Buying Guide For The Best Cpu Cooler For I9 9900k

  1. The Performance

The Intel Core i9 9900K is a high-end desktop (HEDT) microprocessor that can be used in many typical applications, such as content creation, 3D rendering and video editing. It has 8 cores and 16 threads, with a base frequency of 3.6 GHz, a maximum turbo frequency of 4.5 GHz and an Intel Smart Cache of 12MB. The processor is based on the Coffee Lake architecture, which was previously used in the 8th generation Core processors (codenamed Kaby Lake Refresh). It has a TDP rating of 95W and supports six channels DDR4-2666 memory at speeds ranging from 2666 MHz to 3466 MHz. In addition to the standard function units for integer calculations, floating point arithmetic and SIMD vector operations, the integrated graphics unit supports DirectX 12 with hardware tessellation support. For multi-threading workloads in games or other intensive applications, there are two CCXs: one for four threads and one for eight threads along with two CCXs for four threads each in combination with HyperThreading. The processor does not support overclocking or any other form of manual overclocking beyond what Intel’s Turbo Boost technology can offer automatically by increasing frequencies when thermal conditions allow it.

  1. Thermal Design Power (TDP)

The TDP rating indicates the maximum amount of power that can be dissipated by the processor while operating under normal conditions (at 25 °C ambient temperature). It is abbreviated as “TDP”. The TDP rating is a factor of the processor’s maximum clock frequency, thermal design power (TDP), package size and heat dissipation capabilities. In general, the higher the TDP rating, the more heat will be generated by the processor at full load.

  1. Package Size

The package size refers to the physical space occupied by a processor within its socket. A processor with a larger package size will require more physical space for cooling and mounting hardware on motherboards. For example, a large SFF (Small Form Factor) motherboard may have room for only one processor socket, while a mini-ITX motherboard can accommodate two or three sockets. Some processors are sold in small packages that occupy little space: They are often called “SBC” processors in reference to their small-sized cases that house them. They are typically used in systems with limited space for expansion cards such as network adapters and storage devices and also in embedded systems where compactness is essential or where many such small packages can be placed on a single printed circuit board (PCB).

  1. Heat Dissipation Capability

The thermal design power (TDP) rating indicates how much heat can be dissipated by the processor when it operates under normal conditions (at 25 °C ambient temperature). In general, the lower this number denotes better cooling performance; however some processors have higher TDP ratings than others because they have more heat dissipation capabilities. For example, the Intel Core i5-2400S has a TDP rating of 91 W, while the Intel Core i5-3470T has a TDP rating of 91 W.
