honestly, Overclocking the 7700K is nice and easy - as it should be.
Nah, I did, but you remember the oddities with the first 5820k/Gaming 7 setup, then going through 3 Strix boards and 2 6900k's being killed by those Strix boards (stacks of newegg reviews saying the same)...@djgar
was one of the lucky ones that never had problems.
Nothing I ever did to them, I've actually hammered the 7700k more than the x99 systems strangely enough.
I went to the shops came back to find my Strix/6900k powered off and dead....twice... It died doing nothing
I'm sure they'll bring that stability/rigidity of z170/z270 to x299 though
I know what I'll be doing for the Skylake-X though, none of these mid ranged boards, straight for a Rampage, it was the midrange x99 boards that gave me grief.
