Same, 9900 is absolutely fantastic for now. I can't imagine replacing it in the next 5 years unless some massive leap happens.
9900/9th Gen IMO is the real peak of Skylake. That is the 'most' the architecture can realistically be pushed to.
10th Gen is a literal meltdown waiting to happen, with its power draw and heat... ugh. 10th Gen is the definition of 'oh fuck we honestly have nothing, quick just bolt 2 cores on and add 100mhz!' in the face of the new Ryzens.
They shouldn't sell these CPUs in places with hot summers. Bad idea, trust me.
There's a damn good reason closed loop watercooling is fast becoming a standard. Air cooling really isn't cutting it anymore.
