AMD or Intel now? Moving my hackintosh to smaller case

I am running a almost 100% stable hackintosh now in a Ghost S1. But I got a used Skyreach Mini S4 that I am moving to. So I need to step down a bit on CPU and GPU.

My Current setup:

  • Intel i7 8700k, 3.6GHz , overclocked to 4.8Ghz
  • Asrock z390 Phantom Gaming ITX TB
  • 32GHz DDR4, 3200MHz (2x16)
  • Scythe Big Shuriken 2 rev.B (66mm height)
  • Corsair SF600 psu
  • 2 x Noctua NF-A12x15 top fans to pull air out

In the Syreach Mini S4 I don't think it will handle 95W cpu and the cooler is too high. I will be using

The big question I am asking is: Should I go for AMD or Intel?

My choices are:

  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600 (6-core)
  • AMD Ryzen 7 3700x (8-core)
  • Intel i7 10700 2.9GHz (8-core 65w)
  • Intel i5 10400 3.3GHz (6-core 65w)

I have done several hackintoshes, mostly Intel but also a AMD Ryzen 5 3600.

I am also planning of changing my motherboard in the new Skyreach Mini S4 build. I know I can save some money on going AMD. But to be honest I have read so much about compatibility issues on AMD still. Would like some real honest opinions on if I should go Intel 10th gen or AMD!
