Great price.

Overclockers and a few other retailers have it at the same cost. Those shops are doing a cashback deal with asus, so if youre getting a mobo with it and you're looking at ASUS then it might be worth looking else where.

If I have an i7 6700K right now, can I swap that out with this?

Nope, you need a new board

I'm curious what does it mean bundle? Do I need to buy some bundle specific only from their site CPU + Asus mobo? Or can I choose seperately by myself CPU (i7 8700k, i5 8600k) + my own choosen Asus mobo?

There was a link given so I suggest getting it from the horse's mouth.
I thought about then 8th gen i3 until I saw the mb price. Cheaper to buy a faster 7h gen i5 and mb.
This price standard on pcpartpicker for a month...

There are no 8th generation i3 CPUs.

No, it wasn't.

You may have seen this price from BTShop, but they never honored those prices.

You are simply wrong.

The Core i3 Coffee Lake (Generation 8 ) has 2 models.

en.wikipedia.org/wik…ake

The i3 8100 and the i3 8350k

There are 2 more planned i3 models coming out.

Yes it was. As i was about to make another rig.

Motherboard prices for the z370 are down to 91 quid for the low end.

To be fair, I think the value chip is the i5 8400, you get 6 cores, and it's very fast.

But you said i3 8th gen v i5 7th gen.

So let's take a look...

I can see an intel i5 7400 for £143, 7500 for £155, and the 7600k for £182.


The cheapest ATX motherboard available is 52 quid and has virtually no features, but fine, you can have it.


That's 195/207/234 price.


The i3 8100 is £95, the i3 8350k is £141.

That's 186/233.

They cost, virtually, the same, so let's compare!

techpowerup.com/rev…tml

The i3 8350k beats or ties the i5 7600k in every aggregate benchmark. You get a better motherboard too.

The i3 8100 vs the 7400/7500 is a little less easy to find reviews, but, you can find them strewn around the web. The 8100 is better than either.

Perhaps you are a little harsh on your 'motherboard pricing' comment and maybe you didn't realize that the i3s 8's are indeed faster than the i5 7's.

Anyway, there are also two new i3's coming out soon, the i3 8300 and the i5 8500. These should offer even more price ranges and options.
What's the issue with Aria?
just this CPU, it's full power consumption is "95W". What kind of cooling systems need to use for cold down the CPU, and the internal system case? and how much power for the power supply unit I need to use to support the whole system? and guys, how much Britsh Gas will charge you per hour?

You can use the tried and trusted Hyper Evo 212 (20 quid) and keep the overclock light, or you can go with something like the Coolermaster MasterLiquid 240L (60 quid).

The PSU depends on other components, there are plenty of sites online that can help you determine that, I like uk.pcpartpicker.com Just fill in your components and check the power consumption.

Likely a 550w PSU will handle this CPU and a good GPU no issue.

British Gas currently charge anywhere from 12-20p per kWh.

A 95W rating, running at full load, will cost you slightly less than a 100W lightbulb.

So, 10 hours of full power use is 12-20p. The average power is much lower.

TDP or Thermal Design Power is how much electricity it'll use, but rather how much heat it'll give off at its rated speed. If you overclock this then it will get even hotter.
For most people an air cooler such as the Hyper 212 will be sufficient, you could go All in One however just note that eventually they will fail and/or leak.
Use PCPartpicker to judge what kind of PSU you'll need - don't forget to add in the rest of your components. As a rule of thumb 500W should be ample unless you're going crazy with multi GPUs.
