hello everyone, i am quite new to overclocking and do some reading and watching tutorial about it. i hope you can guide me from here smile.gif i hope this post discussion will help future new overclocker too

So i just bought a new custom rig with this following spec:

INTEL i7 9700k
GIGABYTE z390 AORUS ELITE
CORSAIR DDR4 XMP VENGEANCE
EVGA SUPERNOVA 750G+ 80 PLUS GOLD 750W
CORSAIR HYDRO H150I PRO

So my current oc is at 1.33 core volt @ 5.1 Ghz with LLC set on high and avx offset 2.

From my understanding is that oc core volt should be safe as long it is withing 1.35v - 1.4v
so i there i set my volt to 1.33v

however during stress test with aida64, the reading for cpu core show reading below:

Cpu Volt
min : 1.272
max : 1.32
avg : 1.287

DIMM
min : 1.356
max :1.380
avg : 1.371

temperature among all core
min: 37
max: 83
avg : 70-72

so from here it looks like everything is seems fine

But i double check with this program called HWMonitor.
the reading show below:

core voltage
VID
current : 1.39 - 1.42
min : 1.383
max : 1.451

temperature:
79 - 84

so from this reading, i am abit worried since it shows the volt over than 1.45v but most of the time i look at the reading is mostly 1.4 and from range of 1.39v to 1.42v

so which reading do i rely on more ?

next question is do i maintain the oc setting this way without worry the cpu will degraded/damaged? or do i set to 5.0 ghz with lower voltage to be more stable and long lasting use ?

i already did the test of voltage at 1.32v and below and it seems the pc just keep crash but at 1.33v the pc seems fine up to now.

many thanks for advise

Edit 1: just realise 1.32v was not stable during my gaming session but didnt crash during aida64. therefore i had set the voltage to 1.36v and up to date no crash after multiple session of gaming.

all gaygay mobos are weird the vid readings doesnt stack with vcore reading so just ignore it
once had like 3 different giga z370s side by side rig different models.. with 8700k..
all had different readings to the voltage set..

Reinstalled HWMonitor and getting the reading much better.

CPU VCORE :
min 1.32
max 1.356

however i realise the reading from intel core i7 9700k under voltage , the VID reading is
min: 1.373
max 1.451

it keep lies between 1.41 - 1.42

is the vid reading showing an alarming voltage towards the cpu ?

gigaboards ignore that vid reading.

After the overclocking of the processor, I noticed that my Skype Mic Not Working Windows 10 and I could not use the application at all. Please help me to fix the problem. I have checked the drivers, it was properly installed still why the problem is arising I don't know.

You can always do stress test with Prime95
https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/prime95-download.html

If one of the core stopped from the stress test. Meaning that your current clock speed is not stable. Either you continue to increase voltage or reduce clock speed.

better just lower down your voltage and 5GHz. This should be more stable.

My i5-9600k too can't hit more than 4.8GHz for the Prime95 stress test. So far only can reach 4.8GHz maximum for Vcore 1.31v (this is the lowest vcore I can get so far). AIDA64 stress test at maximum 68'c at CPU power consumption of 95w, prime95 can reach 90'c at CPU power consumption of 155w. Idling at fixed 4.8GHz has 36'c~38'c. However, I'm not as rich as you using the 360mm liquid cooler. I'm just using Cryorig R1 Universal. My CPU was delided and replaced to Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut. You may also try delid your CPU and replace to der8aur oc frame to see whether can get lower temp at higher clock speed. Just get a liquid metal and oc frame. Also buy a delid tool to remove your CPU IHS. Meaning that you completely don't want the CPU cover, just take away the CPU cover then contact the CPU die directly to the heatsink/cooler. But first have to remind, your i7-9700K is using soft type soldered TIM. After you removed the IHS, you may need to remove the soldered TIM layers with razor blade then clean with alcohol, get a cotton to polish out the die with autosol. Make sure the CPU die is cleaned and shine before to apply liquid metal on it.

Just lower down your clock to get your mic working. Always test with Prime95 to ensure your current clock speed is running stable.
