We overclocked the Intel i5-10600K Cache Ratio, the core, and the RAM in under an hour in order to match i9-10900K results from our review. This benchmark looks at whether RAM matters for Intel.

In this video, we’re benchmarking the Intel Core i5-10600K with cache & memory tuning to see how much RAM matters on Intel, but also to see if we can equate a 10900K (on our standard bench platform — see its specs in test methods content below) with under an hour of testing and validation. The Intel i5-10600K Ring clock (uncore or cache) is often overlooked in overclocking, so this testing helps illustrate the impact of a Cache ratio increase alongside core multiplier increases, all split-out from higher memory clocks. AMD Ryzen 5 3600, 3700X, and 3900X CPUs are included in the charts, but they’re not the topic for today. We’re focused just on the Intel vs. Intel impact from these overclock changes, similar to our Ryzen 3 3100 Infinity Fabric overclock. If you want comparative numbers of the R5 3600 or R7 3700X vs. i5-10600K, watch our review (linked above).
