Assume all other things equal (mobo costs are ballpark similar) and with the 5600X having stock issues, is the case for the 10700KF particularly strong?

What say you?

One thing that's not going to be equal is the cooling required. 10700KF is going to demand more expensive/exotic cooling, especially if overclocking is involved.

Ehh, not really. I wouldn't miss it.
In a nutshell: The 10700s are 9900s with more conservative power limits and slightly higher base and turbo frequencies.

But do they represent better price/performance than 5600X at £30 cheaper.
Assume cooler is Corsair H115i.
