    Can't be much longer - they say Q4 2019, so they only have a month and a half left.

    Folks, this isn't The Pub. I just deleted a lot of very low-quality posts from this thread. Discuss the topic, not each other, and have your meme battles elsewhere.

    The real cost of buying processors for doing overclocking scores :sick: 9940x was not all that great. $2100 buy. Little use $1400 sell.
    Bought a new 10900x $1000. Why not hey? These were $1500 in shops for a long long time here AU
    Then an Apex VI board last night $450. Finally get to see what this thing can do. :tongue:

    Price cuts have obviously brought the punters back to the HEDT platform, I'm struggling to find stock of the i9-10980XE for our work machines.

    Wouldn't you be better off on a server platform with a comparable Xeon processor?

    I am at my personal crossroads. :tired: One path is tossing more $$$$ at computer parts. The other path is selling parts and walking away from it. :thumbup:
    When doing HWbot scores feels like a choir.

    Needing money is not a factor. Spending time on other things is.

    Feels like a mid-life crisis :lol:
    Sell off the stuff you don't use, keep some stuff you do like. Then walk away from it, wait a few months and decide whether you want to still be involved in the PC community or not. Take your time, there's no rush.

    Imaging you have a 9900K/9900KS/9900KF that can do 5.7 Ghz on water and Prime 95 Stable :O :O ! Whats the highest stable 9900K/9900KS/9900KF Prime95 Stable CPU you ever had Shane?

    Never a thing I liked Prime95. XTU has that in it with small fft's ... it hammers the processor even a short minute I don't like it.
    I don't know best prime95? Guess one may have done 53x :confused: Around the time Court Jester challenged me to kill my processor over 10 minutes run

    Most brutal benchmark is x265 4K :Paranoid: Bitch of a thing to run, will bring any processor to it's knees

    So XTU small FFT, best 9900K/9900KS/9900KF you found was 5.3 Ghz on water ? Or whats the best 9900K/9900KS/9900KF you found on XTU Small FFT and at what volts? If you have managed to kill a processor within 10 minutes, I am assuming you put too much volts on it ?

    I have not done x8 cores anything with XTU iirc OR prime 95.

    Killing processors? 9900KF here lasted a few evenings of lite OC :rolleyes: Junk. It was not treated bad

    If you want to kill a processor just give it to CJ. Guaranteed he’ll try to delid it and snap it.
