Reciever Posted October 20, 2022 Share Posted October 20, 2022 Quote Thanks to an unlocked multiplier, manual overclocking is easy on the 13900K. I've reached 5.6 GHz all-core stable, the E-Cores went up to 4.4 GHz. While these numbers definitely sound impressive, they are still a lot lower than the 5.8 GHz max boost of the 13900K, and this will cost you quite a bit of performance in low-threaded workloads and games, during which the CPU will regularly boost that high. With a manual all-core OC you're losing these boosts. A manual OC can still make sense for workloads like rendering or encoding, where all cores will be fully loaded all the time. When overclocked, the 13900K is able to beat the 7950X in these scenarios, too. Still, and considering the issues with power and heat, I feel like for the vast majority of users, manual overclocking makes little sense. Processor manufacturers have become really good at eking the last bits of performance out of their processors, at default settings.
