After a few months ago theIntel Core i7-7700K and Core i5-7600K Ultra, Pro and Advanced,history takes the same path again but this time theIntel Core i7-8700K,under the hands of the overclocking expertder8auerin collaboration with CaseKing, they have announced a new line of alternative processors to those offered by Intel itself, confirming the arrival of theIntel Core i7-8700L Ultra Edition.
This CPU is basically an Intel Core i7-8700K, but it has been tested to ensure it reaches5.20 GHzwithout any problem, and at that speed a CPU serves to heat a t, essential changes were made toimprove cooling
This starts in theencapsulation replacement (IHS)of the CPU, cleaning the thermal compound of poor quality anduse a liquid metal thermal compoundto give greater heat transmission, using a new IHS manufactured in a99.99% silver,which help transmit heat to the cooling system in a much faster way by offering a thermal conductivity of430 W / m K,while copper stays below400 W / m K.Although these improvements are priced at$ 869 euros,which doubles the price of the original CPU.
