    The question was if Dell offered upgrade path within the same generation or not. As you can see from the link, this depends on the luck of draw, or better say it doesn't.

    I expect that the no upgrade paths within same gen hardware as showed above also will be used aginst them under the trial if the Class Action Investigation become reality.

    Dell hate upgrade paths bro Fire. Doesn't fits their philosophy or image. Regardless if its their notebook or their gaming desktops.

    Good point bro, I was looking at it from the wrong angle. Definitely agree, steer clear of the KS.

    Who cares that it is not supported by the junk software from Dell? KS Works great and overclocking available via TS:)

    The cooling system cannot cool 5.0+ GHz on all cores and threads (I'm not very lucky in the silicone lottery). I'm fine with 4.7 (-140mV) and 89 °C in stress testing (OCCT).
    9900K with such settings could not even exceed 4.4-4.5 (100+ °C):(.
    I don't want to use liquid metal after it destroyed my 17R4 heatsink.

    I understand it will run cooler with underclocking and maxed undervolt. This is normal. But saying KS works great and that you can overclock it with TS isn't correct. You simply can't utilize the performance from KS due the reduced power limit (power cap) for this unsupported chips in bios. You can't even run it with stock clocks regardless if you had thermal headroom or not. Dell easily killed that option with their upgradeability practice.

    According to Dell support, everything above 3.6 GHz is already overclocking :D
    But you are right, even with a modified cooling system I will not be able to overclock it higher than 4.7-4.9.
    In other matters, this is no longer important because overclocking won't save him from turning into trash after the release of the mobile 3080

    The support service in the countries of the ex-USSR ;) 99°C on CPU at default settings it's normal you don't need to replace heatsink
