  1. CPU-Z should not be anyone's definition of stable. Aida64 OCCT RealBench Prime95 I ran Prime95 for 24hrs before I was really convinced my 9900k was stable at 5.1. It has never crashed in normal use...not once.
  2. The GamerNexus twitter is nothing but Steve bitching and whining about companies....it's getting really old. Anyone else notice this?
  3. Let's skip to the good part. When can I order my 3080ti and who wants to buy my 2080ti FTW3 Hydro Copper???
  4. You could bounce that thing off the thermal limit for years at the stock clocks. Chips are not as fragile as many want to believe.
  5. Hello! I have a BeQuiet Dark Base Pro 900 case and assemble a system based on the 9900K processor, I looked at the Asus Hero XI (Wi-Fi) board and heard a lot of reviews that it doesn’t fit into the body’s seats, I look at your first photos - there seems to be no problem, maybe there’s some trick to installing ?! And if you can’t install this board at all, can the "Code XI" model get up without problems ?! thanks in advance

  6. It shouldn't be too bad. The 9900ks he is talking about runs 5ghz all core from the factory and should cool fine under a good AIO or big air. Even at factory setting it should beat the 3700x in pretty much anything.
  7. When both are overclocked to their reasonable max, the 9900k will beat the 3700x pretty handly for almost all tasks. This really only matters if you are planning on overclocking.
  8. Get another CPU or another board and find out. BTW, I have the same board and it is awesome. It'll take anything you throw at it as far as OC is concerned.
  9. An EVGA z390 Dark has been running my 9900k at 5.1GHz 24/7 perfectly for the last 9 months.
  10. Congrats on the board. It is awesome. I am probably going to be putting mine back into use when the 10-series chips are available.
  11. Hmmm....I still have my EVGA x299 Dark. Sell my z390 Dark/9900k combo and buy a 10980xe?
