  1. The 7700 has the higher clock speed and is what to buy if it's in your budget.

  3. Do you already have a somewhat recent intel build? If you already have say a haswell i5 or i7 then no it is absolutely not worth it in my opinion. If you are starting a new build or upgrading from a much older system then yes kaby lake is a decent choice, though it doesn't perfom any better than skylake at the same clocks.

  4. According to the benchmarks I've seen, its a great cpu. It does run HOT though, so i'd be prepared to spend some money on an adequate cpu cooler to dissipate heat. Especially if you are going to overclock. A cooler master hyper 212 evo simply won't be enough.

    Hes not overclocking without the k CPU and a Z board.

    Get the 7700 with a H270 board if you dont like the stock cooler the Cryorig M9i will work just fine.

    No i'd absolutely go with the 7700k and z270 chipset. The H7 is a create cpu cooler for your build. Do you need assistance verifying if the cpu cooler fits?

    If you not a Overclocker , you should go for sure Intel i7 7700 (which comes with a Stock Cooler)

    if you just a Non-Overclocker Gamer you should just go for the Intel i5 7600 too.

  11. From what I've read the heat issue on the 7700k can be resolved by setting the IGP voltage to zero in the BIOS. You do however need a MB that has such a setting.

  13. It is poor advice to tell people that you should ONLY pair a 7700K up with a Z-mobo and if you have an H-mobo, then you should go with a 7700 non-K. If the 7700K and 7700 were the same stock speed, then that would be good advice. However, the 7700K at stock speeds is still way faster than the 7700 for only a little more money. So yes, a 7700K would work very well on an H-mobo, and it will be faster than a 7700.

    With that being said, most people who buy a K-CPU are doing so in order to overclock it further than its stock speeds and that requires a Z-mobo.

  14. In case you've not made your purchase yet OP, or for anyone else wanting to know what's a good, reasonably priced chip for 1151, there''s news coming out now about the Aug launch of Coffee Lake 6 core chips, and it's looking very good.

    The surprising details are low prices, Z100 and Z200 series backward compatibility, and very high turbo speeds. We're literally talking chips that turbo only 100-200MHz less than the 7700k and 7600k, but on ALL 6 cores!

    i5-8600k, expected price of $250, 6 cores, 3.5GHz base clock, 4.1GHz turbo (on 6 cores).

    Source: http://wccftech.com/intel-coffee-lake-core-i7-8700k-core-i5-8600k-6-core-cpu-leak/

    I'm no doubt going to buy the i7-8700k, which has a 3.7 base clock and turbos to 4.3GHz on 6 cores.

  15. Interesting, a release in august. It's almost like intel is playing "catch up" with AMD. I wonder if they'll release an optimized I7-10000 series in Q1 of 2018.

    Catch up, not on performance they aren't. They're still ahead there. They're just making it clear they can offer a wide range of multi core chips too, some of which will no doubt compete well on price too.

    That said, I think Intel went overboard offering most of their new lineup as enthusiast X model chips, whereas before, that was always the smaller niche. It doesn't really matter that they dropped their 8 core from $1000 to $600, when you can get a Ryzen X1800 for only $420, especailly when they're forcing restrictions on it requiring only their brand SSD.

    Nope, I'd much rather suffice with a 6 core that I can get at a decent price with good base and turbo speeds, but I'm not going to kid myself with a Ryzen when in reality you really need expensive RAM and MB, just to hit a 4GHz ceiling and only come close to an Intel in performance.
