Core i7-8700K
  • The Core i7-8700K has higher Level 3 Cache. This is useful when you have substantial multiprocessing workloads, many computationally intense simultaneous processes. More likely on a server, less on a personally used computer for interactive desktop workloads.
  • The Core i7-8700K has more threads. Larger programs are divided into threads (small sections) so that the processor can execute them simultaneously to get faster execution.
  • The Core i7-8700K has a higher turbo clock boost. Turbo Boost is a CPU feature that will run CPU clock speed faster than its base clock, if certain conditions are present. It will enable older software that runs on fewer cores, to perform better on newer hardware. Since games are software too, it is also applicable to them.

    I9 9900k/i7 9700k or i7 8700k
    Hey folks.
    I resently sold my i5 6600 with some other stuff expecting to upgrade when the 9th Gen Intel chips released. (which I thought was September 1st. Not October..) now the question is? Should I wait for October and watch the price fall of the i7 8700k or pay more and get the 9th Gen. My budget is only capable of the pricerange of the i7 8700k. Is it worth to wait and see the change in price? Or?

    I decided to buy the 8086k since there was a good deal on Amazon for more than the 8700k.
    I'm going to run on an AsRock Taichi and should get at least 5.1-5.3 on water cooling.

    We know that the i7 9700k is 8C/8T and there's literally a couple of games that can truly take advantage of more than 4 cores, let alone 6 or 8!
    Plus quite a lot of games still benefit from HT, so makes the decision between 8700k/8086k and the 9700k much easier.

    Assuming my 8086k is a well binned chip and I can sit at 5.1-5.3 on all cores, I truly don't see how the 9700k or even the 9900k could offer much more than a modest improvement.
    It's not a different CPU architecture, it's just soldered coffee lake so for gaming any benefits over a nicely binned 8700k/8086k are not worth the extra money, and if you already have this chip, certainly not worth the upgrade if you use your PC mostly for gaming.

    If you have other things you do, streaming or video production then sure, the 9700/9900 will be a good option, but if you are like me and 99% gaming, there's likely no value for the additional cost that intel will of course charge.

    Cheers.

    i7 4790 or i7 8700k
    Hi all ,
    I'm currently using a i7 4790 with a 1080ti ,16gb 1600 ram @ 1440p 144hz , no massive issues just feel i should be getting more fps from my card (60-80 fps on new tombraider ultra , 60/70 on AC origins drops below 50 sometimes on ultra)

    I've been looking at i7 8700k mobo 16gb ddr4 bundles for and £700 would i get much benefit from this expensive upgrade?

    i7 8700 vs i7 8700K(No overclocking)
    I have been using the i5 4590 and now I am going for a full upgrade which includes RAM,MOB etc.The internet is blowing up about how awesome the i7 8700K is for gaming but nobody seems to talk about the i7 8700.Can someone please tell me which one to go for,the non K version or the K version.Please keep in mind that I will not be overclocking even if I get the K version and will the difference in gaming performance be significant when both CPUs are running at stock settings.

    I5 9600K vs I7 8700K
    I have just upgraded to a 1080 TI and I will be needing a new CPU to go with it. Right now I am thinking about one of these two.
    Cant seem to find many great benchmark comparisons between them. The I5 9600K is about 70 euroes cheaper, but is it worth it to spend the extra 70 euroes for the 8700K?
    I am gaming on 1080p 144hz.

    I7-8700k too hot?
    So I recently installed an i7-8700k with a Hyper Evo 212 as the cooler and I'm not sure if my temps are where they should be, also before asked yes its running at stock and not overclocked.

    When I check the bios after a shut down shortly after following a game being played, it says its at 60-63 or so. But when I'm using programs such as HWinfo or CPUID HwMonitor, it says that sometimes my maximum it hits is like 78-80 or so while staying at around 60ish.

    Today is relatively a hotter day then usual in California (93 degrees) So I'm not sure if that comes into play. Or if I potentially seated my Evo incorrectly? Not sure.

