Would it make sense to jump to a 10900k instead with a chance to get 5.3ghz ish all core? How much advantage at 4k gaming compared to staying with x299 and maybe just dropping in a 10900x?
Maybe I have the upgrade itch since I was disappointed in the x299 CPUs since the 7 series was released...
I've been browsing around and almost all online retailers are out of stock or require special order. Even Amazon and Newegg have been out of stock for a while and only third party price gougers at like $800. There's maybe a couple stores selling it but I still refuse to pay $100 over MSRP...

Now I'm hearing about the 10 core 10900k with boost clock to 5.3ghz. If you could overclock all cores to 5.3ghz then I'll definitely be buying a new motherboard and CPU. All I do is game so maybe the HEDT wasn't the best for me.
Thanks for the input. I'm not going to change motherboards to basically side grade to a 9900k which actually has less pci-e lanes. It would be easiest to pop in a new chip but I guess I'll wait for the next gen. Hopefully that'll be compatible with x299.
I've had the 7820x (@ 4.7ghz) for several years now and was wondering if the 10900x would be worth upgrading to. I'd overclock the 10900x of course (4.9ghz ?)
I recently upgraded to the Asus ROG Strix XG438Q 43" 4K 120Hz monitor and I primarily game on the following types of games using a...
