    Have a couple 8086Ks right now and am swapping 1 or both to 9900Ks.

    The 8086Ks are dead easy 5.0Core/5.0AVX overclockers without delids.

    What do you all think we’ll see the soldered 9900Ks do?

    Do you think 5.0Core/5.0AVX is a slam dunk? Or do you think matching AVX @5.0 could be a challenge with those extra cores?

    I am guessing this was your way of announcing that you are getting 9900k. But yeah, I would imagine 5.0 ghz even though no one knows

    Upgrading from an overclocked 8086K to a 9900K seems like a complete waste of money to me. What kind workload are you running OP to justify that?

    Really no point in this thread... I'm enthusiastic also.

    Packaging says 2 core 5ghz max max boost.

    Doing anything from gaming to rendering to encoding to massive multitasking. More cores the better and need to stay all cores 5.0.

    The point of the thread is... what do you think? Did you read the title? How will the 9900K overclock?

    All cores 5.0/5.0 with low volts? Or all cores 5.0/4.8 lots of volts? Guess we’ll find out soon...

    Splave told Tom's Hardware the Core i9-9900K can hit 5.3 GHz on all cores with watercooling and a 1.4V Vcore.

    if you don't need the old 8086Ks you can send them to me, thanks.

    What do you mean by 5.0Avx? That it can pass an avx stress at that clock?

    As you know you can overclock core from AVX separately. A lot of guys reach high core overclocks by underclocking AVX. You’ll see 5.0core and 4.6avx or even 5.2core and 4.8avx. AVX is extremely intense and requires a lot of volts and thus generates a lot of heat when overclocked. It’s kind of cheating to underclock AVX imo (unless nothing you use uses AVX), which is why I try to match them. Personal preference.

    That doesn't even make sense, the "kind of cheating".

    It's not a contest for most people. They buy something and then clock it for the best performance they can get.

    This whole thing feels like a stealth brag thread.

    LOL
    Whatever man. Your post makes no sense. I’m competing against myself, as always. Why would I brag about something any Joe can go buy for themselves?
    Clueless much?

    I agree.

    If someone's setup is thermal limited to 4.6GHz running AVX and 5.0GHz running "normal" instructions, why would they not run it that way? They should run all instructions at 4.6GHz or they are cheating???? Cheating at what?

    Believe the MSI Z390 Godlike and MEG ACE have factory XMP dials that when set to 11 OC the i9 9900k to 5.4 AC base and 5.7 SC boost clock. Seeing as it's OOTB 5.0 boost, seems possible, especially with STIM.

    Thanks.
