    It seems I can't squeeze a decent cinebench score out of the 9700k. It doesn't thermal throttle at 4800mhz but the power limit dumps performance. 1233 multi threaded score on r15.

    so should I save the 9900k for my desktop and throw my 8700k in there?

    I'm actually going to buy a 9900k and try it out. I think it would play well with hyper threading. The cpu is more than enough for any gaming load which is why they power limited it. It just sucks that it can't stretch it's legs. I think the 8700k is most likely the sweet spot for this laptop but the RTX 2080 sings at 1080p 144hz.

    Hang in there. I hope it ends up being worth the wait.

    It seems to me that the 9900k has trouble stretching its legs on my desktop (z370 board) between heat and drawing a crap-ton of power at 5ghz

    What is your Watt consumption in HWinfo? A recent screenshot showed 136W, which is more than enough to score more than that

    Have you updated to the latest BIOS?

    Have you tried any voltage tuning?

    I have not updated to the latest bios. I'm unsure as to my power draw. I have undervolted by -.1mv it is at 4.8ghz 1.3v. Ive been at work and trying it out when i get home ill tinker more. I'm weary about a bios update. Is it good so far?
