    Question i5-9400F refuses to boost to 4.1GHz on a single core.

    As expected, on all 6 cores, the speed never goes above 3.89GHz, which is normal. However, I expected it would reach the advertised 4.1GHz on a single core, but if I run a benchmark of some sort, it will only go to 4.08GHz max, never above that. Is this expected behavior?

    Question Best CPU for RTX 3070?

It seems like it is bottlenecking, and I would love to change my CPU in order to avoid that bottleneck, but without spending...

    7700k 5.2ghz?

    I've just started overclocking and a few weeks ago got my 7700k to 5.0ghz on all cores. Today I've been fiddling around and got my pc to 5.2ghz on 1 core. I'm not sure if having 5.2ghz all core will increase the temps dramatically. Thanks
