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.
