A 9700k is a way better investment over the 9900k. You can hit 5ghz pretty easy. I recommend this.

Agreed, the 9700K is a great CPU especially for the price point.... and now that Intel has released the 9900KS, we know that they are actively binning their i9s... which means the 9900K becomes even less attractive because it will be the crappiest of the silicon since they're reserving all the best silicon for the 9900KS SKU.

FYI this is the 9700KF -- also just as great a CPU with same 5ghz OC potential, but no built-in display adapter. Then again, if you're overclocking to 5ghz, you've probably got a discrete GPU in the desktop anyway ;-)

I don't really understand the point of these "F" series CPU's. They generally seem to be more expensive than the non-F models that include graphics, yet these cost more.

This is exactly what some of the guys on Reddit are talking about. Since Intel is Binning the 8 core with integrated Graphics silicon. The kf model of both the 9900 and 9700 are attractive choices since they aren't getting picked over. At this price point the 9700 KF is a pretty good value play. I just stumbled across it because my 8700K died the other day and needed a replacement. Called Intel to warranty and they said they didn't have any. Sending me a check for full purchase price. That part was a little bizarre.

Dude did you even look at the price? How is 319 more expensive ? If you can find a K model for less than that please post it

This is a one-off good deal, but comparing the 9700 vs 9700F or 9400 vs 9400F, the prices are usually the same. Just don't see the point of the F series in most cases.

There didn't used to be one. It was kind of like what is Intel thinking? Now if they continue with offering some kind of discount to entice people it all of a sudden makes sense. They have to be feeling the AMD Heat and that's how we get companies to give us better values. Competition

I wouldn't i7 10700k is 8 core 16 threads coming Q1 2020 Price will be in same range as 9700K to compete with AMD. the i9 10900k is 10 core 20 threads.

This whole scheme of intel to take the threads out of the cores is ridiculous and nothing but a money grab. They've been offering hyper-threading since their P4's... all except bottom tier CPU's came with that feature. Now that AMD is back in the game, they revamped their marketing to try to gouge consumers' wallets for something that has mediocre performance at best. I won't play their game.

It still beats the hell out of a 3700 X gaming and it's cheaper. I think some of you guys are going to be pissed off no matter what happens

Slickdeals has literally been terrible all year for finding good deals on computer parts because the downvote party starts every time a good deal shows up. what should be happening is things get uploaded if they are at the bottom end of pricing or drop to new lows. What happens is people throw a fit because it's more money than they have and don't think it's a good enough value. it makes the site unusable for us looking for deals because they don't get any traction unless it's a $100 part that the 7-Eleven workers can afford. it's just as bad with video cards

Dreaming. Maybe you mean same price as 9900KS IF intel just fully doesn't care anymore.
