Thanks FV. I just wanted to ensure it was Cost vs Price. Goal for me to shoot for. :lol:

The WS Z370 should be around $400 maybe a little less, the 8700K right now is $417 should come down, here's the kicker is ram, if only 16 gig not to bad $210, use the same cooler you're out $1000, less than a Iphone X by $200...

Your about right. I think the WS will be higher. We'll see. After looking at our AIDA scores, I have to think why bother now. :lol:

Would not dare to upgrade my 7+. Not in the next couple of years anyway. :lol:

Going to be a nice upgrade FVB, you really went out well on this one. Take your time and hope all goes well.

I am not sure there is going to be a Z370-WS. Better to wait until Z390 anyway then you should see it and the Z390.

That’s my plan. Thanks.

Re: Fall Upgrade 2017!
 
It is not a top seller board IMO so ASUS does not produce them every generation. I am almost positive ASUS will wait until Z390 to bring it out. There are too many new features on Z390 not to wait. When the 8-core arrives the 8700K will be left at the alter. Especially if it is on 10nm.

"thank you for contacting Noctua!

All chromax fans (except NF-A15 HS) come with 4 anti-vibration pads per colour. If you wish to have a completely black fan you can purchase additional pads for a small fee.

Thanks FV. I really don't need them. Not worth the effort. I can mix colors with my remaining mounts. Not worth the effort. I believe for the larger fans, vibration may be an issue. Save them. One thing for sure - that has got to be the most stupid thing I ever heard (Noctua). :rotflmao:
