BE AMAZED WITH THE 8TH GEN DESKTOP PROCESSORS
Intel's 8th Gen processors let you have amazing gaming, entertainment and VR experiences. The i7 8700K processor extends all the capabilities that users love from previous generation CPUs with even more advanced innovatations that deliver new levels of performance immersing you into your computing on a variety of form factors. The 8700K features all the latest Intel technologies to allow you to have the best computing experience ever, and this particular CPU is unlocked allowing you to overclock it to your gaming or production needs.

Please Note: Intel 8th. Gen 'Coffee Lake' CPUs are ONLY compatible with Intel Z370 Motherboards. Although these Intel 8th. Gen 'Coffee Lake' CPUs share the same socket as Intel's 7th & 6th Gen. CPUs, they are electrically incompatible & will not work with Intel's 200 & 100 Series Motherboards.


The stock speed of this CPU is 4.7GHz. Firstly we bin test a number of these chips to find the best of the bunch.



From these select few CPU's we remove the Intel TIM and replace with a liquid metal which helps to achieve a much lower running temperature. In most cases this ranges from reducing the temperature under load by 15-26C. These are tested for 24 hours to ensure stability.



5.0Ghz can only be achieved in non AVX applications. Games and most applications do not use AVX.



By default we test off of these CPU's on a Gigabyte Z370 Gaming 7 and Asus Z370 Strix with a vcore of 1.38v. Lesser boards may have cheaper VRM's and can’t achieve above 4.8GHz.



Depending on your board and other components you will need to run between 1.35v and 1.42v



Other requirements to run at 5.0GHz



- Performance memory, we test with corsair 3200mhz LPX.
- Good 'Quality' PSU, ideally 600w gold rated or better.
- Adequate cooling - You may get away with using a closed loop dual radiator such as a corsair H100, but we always recommend a custom open loop setup and good quality thermal paste.

After this product was sold out at another well known retailer I was a bit dubious of buying from a different site. The product came as advertised and the delid job was excellent. I can get 5Ghz stable at 1.29v which is superb. You even get the original retail box unlike other OEM products. Great work.
