Live: Overclocking i7-8086K Past 5GHz

  • Published on Jul 12, 2018
  • This is our tenth live stream! We are overclocking the Intel i7-8086K CPU past 5GHz. Tune-in to see how far we can go!

    The Intel i7-8086K is on Amazon here:
    We are overclocking the Intel i7-8086K live today. This is basically a binned 8700K CPU, but we want to see just how well ours performs. We're hoping for 5.3GHz+.

    5.1GHz with Vcore under 1.35 is a good result for everyday use , mine is working 51x101 5150MHz VCore 1.39V in Bios
    in windows CPU-Z under stress 1.375 V -- 1.380 V maximum stable 5.2GHz with VCore 1.43V cooled by WC EK Block

    Bought the 8086K because my first PC ever was the actual 8086 XT. Running at 4.8GHz on all cores, no need to push it for me.

    This is what RU-clip auto plays when I leave it playing overnight. Boy is that a smart algorithm. If true AI already exists, there needs to be rights for them instead of people having easy access to manipulate and lobotomize them for their own ends. You got my respect Mr. theoretical Google AI, or at least as long as you don't go skynet on us.

    I got 23346 on my 2700x. No overclock. Turned on PBO and XFR2. Undervolted 0.05V. Memory @ only 3200mhz because 4 dimms 14,14,8,14,28,42 timings

    my 8086k will run at 5.1 all day, no issues. great processor, it is only special because it was named special anniversary because it's a 8700 that's not different, it is just pre-tested, pre-binned, pre-sorted. They just took the best of the best from the "silicon lottery."

    I overclocked my i7-7700 using moon juice however the stream isn't going faster, and the screen is learning human biology by mimicking standing up too fast or spinning in a chair real fast.

    This stream motivated me to further oc my non delid 8700k to 5,2Ghz 1,375v. Ran some benchmarks and went back to 5Ghz cuz the high temps. This is where it belongs

    I know it's old, but since you knew your max frequencies for your core and memory, you could've drop the ratios for both and bumped the bclk to like 105 or as needed to match your highest stable frequencies since bclk seemed to give a nice jump in your score earlier on. I believe you could got your 24k.

    This is cool! Just for lulz, I decided to duplicate this FS Physics run on my old 4930K (6 cores, 12 threads) using just my 24/7 OC since 2013(!!!) on a RIVE and 4 x 4GB of 2133 MHz DDR3 memory. To be clear, this is the locked in OC I've been using now for over 5 years which is just 4.5 GHz. I've benched this rig at up to 4.8 GHz back in the day but the processor is old now so I don't like to push it. Full custom loop for 4930K and both GTX Titans, temps hover in the 50C's for this short test.
    I am really amazed that running this bench now, with nothing having been optimized and just using the same old 4.5 GHz OC I customized for low voltage, daily usage that this Ivy Bridge E processor from 2013 scored 16062 for the FS Physics Score! That's just a couple thousand points less than Steve's baseline on the 8086K. Pretty comparable CPU's; both are 6C / 12T for example. I dunno, I guess it kinda confirms my feeling that this 5 year old IBE processor is still plenty fast enough even in 2019!! Clearly the stock 8086K is a good bit faster than my 4.5 GHz 4930K, and at 5.1+ GHz it will destroy the 4930K. I might go for 4.8 GHz just to see if I can top Steve's baseline score for kicks, but yeah, the 4930K even today is still a BEAST!!! :)

    I need help.My cpu is overheating even after applying thermal paste in a very little dot method and p sized dot method nothing has worked out and my cpu isn't overclocked it's idle temp is 50-55 degree Celsius .My room temp is 22 degree Celsius. If I overclock it to 4.4 GHz the temp goes to 101 degree Celsius but if I don't it holds on 70 degree Celsius. My cpu is Intel i7 5960x I bought it 3 years earlier but the problem occurred some day before October. What should I do. Should I delid my cpu but I have no tools for that and the rezor blade method won't work cuz the IHS is soldered . Please if you read my comment give me a solution I want my cinebench score back to 1715 cb like before. I forgot to mention that I have changed my CPU cooler too. Its Antec Mercury 360.

    can someone please run a 2700x single thread overclock to shut him the hell up.. out of the box with a good watercooler ryzen 2700x can boost , not only 5 but over 5 ghz easily in game. surprise morons dont see he is an intel fanboy.

    my 8700k from late 2017 goes past 5 ghz using the ASUS Software/AI Bios Tuning completely no brain , i wonder how far i could really push it if id do serious job on it, and since its watercooled it doesnt even sweat doing so.
