It was released by Intel as a limited edition CPU. (costing an additional $100.00 bucks)
The i7-8086 model number is a nod to the original 8086 CPUs released many years ago.

Some say that it's a binned i7-8700K.
It will supposedly run at 5.0GHz. easily.

I confirm, mine is at 5ghz on all cores (with no avx offest) 1.3v max temps 63c after 15 minute OCCT with AVX capable Linpack. VRM's barely touching 70c.

And its roasting here in Paris, still 23c and its 1am in the morning.

I upgraded from a 6700k to a 8700k (including motherboard) and didn't do a fresh install after and Windows hasn't had any issues. Surprising because even on the loved Windows 7 a fresh install would have been very much needed. But since no issues have happened, I follow the if ain't broke don't fix it

That would only happen if you changed the motherboard. Which you did.

So hopefully you were logged in with a Microsoft account before upgrading. The digital Windows key would have been linked to your account, and when you go to the settings to activate windows, you would log in and it would confirm its an upgraded PC and activate.

If you did not do that. Log in with a Microsoft account and then call support. tell them you upgraded and etc.

I did this and they asked for my old Windows 7 key and I gave it to them(because I upgraded for free to Win 10) and they turned it into a Windows 10 key. So I could enter it and activate windows. Took a while though to get it all done. About 15-20 minutes because they make you go through the initial troubleshooting methods before giving you basically a free key.

A week here.



Once all the wee scrots go back to whence they came. Going to take the bike, and enjoy the steam room, sauna and pool etc. Then do some fine dining in Milford On Sea. Only this time I won't have a whining beyotch saying "I don't like it here. I don't like it here. Why did you bring me here?" etc.
