    Hey got few questions, anyone know the ETA i9 109x0X series? says Q4 2019 on Intel spec pages(i.e. same with 9900KS).
    Do you think 10900X might be much better bang for buck than 9900KS?
    Which low end X299 mobo would you recommend? Asus Prime X299-A is $389 at MSY, Gigabyte X299 UD4 is $419 at PCCG.

    No, it's a terrible proposition. It will be slower than 9900k in gaming, and slower than 3900x in everything

    Why do you want X299?

    Patently untrue. For applications like DaVinci Resolve and the majority of video editing software Intel still solidly thumps AMD.

    I was just considering 10900X(mainly cos massive price cut), it might overclock really well and should be bit faster than 9900KS at same clock speed etc.
    Also X299's got some advantage over Z390 like quad channel memory etc right?
    Looks like 10900X's gonna be ~AU$1000 RRP(~AU$100 higher than 9900KS according to Intel spec sheet).

    I think overclocked 10900X should be able beat/match 9900K, and easily beat 3900X in games.

    What do you need quad memory for?
    If you're worried about games then i doubt you'd see a difference between 2 & 4 channel.

    If you still own your 9900K (that does 5.2Ghz anyway) and your Z390 then keep that!!!

    You would only go to X299 if:

    - You want 18 cores/5GHz + to help with benchmark scores <-- yes this is justified for those that want to play at the top of the charts

    and/or

    - You use content creation software primarily on the PC that favors Intel, thus wanting more cores to decrease render time.

    If you already have 9900K/Z390 and use it mostly for gaming....zero reason to move to X299....and a complete waste of time/effort and money (and this is coming from someone who has been obsessed with HEDT since the X58 days).

    Yes you might get a few extra bench points with quad mem and more cores....but only justified if benching is the primary reason for the PC

    I you want better scores with your existing hardware then look at custom water or even better chilled water.

    Forget the AIO and air stuff if you want to push more than what you currently can.

    sorry not trolling you, a genuine question here but you have a 5.2GHz 8C/16T beast and a goldn(ish) 2080Ti.....

    What possible better gaming performance do you want?

    Surely there is zero bottleneck at any time on your PC??

    Settle down with what you have and enjoy it.

    If you have itching hands build a second x299 build for top end benching.

    Or upgrade your cooling on your current build.

    lol kk I'll just keep it.. don't think my 9900K is special but think I def got very lucky with 2080Ti. (it would do great on water probably, but i'm not into wc..)

    Only when I have too many p0rnhub windows open.. I need to go back to 64GB RAM. :(

    I'm just going by the price on Intel spec sheet.
    9900KS = AU$900 RRP (US$524 RCP on Intel spec sheet)
    10900X = AU$1000 RRP (US$599 RCP on Intel spec sheet)

    590 USD is 1000 unit per cpu price. Likely it will be close to $1K per CPU Aussie shop price.

    I'm going off the same datasheet. This is all rather confusing. The one listed by GN reports $580US per unit which converts to $840AU by today's conversion rate.

    9900KS = US$524 RCP = AU$900 RRP(after all the bs tax)
    10900X = US$599 RCP = AU$1000 RRP(after all the bs tax)
    If US$524 = AU$900(confirmed) then US$599 = AU$1000

    lol I was only jk oc.. but w/e :D
