    8700K is a big hit for Threadripper, better processing/gaming performance with reasonable price.

    I think you got TR4 and AM4 mixed up. TR4 is not focused on gaming and comparing the 6/12 8700K to a 12/24 1920X is not really logical. If you compare it to AM4's R7s. Once both are overclocked, the 8700K @ 5GHz is almost the same as a R7 @ 4GHz. Overall, the 1GHz core speed advantage almost makes up for the core difference but thermals on the 8700K become semi-problematic. Some reviewers peaked at 94*C with the stock paste. Replacing it dropped 20*C down.

    Not at all, the real danger is the I5 - 8400.

    I'd suggest checking all reviews since most seem to contradict Linus. I imagine something is off with his testing. Judging from Paul's vid, the 8400 is basically tied with the 1600 models in games and loses by a decent margin in productivity. The 8600K is a much better option. Not to mention that H370 boards won't come for another 4 months at least and Z370 + 8400 makes no sense since you may as well buy an R7 + B350 for that price

    there will be heatsink change but with so limited spacing and re-using same chassis only thing they could improve on is making CPU vaper cooling as well.

    8700k has a larger die area than 7700k by about 15-20%, using liquid metal delid and vaper chamber might be able to cool off 6cores 5ghz with hyper threading disabled. that or they will also do what they did with GPU cooling, direct cpu heat towards GPU fans.

    Any idea when will clevo begin shipping with 8700k ? Also really concerned about thermals (stock or OC) compared to 7700k OC delided in that relatively small chassis :(

    The chassis has a lot of space. They just are not using it properly.
    End of the day heat sinks won't do much, unless they fix their QC.
