Title says most, I'm wondering if I'll notice any improvement folding from making this move. I have some extra cash, was wondering if making this move would be worthwhile. I plan to get my hands on a nice pci-e x4 ssd while I'm at it, I'm sure that won't make a folding difference, but just wanted to make it clear folding performance isn't my only thought.

Not at all. Kabylake is just Skylake for overclockers and delidders.

EDIT:

I am a complete fool. I didn't read your thread properly. Still, it is true that the shift to kaby lake is a lot of money (CPU + mobo + RAM)



Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Well, objectively there will be a performance improvement. But it's not enough to turn unplayable frame rates into playable frame rates, or playable frame rates to smooth frame rates. Especially when considering that you have a GTX 1070 and an overclocked i5 4670k. It won't make a noticeable difference, that would make you glad to have paid for a new CPU, motherboard, and DDR4 RAM.

Here's a great video comparing the i7s in games, from Sandy Bridge to Skylake (note that Kabylake makes no IPC improvement over Skylake, just clock speed):

From benchmarks, we can conclude that upgrading to the latest platform does not yield significantly higher frame rates. And remember, you are buying a new CPU, a new motherboard, and DDR4 RAM if you upgrade to Kaby Lake.

Even if the upcoming Ryzen chips from AMD are as good as Kaby Lake, there won't be a need to upgrade.

Of course this all depends on whether or not you personally think the improvement shown in the benchmarks is worth it.

Link won't work for me either. But Googling "gamers nexus i5 7600k review" made it work. The review links to this video review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQHlMLgqMT8

Also, please see my previous post - I completely misread your thread but the advice is still similar.
