Hey,

so I've sold my previous i7 9700K build and got a new one.
i7 9700K
RTX 2080 ASUS ROG Strix OC
ASUS ROG STRIX Z390 Gaming F
16gb G.skill 3200mhz
Noctua NH-D15
EVO 970 m.2
EVO 860
Toshiba 2TB HDD
Corsair RMX 750
Nanoxia Deep silence 5 rev b. Full tower with 4 140mm fans.

The cpu temperature is much better than with my previous 9700k and bequiet dark rock pro 4, where it went over 80c degrees on stock in games. Nov I have around 65-72c max (depends on the game). So I've been wondering what is the best voltage to set it manual for this cpu that it will be stable and generate less heat? So it would be cooler. I'm hoping to get in range of 50-60c under load in gaming. Because Intel's stock adaptive voltage is insanely high. Anybody here maybe has an idea? I'm thinking of maybe around 1.200v? and what other stuff do I also need to change and lower it's values? Like maybe VCCIO, VCCSA etc? Anybody here with undervolting experience?
 
Lots of folks undervolt, as many MBs set their BIOS with about .05V - .10V more core voltage than needed, but, with 65-70C temps, I'd probably not bother. (Are those temps with or without MCE? They'd be very good temps w/ MCE, I'd think)

No everything is stock with mce disabled. No the stock voltage is higher than .05-.10v. When under load it goes up to 1.360v which is too high. For stock speeds it should be enough around 1.200v, but I want to know what other settings do I also need to change along with VCORE?
