    5 year old platform vs. 2017. Not a good comparison, imo?

    Tuning always is! I always leave plenty of time to try to nail it down before I put it into commission, normally. Only reason I'm using it now is it is good enough until I can reseat the block. But, once you go through all the testing a couple times, it starts to become second nature. I mean, it took me a fraction of the time to set the ram up in this build compared to the 6700K build, which was somewhat quicker, somewhat slower (because of more control over timings), than flashing my SPD for my laptop ram. Plus, they slightly change the game on OCing settings each gen, so learning the nuances of each platform does have its own curve. If I could spend a week or two with your machine.... I'd return it tuned for you! (plus the benchmarks for me)...

    Hahaha. If you are in Edmonton sometimes, we can go out for a cold one and tune some PCs together. This is probably the most complex processor I have got my hands on with respect to overclocking. So many different aux voltage, somewhat new ram kit, and etc.
