    You do get diminishing returns. You have to balance if 8 cores is worth the frequency drop in a power limited scenario.

    Nope.

    You also need to purchase a new motherboard, remove cooler, install new cooler, there;s a lot more going on for desktop as well.

    Even the operation of installing a new motherboard would take me around 12 hours of work.

    On the other hand, I'd still build my mini portable desktop again, it is a love machine.

    You forget that todays Z370 is still 300-series board. See also old Z170 with upgrade

    dayman from reddit/hardforum showed ES chip being used on z370 platform. intel however might make the adjustment to NOT work in z370. prema can prob get it to work no doubt, at least thats what im hoping LOL

    Welp, let's see if this will work for other motherboards as well...

    That would be lovely actually!

    yaw man the power of LGA, good thing like this happen once a while we'll be able to plug n play.. but ultimately i'd only trust prema really. even if Desktop mobo works, i'd still wait for prema for the OKAY b4 doing it.

    @Falkentyne when you switching to LGA bruh, 8 core coming wait for it and make the jump, dump the 4c BGA even if its the king of binned BGA cpu, sell it.

    I have something far more urgent and critical in my life to deal with first. Assuming I'm successful at dealing with that, then and only then will I get the 9700K (Or whatever it will be called) and GTX 1180 Clevo premamodded laptop. The MSI version of ANY 8 core will still have that hardwired EC overcurrent Power trip (CPU_CrtT = 1 ) (Svet is looking at seeing if disabling the "string" variable in the raw EC file is capable of disabling this without having to recalculate multiple checksums to avoid a brick).

    Yes, Brother @Prema does some amazing stuff, but he doesn't do any desktop motherboard :)

    Well I'm sure he's always got something going on in the pipeline.
