    After searching for a while benchmarks and YouTube videos, I went from i5 9600k to i9 9900k . Just running stock clocks .. amazing . Some games used to give me some kind of throttle but with this beast . Everything is a breeze. I know some people is going to be , oh way you didn’t go with AMD . I know the new gen from Rayzen are amazing , but is way to expensive to do that jump . I just stick with the big guns from intel , for a couple years .

    CPU utilization is well optimized, as this CPU can stream, game, and stay under 75%. In fact, I left a game open once, and had 2 games running simulataneously. Still worked fine; the only reason I knew I had 2 games open was not because of a performance hit, but instead just seeing the other game open. I run this with a Noctua NH-D15 air cooler, as I'm not a big fan of water cooling. Temps are well in line w/ this cooler. If you go w/ this cooler, make sure to get Low Profile RAM. I used 32GB of Corsair Vengeance LPX; non-LP RAM WILL NOT fit! Purchased this RAM from BBY as well!

    I9 vs Girlfriend comparison

    Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.

    Is it hot? Yes, the I9 and a girlfriend are hot. Does it make you poor? Yes, the I9 and a girlfriend will make me broke. Compatibility? I9 is LGA1151 compatible but a girlfriend is dependent on horoscope. Over clock? I can over clock the i9 but not a girlfriend. Resale value? I9 is good for resale value. Releasing a girlfriend is illegal to sell. Performance? I9 is excellent but a girlfriend can only be tested after marriage. 9/10 would recommend an i9 3/10 would recommend a girlfriend

    This thing is a monster! Currently overclocked to 5.2 with low 23c idle temps. While gaming it stays below 60c. I run warzone maxed out while having 6-9 tabs of chrome open to include spotify playing music. In the background ill have discord for communications. I wont have to upgrade this for years. I highly recommend to gamers or power users.

    Upgraded from an i5-8600k to this i9-9900k this year, was able to reuse my old Z370 motherboard. This CPU is the end of the line/peak of the 300-series board supported CPUs and depending on the price you paid its a great value (2020 discounted prices vs. launch). Runs HOT, be prepared to have a strong CPU cooler, especially when overclocked. Watch the VRMs on your motherboard if they weren't built for this so they don't overheat. 8C/16T is the new midpoint gaming CPU with games like Cyberpunk and others pushing CPUs to the max. Needed all those extra threads to support running multiple VMs as well with Covid and remote work.

    When gaming and streaming at the same time, my old processor was capping out. When doing the same with this processor, I’m looking at 50-60% usage tops. Definitely loving it so far. Was scared to break the box that it comes in, but it is fancy.

    Beast of a CPU

    The Intel core i9-9900k is great for workstation applications. With the addition of hyper-threading and a higher boost clock, the i9 handles CPU-intensive workstation processes much better than its i7 counterpart. However, if just gaming, there is no substantial improvement over the i7-9700k. The same applies for general multitasking. Overall, the i9 dominates workstation applications but is not worth it just for gaming.

    This cpu is a beast. I switched from i7 9700k to this due to lack of hyperthreading. the 9700k will stutter in some games but the 9900k will give you smoother experience. it runs hot so you better have a good cooling to pair with this. NO regrets spending money on this beast.

    Great CPU but cost is a bit to high

    I upgraded to this from a 2600K OCed to 4.4ghz. It was time to upgrade since I game at 1080p and I know that I was being limited by my CPU. I was able to get the 9900K to run sable at 5.2ghz all threads at 1.35v. I do run a custom watercooling loop with temps never going over 75c. I paired this with a MSI MEG Z390 ACE with Cosair LPX 2x16gb ram. Over all this was a great upgrade and will last me years to come.
