Intel Core i7 8086K, S 1151, Coffee Lake, 6 Core, 12 Thread, 4.0GHz, 5.0GHz Turbo, 12MB Cache, 1200MHz GPU, 95W CPU, Box is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sorry? What's a bott- bottleneck? Is that how you say it? Skip to the bottom if you can't be bothered to read all this:) I suppose as processors go, being expensive and all that, this one sets new boundaries, as described with it's 'limited edition' specs. As the first one Intel produced to reach 5GHz overclock it certainly delivers on what its reputation precedes it with. As you can probably expect, I like my PC games. More specifically, hugely graphically intensive ones. (they have to be fun as well obviously) It probably goes without saying that you really don't need this very high functioning CPU unless you're rendering something on a daily basis or playing intensive games. It's 2019 and I'm still decimating Black Ops III Zombies whenever I get the chance. I use this as an example as it takes a whopping 125GB of hard drive space with all the DLC and therefore was stressful to load up. On top of this my i5 4460 was bottlenecking when playing and sometimes failed to even start up the game. The i7 8086k goes up to 4.2GHz from 4.0GHz base speed when I start it up. Admittedly, I've had to upgrade the motherboard and RAM to get this processor as it's S1151, however my GPU has remained the same. The GPU is almost entirely responsible for loading these intensive games in high graphics, and my GTX 1070 8GB worked a charm doing so. However, an inferior processor in comparison to this powerful GPU doesn't make such a good mix. Aaaaaaaannndddd then there were the bottlenecks. Now, however, this game starts up every time without fail and doesn't bottleneck, GTA V is very similar. Especially with menu screens. A lot of menu screens jarred my FPS before I upgraded but now they don't. The product has a nice exterior packaging, with its sleek Coffee Lake design and feels premium. Just thought I'd also mention in case people hadn't noticed or were upgrading from 4th gen like I did: IT DOESN'T COME WITH ITS OWN FAN LIKE THE MUCH EARLIER ONES. TLDR? Fair enough. To sum it up briefly, it has a great look, runs beautifully and all my intensive games run in their highest settings without jarring FPS. DO NOT BUY THIS JUST FOR EVERY DAY WORK. It's far too expensive for the sake of Microsoft word or whatnot, unless you have a lot of cash to splash. Only buy this for helping your GPU run intensive games or render large video files efficiently. 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for gaming! My sample is able to get to 5.2ghz/1.344V, ASrock z390 Taichi. Cooling it with Scythe Ninja 5 with two Be Quiet SW3/1450 rpm, 120mm fans. For 24/7 I am running it 4.9ghz 1.150V and on this settings benched on OCCT, small data set, I get like 75-77 degrees C when the ambient is 23-24 degrees C. This is really hard test, so in gaming the temps are lower than 70C, which is what I am aiming for! I can run it 5ghz, but I prefer to keep my CPU lower than 70C. If I delid it I am sure I can run it full time 5.2Ghz, something that I can not do with i9 9900k cooled with an air cooler, that's why I went for this one, can easily get to 5.1/5.2Ghz, it can be delidded easier than i9 9900k if needed, and it can be handled better than its bigger brother with an air cooler. Cheers!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Is same as i7 8700k on performance is same as i7 8700k on money is 150 pounds more .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent CPU for everything. This CPU really is a powerhouse. It is pretty expensive, but you get what you pay for. It is very close to the 8700k, but slightly quicker. Easily deals with Video, Image and Audio rendering, Gaming and everything else I throw at it. Its very quick and efficient.

Is this compatable with the gigabyte ga-Z170X GAMING G1 MOTHERBOARD

Compatible RAM

In the cpu specs it says Max Memory speed DDR4 2066? So if i install DDR4 4000 RAM, it would only run at 2066?

That's up to the motherboard, not the CPU
