Epic build Shark! I love your commitment and determination.

Thanks, but I have no other choice... I spent 10K+$ for it and I must finish this build! I want to have the biggest custom designed watercooled PC with Intel HEDT LGA2066 @ 5Ghz HT 24/7

Some words about 5+ghz:
I can use my i9 9900X at 5.0Ghz/1.275V and 5.1Ghz/1.335V at 24/7!!!
Also can use 5.2Ghz/1.3V but only for benchemarks (not 24/7 stable)
HT is useless) Its my opinion!

Impressive. What are your temps under load?

Games: 55-65
Video render in 4K: 65-70
Prime95: 80-85

- - - Auto-Merged Double Post - - -

Because its useless even for render in 8K and of course for 4K.
And for games too)
But the heat with HT is awfull! I can do 5.0 HT and have 95C with it... WTF ?!

HT only for benchmarks)

Go Blue!
Is that with AVX & AVX2? Those are the ones that hammered my 8700K into submission during handbrake.

Mr.Shark, Sir, I am mildly confused about ht being useless when rendering video. In my thorough studies, I had on average of 30% ins cease in rendering speeds when using ht. To me, that meant 3.6ghz HT on, was faster than 4ghz HT off. Please explain how you cannot reap the benefits from using such feature.

In regards to gaming while ht enabled, it might be a hit and a miss, depending on certain titles, hence I cn understand your wish to keep it disabled, but perhaps discrediting completely HT as a useless gimmick seems a bit unjustifiable:shrug: please do not take it as a negative comment, but rather as an observation on my part.

Your system looks excellent.(mouse too).

You didnt undferstand me correctly. HT is not completely useless. If your CPU is under load of 100% - then HT is have to be. But if you have 5Ghz on your 9900X - you dont need it because even in 8K render you cpu is under 70-75% load. Not even 90% !
But HT did HOT temperatures when you have 4600+ Mhz (espesiacly at 4.8+). And I prefer 5Ghz HT Off than 4.8Ghz HT On. Because of equaly temperature... But +200Mhz did their business always, but HT...
