  • Wait so how is it pre overclocked that means it’s not overclocked when you buy it? Confusion?

  • Linus wants this vid to look awesome so he does it in his kitchen and not his place😂

  • almost $2400 cad pesos on amazon

  • I just got a pulseway ad featuring linus

  • Intel or bust Linus. AMD wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for Intel letting them cross license x86

    • @Jazabell With the exception of single-core performance for clock speed. Even still, that's not much of a difference.

    • doesnt mean you have to stay with the declining company, intel is pretty garbage when they charge 2x for the same performance and give you a stock cooler that feels weightless and does nothing. theres a reason more gaming laptops aren't using intel nearly as much. there isnt a single redeeming quality with intel cpus anymore

  • What is that reservoir/pump in the digital storm aventum x?

  • this PC looks so gay that I now want to buy a console.

  • Intel forever

  • When intel core I9 is worth more than your pc 😪

  • nat 20

  • Plz make a video on cryptotab browser with this pc.we want to see the speed.

  • mine 9900k runs 5ghz all cores a 1.320v on a nzxt 360mm x72 aio running cinernench at 69c full load i must have a good core

    • And good thermals. Mine runs in the low to mid 90's Celsius when at full load; 4.68 GHz all cores.

  • thanlk you linus

  • 2% for that over priced joy

  • name of song pls???

  • Whats the wattage on this pc

  • Right now they're selling these for 1.5 k$ on ebay because it's the last CPU you can have (>)5 GHz on all cores (unless on ln2). I wish I could buy a used one for the price mentioned in this video.

  • Mine does 5.1 at 1.3v

  • as of right now may of 2020 this cpu has gone up by a rediculs margen on amazon as of now i found this cpu priced at 1.466.95

  • Intel definitely wins in looks. Like on the packaging. Other than that I’m amd through and through

    • The packaging is a PAIN to open. I bought one, and it took me at least five minutes to open.

  • Won't the cooling work better if you close the case?

  • 0:39 lol $999 pentium

  • Rare engram

  • dude are you wearing sandals with socks in your home???

  • i9 9900ks retails at $1,499.99 at amazon lol

  • Anyone know which compression fittings those are?

  • I’m looking to buy a pc and a Monitor the best one there is does anybody have and choices

  • So how did I get 5.2 ghz with a 1.4 volts and doing a stress test for 20 minutes and get 70-73c on aio

    • Was it full-load 100% usage? My 9900K gets into the low- to mid- 90's Celsius at full load.

  • me trying to run a blender render on mi 3rd gen I5 processor Linus showing off to make me frustrated

  • im running a intel xeon e5 1650v2 st 4.56ghz lol

  • Can’t believe Intel pulled an FX 9590 move lmao

  • anyone else think it's not really overclocking if it's already done by the manufacturer?

  • I hate to admit this but i do this LAPPING on my HONDA VTR100F FIRESTORMS paint work sorry but I like to include technology to my hyper speed two wheeled ride you should try Motorcycling mate lol:)

  • 7:28 - "Cooking with Crisco" Get it right. You sound like a damn fool when you say it like that. Almost like saying "screen door on a battleship"

  • you could call it plastic...maybe?

  • I guess linus here forget that amd's 9590 was actually the first factory 5ghz cpu...

  • Death to Intel.

  • UUKK i need gaming pc....😂😂 owning a dual core without gpu which I'd bought way back 2005.. though still going strong with IGI, COD1,2,,,BIA,,MOH,,,🤣🤣

  • Yeah 9900ks $1200 now sooooo, might need to reevaluate the value proposition here.

  • Society if Nvidia make CPU: *Cyber punk 2078*

  • one question can Dark Rock pro 4 cool i9 9900ks 127W?

  • although i get it why you should be angry at intel for being over priced, i don't get. intel overclocks their cpu people get angry and say it sucks too much power amd is better but then that is exactly what amd does for it graphics cards. do you actually think that the navi 5700xt is equally as powerful as the 2070 super. The 2070 super has a tdp of 215W and the 5700xt is 225W and yet the 2070 is more powerful. They say that the navi is more powerful than the 2060 super, just overclock the 2060 super from 175w to 225 and no we will see who is more powerful

  • Paying a premium for a preselected silicon isn't completely crazy at all. If my budget allowed me to look the other way for couple hundred bucks then I would go KS.

  • I used to have a HUUUGE corsair case too. dual 480 rads, 1200w supply.... Now I just have small pc and 1 gpu all aio

  • Give to A/C guy and they will install R32 cooling system in the pc. :P

  • Wow, thats a Forever Case .... I so love it

  • what was that little LED light bar on the motherboard? is that on the board itself or an add on?

  • might be a good idea to update your test game library

  • Hi which motherboard is in the case

  • Nobody: Linus: GLaSwIRE

  • Can the i9 9900ks be used with the asrock a3110 gtx desk mini ?

  • if you guys want to get more fps on csgo you need to do something to the console like fps_max 500 or something like that

  • My palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy, mom's spaghetti.

  • Is this your main pc now?

  • that system is stunning

  • 🙏🙏Please gift me one i want to become a gamer but my laptop speed is not enough

  • I9 9900k is lile 500 the 9900ks is over 1k just for pre overclocked not worth it get the 9900k and overclock it

  • what rtx card?

  • Does anyone know why the hell I cant find the 9900KS anywhere? I've been looking for months...

  • Linus: "it has a TDP of 127 Watts!" *laughs in i7-5820k*

  • Imagine using only ONE core for Crysis.

  • Linus why are you wearing socks and sandals?

  • My i9 9900k will 5Ghz on all cores, say when I use the benchmark or stress test in CPU-Z, and will get 4.8 Ghz on all 8 with Cinebench, not too sure when I am gaming, cuz like I'm playing a game and not watching a fucking benchmark.

  • This new version or normal k and delid ? Wich one is better

  • This kid 💯% worked at a Best buy at some point in his life!😂😂. 💯 has the look and demeanor of a blue shirt wearing BB kid!😂😂

  • Why do i watch this, i don't even have a pc

  • Ever so slightly better contact.Helps very little.I pass

  • New Intel processor security flaw that is IMPOSSIBLE to fix

  • you ever want real hardwood floors let me know. we would integrate Linus tech into it to. just a flight away

  • So it’s $1500 in amazon as of 3/2/20 🤷🏽‍♂️

    • Riiiight!!!! Like WTF? Why the hell is it so expensive. I've been looking for months...and its always expensive AF! Retail price is like $550. Can anyone explain this? Is there a shortage?

  • I have a 9900k that can make it to 5.1 ghz with just an H100i

  • General Kenobi

  • *stares at my 7700k/GTX 1080 build* ... You still matter to me, buddy.

  • What case is being used here and where can I find it?

  • So did I win this PC......?

  • One rtx 2080ti is enough, but 2?? That's almost 3,000 dollars just for the graphics card!

  • This system is insane

  • Plz give it to me. 😫😫😫😫😭😩 . . . . . . . Well thanks!!

  • do a video on the 10th gen i9

  • 7:19 when the smart kid asks a question when he knows the answer to it.
