    I will be testing it, my mate has preodered it. With enough luck he will let me try it on my tornado f5 before I put it in his desktop system.

    I think @Talon will try it for giggles, but the processor will ultimately end up in his desktop PC. I would only get one under two conditions: 1) I can buy a binned example that undervolts as well as my 8086K for less than $350 and 2) Intel announces that this will be the last series of desktop chips to use socket 1151. I hold out hope that we'll see a 10th- or 11th-generation CPU that will be 10c/20t or 12c/24t.

    This was a happy accident. I was doing some benchmarking and my machine was actually failing the stress test, scoring less than 94%. That wasn't right because it passed previous runs at around 97.1%. It turns out that for whatever reason Afterburner was not using the voltage profile I had set. No matter what I did, I couldn't get it to load, so I had to bite the bullet and recreate it. I went with a slightly more aggressive undervolt, and you see the result, which by the way was without using the fans at maximum speeds.

    You don't want to put a 10 or 12 core CPU in your Tornado do you!? Although would they be on a die shrink & therefore consume less watts for their number of cores? An 8 core beast is surely upgrade enough for your Tornado, you'd be doubling up on cores - that's solid! Hell, 8700K with their six cores is a fantastic achievement!

    I think I will settle with my 8700K now for a long time as I see scores of 9900K having only a 6% to 15% advantage over it depending on the task from some youtube videos. Gaming being a primary function of my machine and media creation, 8700K I see it as it fits the bill nicely. Now it's a matter of days before I install it in my laptop then run the benchmarks.
