2022-10-19 at 20:21 by Oliver Jäger – A member of the Overclock.net forum reported that in Cinebench R23 he upgraded his Core i9-13900KF, which has not yet been officially released, to 6, 2GHz overclock. He scored 2,352 points while keeping the CPU consistently below 76°C with AiO water cooling.
On October 20th, Intel’s new 13th generation processors will be launched. Then customers can buy the first three CPUs i9-13900K, i7-13700K and i5-13600K together with their KF variants in stores. However, a user on the OCN (Overclock.net) forums named “Coodie” has already come into possession of a Core i9-13900KF, likely due to a mistake by a retailer who prematurely sold the CPU to another OCN member from whom in turn, Coodie is said to have acquired the processor.
Core i9-13900KF overclocked to 6.2 GHz in Cinebench R23 single-core test
The Core i9-13900KF is Intel’s new flagship from the 13th Raptor Lake generation with a total of 24 cores, of which 8 are P and 16 are E cores. The F suffix indicates that there is no integrated graphics unit. However, this was irrelevant for Coodie, because he was already using the brand new Geforce RTX 4090 from Nvidia as the graphics card for his test setup. According to official Intel information, a top clock speed of 5.8 GHz is possible with the Raptor flagship. The overclocker exceeded this value by 400 MHz and thus achieved an OC clock of 6.2 GHz paired with 2,352 points in the Cinebench R23 single-core test.

An AiO water cooling system from Corsair (iCUE H150I RGB Elite), which was able to keep operation constantly below 76 °C, a CPU contact frame from Thermal Grizzly and 32 GiByte DDR5-6000 memory from G.Skill were also used. With 2,352 points in the single-core test, the Core i9-13900KF is in 13th place in the corresponding Hwbot ranking.
Suitable for this: Overclocking: Core i9-13900KF with almost 6.0 GHz and Ryzen 7 5800X3D with 5.5 GHz spotted
Coodie used an Asus ROG Maximus Z690 Apex as the mainboard. In the multi-core test in Cinebench R23, the overclocker also scored 41,940 points at almost 6.2 GHz. Tomorrow the trade press will publish the first in-depth and independent tests of the three new Raptor Lake CPUs, coinciding with the official launch.
