    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 .

    doesn’t even need over clocking but honestly i wanted this CPU for when i needed to ramp a piece of tech up to blistering 5.0 gHz. AMD doesn’t really do it for me....

    I love this cpu, but the packaging was totally crushed and broken when I received it. I would absolutely recommend this cpu to anyone with the funds, but definitely do not have it shipped.

    Pros mentioned:
    For games

    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!

    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

    Powerful

    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 the I7-7600k to this beast, and WOW. I have it over clocked to 5.3GHz with the thermaltake Floe Dx premium AIO and it is blazingly fast. Windows starts up before I can get seated, apps open and run seamlessly. If you're of waiting for the next gen of Intel CPUs - don't. Get this one, excellent price, 8 cores, 16 threads, hyperthreading, everything you need to blow the competition away while gaming and then log off and do some Adobe Photoshop.

    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.

    Excellent cpu, doesn't run as hot as some say. Have mine over clocked to 4.8 all cores 1.25v and never see Temps hit 60c under load. Did overclock it to 5.1ghz on all cores 1.35v and Temps were 75 to 78c which is still decent. But be mindfull it all depends on cooling and silicon lottery. Im running a corsair h150i 360 aio radiator.

    First off, this CPU is one of the best I've ever seen let alone used in my entire life (for 1511 socket). It runs extremely well with all programs, keeps up with every task, and multiple at once due to hyperthreading, and is absolutely incredible for gaming. No GPU on the market (other than MAYBE the RTX 3090 overclocked) will be bottle capped by this bad boy. Runs extremely well even out of box

    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.

    It was a great CPU you can buy. There are better CPUs now but because this cpu is cheaper than before, I might want to get this one. And you need a good cpu cooler.

    8 cores 16 threads. Does exactly what it says. It’s a good workhorse and I am able to run multiple tasks and game at the same time on my z390e motherboard. I highly recommend this processor to keep up with games and applications so far.

    I need to say that Dana is the most amazing person ever !! You are so lucky to have him working for you!! Not only was the product we purchased great! But Dana took the time to help my 13yr kid son with his MANY gaming questions! I really can’t say enough good things about him! A true saint!
