If you need a fast PC whose CPU temperature can be kept in check even without water cooling, the Core i7-12700K is a good choice. In multithreading tasks it is on a par with the more expensive but more economical Ryzen 9 5900X, and in office and gaming it is close on the heels of the 12900K.

The Intel Core i7-12700K fits in perfectly with its competitors. If you want a bit more performance, you can get it for more money, apart from gaming.
