Now that the 10th gen is out, this is an obsolete review. Go for the 10XXX series. However, at the time I bought this, it was a pretty good deal for a decent CPU. Replaced my 9600K, and I have no regarts. I can say that something was weird for a while after putting this in. I’m not sure if it was the motherboard, or the network card on the motherboard, but I was getting weird errors in chrome, and random tabs just erroring out. I updated the BIOS and put in a 10G NIC, and the problem went away. Going by the errors, I would say the BIOS update fixed it, but as I changed both at the same time, I don’t know. But now I’m left with a nice PC that works well with my RTX 2080 in 4K. I’m happy.
