Oh, yeah, joys of choosing Intel, who due to Ryzens dominance in DIY happily ignores "overclocking" features motherboard partners turn on by default and through those shenanigans basically make Itels TDP rating useless. And they do that regardless if CPU can actually handle it. Welcome to beautifully reliable Intel ecosystem of ignoring TDP and keeping "unlimited" boost permanent so we can compete be ause at Intel specified behaviour of sticking to TDP we can't. :-D

Jokes aside, Intel really should deal with that, because it just makes them look bad and their TDP rating as joke. Where CPU can consume like twice the rating, even worse with locked chips, as some stir found out their 10700 consumed more than 10700k, because motherboard ignored time duration limit for initial "unlimited" boost and extended it permanently. Needless to say also not all CPUs have good enough silicon quality to be stable with that.

But that is one of must check in Intel system. Though for troubleshooting guides I do recommend Youtubers like Jayztwocents, his videos at least don't start with how he consulted his tech friends and sister sites, like most readers can't. No shame to ask for help, but also not good sign, if author of hide does it. Just saying.
