Yes, the 8700K. More threads, same IPC, slightly cheaper.

Either be more constructive with your question or just don't ask obvious one's.
If money is not a problem of course buy the newer/better one.

It's not that perfect an answer. The threads are not the same as the physical cores the 9700k has, and multithreaded benchmarks aren't necessarily swinging wildly in favor of the 8700k. The price tag is due to the sTIM and the binning/architecture refinements to get the crazy high frequencies if the 9700k. 

 

The value of the 8700k is still better though.

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
