    Question Good motherboards for overclocking the i7-9700k?

    I'm looking for some good motherboards particularly in the z390 series. Budget $100-$200 Also could you please tell me why they are good? I never had a 'k' processor so I'm not really sure how motherboards differentiate from each other besides how much ram they can hold and how the bios looks.

    Question i7-9700k vs i9-9900k temperature under the same load?

    Hello! I'm not very knowledgeable about CPUs and have a question. Let's say i7-9700k and i9-9900k were put under the same load (Gaming, Software, etc.). Would the temperature be somewhat the same? Will the i9-9900k get hotter only when pushed even further than an i7-9700k could go? Or does...
