My desk is pulled out because I'm currently using the streaming box. I wanted to see how far I could push the 9900k and I pushed a little too far, I'll get it fixed up soon enough.

@ 5.0 on all cores in short controlled tests I didn't break 70ish. Beyond that in step up increments on the 9900k seemed to be a problem. The product seemed to have had a weird threshold range on thermals that didn't scale properly. They (as a production batch) may even have a materials problem so I would hesitate in recommending the 9900k at this time. My impression was that it seemed to run incredibly hot compared to the 8700k with similar adjustments. Understandably, I may even go back to a 8700k on my main.
