Looks like this installed

Thanks for the info. I may give it another look, as well as the other large coolers.

So basically if the software can take advantage of the extra cores than the Ryzen performs better. I'm still thinking I want to go Intel. Thanks for the info. Anyone else have some feedback on this build?

As someone who owns a 7700K, although it runs a bit hotter then the 7600K I'd say be prepared to be limited with your overclocking without delidding the chip. I can go up to about 1.264-1.28 volts with my cooler before I run out of thermal headroom (Cryorig R1 Ultimate). This gets me 4.9 Ghz and I think my chip is a little better then average. I'm not sure because at that voltage Im hitting 87 C max core temp in Asus Realbench so I cant go any further until I delid. In games that sees me hitting nearly 80C max at times in TW Warhammer, and XCOM 2 which are the most CPU intensive games I'm playing at the moment.

Some people seem to have much better IHS mounts on their chips then me, but also some have much worse. Theres been a few cases with people struggling to cool Kaby Lake chips at stock voltages with coolers like the Cryorig H7, and the Arctic I32. If youre unlucky and get one with a stock VID over 1.25 volts you might even find yourself needing to undervolt the chip at stock with a smaller cooler.

I've been recommending people to take the Ryzen R5 as well TBH, in games it doesnt lose out to the Ryzen 1800X at all for much cheaper.

I think the 7700K has a place as the absolute best gaming CPU right now but the I5 7600K will start to show its age much faster if youre wanting to keep it a few years. Have a look at how the 7600K fairs against the 7700K in recent gaming benchmarks, and make your own judgement on how impriotant having more then 4 threads is becoming.

Of course its up to you, just wanted to let you know what you might be in for smile.gif

Thanks for the advice.

Based on the feedback so far, I decided to start a thread in the AMD general section. May the best build win!

EDIT: Ended up going with AMD, you can view my thread here.
