Performance and Overclocking
We tested the Godlike using a Core i9-9900K CPU on Auto settings and saw it Turbo to 4.72GHz on all eight cores with a reported 1.22V core voltage. This is the lowest figure voltage figure we have seen for this particular CPU and while the clock speed was slightly slower than other boards we have tested in recent times the performance was very good.
You will get slightly higher performance from the MSI MEG Z390 ACE and Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master boards on Auto settings however no-one in their right mind would send this sort of money and then run their CPU at stock clock speeds.
