Just wondering what you think would be best. 

Folding and gaming at 4k 120hz aint got any gpu now that gonna push that but maybe in two years

 

Both on a NH D15.

 

Really think the 12900k will run ways too hot?

Looking at this article here:

WWW.PCWORLD.COM

Intel achieves a stunning come back for the ages with Alder Lake and the Core i9-12900K.

It would appear that the 12900k does a little better in multi-threaded scenarios, so that'd get my vote.  If its more of a personal opinion, I like the Ryzen CPU's better.  Either should do a really good job, but it does look like the Intel is slightly faster again.

EDIT:
Actually I read the graphs wrong, the 5950x does better but just slightly.  Can't change my vote in the poll now.

Thank you for sharing this review.

Did not read that one.

 

+1 for ryzen

 

I kinda wonder if the 12900ks would be much better.

 

I like the 12900k because it cheaper but i need to spend almost 200-300$ for a cooler while the ryzen can be cooler by a 212 😆

Good point on the 12900KS variants, they should be SP 100+. Meaning they should all be able to hit 5.3GHz all core at <1.45v. I have no idea how well it folds though. I am leaning towards 5950x as well. Purely from a TDP/heat POV.

5.3 would be great but with a 360mm or 420mm aio cooler needed probably.  They can run at 1.45v?  havent overclocked intel since haswell.

 

But that kinda sad these days the higher clock get the lower % of performance you get overclocking.

 

3ghz cpu to 4ghz is like 30%

But 4.8 to 5.3 is like 10%

Overclocking is dead somewhat haha

 

5950x seem like the best bet. I wonder if amd could optimise it further!

Ended up going with a weaker cpu for a better gpu 😅

 

6800xt and 12700k

 

Really wanted pcie 5.0 too

 

 

After looking at benchmark of the i3 12100f 4core 8 thread almost beating a 5600x in gaming i decided to go for the IPC.

Hey, look at it this way.  You were able to get the GPU you wanted in 2022.  +1 for that!  😄 

 

It's still a fast setup regardless of who makes it.  You bought what your budget allowed for, there's absolutely no shame in that.  Honestly, you got a pretty nice rig anyway.  12700k is right up there with the best CPU's for gaming, and even for multitasking.  Really it wasn't a bad tradeoff at all.

Yes kinda got out of my budget but aint gonna upgrade for a long time haha.

6800 was 1400$ 1600$ for the 6800xt

Already had the ram around and was unable to sell it.  So nh d15 and 12700k was the best option for me. Could not really afford going for a 420mm cooler and a 12900k 😆

 

Got all the part home except cooler and motherboard should be here mondays 🥳😁

 

Yea the 12700k is impressive. If the 5900x/5950x had pcie 5.0 i would have gotten that. Integer performance is higher on amd side.
