I had 10% back in EBay bucks.

This deal was popular at $280 without the 10% in Ebay bucks back at the end of November.

$252 when factoring in 10% in ebay Bucks.

I know the 8700k just came out, but I have an Msi Z270 gaming m.5 that is sposed to be really good at overclocking.

I've got an old cooler from a Vista machine. Any thoughts on whether the old cooler will work or not? In general are cpus the same size?

These are still going for $259.99 in-store at MicroCenter (YMMV). Of course, that adds tax immediately to the purchase, but if you don't have eBay bucks, that would be the way to go in my opinion for ease of returns should you get a CPU that runs hot as these as chips are notorious for running hot--according to Intel, up to 100 C is still a safe operating temperature for these chips. That said, there are lots of anecdotes in reviews of people returning/replacing an i7700k that runs hot after multiple attempts to reseat the CPU cooler and getting one that idles much cooler with the same setup.

As you said:
8% sales tax $260
$20.80

$280.80 Total

Although, Being Able to return would be beneficial.

I got $28 in Ebay Bucks so saved about $28. Hoping I don't get a chip that runs hot.

Trying to decide on a heatsink. This one from Newegg is $24.99 After $10 MIR.

I have an i7-7700k with the Hyper212 EVO. It idled at about 28 C and got up to about 75 C at full load. I went ahead and upgraded the fans to a push-pull configuration with Noctua redux 140mm fans that fit on a 120mm housing (Noctua NF-P14r redux fans https://www.amazon.com/Bearing-Cooling-NF-P14r-redux-1500-PWM/dp/B00KF7QO2G?tag=slicinc-20&ascsubtag... [amazon.com] which were available for $10 a couple times in the past few weeks). It made the heat sink's already tight fit into my mid tower case even tighter, but brought temps down to below 70 C stable at full load without overclocking. If I were planning on overclocking, I would probably upgrade to a decent water cooler.

$55 for $40 AR.

This one looks pretty decent:

I ordered the water cooling. Thanks I was going to go with an air cooler, but $40 AR for watercooling vs. $23.

eBay bux will be available really soon, so it's like a real discount that you can use in a week.
But I have got a few i5-8600Ks for $250 and they beat 7700K on stock, can be taken as high or higher and Z370 boards are about the same price. I like 2 real cores more than 4x virtual. If you have cheap Z270 - this 7700K still kicks.

Hey guys, I'm still rocking a 2600K. Is this worth the upgrade at this price? It works well for me, but I feel like some of the benchmarks I've read online have said some more modern ones will perform at least 30 to 40 percent better.

8600k is 280...with 6 real cores. I would think a much better value.

I have 7700k gaming max temp at 80 deg C with H7 cpu fan. I didnt want to bother deliding the chip due to its still brand new and the risk im taking. I still have refurb corsair h100iv2 240mm water cooling on sale for $59 sitting around. 7700k on adobe premier do lag on regular hard drive but its very fast on SSD. i was thinking of swaping to 8700k but im good now.

I am also in a similar situation, and after much research, I would hold out till the 8700K hits this price point to consider upgrading.

What's deliding?

What will an 8700k do that this won't?

Fast hard drive makes a big difference. My 10 year old lap is still useable (barely) after installing a SSD. Thinking about an m.2 drive for this build.

Any guesses how much I could sell this build for on CL?

240 gig ssd ($70)
Windows 10 ($45)
Liquid cooled ($40)
I7700k ($252)
Msi z270 gaming m5 ($130)
8 gig ddr4 ($80)
Wifi card (free w mobo)
Cheap case ($20)
Psu ($45)
$682 is what I'm in for before maybe throwing in a video card.

That's what I'm thinking as well. I don't sell my computers I build, I just pass them along to my father when I upgrade, so that's part of the reason I want to upgrade, but I've waited six years, so I feel another year or two is pretty feasible.

Delidding is removing the protective housing from the CPU itself.
