Hello,

I’m looking into building a desktop, and I’m unsure what CPU to go with. I’ve got two processors in mind, the Intel Core i9-10900K and the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X. The processor will be paired with DDR4 3600MHz memory and an RTX 3080. PC will be used primarily gaming, and I’m looking to just beef it out. The hardware I listed should last for at least 4-5 years, right?

Thanks,
Matthew.

Nothing "wrong" with the 11700K, but you may as well get the newest generation CPU if it fits your budget.
Okay, I will look into the 12700K. Will the Kraken X63 be able to efficiently cool these processors? I know they draw high TDP and run hot if not cooled properly.
