    OK, so I've been trying to overclock my 9700K with major issues.

    Present settings:

    Set all cores to 5Ghz
    Set Power Limit 1 & 2 to 250000
    Set voltage offset to -100
    Uncore: Set voltage offset to -25

    I keep keep getting blue screen errors of CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT?
    and WHEA Uncorrectable Error.

    I have my RAM set at:

    Memory Clock Multiplier 1.000x
    Memory Multiplier 15.000x

    To give 30,000Mhz.

    RAM seems stable.

    Help oh wise and knowledgeable people.

    UV dropped to -80.

    What to increase the Power Limits to?

    Also, temps spike to 95°C on boot before fans kick in.

    Temps idling are in the 60°'s.

    Leave the power where it is.

    Do you have CCC or ObsidianTools installed? If so, uninstall both and unplug the AC adapter while the system is off to reset the EC. See what the FANs do afterwards.

    Removed the Obsidian suite I had installed. Temps still spike at boot to just after OS has loaded.

    Using CPU-Z bench - https://valid.x86.fr/jdd3sn I hit 96 °C.

    So I'm guessing a repaste is in order.

    Any other suggestions for lower temps?

    Thanks for the advice Prema.

    Summer time overclocking is never fun with high ambient temps.

    What paste are you using? Do you have a small standoff so the laptop can breathe?

    Cooler Master Mastergel Maker Nano according to the retailer.

    Yes, back of the notebook is raised by roughly 2.5cm.

    It's not delidded I take it?

    You can always check the application and see whether the contact between ihs and cooler is decent. And from there you can try lowering the multiplier a notch or two and see how much you can drop the voltage if the temps are still not within reason.

    I'm away from my laptop now. I'll check the application and contact when I get back.

    I'm looking to push this machine to see its capabilities.

    Tske a picture of the CPU and heatsink after separating them to show the pattern of the paste and share it here.
