It seems to me that 5ghz on 2 cores is quite useless for me. The only thing I do which requires a fast CPU is gaming and even if a game uses 1 or 2 threads, other background processes will be constantly doing stuff meaning you'll basically always be running 4.7ghz. So I decided to ditch 5ghz at this point and see what speed I can reach on all cores to improve game fps. Currently I've got max boost multiplier to 49. Ditching 5ghz means I can use a lower vcore offset. The CPU never goes above 1.29v and droops down to 1.26 under full load. LLC level 3. Of course I will see if I can hit 5 or 5.1 but I have a feeling that 4.9 is the sweet spot on this CPU. Anybody else do a similar thing? What are your results?
