Silly question, is 4.9 Ghz your all-core turbo? My six core multiplier is 46x and I'm wondering if I can push it further.
Yeaqh, 4.9 GHz for all six cores. Uncore ratio is still at 43x, though I've been increasing it in steps as of today. Also, I'm now running it at 1.31V due to an unexpected crash during a 3DMark stress test - though I might dial it back to 1.30V because then I found that the video card's no longer holding my old OC stably.
It should be easy to do better than an H60, though. If you already bought a 9600K you shouldn't need too much of an excuse to spring for a good 240mm/280mm cooler
I'm thinking of foregoing anything involving liquids and hoses, to be honest, but if a 240/280mm cooler works even better... I'm all ears.
Been planning to get a new cooler anyway - this H60 is tiding me over. Surprisingly it managed 4.9 GHz.