    I have an AsRock Z370 mPro4 as my motherboard and any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I7 8700k or i5 8600k for gaming
    Hi, it's my first time building a pc so I have very little knowledge about processors.
    Both the i7 8700k and i5 8600k have similar single core and quad core performance according to user benchmark, I have heard that most games don't use more than 4 cores.
    So I'll be playing in a 1440p 144hz IPS g-sync monitor with GTX 1080 and mostly games like counter strike,pubg and fortnite

    intel i7-8700k idle temps
    are these normal idle temps for the 8700k my setup is as follows
    cpu- not overclocked stock with mce disabled
    gpu gtx 1080
    Motherboard z370 Asrock k6 gaming
    case fans are 2 jetflo 120's intake front of case
    rear fans 2 jetflo 120s in push pull config on my corsair h80iv2

    using corsair link to view my temps cpu package temp sitting idle is at 33.0C
    gtx 1080 at idle is 53C
    MB temps are 31-33C
    ram is at 33.5/34.5C
    and the rad temp is 31.7C

    as I said I have no overclock just want to make sure these are normal temps for idle for my setup or what I can do to improve temps, under load can get up to 65C 100% can start to touch 68-69 at some points have my case fans set to 80% and the rad and pump to performance mode in corsair app

    I7 8700k 5ghz temps?
    Hey guys,

    I’ve overclocked my i7 8700k to 5ghz and am currently using Corsair H150i 360mm radiator.

    Are my temps too high for this overclock?

    Idle - 30-40 degrees Celsius
    Stress test - 75-82 degrees Celsius

    Playing pubg it is around 50 degrees.

    All cores are stable with this overclock, I’m just concerned that my temps may be a bit high?

    What do you think?
    Thanks!

    i7 8700k vs i7 7820x
    If i am building a pc, is the 7820x the better alternative since it uses the 2066 socket instead if the 1511 and i can easily upgrade to an i9 down the road without switching the motherboard? Or is this "future proofing" silly and stupid?
    The pc will be used for video editing (4k 60fps from gopro), audio editing and programming. Which cpu is better?

    i7 8700k vs i5 8600k
    so i am purchasing my new pc part for part (yes i know, i picked a wrong time to buy one part for part) and i have every single part i need besides the gpu and cpu. i was originally going to go for the i5 8600k because it is 0 less than the 8700k and has very little decrease in performance. but now that i'm almost done with the build, i'm not sure if i should stick with the 8600k or just say whatever and buy the 8700k for 0 more. is the 0 worth the extra 6 threads and little increase in performance? you guys are my budgeters now, all trust in you.

    i7 8700k 4.6ghz OC @ 1.35v ?
    Im very disappointed in my i7 8700k. I'm only able to overclock to 4.6ghz before the voltage gets above 1.4v. Max temps while gaming is around 40-65 degrees Celsius (reaches 80 during rendering) Would a better cooler help with overclocking or am I limited to 4.6ghz ?
    Motherboard: Asus z370 Prime P
    My cooler right now is a CoolerMaster 212 I believe but I am thinking of upgrading to the Corsair h100i v2 liquid cooling.
    Would better cooling help with higher overclocks and reducing voltage?

    Intel Core i7 8700k or i7 8700
    I know the "k" stands for unlocked, and I don't really plan on overclocking (Maybe I will, although I doubt it a lot). But the i7 8700k has much higher clock speeds and MHz, does it really matter? Will it make a huge difference in gaming and 3D modelling? Also, I plan on getting the Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Gaming 7, wether I overclock or no, I love that board, is it still recommended for the i7 8700?

    i7-8700K vs. the upcoming i9-9900K?
    Greetings,

    Currently I have this old computer setup which is about 10 years old, which consists of
    Core 2 Quad Q9400, Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L, 4 GB of DDR2 Ram and a 600 watt PSU. I did upgrade the GPU to a GTX 760.

    I want to upgrade the core components. Namely, the CPU, the motherboard and RAM. I was settled on buying the very popular 8700k but then I knew that there was an upcoming processor (i9-9900k) which is supposed to have (according to the speculations) 2 more cores and it should have the AVX-512 instruction set.

    I do plan on using it for SolidWorks, Ansys, Autodesk Netfabb and VRmesh. This will also be used for some gaming.

    My questions are:
    1-Will the AVX-512 instruction set be of any benefit for running these software?
    2-Aside from Ansys software which may benefit from the extra cores, most of the other software are single threaded and won't benefit from the extra cores. Will these 8 cores be necessary for the future?
    3-To what extent does the L2 cache affect a computer performance?

    Thanks in advance.

