I know I have wrote already regarding this. But today I need to make the decision between of two Cpus because the other parts is ready to build.

My question that is the 10700k is drawing more power (like from the outlet of the wall) than the I9 9900k. ( I have to many thing plugged there already) :)
Is the 10700k generates more heat than the I9 9900k?(I am planning to use Noctua NH-D15 on the 10700K)

Is the 10700k better and trustable than I9 9900k?

I am planning to build my new config for long time. Mostly I use the pc for gaming. The motherboard is going to be MSI Z490 Unify.

Thanks for your replies.

And please for now skip the AMD is better and why not Ryzen conversations. 🤣
 
Looks like an outstanding case for air cooling.
There is plenty of height for a NH-D15 or any other air cooler.
Here is a review:
https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/be-quiet-pure-base-500dx/3
They used a i9-9900K and a noctua NH-U12s cooler with no heat problems.
On your fan setup, I might omit the top 140mm exhaust.
If all of the airflow comes in from one source(front) and is filtered, your parts will stay cleaner.
All of the cooling air that comes in the front will exit somewhere, taking component heat with it.
A single rear exhaust is mainly useful to direct the airflow past the cpu cooler, motherboard and graphics card.
Adding an extra exhaust at the top will sometimes draw in unfiltered air from adjacent openings.
Your psu is outstanding quality and more than sufficient power.

All in all, a very good setup.
Just my opinion, 10700K is the very best.

"Although the i9-9900k isn't supported by your motherboard because it is a different socket."

Yes I got it. I can adjust the motherboard regards I did not buy yet. :)
I mean if it will be more the power the power drawing when gaming. And will be more hot than the 9900k.

Thanks anyway.

Yes it has the potential to draw more power and to be more hot.

The i9 9900k and the i7 10700k are nearly the same, similar to the i5 10600k and the 8700k, or the i3 10320, and the i5 9400f.
But the 10700k is more future proof, because the 9900k is the best that fits in it's socket, but if you have a 10700k, then once it gets old in the next 4-6 years, then you can replace it with a 10900k.

i7 4770k = i7 6700
i5 9400 = i3 10320
i9 9900k = i7 10700k
i7 8700k = i5 10600k
i7 9700 = i9 10850k

A core processor in one generation is usually equivalent to the lower tier processor in the next gen.

Thank You very much for everyone. In this case because it is important for me the heat and the power consumption as well. Looks like I will stick with the 9900k. Btw How is possible that on some of the forums they say the 10700k is cooler on some of they say it is hot? Someone told me due to high tdp the 10700k is cooler which does not make for me logical. Somewhere I read that the 10th gen got thin die stim and thats why it is cooler. Also here on Tomshardware I have read the test about 10700k where has been written that the power consumption almost totally same with 9900k.
So overall now I am confused :D

My sense is that the 10700K is slightly less consumptive of power,
It really depends on the workload.
Here is a review of the 10700K:
https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/intel-core-i7-10700k-cpu-review/2
Really, though, the difference in power consumption is minimal.
Your graphics card will be the biggest consumer of power in a gaming pc.
The processor will hopefully not be running at max power compared to the graphics card.
Game performance is determined by the gpu or cpu, whichever is less capable.

As to future, the Z490 motherboards will permit pcie 4.0 whenever that becomes important for ssd devices or graphics cards. Z490 will also support the upcoming rocket lake processors.

lga1200 CPUs will probably also support DDr5.
 
And do you think the Noctua NH-D15 is going to be enough to cool this beast(10700k)? :):):) Even if later I plan to Oc?



What will be your case?
In a good case, you are good.
The NH-D15 is fully the equivalent of a 240 aio in cooling.
The review I linked had no problem with heat using a 280 aio.
I might suggest that the NH-D15s is a similar cooler that has some compatibility features that may be relevant.
The s will clear ram with tall heat spreaders, and will be 160mm tall vs. The D15 at 165mm.
The s is also slightly offset to clear backplates of graphics cards mounted in the first pcie slot.

The case is going to be Be Quiet Pure base 500dx. Two 14cm Silent Wings3 intake at front, one 14cm Silent Wings 3 exhaust top and same at rear.
If I choose the 10700k the mobo going to be the mentioned Msi Z490 Unify or do you recommend something else brand like Gigabyte?
The rams height I dont think is going to be problem as well due now same cooler and hyperx rams are under. So the ram are going to be these:
32GB 3200MHz DDR4 RAM Kingston HyperX Fury Black CL16 (2x16GB) (HX432C16FB3K2/32)

I forgot to mention the Vga is Msi RTX 2080 TI Gaming X Trio and the PSU is Seasonic 850w Focus Plus Platinum.


So overall,do you think the 10700k is the best choice????

Thanks a lot.
So in this case I leave out the top fan. Anyway that one supposed to be pwm the rests are 3pin. So goes two intake at the front and one exhaust at the back. So It is going to be positive pressure which is good to leave the pc dust free.

That is what I would do first.
You can always experiment with other options if you should have an issue.

Estimable
Two 140mm fans at the front, one 140mm at the back. Two giant NH-D15 fans in the middle. No fans on top. Streamlined effective airflow. You can see the fans I use in my signature.

Max 85C in AIDA64 (extremely intensive AVX CPU test) on 12 cores. Boosting over 4 GHz.
