    Is there a particular reason not to reuse the current CPU cooler? I'm currently running, well, until the MB rolled over & died, an i7 3770. My "understanding" is that the 3770 actually runs hotter than either the 7700 or the 7700k. I'm probably going with the Code rather than the Hero. Suggestions are much appreciated.

    Good choice on the Maximus IX Code !

    I can tell you kabylake runs hotter than ivy bridge and skylake, I didn't have a haswell cpu but they ran hot too, devils canyon was a little better but not much.

    Your Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO will work just fine for the 7700k at stock speed, depending on temps you might can overclock it a little but I wouldn't expect very much as temps will become the limiting factor quickly.

    I'll keep that in mind. I have no intention of overclocking at all, but if I get bitten by the bug, I'll change the cooler. Any suggestions??

    I forgot to add that, in checking my cart to see the difference in price between the 7700 & 770k, I actually had the k in my cart!!! So, no increase!! Sometimes, not often, mistakes work in our benefit, but I'm not counting on it.

    LOL I can see subconsciously you wanted the i7-7700k.

    You won't be dissappointed, if you want to see how far it will overclock with your 212 EVO I will gladly help you, it's quite easy to do.

    OK so here's my list for delidding the i7-7700k.

    Rockit 88 delid tool - Check
    1150 Relid kit - Check
    Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut - Check
    Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut - Check
    99% Alcohol - Bzzzt - 70% will have to do
    Scotch tape - Check
    Black heat resistant RTV sealant - Check
    Credit card for scraping off Intels silicon - Check

    I believe that completes the list so let's get this under way, wish me luck.

    Hey Nate, I am putting together a new build
    https://pcpartpicker.com/user/bobbagels/saved/yqpmGX
    and almost ready to order. I have been reading heavily about delidding the 7700K and from what I am reading and seeing in videos I think I can do it.
    So please, let us know how it goes and any tips appreciated.

    Your build looks nice bobbagels, you'll have a screamer with the 1080 Ti !

    I'm in the process of cleaning it up right now, it's super easy to get the IHS off with Rockit 88. I'm scraping off Intels silicon, they put it on fairly thick which puts more of a gap between the die and IHS.

    It's going great so far, I'm taking my time with it.

    Sorry this is blurry but you can still see Intel puts their silicon sealant on thick.

    It's clean but I see lint, I'll get that off and apply the conductonaut onto the die and IHS.
