I thought I had 4.7 stable at 1.26v but I was wrong. In fact, my 8700k can't do 4.5ghz at 1.26v....so wtf? Is this normal? I have it at 4.4ghz again 1.26v. Pretty annoying.

8700k 4.4ghz All core, 1.26v (1.280 full load) LLC 6. Backed off from 4.7 all core 1.26v LLC6 because it almost crashed my PC in GTAV going around a corner. I had tested with OCCT large, medium data and aida for 2 hours each with no issues. Can't run any stress test with full options due to heat. Realbench crashes even with the stock settings 4.4ghz 1.25v auto everything else, so I don't know.

Maximus X Formula (latest BIOS 2102)
EVGA GQ 1000watt 80plus gold
3000mhz tridentz 16-18-18-38 1.35v
VCCIO 1.1
VCCSA 1.1
SVID Disabled
BCLK Adaptive Voltage Disabled
Ring Down Bin Auto (x41)
VRM Spectrum Disabled
BCLK Spectrum Disabled (Just disabled it. I think I notice a slight increase in performance, could be placebo)
C-States Auto
Speedstep Disabled
Long duration power limit 4095
Short duration power limit 4095
Something I can't remember 255.75d
Samsung 970 Evo 500gb
Toshiba 7200 RPM + 16gb intel optane (couldn't afford another NVMe M.2 1Tb =/)

Right now I'm looking for PCIE spread spectrum, MCP PCIE spread spectrum, SATA spread spectrum, and LDT spread spectrum. I found this guide from 2008 so I'm not sure if these things even apply anymore, but the details of what they all do are informative. I might be missing some setting that's relevant up there. All the power increase options are still on auto and the VRMS temp throttling option is enabled. They never go above 63c or so in hwinfo. I'm either missing some crucial setting or I have a really bad chip. Can't even do 4.5 at 1.26v and a LLC that puts it at 1.28v under full load. Crashes in rebel galaxy outlaw of all games.
