    Would a big AirCooler, like a Noctua nh-d15 be comfortable for one of these?

    Usually though most can't overclock it more than 20% increase in performance. You need like nitrogen cooled processor to run 50% speed increase.

    soo close to buying a 3900x from my i7-700k for a pc that is used only for gaming....
    But the intel i9 900K versions are still the best buy for a gaming pc?............. what a gamble...

    Linus can I buy your i9 9900ks pls, because I can't find a reasonable price or seller anywhere. Amazon is the only safe place and they are all being sold for $800-900 by resellers:( help me somebody pls. Im building my first ultimate gaming pc for Christmas, my wife is letting me. It's going to have an i9 9900ks (hopefully), rtx 2080ti, Msi Godlike motherboard, corsair 32gb of c18 3600mhz rgb ram, 2 TB of Samsung 970 evo plus NV.ME, seasonic gold 850watt psu, corsair crystal 680x white rgb case, white corsair rgb aio, I really would like the i9-9900ks but I might be stuck with am i9 9900k, I'm worried theyll come out with a better i9 with 10 gen desktop right after I buy the 9th gen. I'm also worried theyll come out with the rtx 2080 ti super or rtx 3080ti right after I buy the rtx 2080 ti. Oh well guess I'll see what I'll do.

    The package max temp is 100C, if you're at 96C (11:42) at 5.2GHz, you're pushing too hard and need to stop, you *definitely* don't need to raise the voltage ffs. Is Linus *TRYING* to fry this CPU?

    I'm a little confused... Isn't overclocking by definition pushing the clock speed past factory specifications? "Pre-Overclocking" is just raising the factory specifications, is it not?
