-smoother framerates coming from a 4690k
-locked at 4.3 on all cores, have this on liquid cooling h100i v2 runs 50 - 60 degrees at most in gaming (BF1, pubg , gta 5 ghost recon wildlands and Witcher 3 ) ,I do recommend a good air cooler if not OCing
- overclock results so far are 4.6 @ 1.20 vcore 4.8 @ 1.25, temps 50-high 70s peak loads , havent tried anything higher and don't notice a difference in smoothness at 1080p 60
no problems so far , highly rec if your coming from 7th gen i5 or lower , previous i7 owners all the down to sandy bridge might not notice a difference in gaming until games actually use 6 cores and 12 threads. but even if you do upgrade you wont be disappointed . 10/10

The other chip ran 4.8 at ease with 1.2450 vcore and 52-65 in games and editing.However I did delid and add liquid metal to both so I decided to bump the cool chip up a bit more to 5.0.I bought TWO of these chips just to try to run at 5.0Ghz 24/7 so I had to try.As happy as I can possibly be,the Amazon chip was the one from the better batch L805D729.Translation year 2018 week number 5 of 2018 that makes it the first week of February batch D grade from the 729th posistion of the waffer.I got it to boot at 5.4 with 1.4560vcore but was usless as it wouldnt bench anything.Same with 5.3 vcore 1.4560 would not bench mark.Disabled hyperthreading and bang, I could then run any benchmark I had at it but it was still no peace as it scored much lower with only 6 threads.5.2 however ran flawless at vcore 1.4350 but it didnt like it cause the temps were staring down a 90c max temp.So I relaxed it back at 5.0 with a vcore of 1.3250 and LLC set to 5 and maximum cpu current to 140% with a H150i RGB Pro(360mm Radiator) and its fans set to 100% duty cycle by 65c it never goes over 67 and it seems to enjoy its self.The whole reason I bought two was so I could find a trusty 5Ghz chip.So since I got a hot chip from Newegg I decided to try my luck with Amazon to possibly get a better batch from them.It worked.I had a i7920 overclocked to 3.7Ghz for 8 years and tested my new 8700k against its benchmarks I had saved over the 8 years and wow the 8700k is like 6 i7920's combined, maybe more.Very happy to have yet another i7 flagship future proof monster.My i7920 rig was bottlenecking the hell out of my GTX 780 as well.Now that I have an actual PciE3.0 capable motherboard, and a chip that can exploit it's bandwidth and gpu calculations its performing like a brand new experience.GTX780 now performs at least 30% better or more no exaggeration I thought it was time for a new GPU at one point then I realized my i7920 was a total bottleneck glad I upgraded to the 8700k.
The i7 lineup has been somewhat "meh" for years, and in my opinion the i5, overclocked, has been the best option for gaming.
But AMD putting pressure on Intel has now given us two more physical cores on the i7, and this is an excellent device. I'm not an overclocker, so I didn't get the K version, but the 8700 is a great device. It runs noticeably cooler than the 7700 in a friends PC (the transistor pitch is bigger on the 8700, making it's thermal characteristics better, but it's on a bigger die).
I play a lot of simulations, where the processor is generally the bottleneck (it doesn't matter how fast your graphics board is, if the processor can't calculate the physics fast enough, you're frame rate will drop), but this brute forces it's way through.
I'm extremely impressed with this.
