    i9-10850k running hot even with 2 CPU and 4 case fans

    Are there any examples where CPUmark scores aren't a good indication of CPU performance? For example, where Processor A has a lower score than Processor B, but is actually faster? I believe this particular benchmark tracks raw CPU power quite well. Regarding the Ryzen, I researched the issue...