    Intel i7-8700k vs i7-8086k
    I'm looking at building a gaming pc, and my primary goal is to make it powerful enough to run future games as well as modern ones. I was looking at buying an i7-8700k (3.7 GHz, 0) because it see seemed the best price for the power it offered since it's essentially Intel's flagship processor. But I saw the i7-8086 (5.0 GHz, 0) and it is minorly more powerful but it's clock speed is significantly higher. So is it worth paying the extra 0 for the clock speed (and I think 2 more cores, not sure)? I'm trying to keep expenses to a minimum but if this gives me a significant advantage and longevity, I would consider the price.

    I want to know the best settings for my bios . i want to use my cpu on 4.7ghz and my ram on 3200mhz.
    i turned on xmp and clicked on no after it and applied intel default settings and then set the cpu ratio to sync all cores and 47 and didn't do anything else.
    is this a good settings for what i want to achieve ? (4.7ghz cpu stock speed) and using balanced power mode in windows to minimize the clock speed when idle or lower loads.
    my use is 2560*1440p 144hz gaming.
    should i manually add a voltage or any other settings ? i checked my voltage on aida64 stress test and it goes to 1.340 with the current settings i mentioned.

    Need help with my overclock (i7 8700k)
    Hello dear Tommunity.

    I have some problems while overclocking my i7 8700k.
    The highest I can get is 4.7GHz at 1.3V. That is pretty high for an 8700k, other people get 5GHz at 1.29V.
    Did I do something wrong in the UEFI-BIOS ?
    I set: Multiplier on 47 = 4.7GHZ, VCore Voltage on 1.3V and the Internal Loadline Calibaration on Extreme. And I turned on XPM.

    Is my CPU just bad (Silicone Lottery), is it my Mainboard, or is it just me?
    I have the Z370 Aorus Ultra Gaming. I heard a lot of bad reviews from der8auer, OC3D and more about overclocking and stability and I wonder if that may be the problem.

    I even delided my CPU yesterday, hoping that it would fix it by lowering thermals. I have around 50°C-60°C before it crashes.

    VID Overclocking [i7 8700k]
    Generally, the question is why/should VID fluctuates so much and if this means anything.
    I'm new to this scene, I was never into overclocking before.

    I have the AORUS Z370 Gaming 7 motherboard and overclocked my lidded i7 8700k to 4.8ghz [4.5ghz Uncore, TurboBoost Enabled] in the BIOS with default voltage settings, because this was recommended by both the manufacturer and online tips for doing "lower" overclocks (like 4.7-4.8ghz) which the unlocked 8700k CPU should be sufficient to handle. I originally used Intel Extreme Tuning Utility, but it started giving me unstable overclocking after two weeks of use with no issues (it losing frequency under load intermittently by ~100mhz), and I've read to simply set to defaults, uninstall, and overclock from BIOS. It's running at a steady 4800mhz now under variable load. (Yes, temps are fine, I'm just concerned with power and frequency at this point)

    The VID is constantly moving randomly between 1.26-1.38V even at 0-3% CPU usage. I'm using CoreTemp to monitor VID, Temp, Usage, and Clock, but I ran HWiNFO64 and noticed an even more, quicker fluctuation (down to 1.20V) with HWiNFO64. I'm assuming that just has to do with a different sensor and refresh rate.

    Everywhere I read claims that they overclocked their CPU with something like "1.34V stable", and I was wondering what this means exactly and if it's normal for your VID to fluctuate like crazy. If so, what is the point of changing your voltages in the BIOS the first place if they simply dance all over the place? I've read that for the longevity of your CPU, you don't want to go over 1.4V, but I don't seem to understand how this is controlled. I used the "Intel Burn Test 2.54" which artificially put the cores at 100% and it was running at 1.3302V pretty steadily, but it goes higher occasionally in real world use (haven't seen it over 1.38 yet).

    I don't want to damage anything and I'd like to maximize the performance I get with overclocked frequencies. I couldn't find a lot of solid information on how this all works, with a lot of conflicting or incomplete information. despite my efforts. Maybe in the future I'd want to [see if I could] go over 4.8ghz, but I'm content with it right now.

    I might be overreacting and looking for a reason as to why my overclocking randomly stopped working despite having no hardware/software changes, but I also just want to know for sure my CPU is working alright and won't become damaged.

    Intel core i7-8700K OC
    I am new to all of this overclocking.

    I overclocked my i7-8700k to 5ghz with 1.3V is that good enough ?

    And while i was running aida64 fan running at 750rpm and temp is at 64C

    Is that good enough or should i change anything. And is running Aida64 enough to know that the overclock is stable ?

    I7 8700k how to overclock it to 5GHz
    Im total noob and i dont know anything about overclocking but the fact i see people going up 5GHZ why not doing it if it gives this extra performance! plus i do a lot of video editing on high resolution 2k and 4k

    My Specs:

    i7 8700k stock 3.7 GHZ
    Asus Rog Strix z370f
    MSI 1080ti Gaming X Trio
    16 GB Ram at 3000mhz
    Water Liquid Kraken x52
    1.2 TB SS
    BIOS Version: 0606 the latest one 04-01-2018

    any idea how should i play with the BIOS tweaks to reach to 5.0ghz with a good temperature on my CPU.

    i5 8600k & 1080ti or i7 8700k & 1080
    hello guys i am so confused, i know there are lots of threads regarding this but i need some answers for experts.

    my old pc is dead so i am upgrading to new one. i use my pc for gaming. no streaming/rendering videos

    what should i go for i5 8600k @ 1080ti or i7 with 1080

    now i have a 1080p monitor but i am looking to upgrade to 4k 60fps or 2k 144fps in a year or so

    i need to make a decision because i wont be able to change the process or GPU for next 2 - 3 years.

    8600k will bottleneck 1080ti? or its better to stick with i7 and 1080.which has better value
    suggestions are appreciated. thank you

    i7 8700k Did i loose?
    literally i did everything to overclock my cpu! i watched a lot of tutorials, followed exactly what on youtube, not sure what going wrong or my chip is that bad!!

    cant even be stable on 4.4 Ghz 1.25v !
    tried on 5ghz from 1.350v till 1.412v it just cant be stable always freeze on windows or while benchmark.

    My specs are:
    i7 8700k
    Mobo: Asus Maximus x Formula
    1 TB SSD
    kraken x62 water cooling
    850w silverstone gold
    G.skill 2x8, 16 GB can reach up to 3000mhz

    i heard Ram plays a big role .. should i remove 1 8gb ram and try? would that help?
    i see people stable 4.4ghz on 1.1v and me cant even be stable on 1.25v!
    and some 5ghz are stable on 1.3v and me i reached 1.412 and still my chip doesnt want to be stable.

    should i return the chip to intel?

    I7 8700K Overclock
    Hello! I'm planning on overclocking my 8700K and I was thinking on 4.8Ghz. I know that all chip are different but I would like to try if my chip can do 4.8
    This is my first time overclocking so I dont know lots of thing, from what I know I have to go to the BIOS and put the multiplier on 48 and voltage on auto, and thats it.
    Some people told me to disable EIST and C-STATE, can you tell me if I should disable them and what are those things for?
    If it really gets hot. should I put AVX Ratio to -3? I heard that AVX instructions are the worst for the cpu, they need lots of pówer and that makes de cpu run hotter than normaly.

    i7-8700k 5GHz OC?
    So I'm experimenting with my new 8700k to get it up to 5GHz. I'm a beginner at OC, so I set now 5GHz @ 1,31V. I use AIDA64 for testing. The test looks fine for 30 seconds: 5GHz, 110-120W, 80 degrees Celsius. But then it gets limited to the TDP of 95W. Is this normal?

    EDIT: read the temperature wrong, it got to max 80 degrees Celsius, before it turned down from 120W to 95W

    https://prnt.sc/i9nshb So these are the 3 programs to test it, screenshot right after starting up the PC.

    https://prnt.sc/i9nyb6 After 8:50 AIDA64, it was 110-120W in the first 20-40 seconds, then back to 95W. (BIOS CPU voltage setting @ 1,31V)

    Overclocking, i7 8700k, Performance
    Hi so I want to ask the community about Overclocking CPU's. I have a i7 8700k With a good cooler and wanted to change the Core Frequency to all cores at 4.8GHz. Can I change all cores to 4.8GHz with out changing or touching Voltage and or Power Limit options?

    Also, I want to over clock my Cache from 4.4GHz stock to 4.5GHz.

    Is it possible to overclock both parts with out any Voltage or Power Limit changes?

    Furthermore, how do I make sure after overclocking that my CPU can still down clock when at very low usage or idle? So still have adaptive frequency enabled?

