  1. Yeah but the thing is, an 8086K doesn't deal with VCCIN or uncore. These are both required for Sky-X. It isn't about how different people prefer to OC their CPUs, it's about the process being fundamentally different from the mainstream chips.
  2. An example of the gaming hit of Sky-X is HWUnboxed's video on the 7800X vs the Ryzen 5 1600. While they did the testing at stock on the 7800X, and I am aware there is a large difference between a 7920X and a 7800X, the video is a good demonstration of Sky-X gaming performance core for core. It even loses in some situations to the 1600.
  3. Not in the slightest. On numerous occasions they have been shown to just either falsify numbers or take numbers from other publications. But I also raise you this question, why would you trust any publication that doesn't even specify their full methodology? For any sort of testing, I mean. For coolers, GPUs, CPUs, anything, you should always know the methodology behind the testing.
  4. What benchmarks were these? Typically people watch videos from random YouTube videos like "testing games" or "benchmark" and take them as fact, they aren't.
  5. More than likely slower than a 3600 without a very, very lucky overclock. It is a massive step back from a 10900K and massive is definitely not an understatement. The delid shouldn't mess with your monoblock too badly. It's an EK monoblock, either way it's not gonna perform great, the minor distance between the IHS and the block can be remedied with thinner thermal pads on the VRMs if you have problems. As for mem OC on Sky-X, I do not know of any beginner guides on the subject, but I also never bothered to look since I was experienced with memory overclocking on other platforms. 4 sticks
  6. The clocks are not the main reason gaming performance takes a huge hit. Even overclocking is not going to bring it even close to a 10900K. No, the IPC between all the Sky-X revisions are identical. Yes, the bandwidth helps massively and is the only reason Sky-X isn't even further behind the mainstream parts. No, the overclocking is completely different and involves totally different processes and methodology due to the necessity of cache OC and uncore voltage modifications, as well as VCCIN. As for heat, core for core, a 10900K is harder to cool due to core density. But the
  7. Well first off you're going to take a rather substantial hit to gaming performance. Second, good thing it's just a 7920X since the original R6E kinda sucked. Third, overclocking Sky-X could not be any more different from overclocking the mainstream parts, I implore you to do as many hours of reading and research as you possibly can to be educated on the topic before you ruin a somewhat decent CPU like the 7920X. As for memory, the extra bandwidth is what helps make up for the handicap of having a MeshBus Sky-X part. Without quad channel, gaming would be even worse.
  8. https://bittboy.com/pages/shipping-policy Seems pretty obvious to me that it says 15-25 days right there. As for tracking, on international orders, especially those coming out of Hong Kong/China, tracking can take days or a week+ to update as shipped. Basically this is what happens when you choose the cheapest shipping method and don't read the shipping policy.
  9. Don't see how, given its current state.
  10. This very much needs relocked
  11. I have yet to say anything hurtful other than pirate monkey is proficient at creating very heavy irony.
  12. Yes. And I very much have not crossed it.
