I want to upgrade my i56600k but I'm not sure what my options are. is the i7 7700k an option and what would my best bet for gaming be if paired with GTX 1070 without swapping mobos.

thanks

also that is a H170 motherboard, those are not able to support overclock so you are basically thinking about paying more for a cpu thats not gonna out perform the 7700. which is the cpu id get. you get stuttering in bf1? I had that with my 6600K

Is the i7 7700 compatible with an h170? I really Dont want to change motherboards. And ya i always get stuttering in bf1, one of the reasons i want an upgrade ( and for bf5).

Anything really, i know its not absolutely necessary but the bf5 beta was unplayable. I wwant to try to hit 180fps (my refresh rate) in some games, Any that get close are always CPU bottlenecked.
 
Yes, H170 motherboards support a 7700K (with a BIOS update).

As said above, you won't be able to overclock, which is the primary purpose for getting a 'K' CPU. That being said, even without overclocking the 7700k will be ~10% faster than the 7700.
