    No, let me rephrase
    It's as good as the 270.
    That's it.

    The better z370 is the z390 and 4+ months later
    That kinda sucks, if true.

    It's still a 270 but lame to re-brand it and just sell it like that.

    Lot of possible fakes in the last week, nothing solid.

    I put an i5-4590 (??)K into a Silverstone Sugo SG13 (from a Sugo SG08) and I was very surrpised to see some serious heat problems until UNDERCLOCKING, despite using one of the best low profile coolers I could find.

    I'm a big ITX advocate, but I'm wondering if things as small as that aren't just gonna burn you? (literally / figuratively)


    EDIT: either way, if I go CFL- my next 'high end' machine will still be ITX but it'll be the SG08, not the SG13, I love the 13 but just too crispy for a semi-beef PC.

    I might replace the SG08 power supply with a smaller SF style one though (?) i'm thinking the space reduction might be nice / more airflow.

    I've built a few Silverstone ITX systems...love the SG08 and ML08...but I want to go smaller. Love the idea of an S4 mini hanging off a Vesa mount arm hovering next to my monitor.

    Plenty of examples out there of 7700K + GTX1080minis working well in the NFC S4 Mini.

    If this upcoming 8700K is a definitely a 95w CPU should be fine too.

    **It may even be 80w looking at recent leaks** https://www.techpowerup.com/235429/reported-intel-i7-8700k-coffee-lake-6-core-lineup-leaked

    That 80w sounds fake to me.

    No wonder 10nm isn't coming to S series with clocks that high on 14++!

    Supposed to be released at Gamescom next month..


    I've been watching the various threads and new platforms with interest. I think for now, the 8700K is the answer for me. 6 Cores on my existing rig, if they update BIOS. How easy is that?

    If they are allowed to update the BIOS to suit, and they do so for my board, I think this is the direction I will go.

    I'll check out other stuff in another year or so I think.

    I always thought, exact same price as 7700k.
    Love to see it less, think that's super unlikely.

    From the article.

    However, I wonder how different it really is. I remember a long time ago running an LGA771 Xeon in a LGA775 slot using a mod. I wonder if they have just moved the pins around (on purpose, to make people buy a new platform) and you can just make a mod for 1151 V1 -> 1151 V2?

    Classic Intel, time to buy another motherboard for the next CPU.
