In the related listings? Not sure, I bet it changes per location because of local availability at a given Fry's.

Yeah 200 dollars for a locked 7700 is still pretty bad value imo. Intel never lowers the prices on their cpus even when they are super old. You will never see the kind of deals you can get on ryzen based systems.

A 7700 still games better than Ryzen, $200 is an improvement over coffee lake as well that's for sure.

If that were legit I'd have one already. The only cheap CPUs I'm willing to wager on from china are old server bits, although it's probably worth looking into because my brother needs an upgrade from his i5 7400.

Tbh, I wouldn’t mind a 7400 for the clockspeed boost

I know these processors will work in "unlocked" motherboards, but am I still correct that the power limits (PL1/PL2 or Long/short package power limits) can not be changed at all on these?  Or do power limit overrides work on these but the multipliers are fully fixed and locked (can't even change turbo boost), although you can downclock?

 

(that being said, hard to see how these would exceed 95W anyway).

(that being said, hard to see how these would exceed 95W anyway).

The multipliers are fixed but you can BCLK overclock on any Z or X series board. I figured a CPU like this also serves as an excellent upgrade for someone who started off with a B250 or H270 board and could use the extra threads, so overclocking isn't really a must.

The 7700k overclocked to 5ghz? Yeah by a good margin. A locked 7700? I am going to have to disagree on that one. The max turbo is at 4.2 and I am not even sure if that is all cores. The 7700 is not competitive with a decent ryzen processor. I would pick a r5 2600 over that thing any day of the week.

An "average" good price for the 7700 (non k) is 230 on ebay. So while this was a deal... it wasn't a HUGE deal.

It's nice because it comes with a warranty, and you get to unbox it.

Yes it was. You won't find this CPU at that price brand new on eBay anytime soon. Used all day long at that price but not brand new and sealed. I've been checking all the time for the past few months. I've seen maybe a couple brand new ones go for around $230 lately but it's definitely not an "average" everyday price. They sell for $270-$350 left and right. Someone OBVIOUSLY bought dozens of them for that $200 price tag and you can bank on them reselling them right back to eBay. I'll return to this post in a week or two with the resellers listings.

Not that great of a deal imo since the boards aren't that cheap and performance isn't that amazing for the money. Ryzen is a better deal. 

 

Older used i7s are super cheap with boards and RAM and perform very close to Kaby Lake 

That's an F in the profile pic

What about a free board? Had mine for 2 years now. Been wanting to upgrade my i5 for just a few months but haven't yet not only because of the price but because the upgrade won't exactly do much for me since I know how to just get rid of any tiny bottlenecks I run into. An i7-7700 is only gonna enable me to do more things at once. Maybe a 15% fps boost, if that, in gaming.

Well if you have a free board sure but it's not every day you just get a free board

I just already own my board. So this deal was perfect for me basically. It could have been worth it in certain games but it's just not something I really need to do. That's all I ever think about when I have a chance to pull the trigger on an i7-6700 or i7-7700 for around $250 brand new. Now when I seen that this $200 sold out, it sort of pisses me off because I most likely would have bought it and because my i5 I know I can get $125-$150 for, easy. Possibly around $160-$175 if I'm patient about it. My i5 SHREDS 1080p gaming, does a hell of a job in 1440p and can even dabble in 4k. It will sell in no time.

 

This means I would have gotten this $200 i7-7700 for $25-$50 if you think about it. THAT pisses me off big time.

I see. I was in the same boat with a 6600 and I just picked up my current i7 setup with high end board, lots of RAM and an AIO for a shade over $200. To each his own
