Yea, that's true; however, I just noticed i have the option of getting the 9600k for about $20 more, which is less than with the 8600k, than if I got the 2700. Would this be a slightly better option?

the 9th gen is a complete joke all around, same IPC as 8th gen, the solder still isn't as good as liquid metal either. It is better than the 8th gen TIM.

But I'd still stick to ryzen for the cheaper price or more versatile CPU

As the title says, just tell me the recommended mobos for a 2700 oced to its max (around 4.2 Ghz or higher if possible)

Any of the X470 boards are fine aside from the ASUS TUF one maybe.

If you want to do more extreme overclocking then buy like the crosshair or gaming 7 or taichi

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

Depends on how much of a budget you have, it will mostly come down to power delivery such as the Vcore VRM for how well you can overclock. There are a few decent b3/450 mobos for overclocking, and a decent amount of x3/470 for overclocking.

@Streetguru @TheDankKoosh @Firewrath9 @JM21 So for a low budget like $100, there aren't really any good ones for the 2700 when doing high overclocking? If there aren't any that you would recommend, that is fine; I would rather spend more than get a shite mobo

Save up $20 and buy any of the MSI X470 boards they're usually cheap

Or find a used X370 Crosshair board since you can upgrade the bios over USB without a CPU.

adding more power from more cores starts to add issues

The x470 asrock fatality k4 and the x470 gigabyte aorus ultra gaming are fine, but for 50$ more, you can get the gaming 5 wifi which is a great mobo and comes with wifi.

The b450 tomahawk is the best of all the b-series boards for it's VRM, but if you want the best overclocking possible while also not killing your wallet, then I would go with the gaming pro carbon x470.

the VRM looks the same as the cheaper MSI X470 boards, dunno if it's actually the same though.

The pro carbon has an actual 5 phase with a good heatsink, it's actually buildzoid's favorite x470 that's under $200, it's missing bclk overclocking but overall it will handle a fully maxed out 8 core.

Only a 5 phase? I would prefer 4x2.

the gaming 5  has 4x2+3 and gaming 7 has 10+2 real phases.

 

gigabyte is making some sweet z390 boards tho.

@TheDankKoosh @Streetguru @Firewrath9 Oh, many options. Well, I know you guys didn't intentionally do this, but the decision is a lot harder now lol. I am debating between an i5 8600k build and a ryzen 7 2700 build, but I want the most frames I can get since I will be getting a 144hz monitor and I am honestly stuck. I looked at benchmarks of each oced and the difference is pretty big in some games but small in others with the 8600k being in the lead at all of them. The price difference for each build will be about $40, but I have to choose a cpu by tonight. Any help lol?

If you wanted a 6 core buy the cheaper R5 1600 or R5 2600

If you need more cores for streaming/recording/rendering/whatever then just buy the R7 8 core

 

the R7 2700 is a more versatile CPU in general, and comes with good solder as a nice bonus so it runs cooler out of the box.

Well, I want more frames lol, that's why I'm going with the 2700 or an 8600k. My main goal is the most amount of frames I can get, which sounds dumb but I am getting a 144hz monitor and I wanna make the most use out of it

I doubt you'd really notice the increase in frames an 8600K would give you over ryzen in general, especially over the money saved with an R5 2600, the 2700 isn't much faster for gaming than the 6 core.


And if you were sticking to intel you should probably get the i7 8700 instead of the 8600K, so you have the extra threads if you need them, but I'd stick to ryzen for the cheaper/more cores

Yea, that's true; however, I just noticed i have the option of getting the 9600k for about $20 more, which is less than with the 8600k, than if I got the 2700. Would this be a slightly better option?

the 9th gen is a complete joke all around, same IPC as 8th gen, the solder still isn't as good as liquid metal either. It is better than the 8th gen TIM.

But I'd still stick to ryzen for the cheaper price or more versatile CPU
