    This 8700K chip of mine can do 5.3 all day.....Steve.
    Intel Core i7 8700K @ 5347.86 MHz - CPU-Z VALIDATOR
    Good for you. I wish I could do that.

    Just so you all understand my reason for wanting the 9900K: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/new...-9th-gen-cpus/
    The new desktop processors include protections for the security vulnerabilities commonly referred to as "Spectre", "Meltdown" and "L1TF". These protections include a combination of the hardware design changes we announced earlier this year as well as software and microcode updates.

    * Speculative side channel variant Spectre V2 (Branch Target Injection) = Microcode + Software

    * Speculative side channel variant Meltdown V3 (Rogue Data Cache Load) = Hardware

    * Speculative side channel variant Meltdown V3a (Rogue System Register Read) = Microcode

    * Speculative side channel variant V4 (Speculative Store Bypass) = Microcode + Software

    * Speculative side channel variant L1 Terminal Fault = Hardware

    Yup, I thought so, but that would NOT be my reason ....

    The problem I would have at the present time, would be choosing which MB from ASUS, way too many choices, and which high end board is the best choice. This 9900K needs more volts, not sure how our 370 boards would handle it....when oc'd very high.

    @OldMike65, my only point was just a few years ago it was considered a great milestone if you had a CPU that could hit 5 GHz. Not so today. Almost any of the new CPUs Intel releases are expected to hit a minimum of 5 GHz. Heck, the 9900K will almost do that out of the box. Today if the most you can do is 5 GHz, you are considered to have lost the silicon lottery.

    The only difference now is sustained 5GHz on all cores.
    Intel says their guarantee is for one core boosting.

    What about the 9700K as an upgrade? Will be interesting to see how that compares to the 8700K.

    Your board now should haver no problem I think Mike.
    The only real difference in the chipsets seems to be the extras(video & sound from iGPU) for gamers and content creators, but not benchmarkers..

    Yes I Knew what you ment Steve, plus on my last build, (This rig) I got most of my advice from YOU. So I do listen to your comments very closely.....didn't know you also bought your chip from the Silicon Lottery thou. That is the only place I would get a 9900K if I buy one.

    Hi,
    Interesting Intel wouldn't do that :)
