This will be a gaming / Lab PC. - GNS3 - Vmware (Many Virtual Machines) - Cert Prep - Docker - Dev Sandboxing - Some Video Editing
... GAMING! Flight Sim Cities Skylines NMS (I know.. don't judge) And offcourse .. throw any other modern games at it.
I am totally loving my 8700k! I could copy paste specs here, but anyone can just google that. So far .... I have not been disappointed. It runs everything I throw at it, it is not overheating (I have not OCed) and I have experienced 0 hiccups.
Space Engineers for some reason has complained a bit, but it might be a GPU issue (still should not happen with a1070ti though).
So far so good.
