Lowest by $50+ that i could find any model of 8th gen core i7 and a compatible motherboard shipped for a build unless I missed something

If you dont want or care to overclock this is a pretty good start

The i7 8700 is already a monster...sure you could overclock just for the heck of it, but no need....this is extremely tempting...

1000% agreed i feel no need to overclock this even being a techie im programmed to want to. The Z board isnt even required but at this price ur not paying to get it, (motherboard comes out to $66 ) plus the fact theres not many other non Z 300 series choices anyway yet

there are zero non z 300 boards until supposedly sometime in Q1 so anytime now, but this board is also an odd choice. its a very basic z board with not many features at all basically for someone who only cares to have the ability to OC and nothing more....except this particular chip.... can't .....overclock, so yeah. .

Looks like it's the locked 8700, not the 8700k but I'm still tempted. I think it might be an upgrade from my 2009 i7-920. LMAO

An 8700 is about 7% slower than a non-overclocked 8700K due to slower base and turbo clocks.
Just thought I'd mention that since some people seem to think an 8700 = unoverclocked 8700K, but that's not the case.
For gaming, an unoverclocked 8600K is actually a little faster than an 8700.

Yes, what i meant is that you could instead get the k version for $ more and overclock it, but this is already a beast, so no need to pay more

Yes agreed, for a machine thats also primarily/equally used for heavy gaming id go K

3.2 to 4.6 w/boost
vs
3.7 to 4.7 w/boost

Its a valid point, i just see the .5 base difference being kinda negligible for non gaming and even casual gaming if the machine is multi purpose better off with the 8700

You still get ALOT more cores / threads if your using it for other stuff like media editing / creative / etc tho.

for the two components involved, not a bad price. the point about the k version being 10 bucks more is still a decent one, however. but you wont find a k version combo for nearly this price.

I am probably going with the standard 8700, too, because I don't feel comfortable overclocking, some say I should not even go above a i3 or i5 to begin with.... so dont need to push an i7, and I dont want the extra heat.

I MAY do 4k video editing at some point is why I am even wanting something as good as the 8700.... and then will need a decent gpu. Was going to get a 1050 ti, but that seems hard to find now for a good price, so maybe there is something else in that "ok" range?

That was the one reason i can't decide on 8700 vs 8700k is wal mart had (has?) the 8700k for barely over $310.

Only review on the mobo, though, is 2 stars.
