I want to upgrade my CPU from i7 8700k to i9 9900k and 0C . . The TDP of the I9 9900K is 95 W and the TDP of Enermax ETS-T50 AXE is according to the site of Enermax os 230 W but I am not sure .The case support
Radiator SupportFront 2 x 140 or 2 x 120mm
Rear 1 x 120mm
ClearanceGPU Clearance With Radiator: 334mm
GPU Clearance Without Radiator: 364mm
CPU Cooler: 161mm

And of course what I could expect from OC on this z270 MB ? I know the MB is high end and supports i9 9900k OC

If I recall most of what I have seen on 9900k's and overclocking, very few have made it much beyond 5.1 or 5.2 Ghz. The chips themselves have been binned at nearly the top of the hierarchy and can only be sold if they can support the clock speeds and automatic boost to 5Ghz while remaining stable.

I have a 9700k and have had zero reason to overclock it because of how well it performs out of the box. I do like knowing that 'I can' if I want to, but nothing is really driving me to do so.
