Unboxing & A Closer Look
As with all pre-release samples, out Intel Core i7-8700K comes in a non-descript black box. The only markings are a static sensitive device warning.
The rear of the box is not much different.
Opening it up, we are greeted with our CPU nestled between to ESD safe sheets of foam.
Our CPU bares only the engineering sample markings but does have the retail clock speed laser engraved.
The rear of the LGA 1151 chip isn’t much changed from previous generations.
