    Have you tried undervolting your 9900K? If so, how low on average were you able to go and still maintain full turbo speeds, etc.?

    It depends on what is set in the bios, but he average is -125/-125. It can go as high as -80 or as low as -150 or so. Again, this is based on settings in the bios.

    The problem is they are feeding the cpu way to much voltage for the over clock they are trying to hold.
    So one needs to find out what the stable voltage is first. Once this is established, then you can find out what "true stock" is.

    All I can say... This 5.2GHz oc profil with 136W power cap will work equal good as Dell's adverticed 5.0GHz oc profile for unlocked i9-8950Hk power capped at 110w. But yeah, I will have to purchase some popcorn CIGAR - lUvxz.gif

    The problem is I do not know unless I test it myself. I can not run around posting other peoples results and feel comfortable about it. That's why I generally wait till I get a machine in my hands and test it or some forum members that iI trust to bring the truth. Then I know what it's supposed to do as opposed to what they want me to think it should do. Waiting to see if I can find an Area 51M to test. Then I can give you a 100 percent verdict. Right now everything is pretty much speculations.
