Can't be much longer - they say Q4 2019, so they only have a month and a half left.
Great, maybe I've found my next upgrade.
it will be a downgrade from an 8700K.
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 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.
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.
not quite... it's Intel that can't produce anything in volume at the moment.
Wouldn't you be better off on a server platform with a comparable Xeon processor?
I am at my personal crossroads. One path is tossing more $$$$ at computer parts. The other path is selling parts and walking away from it.
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
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.
Maybe It's the f'n spending new and shiny all the time. Still have my 5.7Ghz 1.4v 7640x watercooled.
Gonna bust some shit up old school gpu's volt modded come winter time Gonna do sweet f'all computers 2 months min
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 Around the time Court Jester challenged me to kill my processor over 10 minutes run
Most brutal benchmark is x265 4K 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 ?
No not killed processor. Doing that test for another's proof processor is good.
XTU no idea. Not bothered with it since HWbot pulled points
Ah Headin's old #1 8700K did the highest frequency
I have not done x8 cores anything with XTU iirc OR prime 95.
Killing processors? 9900KF here lasted a few evenings of lite OC 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.
yeah it probably died of cold
i would too if i was hooked upto 2 truck radiators
are those things backup cooling for the house
