    I was under the same assumption with scorptec, but i had to paypal the funds to be able get 15th in the queue for a 9900k. Not sure about other stores.

    He does some testing of laptops from time to time. That teaches you all about figuring out the difference between turbo power and time limits, voltage caps, current limits, and firmware induced throttles. And he gets lots of freebie Razer laptops so ought to know ALL about VRM throttling :Pirate:

    Maybe they dropped the 9900k on his doorstep late and he missed the throttle because he was under time pressure and that always exacerbates a lack of technical knowledge

    Should still be a $300 processor easy for someone not caring on OC ... strange I know but they exist :weirdo:
    Anyhow 8086K is your Anniversary release " sneaky wintel withheld " meaning better binning than 8700K. So better than average for 52x 1.35v
    Top clockers still a 1 in 5 OR 1 in 10 chance to try for in shops. Why I won't bother when headin sells good ones for like retail prices :Pirate:


    Yes the full 8 core would be great on 3D benches. IMC chances should be better than lesser processors. BUT no I don't see it that way. Only it's a gimp :thumbdn:
    Just like the 8600K not many were strong over 5Ghz. Only the best silicon 9900K gives the greatest chance.

    I had a 8700K ... benched 53x for 1.535v on the hardest benches. BUT even thought it sucked on multi vs low volts it had insane IMC.
    The team mate in the US did LN2 like 68x core 68x uncore iirc
    ______

    Absolutely no guarantee with silicon lottery. I've tried x2 from the forum " both hot pieces of shite 1.4v "
    pre binning as headin does ... only dude I'd trust to test correctly. Outside of here on the internet, seller will make processor look better than it actually is.
    Then your looking @ best in the world overclockers with LN2 proven processors like Splave & your gonna pay x2 retail. After all they may test 20-30 processors looking for a few good ones.
    It's burns alot of $cash$ to be the best :tongue:

    heh coming from an 8700k (2nd batch) that could only do 4.7 / 1.32V (48x still wasn't stable at 1.42 so I gave up), my current "hottie" 8086k at 5.2 / 1.408V (as stable as I could test) is a god send!

    And you're damn right about burning some cash finding good clockers... last time I tried, I had a 4770k that stank... bought 3 more in hopes of a winner and they were all worse than the last.

    Cut my losses and sold the entire platform at that point. lol

    Happy with my 8086k, 4.7@1.16v and 5.0@1.28v on AIR, 9900k was tempting me until I saw the temps on air :(

    Yeah be interesting to see how low I could push the volts on this. Then again, tempted to try push higher. But don't really like exceeding 1.4V without extreme cooling.
    Holds up well with 1.4V on water. No real need to go any lower anyway. Still got 25' or so up my sleeve for those hot ass days with the fans barely audible.

    Intel sure knows how to blow hot air when they want too.

    Got a reply from scorptec, there sourcing from another supplier and still estimating on 2/11 i am 15th in line, so i guess the first batch might be over 50 units?
