      Lets get an updated thread of everyone's custom Rigs that they will be using and/are already using to play SC.  Please attach a hardware list and note any future upgrades you'll be making.  Probably try to limit to 2-4 pics per post to limit load time on smaller devices and tag your chipset (AMD or Intel) in the tagline.  Cant wait to see what you guys are running!  
      I've already posted this on my profile but I'll start anyway.

      Headline really sums it up.

      Several reviews of the upcoming Intel 8th gen CPU's have leaked, and they look like AMD needs to watch out.
      In the reviews (with synthetic benchmarks here) it looks like the 8700K manages to slightly outperform the vaunted 1800X at multicore.
      If this is true, the 8700K is an incredible CPU, as it actually manages to outperform a CPU with 25% more cores and a (presumed) +150 euro pricetag, depending on where you live. Not to mention that it manages to seriously outpace it in gaming. Could Intel have stolen the price/performance crown from AMD here?
      Lastly, the reviews state that the 8600K was overclocked to 5.1GHz. While this is great, the CPU got up to temps of 92 degrees C. Still. Perhaps Intel learned from their critics regarding TIM. October 5th will be an interesting day, guys.

      Regular reviews are out.
      Many reviews at this link: http://www.hardocp.com/news/2017/01/03/intel_core_i77700k_kaby_lake_processor_review_roundup
      Here's another they missed: http://www.anandtech.com/show/10959/intel-launches-7th-generation-kaby-lake-i7-7700k-i5-7600k-i3-7350k
      It looks like the bottom line is that Kaby Lake's high end CPUs give the same performance as their predecessor (Skylake), but perhaps overclock a little better.  A few other features that probably won't matter to many people.
      However the i3-7350K (an unlocked i3) is the real surprise for the mid-range or value segment. Cheap and overclockable.  Probably a great CPU for the gamer on a budget.  I didn't see this one coming and most everyone that can't spring for the i5-7600k should be buying this instead.
