After building my new rig ( https://pcpartpicker.com/b/sMYTwP ), I tried out the various preset OC features just to see how they worked. I just noticed looking at HWMonitor, that at some point I had gotten (max) 4958MHz on all cores. I'm not sure which canned settings I did it with, though I think it was the 'gaming OC' option in UEFI. Max voltage on any core was 1.487V, again came from the canned option. For just regular usage I'm running at stock (no canned OC options at all) and getting around 4050MHz at 1.337V. While I'm not complaining, this feels a little off (on the high side) for what the 2700x is supposed to perform. Am I off base?
