Default Z370

Anyone playing around with Coffee Lake? I am debating on upgrading my 2nd gaming specific PC. I am running a 6600k in my office, but this one is a little older and needs an update.

Current specs
i5-4670K
16G DDr3 ram
MSI Z87-G45

I already have a 1080TI I would use, and SSD..... I do not want to mess with my office PC so I think upgrading the 4670k is the way to go. So who is using this setup, and what did you upgrade from? Will I see any difference over my 6600k?

Upgraded from a 4670k to a Ryzen. Best decision ever. Major performance increase and I have future options.

I am not interested in the Ryzen route. AMD and I have had our negative rounds in the past.

I've been on the intel boat for a while. Unfortunately these new Intel chips are grossly overpriced for what they are, so I decided to jump ship and try the new AMD chips. I went in, expecting to be disappointed, but was blown away by the performance I get for less than $200.

To each their own, I can't really comment on coffelake, they do seem to overclock well.

I agree that they are over priced...
