    High load is not essential / not the most important test, I think. But many everyday situations. The transition from high load to low load is often a problem. And higher temperatures. Just do everything with it for several days (if you have a new config), browse, mail, play different games etc. :)

    Then your setting is not stable.

    my 9900K can run games with 5.2ghz... You can have luck and bad luck with K and KS... but the chance of getting an good 9900KS is a bit better. The Problem is still that KS is Power limited.

    I agree. 200 MHz more clock on all eight cores and -125mv UV simultaneously is also violent.

    Initially I was running it @ -0.135 V then I had a couple of random crashes eventhough it passes CPU benches. I then pumped it by 10 mv and all BSOD is gone. I havent had one since.

    I noticed one thing though, alienware doesnt allow you to run CPU at static voltage, and sometimes the default config voltage can go to 1.4V.
    I bet we need a custom bios for CPU tweaking - under volting to say the least.

    I guess I have to be satisfied with what I got.

    BTW, I used intel XTU to for under volting since ThrottleStop voltage meter doesnt go below 125mv.

    Thanks all.

    @devilhunter
    Test -100mv, is enough (in my opinion).
    And with ThrottleStop you can set more than 125mv (you must change the "Range").
    And yes, the A51m has not the best mainboard / bios to configured Overclocking optimal.
    Here the desktop ATX-motherboards with appropriate chipsetsare unbeatable.

    sure, i already did: https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/34584797?

    UV value says nothing until we know the stock voltage at this clockspeed.

    In my case i have been running a 9900K @ 5GHz with -100mV offset for months without problems
