    Has anyone here tried to OC their i9-10900k in clevo laptop with Prema Custom BIOS by BIOS or Intel Extreme Tuning Utility? I would like to see some results from specifications that you have used in XTU or BIOS. I will get my new X170KM-G from hidevolution in a week and I wanted to prepare myself for overclocking this beast machine as good as I can :) Maybe someone else is using the same machine right now (liquid metal on CPU).

    What cooling mods have you done? Chip quality will play a part.

    I have chosen:
    Prema Custom BIOS
    Prema Custom BIOS - Latest Updated Version
    Processor
    HIDevolution Delidded Intel® 10th Generation Comet Lake i9-10900K 10 Core - 20 Thread Processor, 3.7 GHz (Max Turbo Frequency 5.3 GHz), 20 MB Smart Cache, 125W
    Thermal Interface Materials
    Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut between Intel CPU Die and IHS, Gelid GC Extreme between IHS + Heat Sink + GPU, and Fujipoly Extreme Thermal Pads on heat sensitive surfaces - installed by HIDevolution

    So I guess it is maximum what you can get from cooling mods in this laptop.

    Well an enthusiast can always go a step further but it's a good chunk. Just treat it like you would tuning a desktop and exploring your chip.

    Yes, I know, in the current laptop, for example, I made additional holes on the bottom of the case to ensure better airflow. I will see what the temperatures will be, but it seems to me that the X170KM-G housing has a well-constructed housing for the best air flow.

    You are more going to be focused on software settings like voltages and power targets really first.

    I have made some tests and this laptop is a monster :D unfortunately I couldn't OC CPU over 4.8Ghz cauz it overheats to much.
    GPU is overclocked with +140Mhz on core clock, +1500Mhz on memory clock. Temps for GPU are very low, around 50-60 in games.
    Below you can see my settings in XTU. Do you think I could Optimize it here to reach stable 4.9?

    4.8GHz on 10 cores is a lot of juice...

    How hot is 'overheat'? Thermal throttle?
