    In mid-January I overclocked my 9900K to 5.0GHz and undervolted until it was ideal. I tested it with UserBenchmark several times and got very consistent results every time: A couple days ago I decided to clean-install Windows (I didn't have to) and half-expected to get improved results. So I...

    Hi there everybody! I’ll try to keep this short and sweet, so I’ll ask my question and then explain everything after that.
