Re: Intel i7- 8700K Reviews!

It also appears in the benchmarks I previewed many of which the 7700K wins in speed, I might be wrong on this. Lastly, apparently the 8700K is getting very hot at stock 4.7GHz single core (high-eighties C) and Intel is feeding it like +1.3V. This is what you will be gaming at folks. I want it to game at 4.7GHz but I don't want close to 90C and over 1.3V to do it. I guess this is how you reach 4.7GHz stably according to Intel. Looks like Intel is into OCing now.
You picked the wrong review Sandog, lots of reviews where 5ghz on all cores, not one mentioned Thad type of heat, 8700 beats the 7700 in all test i've seen, I put in at least 5 hours today reading and watching YouTube reviews.
