A beast. Enough and awesome for non-fanatic with big purposes.

Great CPU. Does everything I need it too. Went with Non-K because I just use it for gaming, there was no need to spend the extra $$. A++

It is really a powerful CPU! It can run up to 4.7GHz. I had trouble to decide between this and AMD CPUs. 1600x with mobo costs me around 280. It will cost me 70 more to use 1700, or same price as this if I use 1800x. Given Node202 is such a small case, lower TDP is better. Overall 8700 gives me better performance, lower TDP, stable platform. Plus, I like the mobo has 8 USB ports at rear. I need use a couple of external HDD, USB drive, wireless keyboard, wireless mouse. 8700k is overpriced at the moment, without overclocking, there is really no difference to 8700.

Works as intended, don't plan to overclock or anything so i got the non K version, plus I'm no programmer or heavy software user. Its enough for my gaming needs and Internet entertainment.

I knew that I wouldn't have much interest in overclocking but I still wanted a hyperthreaded Coffee Lake processor which left me with only one real choice. The 8700 is basically an 8700K at stock settings except my cores only reach 4.6 GHz as opposed to 4.7 GHz on the 8700K. Installation was super easy and it has absolutely met my expectations so far.

My only recommendation for anyone interested in this chip is to buy an aftermarket cooler! Even though its locked, the turbo frequencies can still warm things up quite a bit and the stock cooler is pretty ugly!

Nothing to say against the processor.

Stock cooler that comes with it is noisy. Get an aftermarket cooler instead (at this point, ask yourself if you still want to go with a non-K processor ....)
