The processor itself is fine I guess, but the price is just waaayyy too high. You get the same performance for a lower price if you buy from AMD, or much higher performance for the same price.

Likely better at OCing compared to the normal K variant, but that's all i got...

The iGPU-less variant of i7-9700K. This CPU is priced $30 less than i7-9700K which makes this an option for high refresh rate gamers as this CPU still offers same performance as i7-9700K yet priced lower which leads to better value, higher overclocking potential and probably little bit lower power consumption and thermal generation due to lack of iGPU.
