You can go much higher in CNX2. The scale is not the same as the Adobe products. Here is one where my initial USM settings were Intensity 40, Radius 7, threshold 4. I also used the Nik Contrast Filter with all sliders set around 30 and then did a final USM with Intensity 17, Radius 93 and threshold 18.
This is a hand held available light shot at ISO 8000 with D700 and 17 to 35 f/2.8 zoom at f/4, 1/60. This is pushing the limits of the camera
