Dilemma time 9900k or 10700k

I currently have the asus prime z370-p II with the 9600k cpu and am wondering if to just slap a 9900k into it which is being sold for £480 currently or the option to grab a 10700k for £380 and use the extra 100 towards the motherboard, so depending on what board to get the 10700k, the board will cost maybe another 100+ on top off that.
I am also using 2 x nvme 500gb drives for main drives and will be looking at getting a 3080super or the 3080ti when they come out, would I benefit more with a newer chipset ? the current chipset and board atm runs just fine, for a 24/7 clock atm am using 4.9 ghz @ 1.36 vcore.
I have heard the 9900k runs a little hotter which is my main concern, but how hot does the 10700k run ?

My current thought process is just to suck it up on the temps and go for the 9900k as I can just put it on the board and get to overclocking it, where as with the 10700k I will have to buy wait and learn the new boards limits. Argh decisions decisions, i'm hoping some of u guys can shed light on this situation to help me decide.

Why paying more for 10700k (new motherboard) to get the same performance level as 9900k?
You have a nice upgrade path without having to change motherboard, use it.
And maybe next year you will prefer to change platform for next gen Ryzen....

A tough question!!! The 9900K is the simplest route but the price is so off putting as you are paying a £100 more but on the other side, you are having to pay for a Z490 motherboard. All I can say is that the 10700K runs cooler with the new tim and the shaved down chip and as far as overclocking is concerned it seems to be a good overclocker with 5.1GHz (mine) and many others achieving at least that with good temps. Mine runs 5.1GHz all core with a Ring of 47 and in Cinebench R20 and Aida64 Extreme I top out at 81 degrees though I have a 360mm AIO, in normal use like work and gaming the temps are just so low. The other positive on the Z490 chipset is the chance to upgrade to Rocket Lake. Personally I would go 10700K and Z490 but that is just me...Getting the 9900K at circa £480 with no upgrade path is what would stop me...

On the other hand like me, I sold my 8700K and Z370 motherboard for a good price which made my purchase to the 10700K / Gigbayte Z490 Ultra a much easier and cheaper purchase...!!! So sell your 9600K and Z370!!

Hmm really tough call for me to make, the 10700k is pretty much a 9900k clone accept the 9900k runs hotter (so thanks for that clarification vMax65), it would be the easiest upgrade. The 10700k opens the door to more upgrades and runs cooler but then for gaming, I doubt I would need more than what the 9900k/10700k provides given a 2-5 year span and gpu upgrades, the 10700k argument is winning for me atm with it being cooler plus the possibility off upgrading easier, which also means more overclocking headroom!!.
The other argument is, I have 3 other 1151 socket mobo's with one of them running the 3570k as a spare pc which my friends and relatives use when we are gaming (so i have some backups if one of them fails), I wouldnt have this with the 10700k, but also that means the 2nd and 3rd pc's I have in my household would have upgrades too, with more spares if I go the 10700k route. Or I could just sell the old spares to pay for the new 10700k + mobo + ram as i'm still on 3000 mhz memory.

Time for me to research the z490 chipset vs z370, if the benefits off the newer chipset is far greater, then thats me sold on the 10700k
