    I legitimately have never purchased a warranty for anything is it worth getting a higher warranty?

    If you're paying with credit card and the card has extended warranty coverage, then it's basically a free extra year. Some cards will even have 2 years for free

    Yes, that’s my thinking, I was thinking to get a clevo but then I check the prices and are head to head with the dell here in uk so st the end for a few pounds more I preferred to go with dell at the end

    Indeed, I’m in the same boat too, I got the 9700k confg so waiting to see some test before mines arrive to decide to keep it o return it instead

    What everyone needs to also know is how fast of a RAM frequency this can handle. I purchased mine with 8 GB 2400 MHz, so I can replace it upon arrival with something faster (and larger).

    Being Z390 chipset, it should support 2666MHz out of the box.

    It sells with a meager 2400 MHz, so how fast can we go?

    Memory Controller marks the limit, but there’s no official documentation of max RAM frequency in the manuals, nor do the chat specialists/tech support say anything other than “the max supported is 2400 MHz”, which I call BS (they just don’t know), because they also told me that the mobo supports RAM overclocking using XMP profiles, so they’re contradicting themselves.

    Anyone with it, please snap some pictures of the BIOS menus with regards to anything RAM related (Voltage? Timings? Frequency?). It would be vastly appreciated by the community (and me!).

    Even better: if you’re replacing your RAM, like I plan to do, how fast is it? And is it working at the intended RAM speed?

    Thanks!

    The 9900k and 9700k will be limited to 119w in combined loads, so both will output about the same heat at the max power draw.
