Just finished watching a video review of the same CPU and the reviewer managed to get his 9900K to a stable 5.1Ghz at a lower voltage than a 9900KS; he added that his could've been a 'bad sample' and that many have already got 9900K's to 5Ghz, all cores already, so the silicon lottery is still a sizeable factor.
This CPU is for those that don't overclock. You don't buy highend Cpu expecting to get stacks of extra performance from an OC you buy it to benefit from its out of the box performance, plug and play.
Exactly - he pretty much said get a 9900K, overclock it and save the price difference.
I saw another video and they mentioned that the 9900KS only had a 12month warranty.... I couldn't see mention of that in this article though - can you advise if it is (or shoot me down in flames if I've just read past it)?
Scan's showing a 36-month RTB warranty, but OCUK's showing a one-year warranty. (Scan's £50 cheaper, too...)
It is very common for products to have a short warranty in countries with poor consumer protection laws (America, China etc), in the EU however that is completely irrelevant as the shop that sells it is required to help you for 2 years.
