Don't have any regrets, though, as it seems to do gaming just fine for me (not gonna argue the "more is better" debate, but I'm satisfied).

I recall reading the non-X and X SKUs might be binned for different leakage characteristics (among other things). My 1600 can do 3.9 on air, but the voltage efficiency is garbage after 3.7 or so. The stock frequencies and turbo bins seem to be selected with efficiency in mind for the non-X chips. If the X SKUs are indeed more "leaky", that could explain higher maximum overclocks (along with better quality silicon, of course). Can't find a source for that, so take with a grain of salt.

To stall AMD's momentum and win back some mind share. Their goal was not to sell chips, but to dissuade consumers from buying AMD chips now with the promise of something better in near future (like a carrot on a stick). This wouldn't work if they didn't have a better product (for gaming, at least), of course. So, basically marketing.

I thought these were guaranteed to have a Vcore below 1.4V?

Newbie to O/C -
Getting a new 8700-K desktop for video editing.
Planned config
Asus Prime Z370-A
32 GB DDR4 3200
Samsung 960 M.2 250GB (OS and Programs)
Corsair H115i water cooling
Would like to see all cores near 5Ghz
What are your impressions of Asus Prime m/boards?
All comments welcome Thanks

Went ahead and did a preorder with ShopBLT.com as the end of October seems better than any other sites current forecast, the ~$25 because we can tax is disappointing though. Has anyone dealt with them before on preorders/back order situations?

I have seen you say this many times and fully understand.

Try to not worry too much. Its possible they saw that the CPU went cool with higher voltages so it might perform just great at this voltage. Altho I would have expected an explanation coming along the CPU.

Good video. There's no doubt this CPU is the absolute best gaming CPU available, and this won't change anytime soon.

Ring bus ftw.
If we see 8 cores on mainstream next year it's probably mesh and gaming perf will be like 7820X aka inferior to 8700K, even with OC'ed mesh.
