Coffee Lake refresh and the 9900K/9700K/9600K on the bench

I've had them on the bench for the last week or two, time to break them down with DAWBench.

Hi Pete,

What temps were you seeing with the 9900, and what were you using to cool it?

Scythe Ninja 4 initially and managed 4.7GHz all core on that before it started to tip 80 degrees and I gave up.

The Dark Rock Pro 4 took me to 5GHz and similar max temps, anything over that is going to need a water loop or a jet engine without a doubt.

9900k's perfomance is higher 5-10% than 8700k, but its cost higher 25%. RIP my wallet

Definitely.
That Dark Rock Pro 4 is a bit of a beast though - and a free screwdriver. :bouncy:
