    Most bang for the buck, as if when writing this.

    Upgrade from 2600k. Light years difference.

    Had wished it was better thermal paste in or solved though.

    Fast and not very hot.
    Overclock itself to about 4.3GHz.
    Incredibly expensive though and then even a cooler does not even include!

    A damn bad buy, I've never had as much heat problems as I have with this crazy CPU ...
    Idle with 1% load is the temperature of 50 C, then with a Crosair H80i V2 cooler.
    With 100% load, the CPU is well above 80C .... Disaster!
    I've been driving AMD many years earlier and I've never had such hot heat problems as AMD is considered and be warmer than Intel's CPUs.

    There is not much more to say than this is a real monster!

    I went from the i7 3770K and GTX 1080 to the i7 8700K @ 4.8GHz (vcore 1.248v) with the same graphics card, GTX 1080. And it really became a big difference in principle in all games! I run all games in 1440p.

    It multitaskar and runs several World Cups without problems, and is raped in Photoshop CC 2018. For current price (390 SEK) it is also quite cheap in my eyes.

    9/10, a star goes away when Intel is still stubborn with its bad IHSs.

    Edit: Reform this review when people did not think my past was good. Perhaps this is better ...

    I own this processor and it's really great. Copies DVDs into DVDFab in less than 1 minute. Can stream heavy 4k MKV files at the same time as several other processes in PLEX and Windows 10. Got from i7 4790k which by the way is a great processor as well. I think it's overcrowded for gaming because, of course, there's no single game that I can use with 6 cores and 12 threads. Just like i9 and Threadripper, this is a little overkill for game play. I would notice just as little difference to FPS as others since I'm not a "game nerd".

    On the other hand, I am "audio file" (Hi-Fi nerd), so I know how different people like the difference between expensive speakers, nice cables, etc. So I have full understanding if some people are more likely to think it actually makes a difference, but I personally would never experience it. But on the other hand, I think it may be different if you have other needs, if you are running multitasking, etc. or if you have extremely big game needs like running a Titan XP with CoD WW2 on 3 screens and having a serious Minecraft server in the background (for example) that would certainly be a fully reasonable option.

    Requires some extra cold at high load but watches like a dream. Found a sweetspot of 4.7 which is good enough a while.

    5.0 @ 1.375v. Temps while gaming do not go above 40c. Delid dropped my temps 10c. Before delid games under load with temps @ 50c plus. I can notice a difference from 3770k everything is smoother. Prime 95 temps hit 60c and Aida64 60c. I'm content but I might try for 5.1

    Pros:

    -Outstanding gaming performance.
    -Just over de snelste single threaded performance die je kan krijgen.
    -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.

    Cons:

    -Difficult to acquire.
    -A little pricey due to scarcity.

    Other Thoughts:

    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 (less than 4000 kroner is a good price for the next few months).

    Just like BlackwaterP4rk, I had problems with Ryzen and was less on all the energy I felt it took off me.

    So I bought a 8700k + Z370-A and have been racing since. Significantly better performance in single-threaded games (CSGO, for example) and desstuom good performance in multi-threaded applications.

    Carries a star because I think prices are starting to get a bit juicy for Intel's products.

    Not the world's most logical product release, but I've been struggling with Ryzen stability issues since its acquisition in June and chose to take the climb back to this proven platform. Although the crashes have not been too tight they have lost lost time and income for me and now I finally feel full confidence in the stability of the can.

    For me, sweet spot became 4.8 GHz at 1.26 volts, giving around 67 degrees in load with Noctua D15. Drive with the Prime Z370-a, maybe you'll get to premium plank without having to throw power on the processor.

    Equivalent old Ryzen 1700 in multithreaded calculation as expected. The single-wire performance may not be necessary, but wonderful at all times of computer use.

    Gone from i5-3570k @ 4.2 GHz (4.4 a period), 16GB 1600MHz DDR3, GTX 1070 Strix OC.
    In new I have 8700k @ 4.8 GHz, 16GB 3200MHz DDR4 + my 1070 Strix that I moved with.
    Also went from 24 "1080p 144Hz to 27" 1440p 144Hz, and worried me if I could reach desirable frames in 1440p.

    Had some fancy days with fps / stutter problems just after the building, but all of it was a Windows Update (1709?) That came 3-4 days later.
    Is massively impressed with how 8700k is performing! Went from 50-70 fps in PUBG to 100-144 fps - when I also run in 1440p. Did not think my 3570k would have bottlenecks so much in 4.2 / 4.4 GHz, but it did. CS: GO, Rocket League, Overwatch locks all 144 fps in principle all the time.

    I run the Fractal Designs Celsius S36 water cooling, and saw some very high temperatures. One tip is NOT to drive auto OC, as this often leads to high core voltage, and this processor is already quite hot at stock! Best practice is to watch yourself.
    Holds around 55-65 degrees in Gaming load @ 4.8 GHz OC, and that's okay. I think I need more OC in the future, I'm considering deleting.

    Amazingly satisfied with my purchase. Some negative points that still pull down a star.

    - Will get a little hot (especially at auto OC)
    - A little good animal like this at the beginning
    - A little difficult to get hold of

    + Best gaming CPU on the market. However, not noticeably better than Intel i7 7700K if you only play. However, you need more cores and threads, for example. When multitasking heavier, like playing Destiny 2 and streaming with Twitch at the same time and losing Google Chrome so sure, then 8700K is a better choice than 7700K.
    + Bells better than intel i7 7700K.

    - Crazy warm. That they use refrigerant paste instead of solving the processor is a joke. My gets closer to 85 C in a couple of hours of play on an air cooler (Cooler Master V8 GTS).
    - Animals compared to intel i7 7700K (which sometimes goes for 2899: - at Dustinhome).
    - Long wait to get home the prolet.
    - Ryzen gives more performance per krona.

    Really satisfied with the performance of the processor. It had been awarded full marks if it was not so horribly hot. Hope Intel begins to dissolve its processors again as the new ones have been unhealthy in temperature. My f.d. The Intel 4690K was on 45C load while my new Intel 8700K is on 85C load.

    Really satisfied got to finish one.
    Easy to overclock to approx. 5ghz, however, requires good cooling when the core temperatures in the windows are stable does not jump like the 7700k did.
    Became a big upgrade to my old i7 2600k, even in 1440p it's significantly more fps

    Make a review without using the processor (unlatched) just because using AMD. Feels a bit unmatched.

    Intel releases its new 8000 series in the i7 category. Now for the first time with 6 kernels and performing cruelly then as you can see in all benchmarks around the net. Despite AMD's very affordable Ryzen series, the i7 8700k is considered the best CPU for Gaming, plus high temperatures and less noise from the fans in the computer. The price falls into the same as the previous i7 processes in the same category, so they do not raise the price is a big plus. Thanks to AMD because you forced Intel to release a better i7 processor, and it really did Intel.
