So I recently upgraded PC for my cousin's daughter

Current spec for that computer is:
8700K @ 4.8GHz
Corsair H115i
ASUS Strix Z370-ITX
EVGA 2080Ti with Alphacool Eiswofl 2 AIO
Corsair 32GB DRAM @ 3200MHz
ADATA SX8200 1TB
ADATA SU800 2TB

I mean the performance at her current level is pretty good with very low noise. Default Port Royal is over 10k already

So this girl just messaged me saying she saw the 9900K on sale at microcenter for $299.99. She is wondering whether that would be considered a good upgrade for her

Her major use case for is Twitch streaming, video editing and music production. I mean it is quite cheap for a drop in replacement.

What do you guys think? Worth it r nah?

Hmm, well it really depends on how much she misses the extra cores. Because really the performance bump is gonna be negligible except in cases where those two core and accompanying threads come into play.

I would say for streaming, yes it may be worth it just to have some extra cores as it will make a difference. Otherwise, everything else should be pretty much the same.

All this speed is beyond my comprehension.

I guess it worth it for me 9900k often sell at jack up prices. Grab the micro center deal and sell of the 8700k. Your total upgrade would be much lower. I don't think you can get any better price than that.

Yeah she mainly stream MMORPG, and now Minecraft RTX.

Major concern is on a ITX 370 board it wont hold at least 4.8GHz speed now.

I would not be worried about that, the board lists it as supported and the VRM seems well built on this one. I would recommend a VRM fan like I did on my system if you are worried. They are pretty cheap and easy to install.

Hi,
Yeah those 9900k's are dropping like a rock
Might as well go for it soldered chip.

Just watched a video of Jayz test a RTX 3080 with a 10900k, and with the founders 3080 he said he got 11450 points, so her Pc is no slouch with the 10k result. What I'm trying to say is it's an upgrade but not a noticeable upgrade.

HI,
Think a soldered chip has a way better chance of maintaining 4.8 and or going beyond that than a 8700k with either pigeon poop or delid inside which it sounds like a virgin 8700k not delid yet if it can only do 4.8 on an aio.

It’s almost a pointless upgrade, although there might be some increase in streaming ability while playing. However...I’ve seen many 9900k’s selling around the $300 mark. Over the last month used 8700k’s have sold in the range of $215 to $275. This means it’s a no-brainer financially. She might as well do it.

Edit: Basically it will cost her $25.

Intel 9900k is soldered one and excellent for games. If she has one PC for games and streaming then yes. If she play games mostly at 1080p then yes. For video encoding (stream) in this case use NVENC, not CPU.

I went from an 8700K@4.8GHz to a 9900K@5.0GHz to a 10850K@5.2GHz. I didn't notice any improvements in gaming.

I don't think the 9900K would make a noticeable difference, but I think I'd still do it. Simply because, once you sell the 87000K the upgrade is so cheap, you might as well do it and have a PC that will last that much longer.

For video encoding (stream) in this case use NVENC, not CPU.
This is what I was going to say too.

The only way I would make a move like this is if I was planning to stream and game on the same computer, and also using CPU x264 encoding rather than nvenc. Nvenc is a good way to get away with being able to do it all, but it isn't as efficient as CPU encoding in terms of quality/bitrate.

However, realtime CPU encoding at even 1080p60 is very intense. My 2600k can't do it, even when I'm not running a game on my PC (streaming from PS2 or something). So I don't know if even a 9900k can stream and game at the same time. Probably needs at least a 12 core Ryzen, maybe even 16 core.

Both 8700K and 9900K should be able to handle software encoding.
I ran a few tests on my 3900X, and on the most demanding preset OBS offers (slower), it only managed to load my 3900X up to about 30%. At veryfast, it went down to 13%. (done at the default 2500 Kbps; not sure how relevant/realistic this is as I do not stream, just occasionally record some footage and upload it later on, and then I just manually re-encode it with Handbrake.)

I don't see any definitive reason to upgrade. However, I think it's good to get cheap parts that can be replaced so that her activities will not stop.

Preset is an important piece of the puzzle, but it's only one piece. You paint an incomplete picture. What resolution and frame rate was this at? 2500kbps isn't very much, maybe enough for low detail games (like PS1 games) at 720p30.

1080p30 I believe? (could be 60)
I mean, I am not aware of any streaming service that supports anything above 60, and I believe most are capped at 30 unless you buy a subscription or something.

However, unless you're really bandwidth-constrained, using NVenc is probably a better idea anyways.

Anybody can stream at least 720p60 on Twitch, I do and I'm not even affiliated. If I don't stream 60fps, everything looks choppy as hell, even though I'm primarily streaming PS1 games. Must have something to do with my capture card.

I didn't know the title gamer. It may be a good option for delivering heavy games. Not required for light game delivery. NVENC uses a chip mounted exclusively for distribution. I think it's a good mechanism to distribute the load. However, even if the load is distributed, heat will be generated. In other words, there are two heat sources. The 2080ti has a lot of VRAM, but it also increases the load on the VRAM. In the case of simple water cooling, VRAM and the motherboard are not exposed to the wind and are likely to cause malfunctions, so I think it is good to strengthen the parts from the viewpoint of load distribution. When using 9900k for 2080ti, pay attention to the GPU utilization. We recommend that you use about 80% GPU usage during game distribution. The trick is to use it moderately even if you strengthen the parts. Delivery is often unstable because Nvidia's products are unstable at 100% operation. I think you should limit it a little.

And she went in and got it.

She installed her first CPU ( put it in the socket) and I did some quick testing and benchmarking for her. She tried out her streaming. Since it is using only 2080Ti's encoder there was not much to be gained. However, she wanted to stream Minecraft RTX which will put very heavy load on GPU, she is thinking of going CPU encoding for that to maintain a good FPS.

Old versus new

New CPU put in. Long finernails definitely have an edge in handling CPU

IMG_3088.JPG




Testing system powering on



IMG_3093.JPG



Did a few quick OC, it runs all core 5GHz with about 1.295 VCore. Did not OC RAM or Cache. Don't need crushing in streaming.

Temperature is way better versus 8700K. Now under full system load it draws about 520Watt. CPU temp never goes over 75C for any of the core. For comparison 8700K at 5GHz would spike near 95C from time to time using the same AIO.

Nice!

For that price worth it just for the temps alone. I have mine at 5.1Ghz delidded and was debating on this upgrade as well, but don't really stream or anything so doesn't seem worth it. Also I'm not sure that loop setup can be considered an AIO :p. Nice with the split liquid on CPU/GPU in an ITX case. How are the temps on the 2080ti?

Nice!

For that price worth it just for the temps alone. I have mine at 5.1Ghz delidded and was debating on this upgrade as well, but don't really stream or anything so doesn't seem worth it. Also I'm not sure that loop setup can be considered an AIO :p. Nice with the split liquid on CPU/GPU in an ITX case. How are the temps on the 2080ti?

2080Ti uses the Eiswolf 2 AIO. Pump speed is set default max which is about 2400RPM. The fans are controlled through MB fan header with fan speed from 1400RPM (silent mode) to 2200RPM (when MoBo is above 50C)

In the Port Royal torture test GPU temp is about 65C max with GPU core speed around 2025MHz consistant and +780MHz on the VRAM. Manta airflow sucks so would be better if this is in a better airflow case.

wow 522W are a big number, hardly unexpected.
I was wondering if the motherboard VRMs were able to keep up with the CPU, but the answer seems to be YES.
Do you have thermal reads about VRM under load ? Are you monitoring that ?
