  • Excellent performance. Doesn't get hot in gaming.
  • The heatsink while massive, is gorgeous and unbelievably quiet.

Intel Core i7-9700K Desktop Processor
  • I installed this on the Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Pro because it has good VRMs and supports up to 5.0GHz overclocking.
  • Really great CPU. This chip overclocked pretty easily.
  • Perfect CPU for gaming and multitasking.
  • Overclocking is fine, and temps are great with the h100i pro.
