Which mainboard do you have? Is there no CPU Package Power reported in HWiNFO?
Actually I was mistaken, as I did disable monitorings earlier, some I had managed to hide, I did go trough layout list and there I found power information, so all is good now, user error
I have a strong feeling you may have misunderstood the meaning of TDP. A TDP of 95W says that a CPU of this type needs (roughly) 95W to have all cores run at base(!) clock speed. So if your 8086k (4.0GHz base, 5.0GHz turbo) runs on 4.3GHz with 95W this is very good and no need to complain at all (https://en.wikichip.org/wiki/intel/core_i7/i7-8086k
). If you want it to run on more than 4.3GHz you have to give him a higher power limit (e.g. 130W) and raise the frequency in BIOS. Of course you have to watch the temperatures as well. You may be confused that I run my 7820x (140TDP) with 140-150W maximum but that is because its sweet spot is very low and x299 is a terrible platform so my 7820x is on a constant diet.
No, what I meant is that as CPU is designed for 95W, it's cooling is designed to 95W, so while it can run 5Ghz all cores, TIM is not transferring heat from die to heat spreader and CPU cooler enough fast. with delid it might be possible, but if CPU would of designed for constant 150W heat dissipation, surface area might be bit higher and CPU actually would be possible to be run at maximum frequency chip is capable of.
VRM is not really up to task for running CPU even at 95W long times, increasing power limit would just cause VRM safeties to kick in. Z370 and 8th gen is terrible platform, only highest cost motherboards seem to be ones that are up to task, but even then one needs to delid CPU.
Oh yes, noise is indeed super annoying aspect, that is why I'm running Macho Rev.B with two fans. Asus board is not allowing me to run them below 560rpm though, but there is no need to run them higher either as useless TIM in CPU is not transferring more heat than what two fans with that cooler at 560rpm can get rid of. Can't hear fans though, so it is all nice, except can't get VRM cooling in.
Don't want noisy AIO though, I had self made custom water cooling back at 1998 (water cooling was not exactly readily available back then), which was quiet, passive huge house heating radiator, more than 20 liters of water and huge aquarium pump that did not make any sound when sitting in bottom of water bucket. If those AIO things are annoying buzzing things, then I will not get such for sure!
I might keep running this system until Zen 4 though, runs fine and I don't find much need for higher single core performance either, but yeah Intel stuff has become quite horrible, I hope that Zen2 can run at max turbo clocks without ridiculous heat issues like intel has, 4th gen I7 is still competing just fine for single core performance of modern CPUs, one just needs to overclock it to maximum, progress has been quite slow for years, but luckily we are seeing better options in future
I need fast single core speed for BeamNG.Drive, but that also benefits from high core count, as long as single core speed is at best possible, it has kinda special needs. Also Raceroom and ETS2 need fast single core. I have something like 208 at SC Cinebench, 215-220 would be where I get all 12 threads utilized to maximum while having maximum GPU utilization.
With 208 SC Cinebench score there can be some rare situations where I get drops under 60fps, but when all cores are loaded, SC speed drops and sadly TIM does not transfer enough heat and VRM is not enough good to keep more than 4.3Ghz with all cores loaded. Might get 4.6Ghz with better VRM cooling though, but yeah, you know the thing, always something to tweak
Thanks to HWInfo it is easy to tweak things, also HWInfo did help me greatly to figure out that single core speed is what I need more, just set logging to 250ms when playing and check maximum thread usage afterwards vs GPU utilization and FPS, graphed in excel, that was in old version that did save log at 250ms intervals, 1 second does not catch those load spikes so well.
