so who has stock i want to go get a 8700k today in qld
Looks like most places I can see this morning are only on pre-order.
and so say we all
8700K strix z370 ITX or 7800X asrock x299 itx
both 6c/12t, both similiar pricing, guess with the x299 could always get a beefier cpu.
Same thing I’m reading, more marginal then anything, with the 8400 trading blows with it on every gaming benchmark
Ordered 8400 and Strixx ITX
Who has the strix already? Bob you could have got one for me too ....
Should we order in bulk for the forums to get a discount?
Will wait for Case gear to get it... Has MSI shown off their ITX board yet?
Edit: Yes, https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/Z370I-GAMING-PRO-CARBON-AC/Overview
Newegg has stock $280 posted
I doubt Aus will get ITX stock within the next 2 weeks that why i went to newegg
Do you reckon the 8400 will BCLK overclock? Bobster do let us know please.
to get an 8400 today with a board, and then upgrade to a 8700K later? or just wait.
god dam these itches!
I hear it should be able to do 4Ghz on all core and some BCLK OC but BIOS atm is the limiting factor
8400 will go in a HTPC/lan box when H370 ITX boards are out. Then I will get a 8700K will go in the Strixx
Im still undecided, as i really want to play with the X299 ASrock ITX, i have never really cared for the mainstream platform (sure i love to play with it, but not attached to it like i am X series)
Im thining of putting my 7900X into the asrock ITX board, and getting a 7980XE for the Rig one in my sig.
and selling the 7700K and APEX and buying a 8700K and Z370 APEX for sig 2
pretty much only thing stopping me is the wife. She is happy if i spend thousands on her or the kids, not so much on PC's!
From what I'm reading the 8400 is the sweetspot. I definitely think so, and while waiting for the 8600K which I think is a better choice than the 8700K, I think it's a solid option. I'm gonna do what Bob did and get the 8400 with the Strix ITX board, run it on air with my GPU on water while i wait for more cash to watercool then will upgrade to an unlocked chip with the CPU watercooling gear.
$269 for a 6c/6t is pretty sweet.
I paid $255 each for the 3 7350ks i bought and binned. and they were 2c/4t
Yeah man, 7350k was trash, just got rid of mine.
At the same time though, there is the option of i3 8350K vs i5 8400.
Now it's 4c/4t it's much more competitive.
So do you have save $10, have some overclocking fun but lose out on 2 cores, or spend it, have cores and hope you can run it at turbo 24/7 to match the i3 base clock?
Just got to work and read through the last few pages.
Apologies for the mix up. Wasn't trying to be misleading what-so-ever (what would I gain by that?)
We made the call to list after other retailers listed early. By that point I had already well gone home and I don't often check the rep account while I'm not in the office.
Looking through the orders we received I would say 90% of them are OCAU customers. Sorry if anyone feels they missed out from the info I provided, but our hand was somewhat forced in this instance.
All good, im patient, been a customer since August 2007.
All i ask for is dibs on a 8700K when they next come in (be nice if its October 2017 haha)
First Order August 07 - this, lol, what a lil nerd gamer i was
So pretty much exactly what I said happened then xD I think some people don't realise SCORPTEC is made up of more than 1 person... Thanks for the post
Judging by the gaming benchmarks I’m guessing at least 2 if not 4 of those 6 cores on 8400 turbo to 4Ghz to get those scores. No way it’s one core for sure.
8400 is the next bang for buck gaming cpu now no question.
My 1800x seems competitive with 8700k in many scenarios tho apart from single thread
