Talking USD?

 

Honestly, there's not much that's really special about the 8086K. I haven't yet seen an 8700K that can't reach 5Ghz with ease, so the supposedly higher binning means nothing to me. I also agree with Linus, if Intel made it actually a special chip in a different way, it might be worth getting. I personally wouldn't recommend it.

Then go ahead imo. 

 

I also agree that it isn't that special but thats a good price for even 8700k and if he's looking for deals then he probably won't be buying 9700k new or sth. Plus 8086k will probably hold value longer.

It's a good deal, but if you won't benefit from it, it's $250 more than you need to spend.

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

Logitech G502

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz
