    There doesn't seem to be many 9900K reviews/benchmarks yet, maybe Cliff can do the first 9900K vs 8700K comparison.

    @Cliff

    If you do find the RGB strips and Aura get boring I would recommend a Corsair Lighting Node Pro as there is so much more customization. You have to run the iCUE software though. Does the Floe ring require software for it's RGB? I bet it's looking great!

    Ok yeah the TT RGB gear and software looks decent. Why don't you connect your LED strips to the TT controller instead of Aura and have everything synced up in the TT RGB software?

    You can't.
    They use a proprietary controller and connectors.

    I found a good use of the Enthoo's three optical drive space.

    I put the controller for the Riing Floe in it

    Some people think those ODD bays are useless, but I saw a video where someone building a water loop put his box shaped reservoir there.

    Just out of curiosity I went to Caseking's site to see if they had a date on the 9900K getting there(nope, not yet), but I did notice I ordered JUST IN TIME!

    I just got around to installing the Samsung 960 Evo NVMe SSD that I bought my son on Amazon Prime Day. Now, he has 2 NVMe SSD's installed in his PC. He was starting to run low on disk space and we just bought Call of Duty Black Ops 4 yesterday, so it was time to increase his SSD disk space.

    That 960 Evo is smoking fast.

    Has anyone run the Speculation Control Validation PowerShell Script from Microsoft? Speculation Control Validation PowerShell Script

    These are my results. A few false's in there to investigate.
