    Intel should really be ashamed. 8086k delid temp reduced 20C+ under load

    In a moment of weakness, and mania, I bought a 8086k in the quest for 5ghz stable. My 8700k only did 4.8ghz at reasonable volts with my AIO cooler. That 8700K was delidded, ran at 4.8ghz 1.36v, and maxed in the low 70's C in general. Before delid, it would peak well over 85C and programs...

    A LOL what if... X299 and 7740k

    I keep seeing people complain about the cost of the 7740k/X299; to basically get a 7700k on the x299 platform. But how much would it take for you to consider it a win; provided the platform does indeed oc better than Z270 etc...???? Would 200mhz extra be worth it? 500mhz???? I'm happy with...

    7700k @5ghz+ stability testing. Questions for the people with success

    Ok, I have my 7700k that I ran on an Asrock Z170 Fatality K4. Would run 4.8ghz at 1.325v. Running at 5ghz seemed ok, except for OCCT would would immediately fail like within seconds. Added voltage would help it reach a minute or so, but then it'd die too. Past 1.36-1.375 added voltage just...

    OC thoughts? 4.05Ghz on 1700 Ryzen with AIO 240 cooler? Not sure I'm all that impressed. Well let me rephrase. I'm not that excited about the oc. The cpu seems damm fine and all, provided you need 8c/16t. I guess I'm a more simple user, and while more cores appeals to me, the "need" or more...

    At current rumor prices; what are you thinking for Ryzen cpu purchase? Just curious

    I was hoping the 8c/16t was going to be more like $450ish, but the flagship cpu rumor is $600-750 from what I see. A bit rich for my blood; given nothing I use needs that much thread/power. I mainly game(CSGO, Overwatch, etc..) and tbh nothing I use pushes what I have(6700k@4.6), but when has...
