If you are migrating a system to a new case, say so.

 

What is the budget and in what country will the purchase be made?

Is this a computer you are buying or is this a computer you are moving over?

 

If this is a new computer well ditch the 9900k it's beaten by far cheaper cpu's like a i5 12400. That and it's already quite old and has no upgrade path forward.

 

As for a case a 4000D or 5000D would be good.

Not compatible, Z490 and Z590 are for 10th and 11th gen Intel CPUs (LGA 1200). Z370 and Z390 are for 8th and 9th gen (LGA1151v2)

 

But, neither are recommended. An i9-9900K is getting on in years and has no upgrade path. Instead, a 12th gen i5 with a B660 motherboard is recommended.

 

What country are you buying in?

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

I think pretty much everyone has already said it, but the 9900k is a good cpu, but there are far better cheaper options today. 

The 12600k has 10 cores, and is like a 3rd of the price.  As for a case, a 4000d, h510 flow, or lian li mini air would be good

Specs: 11700 | RTX 3060 | 32gb 3200mhz | 1tb 970 + 2TB HDD | Lian Li O11D Mini X Black

I'm 15 and live in the US

What heat concerns? It's only on the 12900k. The 11900k runs a lot hotter than a 12600k whilst performing worse.

4000D Airflow is a fine choice.

Thanks for the info, yeah 130 quid cheaper for a 12600k

alright so with a 12600k what are the recommended motherboards, well considering the 12700k is still 30 quid cheaper than the 11900k, that is also an option, any downside of going 12700k in terms of stability or temperature?

No, the newer architecture will provide nice improvements to performance and these chips are not prone to crashing. Both CPUs would be reasonably contained with the same coolers, so I wouldn't worry about temps.

 

Is overclocking a focus for you? If not, you should look for a non-k model of the i7 instead, and you can also save money on the motherboard.

For some reason pcpp has been putting this warning on 12th gen CPUs.

 

Any 600 series motherboard should be fully compatible with all 12th gen CPUs because they were released at the same time. So you won't have to worry about the BIOS version

If you are water cooling, The Lian Li O11 Evo is the best case. If you are aircooling I recommend either the corsair 4000D or the Be Quiet Pure Base 500DX.

According to intel's website the 12700k supports up to 3200 DDR4, so would save money here by downgrading to 3200 right?
