Clock Speeds

The Intel Core i9-13900K is a complete monster out of the box, boosting to pretty much as high as we can go. With the MSI Carbon we managed to squeeze an extra 100 MHz out at the top end, and this was available across all P Cores. It’s a massively impressive processor that is far more likely to be thermally limited than any power considerations, particularly so on a board with the 105A power stages we have here.
