    Caseking already has the tray CPUs in stock, but have cherry picked the high clockers for their delidding, so you can pay more for them 100E for every 100Hz.

    I did that last time, and my 8700K does hit the guaranteed 5GHz but it cannot go even 0.005 higher, just to 5.002 and that's it.

    I ordered the box version this time to play the Silicone Lottery(not order from them but play)

    Just found this review for the ASUS ROG Maximus XI Hero.

    Interest is at the conclusion(I have the X Hero)

    The difference between Z370 and Z390 is still a little puzzling, it, however, is a small step upwards in terms of native USB 3.1 and WIFI, that and it's better optimized on the VRM area to deal with the new 8-core processors.

    The platform (Z370/Coffee Lake) also manages heat and power consumption at higher, but decent enough levels.

    So Z390 has had the VRM tweaked to handle the 8 core better, why does the heat and power consumption go higher on the Z370 VRM?

    Only if you install the new 9900K , as it gets a lot hotter IF overclocked.
