If I am understanding the camels correctly, this is the lowest Amazon has had this processor.
It's also $288.99 with the cooler, but I wanted just the CPU to go in the Deskmini from yesterday's FP deal.

Better off spending $20 more on an i5-8600K when they are widely available in a couple weeks. 6 cores is better than 4 when you're talking similar money spent. Might as well futureproof a little bit, especially with DDR4 prices right now. Plus you can take that puppy up to 4.8 GHZ with virtually no effort with an inexpensive aftermarket heatsink and blow this 7700 away.

Set cpu multipler to 48. Set load line calibration to the second to highest setting. Done. Will be stable for years.

You will need a motherboard that supports this processor as well...not a very good comparison.

I still think the 7700K in eBay from monoprice is a better deal at $289. After tax for this CPU you are almost looking at same price.

Are DDR4 prices pretty low right now? Haven't really looked into them.

I've got it from refurbforless on eBay for 255 and no tax yesterday. Oh, and 8% ebay cash back :-) $$235 for me. I have H270 and B150 collecting dust on the shelf, so I can justify this purchase. Otherwise I would have got i5-8400, which I have got too anyway...........

You can compare the I7 7700 vs the I5 8600k here: http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Comp...3887vs3941 Unless you are upgrading on the same board, get the 8600K. Way better value/performance.
