    9900k or 9800k for a new PC Build

    On my 3930k. It runs at 3.20Ghz stock. When Turbo is enabled. It runs at 3.8Ghz. I usually set it to Sync all cores. Which would mean all cores will run at 3.8Ghz when its being used. I have Windows 10 Pro's Power Option set to Balance. So that all the Cores aren't running at the full 3.8Ghz all the time. If I wanted all cores to run at 3.8Ghz. I would set the Power Option to High Performance or Ultimate Performance. Those two Power Options would actually us power from the PSU. Its a good thing my PSU is a 850 watt. The 9900k will probably use way more power when overclocking all cores to 5.0Ghz. If I get a 9900k. Then all I would need to do is enable Turbo, Sync All Cores and allow Windows to manage the power.

    Of those 4 Motherboards. Which one do you recommend? I heard the Master is popular. Some use it for its overclocking features. I don't really do any overclocking as the ambient temps in my room wouldn't be good for such things.

    What if I were to get one of those Motherboards with more PCI-E 16x slots? Would that even work better? I read you can do SLI on a Z390 board I believe. Not that I want to do that. But still. The motherboard has to provide you with plenty of PCI-E lanes. Theoretically, Having the Capture Card and Soundcard on the last two PCI-E slots shouldn't interfere with the 1st PCI-E 16x slot.

    I'm thinking about the NHD15. The current CPU cooler is similar to it. But Phanteks hasn't done a refresh or a new model of this cooler for years.

    My system isn't really quiet. I have the fans always running at 100%. The ambient temps in this room wouldn't be ideal for a quiet system. Because this room is usually around 80F or more. and I need really good cooling all the time.

    This is the PSU in my current system. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817494009

    As far as features are concern. It needs to have 6 sata ports due to having 5 SSDs and a Blu-ray writer, and plenty of USB ports on the back. on my current system. the only things connected to the USB are the keyboard, mouse, webcam, blue yeti mic. and a powered USB 3.0 hub. Also this current system is using a LEPA 850 watt Gold PSU. Its been working since 2012.

    I see. Though I want a bit of overclocking. I read the 9900k turbos up to 5.0Ghz on 1 or 2 cores I think. and hopefully my current CPU air cooler can handle it. If not. I'll have to go with a Noctua NH-D15. I don't want to deal with liquid cooler. since my system is already running 24/7. The HAF X case provides plenty of air flow because of the fans it has on the front. side, top and back of the case.

    Is that due to overclocking? Because that isn't something I'm doing with my current system. I just have the system using the XMP Profile of my ramp and setting the CPU at Turbo Mode and in all cores. So its always running at around 3.8Ghz.

    What's wrong with Asus on the z390 platform? My current system which is the x79. is running on an Asus Motherboard. and its been working fine ever since.

    So your saying the 9900k is the one that is the overkill?

    9900k or 9800k for a new PC Build

    Ok so your saying having the GPU and the Capture Card forces the GPU at 8x PCI-E on a 9900k. That is something I'm not comfortable with. Because i want the GPU at its full 16x PCI-E. Its why i went with the 3930k in the first place. I may have to settle for the 9800x. Because it has 44 PCI-E lanes. That's 4 more PCI lanes then my 3930k. and I feel more comfortable with that. After all the 9800k is part class of CPU configurations for enthusiasts. Which is what I consider myself to be. Someone who just wants a computer that does everything. I'm also comfortable with the whole quad channel memory setup as well. Is it overkill? Yes! But that is the point. I want something that's completely overkill. that will last me for a couple of years. Kind of like how the 3930k has last me for a couple of years since 2012.

    I moved away from hard drives and went SSD for boot drive and storage drives. I no longer want to use mechanical drives for storage. Which is why I have 5 SSDs. I have 2 512GB SSDs from Samsung. 2 500GB WD Blue SSDs. and 1 1TB WD Blue SSD. I like to use them all for media storage and backups.

    What about the 5 SSDs drives that I have? Also I haven't really stream any PC games. Just console games which is why I have that Elgato Capture Card. I don't stream all the time. Just sometimes depending on the game I want to play.
  15. I'm thinking about a new PC build as an upgrade to my previous build. My current system is an Intel i7 3930k with 16GB of DDR3 1600mhz Ram. It currently has a GTX 1080 Ti, a Soundblaster Recon3D Fatality Champion Soundcard. An Elgato Game Capture HD60 Capture Card, Pioneer Blu-ray Writer. 5 SSD Drives. The CPU Cooler is a Phanteks PH-TC14PE. The case is a Cooler Master HAF X. The upgrade would be simply swapping the Motherboard, Ram, and CPU from the case. and putting in a new ones. I will still us my existing hardware. Based on the research my 3930k has 40 PCI-E lanes. The 9900k has 16 PCI-E lanes and the 9800x has 44 PCI-E lanes. I'm not running a dual SLI setup or anything. Just that I have 3 PCI-E cards in this system which I mentioned above. Its a known fact that the CPU with the most PCI-E lanes is for running a system with dual GPUs. But I never really intended to do that. The 3930k was considered a high end gaming CPU at the time. Its the reason I built it in the first place. It was an enthusiast class CPU that does everything. I dabbled very little on video editing. For example shooting home movies with my video camera which only records in SD quality. and then adding the files together to create a DVD. So I have two options. Either the 9900k or the 9800x. Both have there strengths and weaknesses. So I don't know what's best for me. Both of these CPUs are 8 cores and 16 threads. My 3930k is 6 cores and 12 throws. and I would love to make the jump from 6 cores to 8 cores. Will having a GPU, Soundcard, Capture Card, along with Blu-ray Writer and 5 SSDs mean I need more then 16 PCI-E lanes? The 3930k has 40 PCI-E lanes.
