My Friends Build

My friend is looking for a build that can play most games max (2080 is too much $ ), any suggestions. He doesn't care much about aesthetics and wants at least 4 years out of his computer. my main worry is the cpu cooler; not overclocking much. Also thinking about 8700k. thx

Go with a 9700k, as a 9600k only has 6 cores and 6 threads, while a 9700k has 8 cores and 16 threads. I didnt notice when I bought my 9600k, so i'm stuck with it for now. Plus a 9700k isn't much more expensive than a 9600k, while having more performance than a 8700k.

9700k has 8 threads

Go with a 8700k. Even though its a generation behind it has 6 cores and 12 threads, as the new 9x series does NOT have hyperthreading.

Nope. The 9900K if you want 8c/16t.

Winter is Coming.

But you knew you were getting 6c/6t so what's to regret in your own rig?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

It was already ordered by the time I saw it was 6c/6t. I thought it had hyperthreading, even thought the previous generation didnt. I must've read something from somewhere weird that said it had hyper threading.
