10900k "golden sample" / Binned Cost


Bidelloman

Recommended Posts

Looking for a 10900k for my x170sm-g, golden or binned for undervolting reasons, the more, the better.

 

How much would it cost me these days? More or less, to choose whether it wouldn't be better to simply go standard retail.

 

Shipping to Italy by the way.

 

I thank you for any information provided.

Depending on quality of chip, $400-800.

 

Problem is finding a golden chip then seeing if it runs cool and how much it pulls vs what are your expectations in your X170SM-G.

 

Want it to run stock but cool as possible and not overheat or throttle?

Looking to overclock?

Looking for silent operation except under load?

I think my best bet is simply to undervolt it, just like I did my 10600k (-94mV) and all core bumped up to a simple 4.8ghz max. With that and a gpu V max at 0.975 I'm already skirting the limits, I doubt I can do much better with a 10900k or 10700 for that matter. My goal is avoiding thermal throttle, I do profiles with throttlestop and the unlocked dsanke bios if needed. ( Yes I run delidded, copper IHS and liquid metal, yet conductonaut seems to require frequent changes especially on the gpu)

I never use LM on anything except when I delid under the IHS and reseal it. As you found out, it gets soaked and messy and can harden and also require changes externally in some cases.

 

Even a "bad" 10900k can just be clocked down and undervolted till you find the balance where it won't throttle. The other idea is to find a good chip that will run as intended since we face major constraints in laptop cooling versus desktop that can just soak up the extra heat a not so great chip will throw off.
