    Probably will be even with 95 TDP and solder, look at the 8950HK and its "45w" TDP
    One can hope

    The 8950HK Crap Locked to "45w" TDP can't keep higher clocks than max 3.0GHz in fully load on all cores. 9900K is 4.7GHz all 8 cores.

    I have the p870DM3 what is the official supported cpu I can upgrade to with "ver 3.0 p870dm23 try support c612t processor "
    I am looking to pull the trigger. Do I need to modify anything or am I good to go?

    Nothing is official here. People have successfully ran the 8700K in the DM3 IIRC, that's why the BIOS exists. Might want to ask someone with experience with it

    It'll run very very hot on the stock CPU heatsink.

    Although the 6700K is also a "95W" TDP CPU it doesn't actually pull anywhere near that at stock, it's turbo is basically nothing, 4.2 single 4.0 4-core over 4.0 base clock, and it would hardly ever be power limited even 95W let alone the +25% 112.5W standard turbo power limit.

    The 9900K, since it has a much bigger difference between base 3.6 and maximum turbo 5.0 single 4.7 8-core, will be bouncing off the turbo power limit feeding 8 cores as fast as they'll go

    Turbo and TDP all depends on the load scenario. The K of course lets you extend those stock limits.

    Interesting, I guess I have to wait and see. Any chance of getting more info about the beefed up vrm I see some of the changes but am afraid I will miss something. I'm not the most knowledgeable on the subject as it is slightly above my level at this point. also if any one can tell me a good book that covers VRMs i would be interested in reading it.

    Actually hardcore overclocking on youtube does breakdowns of VRMs.

    I've watched all of buildzoids stuff on VRMs some time ago. Part of my interest in this mod are the skills that transfer to vrm design. I have some projects I'm working on that I'm pretty sure in the end is going to require me to come up with a custom power delivery. The rest of my interest is exactly what this thread is covering which is improving the multi tasking abilities of my laptop without having to be wasteful with natural resources and energy for manufacturing.
