They are testing dozens of CPUs in one go,they can't build the best system for each CPU,they go for the extreme build that will not hinder the best CPUs they have and then just switch out CPUs.
2600X got a watercooler and OC.
9400f got the stock cooler and stock turbo setup, bouncing between 2.9Ghz and brief 3.9 all core turbo.
With XTU, you can lock them at 4.1 all core. But I don't recommend it on the stock cooler at all, it's really cheesy and not at all a good choice. But the $20 212s and knockoffs can absolutely run XTU at 4.1x6 locked with the setup. Or, in this test I guess if they were interested in doing so : just reusing the h115i.
