    I've been considering the 9700K with the Gigabyte Z390 X Gaming board, I was planning on just doing this as a mobo/RAM/CPU swap from my current 3770 system and keeping my old PSU/drives. However, I've just noticed that the Gigabyte Z390's require an 8+4 pin 12v for the CPU. The Asus motherboards only require a single 8 pin. My current PSU only has a single 8 PIN. My conundrum now is do I go the Gigabyte as I always have for motherboards and purchase a new PSU with the extra CPU cable, or do I switch brands? Will there be much of a performance hit if I don't get the extra 4pin 12V going to the 9700K? (I'm not overclocking it). Thoughts/guidance please?

    Okay, so with OC and 1.3+v it shud hit 85c+ Now intel just needs to bring back their old STIM instead of this BS.

    Why do you not like EVGA ? I literally buy them because they have good resell value and EVGA ships replacement parts like LED and fans without you sending the whole card.

    Their new Z390 mobo look pretty weird.

    Temps are looking bad..and this is after delidding probably because of the 2 additional cores.

    In before comments saying the CPU is rated at 115c.

    My last AMD was a Barton that had almost a 100% overclock with water cooling. Used the conductive silver paint to unlock some ratios as well. That was around the time I joined OCAU. The water cooling was one of the first in Queensland. Fully custom made block, auto oil cooler radiator, fish tank pumps. The case used to turn heads at the LANs, but mainly because of all the fans.

    Speaking of the good old days, this Intel release remind me of the stupidly hot Pentium 4'd and Pentium D's that came out.

    If there is only a few $$ between the 8700k and 9700k, I'll probably get the 9700k. OR hold off for this next AMD release.....

    Really interesting watch. Thick is the new hot.

    Too many bad experiences with EVGA mainboards. When I use to work retail we stopped stocking EVGA because the failure rates was stupid high. Vid cards aren't so bad, they all largely come from the same few ODMs these days and the actual GPU speaks for itself.

    I think this is a pretty fair response and review.

    They are all copying Gamersnexus!

    IMO TTL and Linus prob gave the most accurate review for the average user, when Hardwareunboxed did there response video I felt that they should of disclosed they changed the power limits and they should of contacted TTL or Linus before posting that video for professional courtesy.

    Linus probably dropped it and accidentally disabled 2 cores. LMAO

    My understanding is the difference between reviews is in the default state the motherboards have the BIOS set to. Some mobos have a higher TDP set by default because they have more VRM phases and others have the factory 95W TDP. I dont believe reviews are changing these setting unless they are manually overclocking in which case they would say so. Which is why HardwareUnboxed summarized that Linus didn't get it wrong, they just used a different mobo with a lower TDP.

    I'm starting to lose track of all these meta/response videos. Intel did something stupid, so Hardware Unboxed made a video, then Linus made a comment in a video, then Gamersnexus and Hardware Unboxed did a video about that video, and then the CPU came out, so everyone made videos about it, and then Hardware Unboxed made a new video about Linus' video, and now this guy is making a video about Hardware Unboxed making a video about Linus making a video?

    Meanwhile Debauer got 7 million gigahertz at negative 1583 degrees using liquid adamantium then put a motherboard in the dishwasher.

    If I were a Linus type guy who has millions of subscribers and gets accused of being a paid intel shill I probably wouldn't bother doing competitive benchmarks any more, I'd just do a cool looking/themed system build and just run benchmarks on whatever system I built.

    Also I still don't have an update on when I'm gonna get my CPU :(

    Unobtanium. He used Unobtanium. Adamantium is for making unbreakable skeletons and claws. Unobtainium is for working magic.
