The king of all gaming CPU today, this beast comes with 4 GHz base clock (similar to Devil's Canyon i7-4790K) and 5 GHz boost clock (all core). This CPU is factory binned counterpart of Intel's own i9-9900K so if you run this CPU with equal base and boost clock(all core 4.7 GHz) this CPU runs cooler than i9-9900K. Unfortunately, this CPU generate a bit more heat and consumes more power than i9-9900K so you'll be going to scavenge beefy cooler and high wattage 80+ Gold PSU if you want to keep safe and not to overheat your own CPU or risks electrical fire. If you're a power user or enthusiast, better go for AMD Ryzen 9 3900X/3950X or AMD Threadripper 1950X/2950X which you can get for either similar or slightly/significantly more prices but nets you more cores, cache and/or memory channels.
