i have read and seen videos with broadwell-e that suggest its not as overclock friendly and several times where the cpu has died. so it seems the broadwell-e cpu is easier to kill with an overclock. some of the auto settings seem to be causing problems too, as auto voltages go higher than they should. after seeing that i would stick with manual bios overclocking and only go with a medium overclock. i don't have any overclock guides to point to, but i would recommend finding two or three (hopefully for your motherboard) and compare them against each other, and get to know the overclock settings.
Thanks, Ronin. Your thoughts confirm my process. Actually the 6850K works pretty well for overlooking, apart from the 6800K which I considered to buy at first.
This is a pretty good overclocking guide for X99 boards including latest 6 and 8 core processors:
He is also talking about AVX applications what will be important for the future. If am not mistaking neither PP nor AE CC are using AVX processing, right?
i suspect premiere does use AVX, but i cannot confirm.
