    I assume this is okay since they aren't a competitor.

    Caseking is now offering Prebinned 9900ks:

    Advanced edition
    Prices in Euros

    5.1GHz = 929.90
    5.0GHz = 849.90
    4.9GHz = 799.90
    4.8GHz = 779.90

    Looks like these are delidded and have the STIM replaced with Liquid Metal.

    My tray one does 5.1GHz anyway. You'll probably find Case Kings 5.1 bin will do 5.2 under 1.4v, too. I think Roman alludes to this in his video anyway.

    Has anyone received a 9900k that wont do 5/5.1GHz all core?

    I assume the cost here is related to the time it takes to do the delidding, but i can't see why they would offer anything lower than 5.1 all core.

    Because not all chips will do 5/5.1ghz all core? not all silicon is equal my friend.

    Surely you are better off playing the silicon lottery rather than buying a binned chip which is guaranteed to do less than 5 GHz?

    I assume they bin before doing the delid. In which case I am dubious of the quality of the process. Are they making them worse?

    Caseking should be made to stop this selling practice. Its just shocking how much barefaced milking goes on these days

    Those who don't like it just won't buy. The new CPUs are already overpriced as it is.

    I'm happy to wait for proper increases that should be worth the money, like Ice Lake which should be DDR5 ready.

    I understand the silicon lottery, but i thought they were binning before delid. This would mean all their delids should be 5GHz at least i should think.
    I can't see any reason for them to be delidding a chip that will only do 4.8GHz. Where is the demand?

    I havent heard from anyone that hasn't managed to do 5GHz all cores yet either, so the 4.8GHz offering is a strange one.

    Guys yet again people got no clue about Binned CPU's..
    Let me explain.
    Those are Maximum stress for 12-24 hours stable.
    The pathetic review Overclocks are NOT stable... Try rendering Video project that takes over 24 hours and have a bsod 18 hours in....~

    You pay extra for assurance that at 5.0 or 5.1 those will NEVER EVER CRASH no matter what You will use them for.

    The 4.8 will be lowest clocking ones. But they kinda cant sell USED cpu as NEW can they ??
    Would You like to receive Used/binned reject cpu when paying for new ?

    Well in that case, all those above binned CPUS should do there overclock and also DO max out AVX as well
    i would be curious if they would pass a 24 hour AVX stress test. hence makes your point null in void....

    If ya looking at this thinking wow thats a silly idea then its probably not aimed at you. There are people out there who prefer binned CPUs probably to save the hassel of trying to find a good chip them selves.

    They DO pass 24h AVX test. At lest my 2700x from silicone lottery does, Tested at Binned Settings aka 4.2 on all cores with 1.425vcore did 20 hours prime and 10 hours AVX IBT MAX crash free.I paid 100 pounds over OCUK boxed price aka 30% more for that very reason.
    Just finished 37 hour rendering project from Halloween Rave. Now need ot upload 60 gigs to Youtube haha.

    Have You actually read how procedure for Binned CPU's look ??
