If I may add, 8600k is pretty beastly when OCed to 5.2ghz, being on par with mildly OCed 8700k and beating 5ghz 7700k when gaming. But this isn't possible out of the box performance, even with a decent liquid cooler, most chips cannot stabilize whatsoever. A delidded 8600k at 5.2ghz is known to bring able to run on a good air cooler. This is like sort of like pay to win in the silicon gambling game. Sure you can do this on your own if you have the tools, liquid metal and the know how, but you might just end up getting a chip that can't run that fast at the end.
