    Oddly enough my temps keep creeping up. Same settings in games cpu core hitting max 81. GPU max 74%

    Makes no sense. I have changed no settings and have have not installed anything new. But temps have gone up 6% over the last week or so.

    I bought a Silicon Lottery Delidded Intel i9-9900KS (rated to 5.2GHz) from HIDevolution for them to install into a custom Area 51m laptop for me if an R2 isn't announced soon. Would an Area 51m even be able to use the full power of this chip? Was this a dumb move?

    I panicked when I heard they were being discontinued and wanted to snag one before they were gone.

    Your thermal paste might be degrading. Check to see if there is no air that can harden it, or not enough mounting pressure. Kryonaught keeps viscous under high mounting pressure, while other less viscous paste will not degrade/pump out as fast as kryonaught.

    So the GPU Power limit and Thermal Limit have been given the Covid-19 treatment and put in isolation?
    There but no access with 1.9 Bios um why?
    Anyone?

    As much as I love my 51m’s honestly they don’t use the full power of the 9700k/9900k muchless 9900ks. In most cases people are getting higher clock speeds with 9700k than 9900k users simply because of heat and power delivery.

    From someone who has owned previous Silicon lottery CPUs, I would never use an Intel CPU that isn't a Silicon Lottery one. They run so much cooler and require less voltage making it a night and day difference.

    See my old 6700K here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...running-division.789249/page-21#post-10222477

    The non-Silicon Lottery one I had before it used to overheat even at stock clock speeds of 4.2 GHz!

    9900KS will run colder than most of the 9900K chips up to the power cap. From what I have seen... Dell won't get the best binned chips from Intel. And Dell won't offer these processors for Area-51m.
    Intel Core i9 9900KS seems to be going EOL
    Not all get the bottom of the bin. Rather rare.

    You can sell the chips if you lost in the lottery and buy a binned chips. You won't loose much money if you go this way. Swap to a new Cpu is 10 min job.

    Then explain why my 9700k that came with the laptop can do 5.4GHz all core, or 5.2GHz without pushing voltage

    I have not the time to do this and I have the worst luck with CPUs so I'd rather pay and get a guaranteed good bin.
