Only reason to buy this is fanboyism. In case anyone interested in this is unaware, all it is is top tier i7 8700k silicon. In fact, you can get a guaranteed 5ghz delidded 8700k from silicon lottery that will have better thermals and performance on par with this 8086K for the same price or slightly less. This is essentially a collectors' item.

This isn't really a deal, but thanks for sharing it anyway.

edit: I might get this. not happy with my 8700k, the thing can't even get above 4.2 it doesn't even hit the 4.7... as advertised single core boost.

Though on a more serious note. An 8086K binned to 5.0 GHz on stock TIM (thermal interface material) directly from intel is going to clock better than 8700K third party binned to 5.0 GHz delidded on liquid metal since the liquid metal intrinsically allows a better overclock. Ofc, this requires that you then take the 8086K and delid it yourself if you want to actually beat the binned 8700K. You're right that it's mostly a fanboyism thing, but if you're a super enthusiast and want the absolute most performance possible, the 8086K is a marginally better bet for higher clocks. Personally, I'm waiting a generation or two for spectre and meltdown to get hardware fixed before I dump more money on an Intel system (currently running 7700K for gaming, 1950X for workstation).

Still tho, this is more of a notification for something cool, than it is a deal. Expect TDs...

There is something grossly wrong with your motherboard settings if that's the case. Did you flash to the most recent bios on your motherboard? Did you look at vcore? Did you check the multiplier? If you literally just put the chip in and turned it on that doesn't always work.

One very good way to test and see if you're actually getting corespeed is to run a PassMark test

Probably related to the toothpaste used by Intel under the spreader. Better off purchasing an AMD Ryzen 2xxx than wasting time overclocking a chip with security flaws that once patched drops performance dramatically or having to waste money on an out of spec space heater that's already antiquated with its whopping 6 threads (8086k).

Intel still blows amd away in everyday activities and threadripper isn't a fair comparison, since it costs double or more of the price.

Also 8086k doesn't have just 6 threads.... and experts say all cpus likely have security issues similar to spectre and meltdown, that intel's are simply the first to get disclosed.
