Make sure you select a compatible motherboard for your chosen CPU.

Intel Core i7 Socket 1151 Coffee Lake Processors

These Intel 8th generation Core i7 Coffee Lake 6-core processors have more cache memory than the Core i5s and also support HyperThreading, allowing them to work on up to 12 threads simultaneously. A Core i7 is the ideal choice for a high-end PC and is much faster than a Core i5 when it comes to rendering videos and multi-threaded calculations thanks to having six physical cores plus six HyperThreading cores.

Please Note: Despite using the same LGA1151 socket as 7th & 6th Gen. CPUs, ONLY Intel Z370 Motherboards are compatible with these 8th Gen. 'Coffee Lake' CPUs.
