    i7-8700K vs i5-8600K vs i5-8400 vs R5-1600

    Which would you get? The price difference between a build with 8700K and a 8600K is R$414.31($127.48), 8700K and 8400 is R$812.24($249.92) and 8700K to 1600 is R$1104.99($339.99).

(any lower and it can't even complete a run with cinebench or realbench. Won't boot at 1.2v.) My temps stay at around 75 or so in realbench...

    Proper noob here ;-) My motherboard is a z170x G1 running on a 6700k and it says that its "supports" the 7th gen 7700k, but what i want to know is - can i just install the 7700k without going into the bios at all or will i need to go into the bios first?

    Swiftech or H115i

    I'm really torn on returning my h115i and getting a swiftech. I'm seeing it can provide a decent difference in temp. I'm wondering if it would be better for me running a 7700k. Would it be worth it for me to return the h115 to get a swiftech? When I oc to 5.0 I break the 80c but not by 10c...
