9900KS Worth it?
 
Heya guys,


So I watched this video below today and it really caught my eye and interest...

I am currently running an 3700X an since watching the video, I'm quite really considering the 9900KS. Mostly because of the thermal part of the video, the fact that the 9900KS ran 15,5 degrees cooler than the 9900K and only slightly above 1 volt.

I have used Intel for the past years and I am a bit more comfortable with their BIOS etc, than I am with AMD and Ryzen. And looking at my current 3700X in HWMonitor, the VCore is at an average 1,4-1,450V. Which is very high.

I've unfortunately read online that AMD hasn't quite dealt with the high voltages in their AGESA updates yet, hence the overall high voltages.

I am also soon going either the Dan A4 SFX or NCASE M1 route, and again after watching the video and the thermal difference, especially considering voltages etc, I am considering getting an 9900KS. Especially since I already have an ASUS ROG Z390-I Strix motherboard.

So what do you guys think about all of this? Am I entirely crazy thinking here or is there something to my thinking?... Please keeping in mind that I am not that into the whole voltages, AGESA/BIOS revisions etc. My biggest concern is thermal and keeping it as cool as possible, due to the compact chassis of my choosing.

Thanks everyone,

You are not crazy at all. 9900KS is a beast of a CPU. And if you are doing pretty much anything except encoding/rendering it beats 3900X. 3700X it beats in everything full stop. For even better thermals i would recommend delidding and direct mount. You can drop another 5-10 degrees C depending on your settings. With it being binned you have a lot of room to tweak it.

Also to quote Jensen on this "It just works." AMD again made a mess with BIOS. They are worse than Gigabyte on that topic.

You can do naked mounting on this CPU? I thought that wasnt possible since the devils canyon days because the PCB was thinner.

or are we talking delid, change tim and reseat IHS?

You have direct die frame form Caseking

Also there is few kits form Rockit Cool

You just delid it, remove Indium as much as you can, and then use Quicksilver Solder removal kit. Polish it and it mount pretty much any cooler that you want without IHS.

nice. I do like that. I miss my old naked ivy days. had a massive 18C drop on that.

Why not try the 3700X system in the case first? If the thermals aren't to your liking at that point then switch to the Z390 board with a 9900KS?
