    He is based in the EU however so that's different. I was talking about the dollar price of a 9900ks in the us being offered with a 1 year warranty for $100 extra for a sample that will have been filtered from the best ones and achieves a clock that all chips hit.

    prob getting one and sell 8700k along with eurocom's bios but so far they only support up to the KF cpus. waiting on the bios for 128GB of ram too.

    either go all in or go all new desktop, if eurocom's bios doesn't get out in time for me to grab a good 9900ks then desktop it is. optane dimm!

    not sure about the TB3 disabled, thats what they told me as well which imo is non sense maybe @Prema can share some light. it should just be a microcode update telling the cpu to accept 128GB of ram. they telling me something to do with resources been shared to free up for extra 64GB of ram which doesnt make a lot of sense, the guy i talked to doesnt sound exactly sure either but since I dont need TB3 it wont matter to me.

    that $2k lmao, ebay shows $600-650 so yeah. getting it just for their bios and getting ram else where, same with 9900KS.

    dont get the next clevo bro, slow, hot 10 cores cpu. better wait for icelake or tigerlake arch on 10nm+++ or wait for it backported to 14nm+++.

    theres one on caseking for 5.3ghz for 1.39v but i think its about the same quality as 5.2 at 1.325 on SL. honestly i probably wouldn't go caseking because they also mentioning +/- 30mv which is not as precise as SL's 5.2 samples.

    we'll see though, all up to eurocom if they can get the bios out for 9900ks, if not then going mobile desktop.

    Is that 5.3G with a silver IHS like on the older 8700k they sell?

    no. also forgot to mention that caseking's 5.3 probably already delided with liquid metal because the IHS isn't stock (unless they use old picture) while SL's 5.2ghz isn't delided yet so its still using solder. if SL's sample were to delid + liquid metal it should be superior by a bit which make sense the extra cost as they go by percentage.

    You do get a decent gain from the delid but the power cost for that extra 100MHz does get insane.

    Especially above 5Ghz, the sheer amount of heat becomes ludicrous.
