I have 16GB DDR3 1600mhz hyperx (2x 8GB) memory and I wonder if I will have to purchase another pair of memories in order to work well with the 9700k.

    Question i7 9700k Turbo Boost 4.9GHz on all 8 cores

    To all Intel geeks, is it possible to get 4.9Ghz on all 8 cores on a i7 9700k in Turbo Boost? HWMonitor was showing it for like 2 minutes in a row and it's not the first time (see screenshot). I have an ASRock Z390 Extreme4 with default settings, no OC mode on. Thanks!
