I5 9TH Gen on Z370 Motherboard?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi there,

i am looking for an upgrade to an i5 9th gen but am not sure on the motherboard - on PC Part Picker it says there is compatibility isues with the i5-9600K and a Z370 motherboard. Is this true as a Z390 is a lot more money? Also, if it is, are there some Z370 Motherboards that are compatible with it?

Thanks very much

Z370 could be compatible with it, but you never know if it was manufactured late enough into the 9th gen CPU's. If it was, it might just be compatible, if not it might not be..

Usually the boards - if compatible - will have like a '9th gen ready!' sticker on it, but you would have to ask the store if their stock has that.

Otherwise you could look into a board with BIOS flashback (updating BIOS without a CPU installed), but at that point you might as well just get an entry level Z390 board.

I guess, but you can just get a cheap used cpu to update the bios if you dont want to send the mobo back

I'm curious why you're considering the 9600K at this point

Because I want to be able to run a powerful cpu which has good clock speed and i can overclock

Exactly. Why the 9600k?

 

You've looked toward a 6 core, 6 thread unit with plenty of known issues..

 

The only two Intel CPUs currently worth looking at are the i7-9700K or i9-9900K. 

The $200 Ryzen 5 3600 has effectively zoned the i5 out completely.

At 6c/6t, the 9600K has plenty of known issues with the 1% lows (framerates drops, etc.) And issues computing certain games entirely. (Namely Farcry 5!)

 

You dont have to go Ryzen, but I wouldnt go Intel unless you're going all in on Intel. Budget Intel no longer makes sense.

Well its still better for gaming because you can easily OC to 5.1Ghz or more which is insanely strong for gaming.

The reason I'm going for an i5-9600k is because it gives me good overclocking capabilities. Also, most importantly, I like to play x Plane 11, a flight simulator, which is very much a more cpu intensive software. In this, clock speed is more important than hyperthreading or core count, and on a budget they recommended the i5-9600K. I've been closely monitoring the price of this cpu for a while and it seems I can get it for as low as £150 on amazon

Amazon uk? I have been looking at i5-9600K on there for the last 2 weeks straight the cheapest i've seen it is for £220 on amazon, though you can get a i5 9600kf for £199.98 of ebuyer (really good used plenty of times)

It hit £150 a few months ago, but only for about 24 hours

My other option is to just sit out and wait for the 10th gen to arrive and by then I might have enough money for the i7 10th gen

What motherboard do you have now?

I currently have an Asus P8Z77-V LX for my Overclocked i5-2500K with 16GB HyperX DDR3-1600 RAM , however I am looking to upgrade (if it's to the 9600K) to a Gigabyte Z390 UD, which is rated the best Motherboard for this low budget

I see. I though you have something more modern. In this case I'd recommend to wait for the 10th gen, it'll cause a price drop for both 9th gen and Ryzen.
