I was considering upgrading my gaming PC to a 2700x and X470 mobo. 
I don't know much about Ryzen but I see a lot of people having a problem with 2700x. RAM problem OC problem, colling problem. If it's that hard to change from Intel to AMD then I don't have the time.

So 9700k vs 8086k instead. Which has better thermal @4.8GHz-5.0GHz. Using Kraken 72

Gamer Nexus got 9900k in Prime95 non AVX workload 5.2 @ 1.28V 60c 70c 71Celsius for the worst case. Not bad, But that was delided and water cooled.

Extra cores is mostly better then threads

But not always.

I may be wrong.

It's kinda useful to state what will your user case be.

Just need a new PC. YouTube, Movie, very little games, most work.

Money is no problem, The noise is.

Frankly I see no reason to upgrade any thing the i7 4790K is way more than enough for common desktop usage, if your gaming experience is not the best you can hunt a good deal on a GTX 1070 Ti, GTX 1080 or even the RTX 2070, the CPU will keep up for the most part while giving you huge gaming performance.

 

This 4c/8t chip is still quite up to date for general usage and even gaming when paired in balance with the GPU.

My son gets my old PC when I get my new one, and I want to try out Ryzen but I can wait for 7nm for that.
