And if you are not in the 80% but the 20%, what happens then

Just like the 48%, Complain, whine, cry loudly and ultimately take Asus to court...

putting a 360 and a 120 rad in a water loop to keep it cool should be enough, it worked for my 2500k

well

Calling a 5GHz overclock phenomenal seems exaggerated. It's just 11% over the 4.5GHz. Guess I'll wait for the Ryzen.

Looking at the benchmarks in gaming, a 5Ghz overclock on a 7700K compared to a 4.6Ghz overclock on a 6700K is basically nothing. I'd rather pick up a 6700K second-hand, stick it at 4.6Ghz and have less heat to dissipate. As an alternative to that, if you can hit 4.7Ghz with a 7700K at something like 1.2V, that would be more interesting to me. The difference between 4.7Ghz and 5Ghz for gaming is .5 of a frame. Completely pointless. 5Ghz would be cool to put in your signature and tell your mates, but if 80% have a 5Ghz overclock, it's not such an elusive number any more, is it? If you're benchmarking then obviously aim for 5Ghz and beyond, but for an average system I wouldn't bother with it.

I couldn't agree with you more! Up to the point where I wonder why Kaby Lake exists. They could've easily waited for Cannonlake, but it seems they just wanted to put something out there.

You put on your man pants and do real overclocking.
