To keep things as fair and balanced in each review, I keep the ambient temperature at about 21°c, or about 70°f. All benchmarks were done at stock speeds. The exceptions to this were Cinebench R15. Cinebench R15 was tested at stock, and with the CPU overclocked. Although the stock clock for the 99ook is 3.6 GHz, this processor boosts pretty high. Throughout all testing, the I9 9900k used in this review ran at a constant 4.7 GHz and at times, boosted to 4.8 GHz on all cores. All benchmarks, games and utilities, were ran three times each and averaged out the three results. The exception to this was both 3DMARK Firestrike and Time Spy and the read and write speeds on the storage benchmarks. The results for the I7 8700k were tested on the Aorus Z370 Gaming 7 using the same memory and boot drive.
