Intel has finally launched its new Coffee Lake-based Core i7-8700K and Core i5-8600K processors, with pro-overclocker Der8auer and CaseKing.de teaming up to offer the new CPUs in pre-binned, and special designed IHS variants.

CaseKing is offering three different versions of the 6C/12T variant, with the Core i7-8700K being offered in the following options:

 

  • Advanced Edition: pre-binned without modified IHS or TIM (stock @ 4.8GHz, OC @ 5.1GHz)
  • Pro Edition: pre-binned + nickel-plated/polished IHS (stock @ 4.8GHz, OC @ 5.1GHz)
  • Ultra Edition: pre-binned + silver IHS + Liquid Metal TIM (up to 5.2GHz)

 

Any enthusiast who is looking to overclock will want to seriously consider this awesome offer, especially given the CPUs are pre-binned to hit 5.2GHz... looks like it's time to grab one myself.
