For rendering type workloads it was a really big upgrade over the 2700X, Games too, Although the 9900K does win out at 1080P, Which I play at, Especially when clocked to 5GHz.

I changed from a 8700k to a 2700x when my 8700k died, did notice a difference for streaming and rendering.

I play at 3440 x 1440p though so combined with my 2080ti then it would be a performance bump?

Anything over 1080P is mainly GPU bound so I doubt you'd notice any type of difference but for rendering and streaming it would be quite a large performance bump over your 2700X.

Ive never know anyone who has as many RMA issues as you. Are you buying your hardware from Dodgy Dave down the alley on the corner of BrokenHardware Avenue?

All bought from OCUK, I think the issue with my hardware failures was mainly to do with the last place I lived in which was VERY damp and I only moved to my new place very recently, Only a few weeks before I moved I had to have a dehumidifier on from the time I left for work at 8am until I got back sometimes around 5PM and it would be full to bursting with water, I'm quite sure being in such a damp environment 24/7 had a lot to do with my many hardware failures.

The only thing that's really failed recently was a VRM component on the Crosshair VII Hero but I did buy it when I was still in my last place.

Dice, if you don't have a good UPS, get one. Those things will save your ass, not to mention your gear.

Not particularly, aside from going with an established brand like APC. But I've also used Cyberpower units too. Even a cheap one is better than nothing, especially if you live in a place with flaky power. In my old country house, I used to fry mechanical hard drives with alarming regularity, every 4-6 months. Once I bought a UPS, I didn't have a failure after that. They make a HUGE difference in places where power isn't "smooth".

This is pretty misleading IMO, usually the worst frametimes are entirely CPU limited, even up to 4K. Sure, at 1080p you'll see a larger boost in average FPS but that's irrelevant - the choppiest parts matter most, and those are what you want to eliminate with a beefy CPU.

I think that applies well for a lot of multiplayer games like CSGO, Arma, Destiny, BF, WoW and so on, but not so much for most single player titles.
