  1. Those bumps are integrated standoffs
  2. Need to look up specific reviews of model. Not all implementations of laptops are created equal. Some will have firmware imposed TPD limitations that you can't get around. And each has their own cooling solutions that you can't judge by a spec sheet. A higher end CPU might actually perform worse than a lower end one from a different model because of these reasons.
  3. Yes, if CPU limited. It is something of an equalizer when looking at benchmarks; often CPU reviews use "spec" so 2933 for 10th gen and 3200 for Zen3. When both paired with equal RAM, the performance gap closes some.
  4. Seems Z590 boards are expensive AF again....cheapest I could find was the wifi version https://www.amazon.com/GIGABYTE-Triple-Wireless-AC-2-5GbE-Motherboard/dp/B083HZ6D35 If you haven't purchased any of the parts yet, I'd reconsider the 5600x with a cheaper B550 board.
  5. If you're getting a K chip, get a gigabyte z590 UD. cheap and performs well.
  6. Officially, I will stick with my 10900kf until I get a GPU that bottlenecks it (5000 series, likely I'll skip 4000) In reality, it will depend on my willpower to not get the latest and greatest
  7. Maybe find an i7-6700 office PC, swap the CPUs, and sell off the other one or use for another purpose? Something like this https://www.ebay.com/itm/274949450909?hash=item400443ac9d%3Ag%3AZOcAAOSwLh1hQ4Rl&LH_BIN=1 And then sell off the OEM PC for $150-200?
  8. I think has more to do with AMD chips being much closer to their limit at stock than Intel chips (although at this stage of 14nm so are Intels) They both hit a wall at some point where they will need more and more voltage to get a tiny bit more gain.
  9. It's not apples to apples anyway, since they have different architectures
  10. VR VOUT 1.225v current/ 1.197v min/1.325v max. Seems fine to me.
  11. When you manually OC, things will be different. At stock values, the motherboard will usually apply more voltage than is actually required for your sample so that it can accommodate the vast majority of samples - they need to make sure any chip you put in there will work even if it's a low bin - the 10850k being even more so due to it being a lower binned 10900K. Honestly unless you want to spend a whole lot of time messing with things for the fun of it, performance differences aren't huge. I would just let it go as it is and as long as all-core load isn't too high of voltage and
  12. To echo everyone here, just replace what broke. For stock operation, you don't need either an amazing motherboard or cooler for a 9900k. Wife has a mid-range Gigabyte Z390M Gaming and a Cryorig H7 Quad Lumi. Handles it fine.
