So, after YEARS of using a 3770k, it dying (or the motherboard, still never knew for sure) downgrading to a 2600k for just as long a time, and a mish mash of random parts thanks to the greatest of people (Muskie32 and notfordman etc.) I finally upgraded! (some sparks flew, smoke grew, it was sad)
 
CPU: i7 9700KF (didn't really care to have the onchip video, probably should  have though?)
 
Same GPU: (r9 290) For now. will upgrade later...
 
Motherboard: MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Plus
 
M.2 Drive: A 256gb Sabrent drive to replace the aging stripe array 120gb SSD's
 
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master MasterLiquid LC240E RGB AIO
 
Case: (because features vs price wasn't worth it to keep mini itx/micro atx) Thermaltake Level 10 Series Level 10 GTS Snow Edition case (it was less than 60 dollars... And i'll probably paint it)
 
Will eventually get a new GPU, Luckily that survived the small fire... Just redid the thermal pads and paste on it...still runs hotter than hell. And I need to replace the aging (and failing) stripe array 750gb WD black drives. Could NOT afford this, but I can't be without my PC love, and Xrayman that sexy mother-- guy. Should have put this to my truck which needs an engine... Priorities right? Pics below.

    A very nice upgrade but I believe this thread needs to be moved to the mods rigs section so I'll move it there.

    Got some nice cable management. Looks like a nice platform upgrade. What kind of RAM are you running? You play around with overclocking at all?

    Since it's now in MOD RIGS, where's that BR?

    Awesome! Now Chrome's just gotta get his MOD RIG 1K eligible. The counter's at 53 rigs left until we get another drawing.

    Well I did a 3d mark 11, P16 254 with AMD Radeon R9 290(1x) and Intel Core i7-9700KF Processor
     
    But i dont' have access to the other tests. The trial of the latest version is supposed to be available in Steam but I can't seem to find that.

    You all ready have the benchmark needed, you just need a few pictures added. I usually just downsize the picture in paint because of the max data requirements... 40% of the original image size is what usually works for me.
     
    3DMark Time Spy is free through steam

     
    Also, other free ones if you are interested:
    Tomb Raider, it has a free benchmark. On the store page it has a demo version that is free and it has a benchmark you can run through the settings page.
    NEON NOIR has a ray tracing benchmark, it's not bad...

    I am humbled by your compliments, oh master of the forums! 
     
    But no, seriously. I love you too X. No matter how much you hate how outspoken I am, or how against the silly rules that rule this land (can't say certain PG-13 things but the company endorses games with blood gore swearing etc) but what matters is... Well you. And all the other mods that have to enforce those rules. I hate you all. I'm kidding!! Geesh. Just Nordicjedi. That guy :D
     
    Besides, some of the nicest people are here. And I could use nice. Because this is a family I can be proud to be a part of.

    I don't remember how to check CPU VTT etc. I know there was a program, but i can't remember it.

    Well, you wouldn't want to install that on your current PC. That's motherboard software specific to EVGA boards. For your board I would suggest MSI's Dragon Center utility

    I have the MSI one but it don't seem to show VTT etc. I'll do some more diggin on it. but the basics of the info is up. I don't see VTT, and core voltages making much of a difference since it's not OC'd

    That EVGA ELEET photo I posted is from 2011. On Z390 it is called VCCSA.
