Ryzen 7 1700X or i5-7600k for gaming?
Which processor would be better for gaming and over clocking? I would be using a Geforce 1060 6gb graphic card with it, just want to know which processor would be better, thanks.

The 7600K would be faster in most games I think. I found this comparison video of a few games.

But rather than buy the 7600K now, I would wait for Coffee Lake supposedly to be released early October.

Oh yeah right, I just looked the 3440 lol... but then again... 3440x1440 isnt really 4k or 2k, its in a between with a sorta 21:9 ratio, regardless, its still a lot of stuff to render...

and at such resolution with everything ultra-ed up... to me, 60 min to 80 max sounds about right... but lets see if someone else thinks differently.

Should I upgrade from a i5-7600k?
I have a i5-7600k, gtx 1070 and 16 gb of ram, should I upgrade to something else for my cpu? It's been going at 100% in most my games while my gpu is at 70ish, I even overcoclocked it by 0.8 ghz.

i5 7600k Temperature Question?
Overclocking my new build which has an i5 7600k. At the point of posting this I have managed 4.8GHz @ 1.2v with no issues. The temps at this point have reached a max of 63c. I have searched the interwebs pretty far and have seen that a good point would be 70c, so I'm assuming I'm able to raise the clock a good amount more. Is 70c what I should be going for?

I5 7600 or I5 7600k
Currently in my system I have a G4560 and an Asus Prime B250m-A motherboard with 8GB 2400Mhz Ram. I was wondering, since my motherboard I believe doesnt support overclocking, which of the two processors, 7600 and 7600k, I should get as my upgrade. I never planned to overclock anyways. (Building a separate ryzen system I am going to overclock). The price difference where I am is minimal between the two and in stats it seems the 7600k would be the better coice overclocking or not (Difference in £10/) What are your thoughts?
Greatly appreciate any feedback thanks.

I5-7600k vs i7-6700k
So I'm trying to decide which cpu i should get for vr and gaming. I want to get the i5 7600k bc it's cheaper but I've heard that it bottlenecks the gpu I have (gtx 1070) and that creates stutters so the alternative i was looking at is the i7 6700k which is better I know but it's alot more money than I want to spend. Is the rumors true/ is the bottleneck that noticeable especially since I'm going to be playing in 2k in a month or 2 or should I get the 6700k?

Which motherboard for a i5-7600k (to o.c)?
Hi! I'm planning on building a new pc and I have already decided to buy the cpu (i5-7600k) and the gpu (geforce gtx 1060 6gb), and I dont know yet which ram I'm going to buy, but i want 2x8 ddr4 and 2133 Mhz or more. My question is, which motherboard fits me the best? I want to overclock both the cpu and the ram, and im not planning on having 2 gpu's.

Intel Core i5 7600K "bent pins"???
Bear with me a minute...
I'm having issues with a Device Manager malfunction of "KabyLake PCI Express Root Port #10 - A2B1".
Device Manager reports: "Device status: This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31) The specified request is not a valid operation for the target device."

My MSI motherboard support's (their Z270 SLI PLUS) suggestion is to: "check and make sure there is no bent pin inside the cpu socket" My build uses an Intel Core i5 7600K @ 3.80GHz. As I recall during installation, I'd need a microscope to see any "bent pins".

What on earth is MSI support expecting me to see if I disassemble my CPU and "inspect" it? I think I'd have better luck getting Congress to pass tax reform...

Update: OK. So your responses convinced me this is easier than mitigating Congress...

i5 7600k overclocking
I have an i5 7600k and was wondering how far it is worth pushing my CPU.

I am able to hit 5 ghz comfortably, I used a dark rock pro 4 for cooling and it keeps it under 75 degrees with my current profile (I like to keep things as quiet as possible).

However it does hover around 50 degrees at idle beaches the fans spin so slow due to my profile.

This I think is too high to keep when idling when I like to take care of my components.

So to keep everything very cool and quiet at all times I might have to reduce to 4.5 GHz

Should I notice much of an impact on gaming or everyday computing use? Or should I just man up and take a noisier rig?

The rest of my components are:

Gtx 1070ti (custom Arctic acellero cooler)

MSI z270 tomahawk
16gb ram at 2400
Fractal design meshify c
2 are 120mm fans on front
1 rear and 1 top noctua 120mm pwm airflow fans.
I like to have my intakes as low as possible rpms cause the nzxt are fans make quite the racket.

i5-7600k vs i7-6700 for gaming/streaming?
So I am putting together a part list for my first ever PC build and I am trying to keep the budget low, currently it is at 5 with the i5-7600k @ 3.8 GHz and an EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 2GB ACX 2.0. I should mention I do intend to overclock as it allegedly can hit 4.2 GHz.

Previously I had the i7-6700 @ 3.4 GHz (not 'k') in the build, and with a cheaper motherboard, was able to keep the build around 0. The budget is the biggest factor for me, as I will need to also purchase windows and a monitor.

I hope to play current games like Overwatch and reasonable settings at or above 60 fps. Potentially I may stream on twitch as well.

My question is as follows: Is there a significant difference between the two processors selected, and if so which would be preferable for my purposes. Or is there another that would be better (keep in mind budget - cannot be too much more expensive!).

Thanks in advance!

i5 7600K vs i7 7700
Kind of an odd question but I have found no answers to it. Should I go with an i5 7600K and overclock it with an air cooler to most likely upwards of 4.5 Ghz, or should I go with an i7 7700 at stock, but use the hyperthreading. I'm planning on using it for games as well as everyday tasks like school work, and I don't know if the extra threads will help at all versus the faster clock speed. Thanks!

i5 6600k vs. i5 7600k overclockability
I know the 6600k and the 7600k are about the same in performance clock-for-clock. I don't care that the 7600k comes at a higher stock clock.

The 7600k has poor quality TIM (just like the i7 7700k), and I've seen articles / videos where delidding and putting the Coollaboratory Liquid Pro decreased temps by 10-20 °C, which is significant.

My two questions are as follows:
1. Does the 6600k have the same poor quality TIM as the 7600k?
2. On average, do the 7600k's achieve a higher OC than the 6600k's? (Without delidding either one)

I've looked around, but couldn't find hard data on my above questions. Feel free to answer one or both questions. Based on what I've seen, I'd expect around a 4.8 - 4.9 GHz OC on them with the NH-D15.

Failed overclock i5 7600k

I'm a beginner at overclocking. I wanted to try on my i5 7600k and Gigabyte z27OP-D3. I have changed frequency to 4.8ghz with vcore set to 1.285 and uncore set to 4.5ghz (whatever that is). I followed an oc guide from Gigabyte. Ram is at xmp. I changed nothing else like turbo, c-states etc.

On restart my computer froze the first second with a white marker to the upper left. After that it rebooted and I got into bios again because of failed boot.

What do you think I should try next? Increase voltage?

Ryzen 1600x or I5 7600k
Hi all,

I have a gtx 1060 6gb.
I am going to buy a new CPU and I am confused between the 1600x and the 7600k.
I am gaming and going to record videos for my youtube channel, The 7600k has better frame rates in gaming but they say the 1600x is better for recording because it has more cores. And people say that there are screen recorders that use the GPU not the CPU so i have a few questions.

1- If i am going to use a gpu recorder is the 7600k is going to be better for me?

2- What would be better a Ryzen and a cpu screen recorder or an I5 and a gpu screen recorder?

3- Is it true that the 1600x will be better than the 7600k in future gaming?

4- Are 8GB of ram going to be enough or i will need 16GB of ram?

Asus Rog z270e motherboard
Corsair h100i cpu cooler
Fsp hyperk 500w

I can normally hit about 200fps on csgo but when i try to stream the game or record it, it comes out laggy and has a bad quality. So i was wondering if my cpu is not capable of recording/streaming or am i doing the recording/streaming wrong (i recorded at 720p 60fps)

Intel i5-7600k Idle at 55-60c?
Hey, I built this PC around august 2017 and have had usual idle temps of 35-45c but after a recent update my cpu temps have been idling at 55-60c. Ive read this is what people are suppose to get under load so im worried somethings going pretty wrong here.

When running games before this update like witcher 3, Ark and No Mans Sky temps would usually reach around low to mid 70s.

Question/problem with new i5 7600k
Hi all.

I recently upgraded my pc's MB, CPU, RAM and GPU. One of the reasons I upgraded is my old system was about 4 years old and was struggling with newer games and frames dropping below what I wanted. My older CPU, i5 3570k, was also suffering the same problem which is partly why I upgraded.
All is fine except for I am unsure if my new CPU is functioning correctly. I'm not super savvy with some of the tech things so please bare with me.
When I run games such as Witcher 3, Counterstrike Global Offensive, H1Z1: Kotk my CPU will sit at 95%+ capacity and more often 99%. I don't suffer any noticeable drop in frames or stuttering.
I have run a CPU test and received 8872 CPU mark. Which seems relatively normal, a little below average for the model.
What I want to know firstly is whether it is normal for the CPU to max out like that when playing games and if not does anyone have any ideas to improve it.

GA-Z270-Gaming K3 motherboard
i5-7600k CPU
GTX 1080 G1 Gaming 8GB
Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x16GB RAM

Any further questions or details needed please say so!

Thanks for your time!

