8600k or 8700

Going back and forth but basically it's mostly for gaming however, I would really like to get into video editing, nothing work intensive just a new hobby making and editing videos but also to take my gaming and hobby as far into the future as I can, not sure if I will get into streaming yet. I don't wanna feel like I need to upgrade in 2 or 3 yrs, if money would allow it id just shoot straight for the sun (say **** the stars) and grab an 8700k but its too much $$. 8700 or 8600k?

If you're not going to stream and just video edit and play games get the 8600k and overclock it , if you're going to stream and want more headroom in future get the i7 8700 ( some games like battlefield1 like more threads)

For video editing you can't do wrong with either of those two CPUs.

The 8600K can be overclocked, but the 8700 has double the threads. It's ~90 bucks cheaper, and consumes less.

Also it does not need any special cooler to keep it cool.

Could easily handle video editing up to 4K.

I know the 8700 comes with a cpu fan but you don't think it would be a good idea to get a better one, also I keep hearing about boosting all core to 4.4 on the non-k, is that feature only on some boards?

That's a feature of the CPU.

Will work with any board.

The i7-8700 can reach speeds from 4.3GHz up to 4.6GHz with TB depending the cores that are involved.

Yeah, get this one below.

It's cheap and will do a great job. ;)

Ok then thanks, I had an H7 to go with it. In theory it seems the 8700 would give more over a longer period then OCing the i5. Ty

Yeah, for keeping the cost down as possible, and with double the threads, IMHO the i7-8700 offers a huge value for that money. ;)

Anything you would change? https://pcpartpicker.com/list/MjDJCy Bout a year after Volta is out ill retire my 1060 and 1080p/60hz for a much beefier card/screen.

All core can go up to 4.7Ghz when using 102.3 as BLK. A normal size case will handle the heat easily. I am using it in my node202.
