Its probably too early to say on the 8700k, but i began looking at boards to go with.. upgrading from my silicon lottery provided delided 4.6 6700k to shoot for an 8700k which is 4.7 out of the box and maybe via SL a 5+ ghz hopefully (mainly for p3d and xplane and vr use).. I've always been a big fan of Asus, but nothing they have quite matches up to these 3 options and the reviews seem solid so i guess they are an ok choice these days. I'm leaning towards the Fatal1ty k6 or the Taichi.. I like that they have 8 sata and in the case of the Taichi three m.2's along with headers for usb's in the rear totalling 17 overall front to back. **side question, i dont see any usb 3.1 brackets out there with the 20 pin header connectors.. i guess at best i'm seeing only 2 port usb 3.0 ones.. so i'd have to suck up two slots just for 4 ports which seems ridiculous, unless i can pull apart my few 4 port usb 2.0's ones i have and thread in the 3.0 (which isnt 3.1 though).. also not seeing any type C gen 2 headers for the front ports.. i think it expands to 4 if i'm correct? So given these 3 boards.. looked at reviews.. It sounded like the x370 taichi had more issues overclocking, which i found strange (something about the cpu needing more volts and being hotter, than the other 2). All but the Extreme 4 i think support the "ASRock Hyper BCLK Engine II " so i was leaning towards the other two. I saw one reviewer on the Fatal1ty claiming they hit 5.1, but they dont describe if that was stable (and at 1.385 volts though a max of 87C which i guess 90C is the max wtih the 8700k, unsure on volts yet).. delided silicon lottery will probably help (my 6700k from them never exceeds 62 or 65 worst case). They all support 4000-4333 overclocked ram.. is anyone really hitting this? Im at 3200 with the 6700k.. i assume i can just use the same ddr4 gskills (4x8gb), though i think i'd be better off with 2x16 3200s (no advantage to quad, its dual channel i think). If not reusing my Gskill 4x8, im not seeing many choices with decent reviews that are 2x16gb.. Maybe this corsair, higher speed rated ram is harder to find with good reviews or the price gets crazy... only reason why i'd consider switching is if i have trouble hitting 3200 with 5ghz assuming thats the OC i end up with (due to having 4 modules and not two) Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks in advance.
