The only downsides of this chip I have seen so far are two things:
- TIM. To get the most out of this, I'm going to have to delid and use something like Conductonaut. That's not something a normal user would be able or willing to do, and Conductonaut presents more risk of failure if you don't apply it right. Though, I'm fairly certain I can do at least a full time 5.5 ghz on my chip with delidding.
- Anything where sheer core/thread count matters more. But, then again, this is pretty much a hardcore gaming chip. Yes, you can use it just fine in those applications. But, if that kind of productivity is where you are spending most of your PC time, go with Ryzen or step up to a more professional level platform like i9 or TR.
Again, I don't want anyone out there to think that this is standard, the term silicon lottery exists for a reason. However, I will say that if you lose this silicon lottery, you still get the minimum 5 ghz.
Update: was able to get mine clocked to 5.5ghz @ 1.45v. Using cryonaut and ek monoblock. Still ran right around 70c in 3d mark demos.
Look I know this is just a i7 8700k in a Limited Edition box, with a new name, and maybe a little cherry picking/binning from Intel, but I'm old enough to remember those original 8086 procs, even if I was just a kid. I like the nostalgic aspect to this proc, so I'm very pleased with this purchase. Plus it's pretty much the best gaming processor money can buy. I know there are going to be plenty of haters and AMD fanboys telling me how stupid it was to get this proc, but that makes me love it all the more. Great Proc Intel! Next week I'm going to see how well it does going over 5GHz. Here it's at 5.0GHz on all 6 cores.
Maybe it'll be worth some $ someday since it is a limited run.
I've settled on an easy 5Ghz all core+cache overclock at 1.25volts with 4.7Ghz uncore and haven't seen above 71C using a H110i cooler at 20C ambient and 30C to 32C water... ran some Cinebench runs and an hour of prime95 along with a couple hours of gaming with no issues (and stayed under 71C). Trying to run prime95 with 5Ghz uncore (AVX) would result in a blue screen after ~75C unless I had the voltage at 1.32v...but then temps rose above 80C. I will be delidding this one...
Upgraded from a 7700K, that ran at 5.0Ghz @ 1.35V.
The 8086K does 5.0Hhz @ 1.20V, 61°C on all 6 cores without delid. I can easily go to 5.3+ Ghz (reduced efficiency, greater than 1.3V+). I'm very happy with it, gains all around in gaming, day to day and pretty much everything. If you already have an 8700K then I wouldn't recommend it, but otherwise this is a great "8700K".
