So I’m considering getting a overclocking CPU next year or so for my MSI MEG Z390 ACE mobo.
I’m struggling whether to get the i7-9700K or the i9-9900K. I heard that i7-9700K makes games run faster and i9 has good hyperthreading. One part of me tells me the i7 and the other part of me the i9. Which one should I go for?

P.S. I have a Corsair H100i RGB Platinum AIO. My case cannot fit a 360mm or 280mm aio. I also don’t know if the full-loaded i9 can survive well with the cooler that I have.
 
Which exact motherboard? All low end and many mid range Z390’s are not suitable for a 9900k even though they claim to support it. Generally a 240mm AIO is not considered strong enough for a 9900k but if you don’t plan on overclocking it will probably work.
