After going full loop recently with dual 360 rads and the works and My KS is still a crazy little heat monster. Lol. I really can’t see how them shaving the die and adding a thicker heat spreader is going to be able to combat 2 more cores on such a small die in such a small package. I dunno. The smart person in me is trying to talk sense in myself so I realize I don’t need to buy one. Lol.

What you think?
Stay tuned...

Have the pricepoints been released yet? Also I HATE ordering a mobo before review are out. Apex looks nice but only 2 Dimm slots, not looking to upgrade mem if i dont have too.

They're available for pre-order on Newegg, or at least some of the processors are. The i9-10900K was listed at $530 and the i7-10700K was listed at $410.

I might make the move this holiday season if i7-10700K temperatures are okay for ITX, but I'll more than likely hold off until DDR5 is mainstream. I ordered a 2x16GB 3600 MHz kit the other day. I plan on building a B550 system with the RAM I'm removing from my system.

Don't forget to post your default VIDS on your new processor (with AC/DC Loadline at 0.01 mOhms).

I would wait for 3rd gen, Zen.

If you must have a new PC now then probably 3900X is the expensive sweet spot for mainstream platform.

As much as the reviews have come in with some interesting information regarding thermals. Hot but surprisingly not as bad as I anticipated. Might actually be able to eek some good clocks out of one with proper cooling.

Ive decided to sit this one out. Its taken some coaching and restraint but im happy with the decision. LOL. Once I had added everything to cart. Cpu, MB, Ram. I just couldn't swallow and justify the price for a "FUN" project considering I already have a great quality 9900KS. It would be stupid and deep inside i know I would regret wasting the money. At this point in time I really wont end up utilizing the extra 2 cores properly anyways. I do zero productivity work.

Hope you get what your hoping for over your 9900K! May the silicon lottery be kind to you this time round. LOL.

Yeah I had the same thoughts. I'm trying to smart this time and not waste my money like I normally do. I'll sit this one out as well and try and not upgrade for a few years, except the GPU won't pass up the 3080TI if it has HDMI 2.1.

Considering I upgraded my cooling 3 times in the past year, I should be able to fight the urge this time.
