I7 7700k or wait and buy into zen2

It official my oc as taking a toll on my i5 6500 killing the 4th core. Currently running 3 cores 3 thread at 4.3ghz. But games are hanging at worst times.
So I have a Asus z170 gaming pro. 16gb ram spec at 2400 but oc to 2600ish via black oc. Gtx 1080 ftw.

Should I just pick up a i7 7700k or switch platforms and grab zen2 (thinking 3700x With mid range x570mobo)?

Almost always for gaming not so much productivity. Have messed around with streaming in past might consider getting back into it.
