8400 to 9900k?

Hey guys. I have a 3 years old 8400 CPU. I was wondering if I should upgrade to 9900k? And would the upgrade be worth it in games etc?...

I have a 144hz 1440p monitor with a RTX2070 super.

The reason I wanted to go for 9900k instead of 10900k is that I can still use my current mobo with the 9900k if I am not mistaken. Since they are both the same motherboard family.

Eh... what's your motherboard? It will be worth but the question is, whether or not your motherboard can take the MUCH higher power draw.

Eh, no. Don't. VRM on that board is utter trash that can throttle with... stock 9600k.

So best thing is go for a new motherboard with socket 1200 and perhaps a 10700k or a 10900k?...

I will also have to replace my cpu cooler too right? By any chance cpu coolers for 1151 mobos work for 1200 mobos?

They do, mounting sockets are very same as in all previous sockets. You can go with a 10600k as well as it's a 8700k in new dress (higher number and nothing else ), even a Z490-A Pro is perfectly fine for an overclocked 10900k.

What about a 9700k with my current setup and wait for what INTEL will bring in 2021? I hear that socket 1200 will be obselete fast?

9700k is already obsolete right now, 1200 will accept 11th gen and PROBABLY will support PCIE 4.0 too as motherboards are done with PCIE 4.0 standard, just the 10th gen does not support 4.0. Sticking to 9700k would not really benefit you, while swapping to 10600k let's you grab a significantly cheaper CPU than 9700k, which doesn't fall too far away from it and let's you upgrade to next gen as well.

Thanks for all the info. I will look in to it. I will also check out the AMD Ryzen series. No idea if the fuss is right.

I'd stick to Intel when it comes to 120/144Hz screen, I'd expect Zen 3 to at most equalise with 9900k.
