    Thanks all for the info.
    I ended up ordering a CPU which I completely forgot about ... the 9900 (non K)!
    8700k/9700k both are 95W CPU, however 9900 non K is a 65W CPU with all core ratio of 4.6 Ghz. So in theory it should be cooler or same but in performance it easily beats both.

    Intel should just make high end K series processors with a .999 silver IHS. Silver is not that crazy expensive. And we’d be able to really get our monies worth. These processors are like $$$$ super expensive. What’s another $25 in silver cost per cpu. They could just add that to the msrp. Or add $100 to the MSRP. They’d be the only company selling a stamped piece of silver for 4 times what it is worth lol

    That 65W TDP rating is at its base frequency of 3.1GHz. ;)

    You underestimate how cheap Intel is. That is why they stopped including stock CPU coolers with unlocked processors since Skylake, and stopped using solder until Coffee Lake refresh.

    9900 will be fine. Still a beast. You know you can sell your 8700K as defective on eBay for quite a bit. Just a heads up. I’m honestly shocked sometimes seeing the prices that bad components fetch on eBay.

    I saw a dead 2080Ti sell for $450.

    broken modern i7’s usually pull $100+ or sometimes more.

    Testing and reliability, how does the silver IHS adhere to the solder? Would it need a gold layer or something else? Does it cause cracking? That's the sort if question that needs a lot if testing and validation before Intel could put out a product for a niche that likely wont see a cost to performance benefit compared to that cost going into something else.

    Well that sucks, then the 9900 is just a 9900K with locked multiplier and temps/voltage is not better.

    has anyone tried a 9900KS ?

    According to this test results:

    It costs more however it is a much more efficient chip and runs about 15C cooler than the 9900K with the same settings.

    Maybe this is the 8 core intel chip we have been waiting for to use in a Clevo laptop? 80C instead of 95C to me worth the extra money ...

    You're gonna need some Prema magic for the KS not to throttle into the abyss in the Clevo.

    Not if I underclock it
    ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    An underclocked 9900KS to 4.6 Ghz still easily beats a 9700K or 8700K .
    Not very cost effective I dont doubt that but performance wise seems like the best option...

    When I buy a (8) core cpu to replace my 8086K. It will be a 9900KS.

    Silicon lottery sells them for cheap and just have them delid it for you.
