    Anyone tune and benchmark the i9 8950hk? Interested to see results for this one.

    I am still new to all this so hopefully I will be posting my own i9 results soon.

    LOL! sure its on order! I am just glad I finally got a machine that is stable after a few updates.

    I have noticed that Intel Xtu is junk and seems to cause issues so I no longer use it.

    Yeah, I highly recommend throttlestop. I only use XTU on the desktop because it gives me individual core control.

    Agree! I have been trying to digest all the settings on TS.

    Have some Kryonaut paste and pads on standby.

    So a quick questions regarding TS.

    Since I have an i9 8950HK and the Dell Bios 1.2.2 has Speed Shift enabled....
    1.Do I need to also enable Speed Shift EPP in TS both on the main screen and in TPL?
    2.Do I uncheck Speed Step and C1?

    Sorry for all questions as I am still learning this stuff and pouring through the threads/posts on multiple forums has been a bit daunting.

    1. You can not disable SpeedShift without powering down and switching it off in BIOS. So if you have SpeedShift enabled in BIOS, selecting or unselecting the SpeedShift box in ThrottleStop should not matter

    2a. If you are running SpeedShift, selecting or unselecting the Speed Step box in ThrottleStop should not matter as SpeedShift takes control at the CPU level

    2b. ThrottleStop is the easiest way to control EPP with the new Windoze release I have seen. It seems M$ removed EPP manual adjustment from Windoze Power Options. I still run older W10 so can't help.

    3c. Unrelated but If you are having problems with C1 states for some reason you can choose to disable them. There is more info in the ThrottleStop Guide but that is an esoteric feature that is not for the general population.

    EDIT - you can confirm is SpeedShift is enabled as the letters SST will be green (either in ThrottleStop or HWiNFO64). As a bonus, ThrottleStop also confirms EPP value in the Main Screen & FIVR screen.

    Thank you for the response...I

    I noticed in HWiNFO 64 IT WAS GREEN. TS shows a value of 128 for EPP on main screen and a value of 1 and 48 on the TPL screen.

    Should either of these be adjusted?

    Questions on the 1.5mm thermal pads...Where exactly are you guys putting them? I have a 2mm that I would be putting on both 16gb ram sticks. Should be repasting the i9 8950hk in the next day or so. Currently have results on stock cpu and at -140mv both tests on Aida64 stress tests.
