I’m looking for 8700k overclocking suggestions for the rig in my sig. Currently, I have it overclocked to 5 GHz on all cores with a fixed voltage of 1.375 V and LLC at level 2. The system has been rock solid with very cool temps, never going above 60 or so in heavy gaming and only 1 or 2 cores even exceed 70 on Prime. However, I recently started playing one game (Battlefront II) that causes the system to hard lock. If I reduce the OC, it seems to play fine. Any suggestions on what to tweak? I’ve upped the voltage and it didn’t seem to stabilize it in this game. So far, only Battlefront crashes consistently in the 7 months I’ve had the system.
