-Outstanding gaming performance.
-Just about the fastest single threaded performance you can get.
-Over-clocks fairly well w/o deliding. (A good quality cooler is a must).
-6 cores/12 threads is no slouch for content creators & productivity either.
-Will be a viable CPU for many years to come.
-Difficult to acquire.
-A little pricey due to scarcity. (I paid $419 which I think is reasonable).
-Non-soldered integrated heat-sink…they used thermal paste instead so depending on your situation it can run warm.
-To really push the limits of over-clocking, deliding is recommended, along with water cooling.
I bought this CPU in order to finally make a leap up from my trusty i5 2500k Sandybridge that I’d been using since 2011. I have zero regrets. This thing is super fast. DO NOT buy from greedy scalpers. Just be patient and diligent and you can snag one for a reasonable price.
i7 8700k (Mild OC @ 4.8Ghz w/ 1.24 Vcore)
Arctic Freezer 240 AIO water cooler
MSI Z370 Gaming Pro Carbon
16Gb DDR4 3200 Corsair Vengeance RGB
Samsung 960 Evo M.2 250gb
Powercolor Vega 56 (Do not overpay for these either. At $450 or less, there is no better value, especially for free-sync).
EVGA SuperNOVA 750 Gold 80+
Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Full Tower (Fantastic, roomy case)
“New Pixio” 27″ 1440p 144Hz Free-sync IPS panel monitor (Sexy monitor and perfect companion for Vega 56/64).

It took a while to get the CPU after I bought it but it finally arrived. Patience paid off, I am one very happy customer.
i7-8700k @ 5.0GHz – 4133 DDR4 RAM RGB TridentZ Ram w/ Aorus Gaming 7
All I had to do was go into BIOS and enable 5.0GHz mode and enable Memory XMP and I was setup within minutes, I couldn’t believe it.
Performance in games:
Don’t expect to get 20-30+ FPS increases in all games
Overwatch I bumped up 25-35FPS I run 1440p 150% Render Resolution at Max at a constant 144fps
Destiny 2 bumped up 5-10 frames in some areas and 20 fps other areas, definitely could notice and tell the difference between CPUs
Another important thing, I can finally watch things on my 2nd monitor (netflix, cabletv, etc.) without visible gaming performance impact. I can have something in the background playing while gaming that alone was well worth it for me.
I highly suggest making the jump if you dont have the 7700k

Intel uses cheap thermal paste between the CPU die and heatsink which makes this CPU to run hot.
Had to delid it for my mini itx build as it didn’t have enough room for a big cooler.
Overclocks to 4.7 off the bat.
Can reach 5.0 with my motherboard 5.0ghz OC profile.
