    I will be testing it, my mate has preodered it. With enough luck he will let me try it on my tornado f5 before I put it in his desktop system.

    I think @Talon will try it for giggles, but the processor will ultimately end up in his desktop PC. I would only get one under two conditions: 1) I can buy a binned example that undervolts as well as my 8086K for less than $350 and 2) Intel announces that this will be the last series of desktop chips to use socket 1151. I hold out hope that we'll see a 10th- or 11th-generation CPU that will be 10c/20t or 12c/24t.

    This was a happy accident. I was doing some benchmarking and my machine was actually failing the stress test, scoring less than 94%. That wasn't right because it passed previous runs at around 97.1%. It turns out that for whatever reason Afterburner was not using the voltage profile I had set. No matter what I did, I couldn't get it to load, so I had to bite the bullet and recreate it. I went with a slightly more aggressive undervolt, and you see the result, which by the way was without using the fans at maximum speeds.

    You don't want to put a 10 or 12 core CPU in your Tornado do you!? Although would they be on a die shrink & therefore consume less watts for their number of cores? An 8 core beast is surely upgrade enough for your Tornado, you'd be doubling up on cores - that's solid! Hell, 8700K with their six cores is a fantastic achievement!

    I think I will settle with my 8700K now for a long time as I see scores of 9900K having only a 6% to 15% advantage over it depending on the task from some youtube videos. Gaming being a primary function of my machine and media creation, 8700K I see it as it fits the bill nicely. Now it's a matter of days before I install it in my laptop then run the benchmarks.

    Good news guys I found and bought a motherboard for my other tornado f5, should be coming soon. Only paid £70 for it! Way better than eurocoms rip off prices.

    This also means I maybe able to sell my personal tornado f5 with watercooling heatsinks and maybe with the i9 included (if it runs)

    I'm quite short on money after buying another car, good old vw polo lasted me ages.

    Yes finally, my laptop is alive! With an i5-8600k installed of course!

    Very nice! I am actually thinking of going 9700K in my F5 and keeping my 9900K for the desktop. I will probably try the 9900K in the laptop but I am thinking with a soldered 8 core without HT I would be pretty damn set. I may alternatively put my cherry 8700K into my laptop instead of selling that or donating it to a family member.

    Can you please NOT load a 4k + image on this forum?
    it took literally 45 seconds for this image to load.

    Use imgur and resize it or something.

    That's probably a good idea, because the 9700K is less heat dense than the 9900K. The 9900K has greater heat density due to the hyperthreading, which only really is there to make each physical core able to perform more work per unit time. The fact that you're putting this in a laptop with more limited cooling abilities, then 9700K is the best choice, especially when it comes to gaming where we're not likely to see benefits of 9900K vs 9700K just yet (in future yes). You might find you'd get a higher overclock on the 9700K vs the 9900K because of this heat density I talked about, which could then result in an even better gaming CPU than the 9900K when viewed within the confines of your laptop's cooling.
