Recently Switched from the Ryzen 7 2700x to the Intel i9 9900k. The 9900k absolutely destroys anything thrown at it. Huge increases in FPS in games like GTA-V, Ghost Recon Wildlands, Assassins Creed Odyssey. Even tho the 9900k is a very expensive CPU, especially comparing to Ryzen CPU's, I think it was well worth it for me. Very good performance in 1440p all while running game boost through BOIS (around 4.8-5GHZ), and having pretty cool temps for the circumstances. 40-45 degrees C while gaming. While the NZXT Kraken X62 is a good cooler so far, it is a little harder to cable manage the wire harness that comes off the pump block (my rad fans block my top pathway in my case to hide the wires). Cable management in the Ethoo Pro was not too bad to do. However, there is not as much room on the back side as some other cases around the same price.