    Windows 10 64-Bit Settings:
    Power Options are at Balanced with Min CPU Usage at 10% and Max at 100% with Adaptive Cooling (enabled)

    Components:
    1) i7 8700k
    2) NZXT H440
    3) Power Supply 750W
    4) Asrock Taichi Z370 Motherboard

    Thanks

    Problem overclocking i7 8700k
    So I have a z370 asrock extreme 4 and I'm trying to overclock my i7 8700k to 5GHz but can't even get it to 4.7 on a decent voltage and yet still crashes, I'm running a pre set 4.7 oc cuz Manual which works fine for my i7 6700k which is 4.7 and a Lower voltage doesnt work. So i7 8700k 4.7 1.36 v and my mates machine 4.7 1.30. Is there any other thing that needs to be changed in the bios because should be getting 5GHz and that current voltage of 1.36, if anyone knows fix would be good thanks

    Faulty I7 8700K?
    Hello I built a new PC about a month ago. It worked fine for about two weeks, then one day it froze. I restarted the PC and it began a boot loop with multiple bluescreen windows errors. Most commonly SYSTEM THREAD EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED and BAD POOL HEADER.

    I've done a lot of reading and testing. I cannot get into windows to retrieve the dump files. It just constantly boot loops after the PC posts. Even with a bootable windows USB drive it does the same thing.

    Here are a couple of things I tried ( All tests were done using the onboard video. I took the video card out of the PC)

    I swapped the ram out with ram from from a working PC and the same issue.

    I disconnected the SSD with Windows and tried to boot just off the Windows Bootable flash drive, but same blue screen issues.

    Sometimes the ASUS Bios would freeze up so I thought maybe the Cmos needed resetting or the motherboard was defective. After resetting the Cmos with no change, ASUS replaced my motherboard. But I still have the same problem.

    I thought maybe grounding issues or powersupply? So I went through and checked all of the motherboard screws and even swapped the powersupply port for the CPU from CPU port #1 to CPU port #2 on my powersupply

    So my guess now is that either the CPU is bad or the powersupply. I'm leaning more toward the CPU. I haven't gotten the chance to Overclock anything yet. So that I know of I didn't screw anything up. Temp has never been issue.

    Any suggestions?

    Asus Z370-E Motherboard
    EVGA 750 Gold Powersupply
    Corsair Vengence DDR4 3000

    RTX 2080 Ti Bottleneck i7 8700k?
    Yesterday the new RTX series of GPU's by Nvidia got announced and since they're "The biggest leap in performance" they have done so far, i am planning on getting the 2080 Ti in the near future. I currently have an i7 8700k, 32GB RAM, and an RM 850x PSU. I know that the RAM will be fine and i am guessing the PSU will also be fine, but i do not know if the i7 8700k will Bottleneck the RTX 2080 Ti.

    Normal i7 8700k temps
    I recently built a pc for the first time. Naturally I'm very paranoid and apprehensive about everything. I have an i7 8700k and a 360mm AIO water cooler. My GPU is an Asus 1080ti. When I run AAA games on ultra settings, my cpu reaches as high as 58c. Is this normal? What is the normal range for such a set up?

    I7-8700k vs E5-1650 V4
    Hello I’m going to be running (mainly) monothreaded game servers off of either of these CPUs and wonder which would be better. To be exact I’m going to be running Rust servers ,each of the six cores will be assigned to a server.
    I understand that the 8700k has better monothreaded performance , but the 1650 has more cache.
    Cheers, James.

    Ryzen 7 2700x or i7 8700k
    I really need a new CPU since my i5-4670k has a dying core and I'm torn between the 2700x and the 8700k and right now there is only £30 different between the CPU's on Scan UK.

    I'll mostly be using it for gaming (at 1080p 144Hz with a 1070 Ti, possibly upgrading to 1440p 144Hz at a later date) but I do stream a lot as well and do a small bit of video editing from time to time.

    I already have all the necessary parts picked out and ready for order for both CPU's. I just would like to know what CPU is better for my needs as I'm really not clued up on AMD and I'm willing to try something new.

    Thank you for reading

    i7 8700k Overclocking help
    So I have Asus STRIX z370E Gaming motherboard. With that CPU. I have a few questions before we get to the overclock.

    1) Will OC disable its turbo boost? (Do I really need it when I OC?)
    2) Voltage (After we determine it, can I set it to adaptive or something, so if CPU is not really working a lot it doesnt draw much power?
    3) How long can it last with the overclock?

    I want a mild OC @ 4.7GHz so since that is easy I just need you guys to help me out a bit.
