Personally this is a better deal than the 1600x since you get the wraith spire cooler and you can overclock it.

Bundle a mobo and save another $30
B350 mobos starts at $40 after credit
X370 mobos starts at $80 after credit

go to the microcenter website for the closest store to you and then do a search for motherboards specifying micro atx as the size.

you should be able to see what they offer including open box inventory, but be careful with this since the return policy is obviously different.

they are not instore only, but most of their good deals are B&M... the website is useful for inventory at your local store.

If you game it would be better to save for the new Intel

Looks like amd dropping price on these already to compete with the new i3-8350k. Hopefully they can get the clock speeds up in the next iteration because otherwise we're back to amd giving more cores with less power for the same amount of money. Reminiscent of there failed bulldozer days. :/

This is what I've been saying since day 1 of the Ryzen release. The key is single core performance. Even when talking muticore performance, you can't get more than the sum of your parts.Ryzen has been over hyped and Intel's cores are just so much stronger. Even with 4 less threads and 2 less cores the 8700k is winning in muti thread over the 1800x more than it's losing. AMD has to give more cores to compete at all. If they go core for core it's a blood bath.

I just feel sorry for all those that paid almost $500 for the 1800x

Well there are some negatives to coffee lake. You need a new board...and you'll need a new board when ice lake arrives too. Coffee lake has TIM interface...this means hot temps, so coffee lake will run hot like the 7700k unless you delid which voids warranty. The 1800x is also more power efficient surprisingly than the 8700k which is amazing since it has 2 more cores and four more threads. I think the 1800x is still better overall given that aspect for what I'd want. I like processors that are cool and power efficient. Single core performance is better on the 8700k but I still prefer more cores.

I got an 1800x new for $315. Deals are there. 8700k was $499 at launch and can't be bought anywhere.

i5 8400 seems to beat this? I am more than ready to ditch Sandy Bridge.

Next intel should be a die shrink right?

It might be but i'm not sure it is more power efficient considering the 8700k is beating the 1800x in every single single core performance test and maybe 2/3 of the muticore tests and a vast majority of gaming scores. So yes it might be using more power but it's deliverying more power. The test would be to underclocked the 8700k down to 1800x levels and then check the heat and power consumption.

Honestly I think the best deal will be to get the locked 8700 with a cheap mobo.

The 8400 isn't a bad deal either but I would like the extra clock speed of the 8600k to make up for the lack of hyper threading. Id have to buy a high priced mobo to do that though.

Might as well just get the 8700 locked with a cheap mobo which may outperform the 8600k even overclocked.

tldr best deal is probably the 8600k with z370 mobo or 8700 locked with cheap mobo.
