Liranan I think it's obvious that the Zen path is the best one to take. It works out slightly cheaper and cooler than the 9900K. The performance difference is too small for it to matter that much.

4)9900k>3700x at around the same price so you've done well.

5)I kinda doubt zen 2+ or zen3 will be am4 compatible just judging by amd's 2020 date, but who knows?

TLDR if you really want zen sell 9900k and h100 and 3770k setup, buy yourself a better gpu with the profits, buy 3700/b450 instead of x/x470, and snag a 1600/2600 b450 combo for sister reusing gtx 1060.

Edit or maybe sell 1060 and snag a used 580 if its a big price difference.

Edit no non x 3700 .... tf amd
  1. That does not bode well.
  2. The person was using a Z390-H which as per users on here, shouldn't be used with a 9900K in the first place. He already sold the RAM before even considering selling the board and chip.
  3. I can't sell the H100i and 3770K since I'm going to be handing it down. ( will be getting a air cooler if I went with Intel )

Speedster159 Here's some costs. Also mind I'm on a relatively tight budget right now so I could only upgrade the CPU, board, and RAM for now. M.2 NVME and a 2nd set of memory for a total of 32GB next month or two.

For Intel it would look like this.
  • This used 9900K 370.08 USD ( Already bought btw, considering to resell. )
  • A new ASUS Z390-E 253.21 USD ( Or a Gigabyte Aorus Ultra if I can find one locally... Doubtful )
  • 16GB 2x8GB of 3600 C18 RAM 136.34 USD
  • And a used MA410M TUF for this 3770K build I'm stealing the H100i from.. 48.69 USD
Now that's a total of 809.04 for the Intel build. This would put me 116.87 USD over budget but I can do it, while going AMD would keep me in budget with room to spare.

If I went AMD it would turn out like this.
  • Because of the sale of the 9900K I would be profiting 116.87 USD
  • A new 3700X 379.82 USD
  • A new Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming 7 247.37 USD or a used ASUS X470-F for 194.78 USD
  • 16GB 2x8GB of 3600 C18 RAM 136.34 USD
That would bring me to 763.53 USD with Gigabyte and 710.94USD with the ASUS. That would leave me 54.54 USD or 107.13 USD left because of the 9900K sale to spend on something else like a M.2 SSD or that other kit of RAM for 32GB.

I'm pretty sure the 3700X won't care to throttle at all with the Stock cooler considering how cool the darn thing is and won't make any difference to using the H100i, but I could test that.

Edit 1:Oh and going Ryzen affords me the option to wait more to have the prices lower even more... Currently retailers over here are selling above MSRP.

Edit 2: Going Ryzen would also give me a cheaper upgrade path in the future for the 3950X or the 3700X equivalent of Ryzen 4000 or maybe even 5000.

Not necessarily, from the little I've seen it does appear to have lightly better silicon than the 3700X, and boosts higher out of the box.

I don't think its really worth how much they're charging for it over the 3700X, but if you want the fastest ryzen 8c, that's it.

You'll likely need some b-die for amd though 3200c14 prices have softened quite a bit in the U.S.
Newegg seems they are just dumping it :/
