Huh? What's that has to do with my first build?

Why are you saying that?

Because it often goes above it's advertised TDP. (My 2700x does the same thing)

You bought it already so why bother asking? 


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I can cancel the order, sir

Well then I'll just refer to the default answer.

If money is not a problem then it's a no brainier to get the very best gaming CPU that exists.

As to the OP Question the I9 9900K is the best Gaming CPU At the Moment and is incredable if you do some rendering...

 

All in all if you have the cash then splash

This is definitely not a universally true statement and needs clarification.

 

My 9900k (now delidded and using der8auer's direct-die frame with liquid metal) + power modded and water cooled Titan RTX rig is using a 2560 x 1440 165 Hz Gsync monitor and definitely doesn't hold 100fps at all times in every game (with all settings maxed out). To be fair it can hold it with say Battlefield V, but in Witcher 3 no way, in World of Warcraft it is always below 100 fps if I'm in a city around other players.

 

You're absolutely right though in Minesweeper.

Because there's always a bottleneck somewhere.

Nope. I like both company's with both having better and lesser products. I just don't consider the I9 a good value for the money to it's I7 counterpart.

right - just saying we shouldn't give blanket statements that "setup X will give 100+ fps in most games at high resolution" because we're still not there yet with hardware processing power for higher resolutions with max graphics settings. Sure, 2560 x 1440 with high fps is achievable if you don't mind turning down all the graphics settings but what's the point outside of competitive online shooters? (and in that case why not just run 1080p low or 720p low to really crank up your fps?)
