This does not exist, but whether you mean the i9, or i7, don't buy it new, but if you already own it it's fine.

What are you using the pc for, and if gaming what games and resolution? Also do you mean i9 11900K or i7 11700K?

 

Usually 12th gen or in some cases Ryzen 5000 is better. Even if it's i5 12600K vs i7 11700K.

I am currently using my PC both for work (Ux designer) and gaming and in it I have the msi 3070, i5 10400f, mobo Asus z590 f, 16gb ram 2666mhz. And yeah I meant i7 11700k sorry for that .. I want to upgrade the cpu so that I can upgrade the ram to 3200mhz speed aswell

You don't need to upgrade the CPU for faster RAM. Unless you have H510/H470/H410/B460 you can run it at higher speeds on the 10400F.

 

I think for you the upgrade would definitely make a nice difference. But if you can sell your board and CPU you might be able to get 12600K and Z690 or 12700 and B660 instead which would be better.

You don't need to upgrade your cpu in order to use faster ram

It relays on the motherboard's chipset

You have on of best z590 motherboards, so ram clock wont be a problem

It can even handle a fully overclocked 10900K

If you went with that motherboard to upgrade down the road to a 10900K then I guess you can upgrade since it wont be available in a few months

If not, then its a pretty weird combo (10400F and z590 ROG F

If you want more cores go for a 10700K

An overclocked 10700K will match a core I9 11900K

Cheaper, same cpu

Best option is a 10900K with 10 core

Intel's 11th gen is a waste of money and silicon

Yes the 11700K should be perfectly fine for a 3070.

 

If you don't have it already you could also take a look at the 10850K. Those are around the same price range (a little bit more expensive) as the 11700K but would also give better performance and 2 more cores. Also the 10850K and 10900K (which are essentially the same) are arguably the best Intel CPU you can get for Z590 or Z490 motherboards.

 

What Ram do you have exactly? Because it probably already has an XMP profile which will give you a performance boost by just enabling it in BIOS (No need to buy new).

11700k is virtually the same as the 11900k.

 

The 12400 ($195) and a new motherboard cost about as much as the 11700 ($294) on its own though. The 12400 is generally faster and much more energy efficient. There's also an upgrade path.
