    No, my desktop 8700K is clocked 24/7 at 5.4GHz and easily benchable at 5.5GHz. This one did 5.2GHz with no sweat in the desktop. We will find out how high we can go in the P870DM-G when the BIOS mod is finished. Still a work in progress at the moment.
    That will also be something to consider. Perhaps. Depends on how much can be disclosed from those who played a part in it. I don't want me or those other fine individuals to end up on an Intel or Clevo hit list or something tragic like that.

    You can't post this public because it's against the intel TOS.

    If I were you I would take this conversation private and delete the posts so the shekel monsters can't get to you.



    Here's a nͫiͤcͫeͤ to accompany this friendly suggestion

    I'm glad the video clarified it was the FBI. Had they not announced themselves before all the shooting started, one might have assumed it was the Micro$oft, Intel and NVIDIA insane clown possee.

    Glad to have a Clevo P870DM-G right now

    Oh and thanks to @woodzstack for the GTX 1060

    right now I have an i3-6100 plan on modding the bios to run a i5-8600 but nice to see you are running a full fledged i7-8700k how does it clock?

    This is the first BIOS revision and there are some additional things to address before I begin testing performance. Should be able to uncork it by next weekend, maybe sooner.

    Ah, that makes sense. Yeah, going from 2400 to 3000, especially with SODIMM, is pretty unusual.
