With speed generally comes heat. And in those terms the processor acted fairly predictably. It sat at 26 degrees at stock and 4.5GHz while idle, matching the overclocked idle temp of the 6700K. At peak load (Unigine Valley Extreme HD on loop alongside PC Mark 8’s Work benchmarks), the 7700K hit 70 degrees at stock and 79 degrees at 4.5GHz. That’s a decent amount of work; while the 7700K handled it, anyone wanting to ramp up the clock speed even more should have sensible cooling in place. A little warmer than we expected, but not by much.

Ultimately, whether the Core i7-7700K is for you should come down to how much extra performance you need or want. Priced around the same as the 6700K, if you’re building a new system then the 7700K is the obvious choice. However, if you’re running a solid 6700K setup and looking to upgrade, the £300+ cost doesn’t represent anything more than refined performance. With that in mind, if you’re desperate to try and hit 5GHz, then this is likely the processor you’ve been waiting for – so enjoy.
