imho overclocking a 6core is a serious matter, heat alone wouldn't be cooled by some cheapo aircooler.
i7-6800k , i7-5820k, i7-4930k, i7-3930K all were 6 core 12 thread CPUs.

If you mean by a 150W TDP 120mm fan cooler I could understand, but if a 200-250W TDP rated dual tower or 140mm single tower , on par with a 240 or 280 AIO +/- 5°C?

According to this coffee lake will be compatible with z170-z270 mobos

In my mind, there's only 3 processors worth buying in the mainstream Core series for each generation: The i7-K and i5-K for overclockers, and the i5-x5xx (e.g. 4570, 6500, 7500) for non-overclockers. The 2 OC chips are obvious, and the x5xx non-OC chip is the best balance of clock speed and price for those who aren't overclocking.

An H-series mobo + i5-x5xx really is the best and most cost-effective set-and-forget Intel solution available for those building systems for their less-technical friends. Just slap one together with a pre-overclocked GPU from your preferred vendor (e.g. an EVGA "SSC" model) and off you go. No need to worry if Skippy will know how to adjust the settings or anything then.

Could not agree more on this concept. Did something similar to this for a friend recently but with the older 1155 platform. It did help that his cherished games are mostly from Steam including DOTA 2.

As for these new Intel chips, is this really it? The competition is actually heating up? God I hope we have a price war between the two giants. It's a win-win for all of us! biggrin.gif

They were the ones saying it'll require a 1151V2 socket a few weeks ago. WCCFTech is questionable to say the least, constantly repeating rumours from reddit and tech forums and making them look like facts.

Yeah you cannot trust wt.ftech ever just posting articles on both side of the fence.My personal opinion is that intel will not support Z170/Z270 with CFL just my opinion.No need for Z370 launch with CFL if backwards compatability is supported.But Intel may decide mindshare is more important than margains and make a good decision for their customers.
post #306 of 6316
To my knowledge & info, Z270 support is set in stone, Z170 remains a mystery.
post #307 of 6316
I'm wondering about what Z370, or Z390? smile.gif Will bring to the table compared to Z270.

What if CFL CPU's just fit in current Z170 and Z270 boards. Has Intel spoken of a new chipset?

Z370 is coming.
What is brought to the table ?

Kind of pointless updates ( maybe meaningful for those who think that RAIDing for example 3 m.2 SSDs will bring higher real-life SOHO performance uplifts biggrin.gif )

Haha. Yeah probably.

I just don't see what Z270 is lacking, that Z370 will improve on.

Z270 gave us 4 more PCIe 3.0 lanes compared to Z170 and Optane support. Optane is pretty much pointless for consumers with SSD AFAIK.

What defo is coming with the 300 series chipset is native WiFi and BlueTooth, along with native USB3.1 support. What else idk.
The whole Z370/390 think is just a rumor so far and if I remember correctly it comes from financial analysts and not tech people. It states that Intel won't get the 300 features ready in time so release Z370 along with the first chips and the fully featured Z390 later with the rest of CFL.
