That's what my first mind when I read first post. Don't judge before you see what Silicon Lottery treat as good clock.
They sell 5.1GHz stable for all cores for such big price.
Insane completely. First video from german overclocker about i9-9900K destroy whole picture in my head about nice i9-9900K on Maximus XI Gene.
I would avoid him before DDR5 become available. i9-9820X is much better choice but for who...
for owners of i7-4770K and i7-4790K maybe, not us with DDR4 platform.
Buying two processors with similar number of cores with same memory standard is abnormal, that's for ultra rich people who not care about money.
2014-2015-2016 we had nice hardware, Haswell-E, Maxwell, Pascal, every year improvement was good, i7-8700K.
2018 only expensive craps, RTX2080Ti expensive fail 1500 euro some models, RTX2080 weaker than previous generation i9-9900K fail, I expected easy 5.0GHz on default voltage, max 65C stress in Prime95. Now only i9-9820X or we could wait on next generations.
