Intel sells the K (UNLOCKED) because they know 'enthusiasts' overclock them. It's not for everyone, but if your not going to, then don't buy the K. The benifit of non-k is it comes with cooling and you can get away with cheaper mainboard.

As long as I get 60+fps I am happy...cause thats what my refresh rate is anywayws....my monitors are like from 2007

OC' also voids you warranty from Intel unless you pay extra. But places like Microcenter will cover light OC'ing.

That a huge gain eta, what game are we talking? AVg is 7-24 fps from 3.5ghz - 4.7 ghz. THose are huge gains your CPU must have ran at like 2.8 out of the box then.

The OC nets me a real and easy 25-30 FPS

@skin - it's not that im unsatisfied with FPS performance. Far from it. Just a really old computer, things are starting to fail, time for an upgrade :)

Mwo is one of the few games still stuck on single core

Two ryzens built. Two diff gens no real issues ie good bench marks for both. liquid cooling on both i found the 8700 at 300.00 so good time to purchase.

high cpu clock speed mea higher fps n smother play across all gpu's alot of the games use plny one core so speed counts

doesn't look like anything to me

I do overclock it if necessary—as mentioned before, if performance is inadequate. I buy it for the potential to overclock it. I have a 400 HP car, does that mean I go WOT every time I take it out? Of course not, but when I want the power its there.

Why buy a K if you don't plan to OC it? lol
