Over 10000K, eh? Still need to tell myself those are CPU's, and not monitors that are so bright they project an X-ray of you on the wall behind you... 😱

if only it would have been the sunny cove cores... also... I hit 3800cb points with the 3600 @ 4.2ghz locked so... cool for 175$ and a 60$ board

So technically you just can't cool it by aircooling of you want to stay on the safe side. Ok none of us will use Aida 24/7 but come on, this has gone too far. Prime95 with small FFT test may heat it up even higher than AIDA.

Sorry but, I cant agree with the Guru3D recomendation of this product. Ryzen 3900x has two more cores, 15% more multitasking performance and cost 20% less. No more!

Hilbert, Z490 boards don't start at $250 lol. There's a bunch of great boards for around $200 and you can also buy cheaper boards. $200 is the sweetspot, these are solid boards with powerful VRMs 6 layer PCBs and all the features you'll need.

well, its still the best gaming CPU and it is an okay CPU for multi thread application. So choose your poison, gaming or multi thread processing.

I just pulled the trigger like 5 hours ago lol. Gigabyte Z490I AORUS ULTRA + 10700K Now I have a 9900KS++++ lol Now to sell my ASUS Z390-i + 9700K for dirt cheap.

The 10700k/kf look great for gaming.

For gaming... i5-10600KF maybe not a bad pick. Might prefer it over 3600x for the similar price and push OC beyond 5K. Still, basically similar numbers. Just pick your red or blue poison. Intel 10600KF - $237 Ryzen 3600x - $249 Intel 10600K - $262
Just had to check local prices, sure you got them Intel prices correct? Also, if not overclocking the 3600 is still one of the best bang for the buck gaming CPU''s 10600KF - $308 10600K - $352 3600 - $201 3600X - $245 3700X - $352 Can probably find all of these a bit cheaper when comparing several stores in Denmark, price difference won't be that much different thou.

I would be looking more in the 10700k price range, but it's just too hot for me. If I can't air cool it with an o/c and keep it pretty quiet not interested.

The 10600K looks fantastic compared to the 8700K. They're basically exactly the same thing except the clock and price differences. I already felt the 8700K was the most you really need for gaming (at least today) so for the 10600K to be a couple hundred dollars cheaper, I could see that being pretty easy to recommend for gamers. Not all gamers, of course. As I say many times, sometimes all people care about is getting 60FPS. You can save $100+ on a different CPU that will get you 60FPS, and one that won't run so hot. The i5-10400F could be the best all-around gaming CPU for the price, but I don't know how that compares to a 3600. The 10900K also looks fantastic compared to the 7900X. Sure, it has 2 fewer memory channels and fewer PCIe lanes, but that seems to be the only place where it falls short. Those extra memory channels are enough to make the 7900X keep up despite its lower clock speeds, but I wouldn't consider the 7900X to be worth double the price. I don't find the 10900K easy to recommend. An overclocked 9700K is a smarter choice if you just care about the best gaming experience, and if you care more about multi-threaded performance, AMD has much smarter options for the same price.

Zen 3 will eat this thing alive in just a few months. Intel buyers: We want progress !! Intel: Progress ? Naaah, get a new motherboard you peasants! Joking aside, nothing new here, everybody expected this will be a terribly disappointing release, and it didn't disappoint in that regard: It's truly disappointing ! Anyone buying this either has too much money or too few brains. Or both.

There are a huge selection of Z490 to choose from. You don't need to buy an expensive Z490 board. The quality of the mobos are that good even a lower end, cheaper Z490 is great.
Yep. a $200 board will have everything you'll need. Z490 boards are head and shoulders above Z390 boards. A $200 Z490 board is as good as a $300 Z390 board, in general.

