    Thanks Mike, I'll see what I can max it at with this motherboard tomorrow.
    But my preferred day to day will still be 47.GHz as then I can keep the fans down.

    It looks like I may have gotten lucky ordering and getting my CPU: Intel Cutting Retail Processor Supply for Holiday 2018 | TechPowerUp

    This could mean DIY favorites such as the Core i5-8400, the i5-8600K, i5-9600K, or even Core i7 models such as the i7-8700K, i7-9700K, and the flagship i9-9900K could be severely in short supply, or heavily marked up wherever available

    It's good stuff.
    It never cures, and is nice and gooey.
    One just needs to put it in a cup of warm water before applying(to thin it a little) so it doesn't have too thick a layer(if pre-spreading like I do).
