    "This item is a bit too high tech for me but may work for a tech buddy of mine that knows how to build pc's. After I bought my first pc over 20 years ago I would build up my pc to become a stronger more powerful machine but I do not have the time these days."

    "The i7 8700 is one of the best processors that I have bought. This processor is extremely fast and stays cool under maximum loading conditions. "

    "The 8700 from Intel is a great desktop CPU for anyone that wants/needs the performance of Intel's latest offering without the option to overclock. If you need to overclock then go for the K sku (8700K). For some people though they won't ever overclock so they save a bit of money and get this CPU. It's lightning fast and handles everything thrown at it with ease. This is one of the best 6 core CPU's on the market right now."

    "This is the top of the line core out right now. there is nothing faster than the i7 on the market. It is a little on the pricey side but for what you are using for i am sure this is just a fraction of the cost of what it would be to buy it in the PC at a store or online. This thing is a beast of a CPU. "

    "Among the cream of the crop for gaming CPUs. Great single core performance for games that don't use multi threading, which is all games. Great over clocking is possible with this chip, but make sure you get a good cooler to support it. Worth the money if you're willing to spend it."

    "This is a decent for some games. The extra cores can be useful at times but I'd rather have a processor with fewer but more powerful cores. Of course any i7 is pretty much overkill for all current games and applications."

    "If you're on a tight budget trying to get an i7 processor, then The Intel Core i7-8700 Processor is perfect for you. The only limitation is that it is only compatible with motherboards based on the Intel 300 series."

    "I have been waiting to upgrade my CPU for a few years now. I read the specs on the i7-8700, and ordered one. I am one happy customer! This thing cooks! I had it up and running in no time by just going into BIOS and pointing it in the right direction. Easy peasy, and the performance rocks!"

    "This is a good, and very current i7 processor. However, I wouldn't call this a budget i7. There are older and still very capable ones that would cost a fair bit less. This is not my first choice for what I expect to see in the results for my search."

    "I had been looking to get a new gaming pc with tax season around the corner . Their were specs i knew for sure i wanted. mainly 16gb ram a nice video card a new generation Intel i7-8700. For a few years now i have used a gen7 i7. So far the new CPU and PC have been great. Im planing on streaming once i get totally set up and im sure this i7 will give me that extra push with the frame rate. Boot ups are super quick. With a liquid cooling system it stays relativity cool. "
