Air cooler, or liquid on 10900k?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am saving for a computer, and want absolute maximum fps at 1080p for Fortnite. I play competitive, and my frames drop in the endgame, so I am upgrading my computer. I want to heavily overclock a 10900k. I want to know whether a Deepcool Assassin III can handle the max 330 watt power draw of the 10900k. I going to be gaming and streaming if possible, using CPU encoding. GPU encoding seems to rubber band the game when using a face can. My second choice is an EVGA CLC 360 for maximum cooling performance, though I don't want to deal with an aio dying anytime soon.

Yes, but an AIO will net you cooler temps.

It only spikes to that. It's not sustained high temps.

You'd have to see how that AIO compares (they're not all created equal, and just because it's 360mm doesn't mean it'll be the best), but only you can decide if the chance of failure is worth the lower temps or not.

I'm gonna be the rain to rain on the parade but you'll still get FPS drops in it. It's broken software. Even with my i7 clocked high, I still drop frames heavily in random areas. The game won't behave even with an i9 at 6GHz so you might as well but a 10600K and not cook yourself in its heat as much

I understand frames will still drop, but I know I am very much CPU bound right now. My RTX 2080 is only pulling around 180 frames at competitive settings, and sits at 63-67% usage. I know I can keep frames far more consistent with a better cpu,. The game is not easy to run right now, I understand that, but I know an upgrade is needed, and a 10 core high clock CPU will stream with ease in future games.

You're better off waiting for a 4900X or. 4700X. The 10900K is a massive space heater and waste of money. Trust me, 350W of heat is not easy to manage both in the system and being expelled into your room. You'll need an AC else you'll be hating yourself and you'll stop playing sue to the intense heat

And on top of that, if your graphics card is just the 2080 then I would say upgrade the graphics card and not the cpu. Depending on your current cpu, you GPU may be the issue. I would say before going to a 700-900 dollar cpu, get a 2080 super or 2080 ti or something like that. It may be more expensive, but large frame drops tend to be from either lag or GPU throttling. Also check your WiFi/Ethernet because rubber banding is usually from lag and fortnite’s servers can sometimes drop large packets of info when on the final parts of a match. Also remember is that doesn’t work, get lots of rgb cuz it makes your computer faster.
