    Advice to overlock i7 8700K on Asus Z370-I motherboard

    Hello, Which way do you recommend to achieve this overclock? Should I use the factory Asus BIOS utility (accessed with F12 at startup) or would you rather recommend an other way, another program? Thank you in advance.

    Best build for 1080p 60FPS+

    I'm in doubt as to which CPU to pick. It is clear for me that AMD CPUs have a higher cost benefit than Intel CPUs, and in addition offering more cores and threads than Intel, allowing OC on any CPU, including stock coolers and with a path for future upgrades. For these reasons I've already...

    A dud 8700k? (overclocking, that is)

    I wasn't sure if I should drop this here, or in the overclocking subforum... oh well, here is as good a place as any. Anyway.... Did anyone else get an 8700k and wind up with an overclocking turd? Here I see everyone else getting 5ghz with moderate voltages (1.3 to 1.35v, sometimes lower!)...

    (Rant) Asrock Z370M Pro4 mATX - I hate this board...

    This is mostly just a random rant.... Do you ever get a board and just feel like it hates you and you're going to hate it - almost right from the first time you power it up? I have had this Asrock Z370M Pro4 up and running for barely over a day, and I absolutely loathe it already. (For the...

    i7-8700K vs i5-8600K vs i5-8400 vs R5-1600

    Which would you get? The price difference between a build with 8700K and a 8600K is R$414.31($127.48), 8700K and 8400 is R$812.24($249.92) and 8700K to 1600 is R$1104.99($339.99). The Ryzen one seems to offer a lot for its price, but, considereing that a game lasts about 2/3 years to develop, we...

    Noctua NH-U14S good enough for OC'd 8700k?

    I can find a lot info about the Noctua NH-D15(S) in combination with the 8700k, but none with the Noctua NH-U14S. Do you guys think that my Noctua NH-U14S will be sufficiënt if I want to overclock the 8700k say to a modest 4.8ghz? Is the Noctua NH-U14S compatible with socket 1151?

    [HOT?] 8700k Tray Processors $356 shipped

    Caveat Emptor These are tray processors sold to OEM, and therefore have no Intel warranty, we'd be relying on the warranty of the etailer. Albeit, if you're delidding, or using a delidding service like SiliconLottery.com then you likely aren't going to care to much about the Intel warranty...

    Which cooler to pair up with the 8700k?

    I'm thinking about upgrading to the 8700k and hoping to clock it to 5ghz to make it even more worthwhile. In the past I’ve used air coolers exclusively for every build and hesitated going AIO solutions mainly due to being a little unfamiliar with them, but this time I might actually switch over...

    Intel 8700K and 8600K Coffee Lake Reviewed at Lab501

    A Romanian site, LAB501, has posted its full review of Intel's new Coffee Lake processors in the form of the Core i7-8700K and Core i5-8600K. Translated link here, but the site is very slow to load. Overclocking took it to an "easy" 5.1GHz, however I would expect some very high temperatures...
