Great but runs hot

Submitted on Monday, November 06, 2017

Strengths of the product

The 7700k is a very fast CPU with an unlocked multiplier. The high clock speed is great for gaming. The Fallout 4 high textures pack recommends at least a 6 core CPU, but this will handle it with no problems.

Weaknesses of the product

Runs very hot compared to previous gen Intel chips. If you're going to overclock you'll need a high end air cooler or a liquid cooler. I get between 25 ~ 30° C idle using a Corsair H115i cooler. These chips are very inconsistent when it comes to overclocking capabilities. Around 75% of these can achieve 4.9GHz and 50% can get to 5.0GHz. These also require a shockingly high voltage for a stable overclock.

Additional Comments

If you're looking at an 1151 CPU and Z270 chipset - be warned that the 1151 v2 CPUs (ex. 8700K) are NOT compatible with Z270 motherboards. I run mine at 4.8GHz and during a stress test it will peak in the mid 80's. Realistically you won't see that if you're gaming, but it's still hotter than preferred. I've heard of people "de-lidding" them and the temp drops anywhere between 10-25C. Get yourself a closed loop liquid cooler for this.

Amazing!

Doesn't run hot at all in my experience. 15% overclock on air cooling. never goes above 55 C

Weaknesses of the product

None that I can tell

Strengths of the product

Awesome single thread and good multi-threadwd performance. Unlocked Processor. 5Ghz overclock is not too difficult with the right cooling...

Weaknesses of the product

-Expensive -Runs very hot -No cooler

Additional Comments

The thermal application between the chip and the heat-spreader is awful. "De-lidding" the chip to remove the stock paste and decrease the gap between the two is very common for this CPU. However I really don't feel like taking an exacto knife to my 500$ CPU just to achieve proper temps. 5Ghz @ 1.35 volts = temp spikes into the 90's with a Kraken X62 AIO liquid cooler. Poor quality control from Intel.

Fantastic!

Strengths of the product

Incredibly fast! Upgraded to the 7700K from a 2600K and the speed differences are noticeable in many games, especially Starcraft 2. Was debating between this and a Ryzen 1800X but after deciding on the 7700K I'm incredibly happy.

Weaknesses of the product

No cooler included and not many people recommend air. You'll need to invest in a decent AIO water cooling solution to keep the temps down.

Additional Comments

Fantastic CPU just budget for a water cooling solution and not an air cooler.

very fast,

Weaknesses of the product

run 10 passes Intel burn test Extreme settings at stock clocks, H105 cooler, 77.c not much head room for a overclock

Additional Comments

great chip,10$ less than the 6700k,cant go wrong,

Fast 8-thread Processor

Strengths of the product

I was pleasantly surprised by the speed increase compared to my previous Intel Core i7-2600K processor. While not magnitudes faster, it is noticeably faster when compiling using 8 threads.

Weaknesses of the product

Does not include a stock CPU cooler. Works well with and is very quiet with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler.

Additional Comments

Good solid CPU w/ Integrated GPU for my software development needs.
