    Is it worth getting the 7700K? I probably won't need to overclock, but I'm wondering if it runs hotter or cooler than the 7700. Also, does the IC Diamond Thermal Compound help at all with temps?

    7700k is pretty hot from what I gather, especially if you don't delid...

    Yes, it has a higher clock and TDP than the 7700 so will run hotter.

    The CPU choice will depend on what you are going to use the computer to do.

    Yes, IC Diamond applied to CPU + GPU will help considerably.

    Also in addition to the above, most people will notice the improvment of the higher TDP and more consistent turbo speeds with the 7700 over the mobile 7700HQ.

    I simply want to game, so I'm leaning towards the 7700. Since it runs much cooler, will it help keep the SLI GPUs from overheating?

    7700hq is BGA, 7700 is LGA and locked down as well. Opt for 7700K. If you are concerned about temp, You shouldn't be that. The only option I will suggest for you.

    If all you do is game the 7700 will get the job done, if you have no desire to tweak.

    Since 6700k runs as cool as 80C max while running on 4.0 GHz compared to 100C when doing 4.2 GHz, I would be curious of 6700 would be cooler in the same conditions when compared to 6700k if 6700k is locked at 4.0 GHz.

    This ponders the same thing though, if 6700 would run too hot, it would be far simpler to just decrease the speed with just a little bit on 6700k than being locked on 6700.
