Think I could squeeze much more out of this 8700k?     This clock is literally just from software one click over clocking, I've had it stable on a variety of applications  for the past week.   It bounces between 29-65 degrees ( 65 degree highs while gaming ) It'll go to 70 during stress tests.

I've got a better cooler coming in the mail... just wondering what I could try next.

Yea I know i'm  upgrading my ram next :P it's not the fastest.

    I would try to get that Voltage below 1.4 V  before pushing harder  1.456 is not for daily use IMO

    That's when it hits 100%,  It's idling closer to 1.1-1.3v because of the power settings etc.  

    I've pulled it down to a 1.4 V's @ 100% and dropped the timing frq down to 5.0.
