wrong. there's actually a pretty big difference between the phantom 6 and phantom 9's power delivery. if you wanna get the 9900k and OC it, this actually makes a huge difference.

So what's the difference?

Funny you tell me that, but when I did this review I found this.

The Phantom Gaming 6 also drops Wi-Fi support and some of the rear panel USB 3.1 Gen2 ports with a total of two composed of a Type-A and Type-C port; rounding off the USB is three USB 3.0 Type-A ports. A Realtek ALC1220 HD audio codec is included which offers five 3.5mm audio jacks and a single S/PDIF optical output and a trio of video outputs comprised of an HDMI, D-sub and DisplayPort."
