If I got a 2700X and overclocked it this much the board would likely run into thermal shutdown. I'm holding off on fitting the monoblock until I get one of the new 7nm cpus, but I have one sitting here ready. The monoblock is half price because it's basically on clearance, eventually they won't be available anymore.
When will the new 7nm CPUs be released?
