haha, yes! He'll just have to make due with that, right?P.S. My youngest son has a 9900K, which is basically a halo chip for his Z390 motherboard, and thank goodness for that; I'm tired of installing CPUs!
I received a 8700k here over the weekend which my son is getting. He has a b365 board which won't really let this CPU breathe with more than 2666mhz ram and probably has weaker power delivery systems, but is it worth all the hassle? I keep telling my self no. He has a mATX case and z370/Z390 boards in mATX are worth a *mint* right now on eBay. So I'd have to trade the case out and now we are replacing the CPU, board and case? WHAT AM I EVEN CONSIDERING?!? ha.
So I think I'll just install the CPU. Poor dude.
