Product information: Core i7-7700K 4.2GHz (Kaby Lake) Socket LGA1151 Processor - RetailIntel Kaby Lake is Skylake perfected with improved performance clock for clock and vastly superior overclocking ability on K series processors. Intel's 7th generation processors use the S1151 socket and are compatible with Intel Z100 and Z200 Series chipset motherboards such as Z170 and Z270.
In our own testing here at OcUK HQ in our technical labs our very own 8 Pack has being overclocking these processors as high as 5.2GHz on good air cooling and AIO setups, moving to a full blown water cooling loop helps further lower temperatures and improve stability when pushing beyond 5GHz. On more serious hardcore cooling by professionals and overclocking champions such as Overclockers UK very own 8 Pack as high as 7GHz has being seen. Of course overclocking is not guaranteed but we do have some 8 Pack and 8 Pack approved bundles and systems where you can order with CPU overclocks guaranteed as high a 5.2GHz for a premium.
This is a retail boxed processor and comes with Intel 3yr warranty and is un-opened and brand new, so your overclocking mileage is down to yourself and luck of the draw but Kabylake promises to push the envelope the furthest yet when it comes to frequencies making them ideal for games and applications that require outright pure MHz performance and they still have incredible multi core performance as well.
