CORE I7-10700K 3.8GHZ (COMET LAKE) SOCKET LGA1200 PROCESSOR – RETAIL
The Intel Core- series of processors have now received their latest upgrade in the form of the Comet Lake Refresh. This new updated range brings some highly sought after improvements, including the fact that CPUs with unlocked multipliers now offer soldered heatspreaders (IHS). This enables heat to be more effectively dissipated away from the CPU, allowing higher clock frequencies over longer periods of time.
The Intel Core i7-10700K is the new high-end model of the Core 10,000- series and offers eight cores with Hyper-Threading (SMT), capable of processing up to 16 threads simultaneously. The enthusiast-class CPU is also capable of offering increased clock frequencies and optimised boost functions when compared to its predecessors. The TDP of this Ten-Core processor is 125 Watts. The processor is compatible with socket 1200 motherboards from the 400-series.
For memory we highly recommend the 8 Pack memory range manufacturered by TeamGroup to OcUK Specifications and recommend the dual channel 3200MHz and 3600MHz 16GB and 32GB Dual Channel kits available from this website for optimal performance and best overclocking ability.
