Nice combo for a good price. Intel i5-8600K is on sale now at Newegg and paired with CM MasterLiquid 240mm liquid RGB cooler combo offers additional savings. If you count CPU at $240 then you get that cooler for just $34 after rebate. ML240L is a nice unit, easy to install, it performs very well, usually allows overclocking to around 4.7-4.8GHz with temps below 60-65C loaded for i7-8700K, with 8600K should be even better. RGB works with or without motherboard headers (in-line control included).

$283.98 - $10 rebate = $273.98 with free shipping

$10 rebate for the cooler:

Combo should be valid for another 3 days I believe.

8600K is pretty much the same as 9600K, the latter does not offer much more than extra 100MHz which is irrelevant after overclock.

Pairs nicely with MSI Z370-A Pro for $80 AR:

Very tempted to build the bundle you suggested. I'm just wondering how much better BF will be.

This seems like a great deal and is making me conflicted on what I should do.

I've been waiting for black friday / holiday sales to buy CPU, Mobo, ram to pair with my GTX 1080 Ti that is being horribly bottlenecked by my current system (i5-3570k, 8gb DDR3, with a 3440x1440 100hz monitor).

I can't find definitive answers online if the 8600k is sufficient for this resolution with a 1080ti, but I am also seeing i7-8700k for sale for $300 at Frys and $314 at B&H with no tax in California. Not sure what to choose, or if I should wait.

This looks like the better deal, no? Not available yet, but the newer version of the CPU.

Those $300 and 314 CPUs you have mentioned are i7-8700, non-K version. It still boosts to around 4.3GHz for all cores, but can't be overclocked. If a particular game can take advantage of more than 6 threads - i7 could be better, if a game cares more about higher clocked few cores - 8600K may win, if you overclock it properly.

Same boat here. It's tempting but my trusty 2500k amazingly still does everything I need... hard to justify upgrading

No.

I'm not upgraded from my 4690k until I can get 8 cores at the same $200 price and over 4ghz.

Are you sure the B&H deal is no tax for CA? I live in WA and the new tax law requires they charge me for tax now. I was just at their B&M store and found out the hard way when I tried to ship something to myself to save on tax... Best to go to checkout to check the tax on that!

Here's Gamer's Nexus with a review of the 8600k vs 8700k and others: https://youtu.be/GJGJ0RzPyL0

Helpful comment, I recently OC'd my 8600k to 5Ghz all cores at 1.35v and it has no stability issues. According to Silicone Lottery, more than 85% of their 8600k samples hit 5Ghz (though they used 1.4v for max stability), so it doesn't appear that it's hard to get one that can do that.

I used Der8auer's guide since he did the OC on my brand of motherboard and it made it easy (this is my first build, first overclock): https://youtu.be/CoUtA7DKXhU

Here's my cooler, fan, and case setup for reference. I put some temperature data in the comments section: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/tbr6Mp

I am holding out as long as I can but I do notice some slowdowns here and there.
