PCI-E 4.0 can give very noticeable gains in some situations.
What type of situations?

So you'd get 100-200MHz more? Why? 100MHz is less than a 2% gain at above 5GHz. Ryzen would be a better performing chip in most cases, but I struggle to see why you'd want to upgrade from 10900k until DDR5 generation.

Well if you want one and have the disposable income, why not. I don't think any upgrade from a 10900k is sensible until two gens down the road. But hobby purchases aren't always rational.

That level of cooling is not worth it. £1500 is too much money for a CPU that won't be Intel's desktop flagship in a few weeks, even with overkill cooling.

TBH, you are better off with a standard CPU with a low latency memory kit of reasonable speeds. That's the best bang-for-buck ATM. There are other areas of a system that you can invest in.

Yeah I think you have knocked some sense into me. I dont really have the income but I was planning to sell my CPU and the cry cooler and the CPU would just cost me 450ish as I worked him down to £1000. but since mine is above average overclocker apparently I will stick with it even though my SP score is rubbish.

Your SP score is fine, An extra 200MHz will not make any real world difference, Don't let some silly little benchmark program dictate your purchases.

To be fair, if you're the sort of person who considers buying this, it may be worth it to you.

Well I'll be one of those that jumps in here now in this regard. I have been that person many times before and looking back, 9 out 10 times, it was never worth it. It was always "I wanted it", never "I needed" or "I require" it.

I think that IF it would be worth it enough to the OP, they would never have made this thread in the first place. Then you'd know it was worth it. Considering they made an actual thread asking about it, shows rather deep doubts and hence 9 times out of 10, it's not worth it. They know it deep down, just needed this thread and us in order to hit the head on the nail, to make them open their eyes and realize it.

I can absolutely vouch for this on this forum and especially to AlienALX, Dicehunter, AngryGoldfish, Warchild, WYP to name a few previously, I have made so many dumb and spotantious purchases that were completely unnecessary. Even though I did not see it as first, I did after you guys helped me open my eyes and see it.

Our fellow member said it well above:

Yep, I've made some silly purchases in the past that after a few days of owning them I thought "that was definitely not worth it".
