    [SOLVED] i7 9700F?

    With Zen 2 launch around the corner, Will we ever get to touch the i7 9700F? I see the i5 9400F as a real value for money processor from the Blue team. Or will they just skip it and go for the next gen in 2020?

    Just looking for some suggestions for my motherboard, similar to the "Gigabyte GA-Z270X-Ultra Gaming". A small surge fried the connector to the PSU.