Z390 was pretty good across the mobo makers, you had some that slacked, like ASUS, but now Z490 ASUS has IMHO the best boards now.
I'm talking more about the build quality and features of Z490. The $200 Z490 boards all boast around 12+2 VRM phases, have 6 layer PCBs, all the bells and whistles you would expect. You would have to go to $300 with Z390 to get those things. Sure, you can spend a lot more on Z490 boards, but you don't need to. Boards like these will have everything you need https://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus-prime-z490-a-intel-z490-s-1200-ddr4-sata3-dual-m2-sli-crossfire-intel-25gbe-thunderbolt-3-atx https://www.scan.co.uk/products/gigabyte-aorus-elite-intel-z490-s-1200-ddr4-sata3-2x-m2-crossfire-25gbe-usb-32-gen2 https://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus-tuf-gaming-z490-plus-intel-z490-s-1200-ddr4-sata3-dual-m2-crossfire-intel-gbe-usb-32-gen2-atx

This is true. The power delivery and board layers are all top tier. I simply went with the Asus Extreme cause I can afford it and since this is like my only hobby and I don't drink or smoke or gamble, I justify it 😎
It's a great board, no doubt.

I don't think the Guru3D recommendation badge is meant to be against (compared to) something else. I believe it merely means if the product itself is fine and the price isn't outrageous compared to what you'd expect from the manufacturer. Of course if the product made no sense whatsoever when matched up against a competing product, it would probably affect the recommandation, but it's not like this CPU wouldn't have some merits if you are a HC gamer or all you do is use an application with extreme Intel optimisation and no AMD optimisation.

10900k tested with RAM 3600Mhz 9900ks tested with RAM 3200Mhz Small increase in gaming because of faster RAM?
10600k boosted higher. I think. The board tested with the 10900k doesn't have MCE enabled in bios by default, resulting in lower boost clocks. Not sure what board was used for the 10600k review because Hilbert doesn't specify. If it's the same board, it could possibly still mean that the 10600k boosted higher, resulting in better gaming performance.

Its quite sad really that this is all Intel has to offer. Sure the gaming performance is best in class but its such a small lead and the price difference is quite large, then there is the power draw and the heat issue too. Plus the motherboards are not cheap, but at least they don't seem to require a fan for the chipset which is nice as my X570 C8H chipset likes to run at high 50C near all the time. This CPU also has double the PCIE lanes it seems, 40 v 20 for Ryzen. Not sure how many of those 40 lanes are on the CPU though. I know Ryzen has 20 lanes on the CPU then I am sure 8 lanes on the chipset. To be honest though the average gamer would probably never need 40 lanes anyway but its a nice addition. Zen 2 seems to mitigate the massive clock differences between it and 10th gen Intel by its improved IPC over previous gens, stock access to higher clockspeeds (3200MHz V 2933MHz), and larger cache size as well leading to it not having to swap out into system memory so such. I don't see me upgrading anytime soon from my 3900X it serves me well enough. I just want a new GPU that beats my 1080Ti by at least 50-80% so I can then finally move onto 4K@120Hz. I don't even see me upgrading to Zen 3 either. Will probably just skip it and wait for Zen 3+ or better yet Zen 4. But by that time Intel should be on 5nm along with AMD too which should be the time when this war really begins 😀

I'm in a similar boat with my 1080TI, but sorry to burst your bubble but 50% over a 1080TI (which is kinda close to an OC 2080ti) would not cut it...unless you're on old games then even a 1080ti can hit it on games 😀 Still i'm hoping the 3080Ti to be getting 4k maxed settings ultra 60-100fps, that is my hope anyway. Would love more but rumours say i shouldnt get my hopes too high. Prices in UK seem a bit much, AMD has decreased their 3XXX series mind you since they have been out awhile and most likely due to intels coming out. But price sadly not as competitive as it should be. And anyone in the top end going for 4k games somecases even 1440p that gaming performance just is not there anymore. Heat is also way too much, as someone who knows they will have horrible luck with liquid cooling and chooses to keep on air, this just means I could never look to purchase an i9 in its current state, hitting 90+ degrees is insane, would need some AC fitting in my house
