    Strangely enough I often see in some game tests the 9900K falling slightly behind the 9700K and 8700K at the same clocks. It seems Hyper-Threading actually hurts the 9900K in some games.

    yep but thats nothing new :) gamers have been disabling HT since the pre-haswell days to get higher fps in certain games. cant beat the 9900k in productivity and efficiency though!

    The thing is that if it were just a general HT issue, the 8700K would lose performance as well in those games, but it doesn’t. Only the 9900K runs worse.

    After a day and half playing with it here goes a little feedback:

    I did buy the LCD from Obsidian-PC: AUO B173HAN03.1 (144hz LCD with g-sync).

    The LCD with the latest drivers wasn't detecting that it had g-sync with the 6700k and the 1.06.12 BIOS from Clevo (g-sync wasn't working at all, didnt matter how many drivers i tried).

    With the OP's BIOS, g-sync is working with said LCD at 144Hz and its a total beauty so i made 2 upgrades in one lol.

    anyway here go some benchmarks i made so far:

    CPU-Z validation:

    Cinebench r20:

    Firestrike Extreme:

    Let me know if you want another benchmark being done :)

    All tests were done with the following settings in Throttlestop:

    Something is wrong with the performance. Re-run benchmarks but with stock clocks. Add in Cinebench R15 (click Show more versions) and 3Dmark Firestrike.

    Well now I rebooted it and the computer doesn't start at all for some reason. Power button gets light and Powers off right away. Tried to reset CMOS and nothing. On monday I'm headed to obsidian to reflash the BIOS because I don't have a spi programmer

    Yeah I did try that and the power blinks, and turns off after 2 seconds. I contacted @John@OBSIDIAN-PC and on monday I'll get to the store to reflash the BIOS. might as well buy a spi programmer and learn how to flash it on my own next time lol

    The thing goes like: press power, button of power lights up, keyboard too and goes off after 3 or 4 seconds. CMOS reset doesn't work and fn+d+power neither and fn+b+power (bios blind flash/recovery) doesnt work either
