cinebench r23 10386pts.
Win 10 x64 Pro | I5-10600k | MSI Z590 A Pro | CL16 BL2K8G32C16U4B

CPU 5.1Ghz at 1.375v, ring ratio 4.6Ghz, avx offset 0. All speedsteps disabled.

Dram timings 16-18-18-36 2n=2t at ddr4-3200 at 1.35v.

I have good results.

I am going try for 5.2

boost is 4.8 though, thats only +300. keep pushin. what are you cooling with?
edit: oh, i guess thats pretty good after all. id still keep squeezin till it says no.

What is boost? I know there is ratio ring, avx offset. I dont know what boost is, sorry. My cpu stays at 5.1Ghz.

See photo for what I am using for cooling. EK coolstream pe 240 rads, this beast.

the chips stock turbo/boost speeds

nice setup. youve got plenty of cooling, ~20c to spare, id keep pushing/tweaking. pump and fans on max during your runs?

CPU's do not have fixed clocks these days. They have a base clock and then boost clocks which are short term duration. Intel Core i9 10900K's are 3.7GHz to begin with and boost to 5.1GHz to 5.3GHz under certain conditions. They don't have any real headroom for overclocking and the best you can really do is about 5.1GHz all core or sometimes 5.2GHz. Essentially all you are doing on a CPU like that is locking them at their Turbo Boost 2.0 boost frequency. However, heat and power consumption is rather high as a result.

The high end chips are binned at the edge of what the silicon can do and generally aren't worth overclocking. In some cases it can retard performance. However, the chips beneath the top one in the product stack usually have some room and provide the better value on that.

In my uefi, i have cpu set at fixed, it gives an option for dynamic or fixed.

I'm simply referring to the default behavior of these CPU's. You asked about boost clocks, I'm answering the question.
