    Guys i will be buying my first pc with this processor!!!! Can't wait to boot it up

  4. Sam Jones says:

    Isn't 'PRE-OVERCLOCKED' just…… clocked?

  5. With the increasingly aggressive turboboosts, or any turboboost for that matter, I consider all modern Intel CPUs to already be overclocked from the factory. They might not call it that, but practically, that's what it is. And AMD does the same of course.

    Thats cool and all, but can it play minecraft?

  8. Just the I9 9900k at 5gig runs everything I want or need from intensive rendering graphics programs to high end games no problem. So far 150-180 degrees max on peak's…

  9. Linus, Question for you, with all your logo's on the PC, Do you get to keep it ?, maybe YES :), it's a well made PC for sure :), Engineers dream PC 🙂

  10. I don't have anywhere near the money to buy this lol

  11. Dreyden says:

    so what can you do with that type of pc?

  12. L0L247 says:

    They build nice computers, but are way too expensive.

  13. Sona Ghadia says:

    Intel inside kidney outside

  14. Anyone still watching in 2020?

  15. Joseph Burke says:

    Let's overclock the pre-overclocked CPU until all the magic smoke leaks out.

  16. Bb Somalinga says:

    AMD: We're fast and give good price to performance ratio.
    Intel: Let's just make a pre-overclocked CPU with 5Ghz Boost Clockspeed and 4.5Ghz Base clock, speeeeeddddddd.

  17. And i got an i9 9900k to 5.1 ghz for 500 dollars, and less than 90 degrees

  18. Aba Abe says:

    8:58 Hey linus lets play apex XD

  19. So does that mean that CPU has no warranty?

  20. My 9900ks runs @ 5,1GHZ on a gigabyte z390master G2. v-core 1,29 in bios with LLC on High! aida stresstest cache,cpu,fpu temps stay under 80 celsius! with corsair 150i pro rgb with coolermaster fans instead of the corsair fans

    now THATS what I call a super computer.

    Head of Intel: "Some software runs faster on an Intel because some greedy people were offered cash to write their software with the Intel compiler, the one that secretly detects who's processor it is first before deciding if top speed is needed. The benefit is that people can put food on the table.

    I thought it was illegal to avoid tax and bride people to only use your products. So, pay tax, be honest about how much tax we've actually paid, don't bribe anyone and stop slapping a new number on the same processors every time a tiny competitor launches a new processor. Got it. Thanks for the advice. Why oh why didn't anyone tell me this years ago?

    There has been a tiny whisper that someone was waving big college-student checks near the Dell, Hewlett Packard, Acer, Lenovo dinner tables if they correctly predicted which trucks will be delivering the wrong processors to their factories.

    Incidentally, the people around Germany got to see college students Media Markt (Europe's biggest computer seller) take part in the daytime television game show "Guess the Truck".

    A strong slow aroma drifted over the fence from a neighbour's barbeque that if Intel eliminated their competition then only the LATEST Intel SSD would work with the newest processors but it was just smokey sausages.

    Luckily, security cameras caught the university professors Userbenchmark and PassMark putting their greedy hands into the padlocked Intel cookie jar again. I don't feel safe at all any more. But, don't worry, the police will be onto them reeeal quick.

    This is a private message for our fanboys ONLY: maybe, just maybe, there's a teeny tiny bit of truth to the idea that someone else might make faster processors?

    Ouch! Get off my leg. You're not my pet. How do you get rid of this thing?

    I also have a famous mega family but right now I think I need to visit some of my rich uncles, uncle Googie and uncle Amazy, to pass on some of these new tips so that they don't get into trouble with the law.

    And by the way uncle Amazy is the one who sells all our processors out of his garage, along with several fridge magnets. At least, that's what he told me.

    He says that the garage is where he keeps his 1535 cars but as none of them have worked for the last 14 years he's been getting rides from auntie Ubee's cars. I really think it's time she starts paying tax too.

    Oh and you can keep your money too. We don't need any more of it, thank you very much."

    I like how overclocking an i5 9600k gets you 5.1ghz at £150

  25. John Smith says:

    a whopping "127 watts" so 250 watts?

  26. Jm Cariaga says:

    Thats the good no not good the perfect pre-build

  27. Wait why it so hot with water cooling
