Hi! Do you think this cpu is gonna make a fine upgrade to my gaming PC?? I'm also considering a 6700K (could get this one around 150 PLN (-35 euro) cheaper) Will it go with my current MoBo and the Silentium Fera cooling I'm using now?? thnx

Totally worth it i7 7700k!!exellent for gaming or anything! My biggest boost is wildlands: from medium/high to very high(boost 10 to 20 fps!) :) If you have a great cooler,forget my message.If you have a stock cooler you must have to a new cooler, master 212 evo or any other great cooler,or a liquid cooler if you want to OC.

My MoBo is MSI H110M PRO-D (MS-7996) at least this is what I found out from the command prompt. As I said before, I'm using a Silentium Fera (https://www.silentiumpc.com/en/fera-3-he1224/)

I heard that although this CPU is overclockable no problem, it's rather unnecessary for you to do it given its base speed and power, so I don't think I'll go for it ;)
And thank you for your informative reply :)
