I´m able to run core at 5,1 Ghz, cache at 4,9 Ghz with 1,36V (delidded) so i´m really happy with this piece of sillicon and it´s total gaming monster.

Awesome. Specifically put my build off a few months for it, definitely worth it in my opinion. I feel like my PC will keep up for much longer than if I had gone with my original plan of a i7-7700K. Not overclocked yet, but stays much cooler than I expected (idle around 25C, gaming around 55C, and highest I saw was with Prime 95 it was around 65C), so I may put an all core clock at 4.7 and see how it goes.

Great Cpu, you can't say otherwise; but the low stocks give it a premium feel, at the premium cost of up to 150 Aud, or 134 Usd over the MSRP . Besides that, its a great overclocker, as long as you get rid of that toothpaste they put on the heat spreader, if you want to void the warranty. I have not delidded and are not planning to any time soon.

EDIT: Corrected very hot, to inherently warm.

No regrets here, but admittedly the chip is inherently warm. Although a major contributing factor to this is my board.

The i7-8700k was the obvious choice because it offered the best middle ground from two worlds, Gaming and Productivity. Its Multi-Threaded performance is within margin of error of the productivity inclined AMD Ryzen 7 series chips and its single-threaded performance is vastly superior to what any other chip is capable of offering today.
