    Bought this for building my first PC. Compared to the i9-9900K this is the obvious choice. Yes, in 9900K has hyperthreading, but I’ve watched through countless benchmark tests, and there is simply not enough of a performance jump to justify the extra cost (in fact, the 9700K is actually better some games).One word of warning though, if purchasing this CPU, make sure to get a pretty high end air cooler, or better yet, a AIO liquid cooler (I’m using an NZXT Kraken x62, could also use the Corsair AIO). Inititally I bought a budget cooler and the 9700K simply gets way too hot for it to handle. Also recommend pairing it with a higher end z390 motherboard, as this will likely improve the performance over the entry level z390’s, which will struggle to keep cool with this cpu.With good cooling, this CPU is comfortably the best CPU for gaming currently, even though it lacks the hyperthreading of the 9900k, it is cheaper, has almost identical performance and is probably a little cooler thanks to the lack of hyperthreading. Can also OC this CPU if desired and your cooling is capable of handling it.
