Depends on your cooling set up I suppose.
10700k is pretty much same as a 9900K - so if your just gaming, then 10700k will be fine, either will be fine. Going to need to cooling for either, even better for the 10900K!
I've got a D15 and FT02 so CPU cooling wise should be ok hopefully. Gah this OCUK thing is pretty tempting.
It's been payable on all imports now for a couple of years as Maldark linked
Oh well , won't be buying one of those then
I would be worried that the postage would be all stuffed up due to the Covid19 thing.
Hmm good point...
Couple of points from the leaked video
336w is the system draw on power
The CPU is 210w or so, compared to the 3950x which is 185.
The CPU is clocked at 4900mhz all cores and has temps at mid 70s to 80c running FPU stress test.
The 3950 has temps in mid 80s and is only clocked at 4000mhz. At 4300 mhz it will be drawing more power and pushing more heat.
I bought a Sim card from UK as I was supposed to go there this month over 2 months ago It stall has not arrived haha
Not via DHL express I'd imagine....
I have no idea who they used to send the item.
So DHL have their own aircraft and are still delivering to Australia I presume.
This does seem to be in line with what was said by Anandtech. https://www.anandtech.com/show/15758/intels-10th-gen-comet-lake-desktop
Intel states that the turbo power recommendation is 250 W motherboard manufacturers we’ve spoken to have prepared for 320-350 W from their own testing, in order to maintain that top turbo for as long as possible. Get ready for a 400watt giga chiller nuclear holocaust. Only a custom loop can cool this fucker.
i dont distain the brand that much, they are the new underdogs in the desktop gaming space now so they will actually have to compete and amd wont be able to pull shit like ab450 x470 zen3 scandal, so no i dont have blind loyaly to amd, they are also being massive ***** in the gpu space releasing broken shit with broken drivers as bad or worse than nvidia
mid 70s to 80s running FPU benchmark is very similar to the 9900k so it appears they have done a good job dealing with the two extra cores. Again this is cooler than the 3950x at 4ghz.
There is a very good chance you do not get taxed if you buy from OCUK. I bought multiple parts from there recently and not a single time I got taxed.
After taking the VAT off 10900k end up a bit cheaper than you get locally but you have to wait 1.5 weeks due lack of flights.
Even via express?
I think I maybe sitting this generation out, will wait for Pcie gen 4 support, the new CPU's seem a little lack luster at the moment.
Will be the first time not getting the latest gen stuff, sad really.
I'll just have to make the 9900k last another 6 - 12 months for the next CPU revision to see if Pcie Gen 4 actaully works on z490, we all know how Intel is.
Most of this stuff used to come in on passenger planes.
I suspect it will have to wait for the international cargo flights (if they can get it on) operated by Singapore Cargo and MAS Cargo.
Honestly the 9900K will last another few years. Development is hamstrung by consoles and the new ones aren't more powerful than a 9900K,not even close.
GPU upgrades are where it is at.
The ks is a much better processor than the k
