    from completed build Quiet White

    Works great. A little hot even with water cooling, but that might be because of the case.

    from completed build Wastelander - Mini ITX Powerhouse

    Like this a lot. Came from a 4790k but this overclocks higher than that did.

    Really strong CPU, never found wanting across pretty much all games. Recommended, especially if the i9-9900K is out of reach.

    from completed build The Aquarium PC

    Runs cool with my 360 mm AIO, but that's because it's a 360 mm AIO. That aside it's a very fast processor that will be more than enough for most people. Don't let the lack of hyperthreading scare you off either, in real use, it doesn't make a massive difference. My chip can handle 5GHz nicely and I've definitely enjoyed it so far.

    Knocks any taste a throw at it out of the park. I have yet to overclock it, but it idles at 27 degrees and maxes at 69 degrees in an ITX case with a Kraken X52 / beQuiet! fans on radiator.

    from completed build Black Ice

    For high frame rate 1440p and (some 4k) gaming it pretty much came down to this or the 9900k, Since I will be gaming more than anything else the performance gains of the 9900k wasn't worth the extra cost. So far I haven't been even remotely disappointed, it should be able hold its own for the next 5+ years no problem.

    from completed build Compy 2.0 - RGB

    Amazing performance. 8 cores and 8 threads make it best suited to pure gaming.

    from completed build Darkheart - 1st build in 9 years

    Not much to say here. It's an Intel i7. I hope to OC it at some point, but haven't as of yet. I didn't enjoy my one experience with the original AMD Athlon, so I've stuck with Intel since. I've never used an after market cooler before, so installing the Dark Rock will be a new experience for me.

    from completed build Carryable Mini-ITX PC.

    Stable. I was really going to buy an i9 -9900 k. However, I realized that I am a general consumer and not a professional. I came to myself and decided to buy an i5-9600 K with sufficient performance. But I noticed something. I bought a water cooler two months before I bought a CPU. So I chose the i7-9700 K, which has a meaning in water cooling.
