The i9-9900K Achieved an Astounding 5.50 GHz on All Cores on A Z170 Motherboard

As we already know Intel’s 8th and 9th generation processors can work on the older motherboards through a BIOS alteration.

Finnish overclocking enthusiast “Luumi” posted a video demonstrating the insane overclock of 5.50Ghz on all cores on the i9-9900K. This was done on the ASrock Z170M OC formula Micro-ATX motherboard. And yes, the overclocked processor was stable in CineBench and Prime95.

According to Intel, it released the 300-series chipset platform to ensure the 6-core “Coffee Lake” processors have motherboards which boast a powerful VRM setup to compensate for the increased core count. However, the controversy dictates that Intel only created the superficial limitation between 300-series and older LGA 1151 platforms just so motherboard vendors have a product to sell after every two generations.

AMD does not follow the same policy as its AM4 platform is supported for three generations up to 2020.
