Both the 9th Gen Intel CPUs we have on test today can overclock well. The i5-9600K can have the 4.9 GHz boost clock spread across all six cores without needing much of bump in vCore, whilst the Core i7-9700K is an overclocking monster, giving us 5.2 GHz across all eight cores. That's a barely believable overclock and should lead to some significant increases in our benchmarks.
