With the modern-day processors coming over with great overclocking abilities, we now have multiple options for modifying things up. The Intel Core i7-8700K has already broken all records of fame and some of the famous retailers are already offering pre-binned chips. With the option of pre-binning, the retailers are also found selling the de-lidded chips which come along with out of the box processing capabilities of 5.2 GHz and a new heat spreader made of 99.9% silver. Why? Because people love overclocking!
The New Heatsreaders
Here’ a picture of the new heat spreaders posted on Facebook by one of the most talented OCs in the community, Der8auer. The guy shows a batch of the all-new heat spreaders which is here to replace the stock IHS and also stock TIM with liquid metal.
Der8auer reveals the future plans of the manufacturing company which includes a LGA2066 heat spreader too! Take this with a pinch of salt as we don’t have any dates about this one. The 8700Ks by Caseking have a range of clock speeds between 4.8 to 5.2 GHz and it comes in three editions:
- Pro Edition
- Advanced Edition
- Ultra Edition
Be warned with the price tag as the best of these comes at a hefty price of 870 EUR!
