hey all, some one ask me a question on my video about a CPU upgrade, he wrote " i7 6700 (lga 1151 socket) to a i5 9600k or a i5 8600."

not as far as I know the best CPU in the LGA1151 for that motherboard is the i7 7600k, correct or is it just the i7 6700k?

has any one got anything higher or worth it?

thanks Whoopee

Hi,

There is no i7-7600K, but rather i5-7600K or i7-7700K.

Going back to your question, the best CPU for the socket 1151 v1 is the i7-7700K :

Socket 1151 v1 : i5-6600K / i7-6700K | i5-7600K / i7-7700K
Socket 1151 v2 : i5-8600K / i7-8700K | i5-9600K / i7-9700K / i9-9900K
Socket 1200 : i5-10600K / i7-10700K / i9-10900K
