There are now engineering samples and compatible 200-series motherboards floating around, with 'Zolkorn' leaking out some details on the 7700K. The 7700K processor in question was overclocked easily to 4.9GHz, requiring just 1.29V of power - but when you consider the Kaby Lake enthusiast CPU was hitting 100C... you might think twice before throwing down the OC gauntlet.