Please help! i5 7600k Unstable after GPU Upgrade
Hey everyone! So I'm running into an issue that is beyond my expertise and can't seem to find an answer online. I've been running my i5 7600k for quite some time now with a stable 5ghz 1.350v overclock with no issues until recently. I did numerous stress tests and hours of gaming with no problems whatsoever. Yesterday I went out and bought a Evga Gtx 1080 upgrading from my old Gtx 1050ti and suddenly I'm getting a BSOD shortly after starting a gaming session. Am i correct in assuming that the added power consumption of the 1080 made my CPU overclock unstable? I backed the overclock down to 4.8ghz @ 1.300v and seem to have no issues. I was hoping that i could sustain that 5ghz overclock but really don't want to push past the 1.350v i was running it at. I can totally live with the 4.8ghz overclock if having a 1080 means i need to push more voltage to sustain the 5ghz overclock. Just trying to understand how all this works and if my thoughts are correct on whats going on. Here's a quick snapshot of my system specs. (i know my PSU isn't the greatest)

i5 7600k OC'd to 5.0ghz @ 3.50v
MSI Gaming M5 Z270 Mobo
EVGA 1080 Stock speeds
16gb Corsair vengeance 2400mghz (stock speeds and timings)
Corsair H100i AOI

i5 7600k vs i7 7700k in adobe premiere
Hello to everyone.
I have a small problem i don't really understand.
I broke my i5 7600k upon delidding, and bought a i7 7700k, cause why not. With the i5 i could edit in premiere smoothly but with the i7 its so laggy. I get red frames (not visible on exported video) if i pause the video while editing, audio gets out of sink.
Didn't change anything in adobe btw.

some specs: i5 was clocked to 4.9
i7 is clocked to 4.4 cause of cooling
GPU gtx 1060 6gb oc ( in game clocks to 1995 Mhz)

any ideas?

Also paired with an EVGA GTX 1060 if it matters. I'm just wondering if anyone else has seen temps like this with a similar setup? I was thinking these temps might be a little high considering the aio.. but maybe not, so that's why I'm asking.

i5 7600k or Ryzen 5 1600(x)?
I'm building a new PC and initially I had gone with the i5 7600k, but now I'm wondering if the Ryzen 5 1600 (or 1600x) would be better.

I'm not interested in benchmarks or overclocking, I don't do much in the way of 'multitasking' - at most I'll be running a game, firefox and maybe a music player simultaneously. I won't be doing much more than casual gaming (at high settings in 1080p and hopefully high FPS) and just general PC use.

In terms of actual, practical perfomance for my situation - Is it worth going for the Ryzen 5, or should I just stick with the 7600k?

(also, would an AMD graphics card work better with an AMD CPU, or no difference?)

Hello everyone, I'm thinking of upgrading my pc since it just can't handle 1440p at 75hz anymore, I currently have a Gtx 1070, a oc'Ed i5-7600k to 4.6ghz, and 16 gb of ram, if I upgraded to a gtx 1080 (Gpu prices are almost normal now) would my current cpu bottleneck it? I was thinking of upgrading my cpu to a i5-8600k or me gpu to a gtx 1080 but it seems like a gpu would give me a bigger boost in performance, right? I always play at 1440p and try to get my settings as high as possible.
Thank you.

i5 7600k Overclocking Questions
I've been looking into overclocking my Cpu and I have come across some questions that I can't find definitive answers to on Google. Little background on my system first:
Cpu: i5 7600k
Mobo: Msi Z270 Sli plus
Current cooler: hyper 212 Evo, but I'll be putting a DH-15 on this afternoon.

I am shooting for 4.5 - 4.6 GHz, is that gain worth it over the 4.2GHz boost clock that the 7600k achieves? I mostly play Wow and Overwatch with a 144Hz 1080p monitor, so rather cpu bound games. But is a 400MHz overclock even worth the hassle?

If so, what is the best vcore method to use? Some people swear by the manual method, but that forces constant voltage even when idle. So is adaptive the best? Also when using adaptive vcore, is Llc required?

Last night I decided to push the core multiplier up to 4.5ghz just to see if the hyper 212 could handle it. I set the vcore to adaptive and put the max at 1.15volts. I then did a simple 5 min stress test in XTU. CPU-z said that the vcore was 1.16v or so and the system passed. But when I ran the XTU benchmark, vcore went up to 1.20v. Is that a side effect of adaptive vcore, or is that LLC coming into play?

i5 7600k
I've got an i5 3450 that's pretty worn and giving me troubles every now and then, and I need to upgrade. I've been looking alot at the i5 7600k, but I can't figure out if it's worth the money as I also have to buy a new motherboard, and new RAM (can't find a decent motherboard that supports 7th gen and also DDR3 RAM), so I'm looking at around 0 in total.

Would it be better for me to get a 6th gen and a motherboard supporting 6th gen?

For the record, the motherboard I'm looking at is the MSI B250 PC MATE

i5-7600k + GTX 1080ti
Hi there , I have an i5 7600k looking to use a GTX 1080ti. Will that bottleneck if I want to play in 1440p ? I play triple A titles all the time. But I don't multitask or stream. Just strictly game and YouTube here and there. Thanks !
