So this exact same product gets posted 5 days ago £9 cheaper and gets voted -200c cold. Here we are with a more expensive deal and it gets voted hot?!

This site is full of misinformed sheep. If you want legitimate computer advice check out various online forums not what people are saying on here. Makes literally no sense whatsoever.

thats what i used to think before i went R7. Suddenly no frame rate drop regardless of what or how many processes are running.
I encode video now while gaming. Its like a step into the future.

Kaby lake is obsolete and massivly overpriced.
fake news, that cpu has been at that price for a long time ... the 8700k is £320 with 6cores

Crazy price for a great CPU, Just remember to get the lastest bios for your mother board for spectre and meltdown. Great CPU, I have the I7 6700k and it Overclocks like a boss, this CPU must just perform all round better than the 6700k. Amazing.

It's 12 months old, not what I would call brand new in the PC world, has also been superceded by the i7 8700k, however that's a different socket.
Dont buy if you want to play games and encode them on the fly for Youtube streams; for some reason this is one of the worst performing cpus out there, even i5's beat it.

Other than that, go for it.

much of a upgrade for a 6600k at 4.5ghz gaming
The deal someone posted for the 8700k +MN for around £400 was better imo.
Ryzen has changed things on the value for money front. For gaming if you have to do intel then an 8400 would make more sense, new socket though.

No, but I am on a mix of pain meds that makes me fall over sometimes.

At BEST, this is an average deal if:

1) you've got a z170/270 system with a low end CPU
AND,
2) you really want an overclockable i7 and will be overclocking it.

The 8600k and 8700 (non-K) can be had for comparable prices, the former actually being cheaper right now, with better performance. Pair it with a cheap Z370 mobo (around £95-£110).

A Ryzen build would probably work out cheaper and offer similar performance or better in multitasking operations.

I wouldn’t buy a new cpu until the siliconchanges. All these CPUs and probably the next couple will be shipped vulnerable, then have that fixed with software.

I'm not sure why this one popped up to hugely hot and that one went big cold... Maybe the users have different support levels? Maybe collusion of upvotes, maybe just random pushes influence others.

Also, this deal actually is not that great as the 7700k has been replaced by a significantly better processor that was just posted for 309 quid.

Personally never had any problems playing PUBG and streaming at the same time (wasn't encoding however) on my 7700K. Also OCs really well. Delid drops the temps even lower.
i5 for gaming and i7 for computer design

Rubbish. Intel are planning a software update release imminently. You do realise intel release new cpu like once sometimes twice a year? Do your gonna wait for at least a year to buy a processor due to a very small chance your data could get hacked?

Saw a 8700k on warehouse during Amazon £10 off day for £250... Bottled it in case it was the usual empty box I seem to get these days.

I run an i5 3450 with my gtx 1080ti

I downgraded from i7 6700k with git fast memory for a gain of about £400

If you can tell the difference in gaming, even with my vive... I would call you a liar.

Its all about the GPU..Intel is just making you look foolish!
how was this 400 pounds rrp
Now with the power of a 6th gen thanks to Spectre and Meltdown patches!
Might want to wait to see the performance impact of Spectre/Meltdown patches. Potentially up to 30% depending on the workload!

Ryzen won't offer similar performance for gaming.

I picked up a PC recently with this CPU in. Makes the deal I all the more better!

It was a prebuilt Cyberpower Titanium Luxe.

I7-7700k, H60 Watercooled CPU (So no overclocking realistically)
16GB DDR4 3200 Corsair
GTX 1080ti armor OC (I've recently added the Accellero aftermarket cooler on this)
250gb SSD
1TB HD
Coolmaster PSU
In Win 805 Case with tempered glass sides

Looked to build the same pc, and it was over £1700. Cost to me was £1060 (inclusive of accellero cooler). Bloody bargain!

Can be had on eBay, but it's around £1350 now which is still cheap for those looking
Forgive my ignorance but aren't these all faulty , shouldn't we be waiting for the new design without the security vulnerability that does not need to be patched . Surely it would be the worst possible time to buy now I am making an honest point .

Software release... be a couple generations before we get a full on hardware fix. No point getting a new cpu now, especially since the cpu is rarely the bottleneck these days.
This is a fake 'discount', since when was this cpu £415? The answer is never.

It basically never got over 350, has been superceeded by a better chip and is declining is price for that reason. At best you could say this is saving about £20.
Don't bother with this, Get Coffeelake the i5 if you want this level of performance for this price point as it will give you an upgrade path if you really need one after.

I'd only get the kabylake CPUs if your buying second hand for a significant discount.

I have no idea why this is being voted up so much.

Worth upgrading from a 5 year old i7-2600k?
The i5-8600K is better and still cheaper than this. The only advantage the i7-7700K has is it supports older Z170/Z270 motherboards.

Not true. For the significant majority of users (read >98%), the bottleneck for gaming is the graphics card.

Unless you're running a 1080Ti or a Titan, you will notice no difference in gaming comparing a Ryzen and an Intel chip at present.

Thats why the gaming benchmarks which are designed to test pure CPU power always use low graphical settings so they ensure that the GPU isnt the bottleneck.
Heat for price and op being brave enough to post an intel deal.


The hotukdeals trollswont show any mercy
Since when has it come down 37% OP?! That's just outright misleading!

I paid around £280 for this a couple of months back.

Cold!

I would especially if one runs a Ti or Titan, provided that he/she play at the resolution this cards are meant to drive (2/4k), won't notice any difference. If there's need 1080p at ultra high framerates (> 144hz) by all means overcloked i7 K skus is where it's at, otherwise people are just tossing money away compared to what experience going for ryzens in particular, or even i5 8XXX and a faster gpu can offer.

I own both and I get 20fps boost on my intel over the ryzen in pubg
In my experience any intel cpu when over clocked to ~ the 4.5ghz mark will perform the same for gaming (4 core 8 thread type processors) regardless of which series it is, I.e sandy bridge, ivy, coffee lake etc. Whilst games do make good use of extra threads sometimes if your a gamer there is no need for anything over a 2500k type cpu.

TLDR: If you own a 2500k or 2600k processor or above and merely do gaming and have no need for newer technology (nvme ssd, better igpu, entrance pcie lanes etc) then just stick with what you have. There is literally at best a few fps difference between each.

People should try snag a cheap i5 or i7 bundle off ebay if your looking to get into gaming but not wanting to break the bank.
