Interesting review, thanks Kyle!
Will be very interesting to know this. Funny seeing nearly no OC left on both teams at this level.
There is OC left with the Intels and you can get a 4.5Ghz on all cores with the 7980XE or go per core and adjust. You NEED to delid and void warranty though and need Liquid Metal (not paste) or get rid of the IHS completely + very good custom watercooling.
The 9980XE seems to be worse temp wise compared to a delided 7980XE so the so called "solder" is only good enough for the stock clock increases. And yet, deliding the 9980XE is riskier than the previous SKUs.
It looks like I am staying with the 7940X (no point getting a new SKU at a loss) and will upgrade again once PCI-E 4/5.0 , DDR5 + Ice Lake is out.
