    Question Should i purchase an i7 8700K or an i7 9700K?

    I'm currently looking to build a new pc. But i'm not sure which cpu i should buy. I'm more gaming oriented, and i'm looking for the best performance. At the moment the 9700K is cheaper, for me.

    Question CPU Temp with AIO

    So i have a i7-8700k not overclocked and my temps are usually 45-65c while gaming. its being cooled by a kraken x62 and it just seems kinda high for being water cooled or am i just being paranoid lol. I know those temps are fine but i figured it would be lower around 20-40c while gaming.
