Anyone have a 9900KF? Is it any better at OC?
 
Just wondering if anyone has purchased and installed/overclocked the 9900KF (no discrete iGPU) and had a noticeable increase of success in achieving higher clocks at lower voltages than its 9900K sibling.

Any thoughts or opinions welcomed.

From everything iv seen there is no difference. From temps, to voltages to how high it oc's.

Well then that is some horse**** lol

It's just a 9900K with broken iGPU. See below:


Surprisingly, Intel decided to boost output by selling new F-series processors with disabled on-die graphics engines. These CPUs suffered defects during manufacturing that would have rendered their graphics subsystems unusable. In the face of a severe shortage, however, Intel figured out how to boost production by resurrecting chips that would have otherwise been considered defective.

Now, you'd expect to pay less for a CPU with fewer features. But Intel assigns its F-series models the same MSRP as existing processors with functional graphics. This gives vendors the green light to charge premium prices for handicapped chips, which is exactly what's going on. The Core i9-9900KF isn't widely available on Newegg or Amazon. However, when you do find it available for preorder on sites like B&H Photo, the processor oddly commands a ~$55 premium over Intel's standard -9900K.

Premium for the same processor with a defective then deleted IGP, suckers are born every day LOL.

Haha, this is so true!
This is so typical of Intel. I honestly can't wait for Ryzen 3000 to show up to make Intel sweat a little bit.
They're gonna have to step up their game some, to compete with AMD's price/performance madness.
Can't wait to see the CPU playground in 2 years to see what their next step is.

Apparently there might be a new revision with some hardware patches for the yet another leak in their CPU's...

The 9900KF is 20 euro cheaper than K here in the Netherlands but I wouldn't bother with it, integrated graphics might come in handy.

I have a 9900K but would love a Ryzen 3000...
Tried 2700X but it just didn't cut it compared to 5.1Ghz 9900k.

losing Intel QuickSync should be enough of a reason to not even consider the KF, ignoring the pricing woes :)

It seems they're not even very subtle about it, hah.

Where did you get that pic? :D :D :D i3 9000 has double the cores and cache though.
