                It's amazing on how gullible most techies, gamers and hackers have became to pay to weaponize their own homes for their chinese communist handlers to infiltrate and spy using the retarded gullible behaviors of these brainwashed sellout traitors and enemies to their own countries using these devices to also hack many neighborhood homes in its range like any good google chinese owned sellout techie employees, investors and creators.

                    Linus can I buy your i9 9900ks pls, because I can't find a reasonable price or seller anywhere. Amazon is the only safe place and they are all being sold for $800-900 by resellers:( help me somebody pls. Im building my first ultimate gaming pc for Christmas, my wife is letting me. It's going to have an i9 9900ks (hopefully), rtx 2080ti, Msi Godlike motherboard, corsair 32gb of c18 3600mhz rgb ram, 2 TB of Samsung 970 evo plus NV.ME, seasonic gold 850watt psu, corsair crystal 680x white rgb case, white corsair rgb aio, I really would like the i9-9900ks but I might be stuck with am i9 9900k, I'm worried theyll come out with a better i9 with 10 gen desktop right after I buy the 9th gen. I'm also worried theyll come out with the rtx 2080 ti super or rtx 3080ti right after I buy the rtx 2080 ti. Oh well guess I'll see what I'll do.

                        The package max temp is 100C, if you're at 96C (11:42) at 5.2GHz, you're pushing too hard and need to stop, you *definitely* don't need to raise the voltage ffs. Is Linus *TRYING* to fry this CPU?
