Or you could be smart and get an 8700K and a good cooler for less and overclock it. Just my humble opinion... and common sense. It is cool as a collectible, but on paper it isn't worth the price premium.

Exactly. Without a change to the TIM, this is just a binned 8700k.

I wouldn't be surprised if it will be sold out in less than a month despite just a money grab.
I can't blame the buyers, this will be Intel's best consumer chip for a while till 1st quarter of next year.

...at least there are ways, not necessarily easy ones, to get Ryzen and Threadripper to work on W7.
