too many assumptions your making of me here kid lol .. just becuase I don't know much about RAM, doesn't mean I can't build my own PC. I replaced my whole PSU / Motherboard and almost every component you can think of. So, yes 100% when it's time to upgrade, I'll be doing it all myself ... I'm just not with the custom water cooling for other reasons, and I can't get to OC the 13900KS, simply I won't, but I'll still have the latest peice of tech on the market, and I'll keep upgrading to the latest as needed!
OMG seriously ? Really, I really don't see why you guys have the impression that I can't swap and troubleshoot parts correctly!
Are you still here to ask for "system builders' advice", or......? Because it seems like you've been pretty dead set on just about every part selection since page 1 and oddly defensive over every piece of advice.
If you're still at the step of being scared about water leaking and have to ask "how hard is changing my coolant" then custom water is probably not for you. Generally when someone wants to get into custom loops they take a lot of time debating and planning their layout and part selection, and when it comes to putting things together things don't always go according to plan.
No one's stopping you from getting a prebuilt loop from a system integrator, but loops require at least a fluid change every year (for general good practice). If you're just gonna leave it as is, you'll find out pretty quickly that custom loops are not a one-time purchase but an ongoing commitment.
It's the same deal with the 13900KS - no one's stopping you, but if you have zero preexisting knowledge of how core and mem OCing on LGA1700, you really are neither the 13900KS' target audience nor are you poised to take advantage of what it offers. Safe to say 13900K offers you everything you want for less.
