I am having second thoughts. Recently I set in motion a plan to move from a 6700k to an 8700k on my ASUS Z170-A board. I need some more power and I thought this would be the cheapest and maybe "fun" way to get more power. However now I am not so sure. There is a real risk I brick my z170 board flashing a modded bios to it. I have been thinking I should have a Z390-a board on hand in case worse comes to worse and the z170-a dies. After all I NEED my rig running. That of course means potentially spending 250 on a new board and maybe killing a working board?? I am not sure my level of enthusiasm is where it used to be with puter parts and tinkering. What to do what to do. Wait for Zen2 (16C32T on x470)? Hold fast with little ol 6700k? Throw caution and money to the wind and try the 8700k and see where that takes me?
So ya. I have asked a question that only I will be able to answer in the end. Just thought I would bounce it off of some other people as it is snowing, cold and I am bored.
