Intel Core i7 7700k « TOP NEW Review
KING FOR A DAY. This is, as far as we’re concerned, an acceptable outcome – since the new model is faster (albeit only just) and doesn’t cost significantly more, the case for going with an older Core i7-6700K is minimal. Heat remains a potential issue, and is the single largest reason we aren’t furnishing the Core i7 7700k with an award at present, but if you aren’t going to be doing things such as 4K video encoding, you can keep it under control with a good cooler

Intel Core i7-7700K vs Core i7-6700K Performance Benchmarks With Z270 - Clock To Clock Comparison For Kaby Lake Shows No Improvement

Works great, runs a little hot but that's normal.
I like it very much. This is the fastest CPU that will fit in my Gigabyte Z170x Gaming 5. Overclocks just fine from 4.2 GHz to 4.7. The only thing to note is that the Kaby Lake runs at a significantly higher temperature than other CPUs in this generation: 50C (med) to 70C (heavy), but don't be alarm...

A gaming BEAST.
Upgraded from a Overclocked 7600k. Sadly, AAA games like "Battlefield One", "Mass Effect: Andromeda" and "Hunt: Showdown" will bottleneck every i5, even the 6 core 8th gen. This CPU saved the day. Hyper threading once again shows its strength. Higher temps at stock speeds, about 10+ degrees over the...

Intel Core i7-7700K, 2017's Worst CPU Purchase Revisited
It's also worth noting that we're testing at 1080p with an Rtx 2080 Ti, so under more realistic gaming conditions, the margins will be even smaller. And that also applies when comparing the 7700k to something like the 10 600k, for example, as dated as the core I7 7700k looks when compared to processors such as the core I5 10 600k or Ryzen 7 3700x, especially when you consider that sold for roughly the same price just three and a half years ago.

Great performance with 2080ti
Had just installed a EVGA RTX 2080ti in my PC but was getting bottlenecked in my gaming by my i5 6600K. Playing The Division 2 I would see 100% CPU usage and less than 20% GPU. I didn’t drop a grand on a new GPU to utilize only 20% of it! I also didn’t feel like replacing my MSI Z170A Gaming M7 moth...

Intel i7-7700K Review: Gaming, Rendering, Temps, & Overclocking
here is the same as with most of our Intel flagship reviews for the last two generations now, which is basically if you've got the previous generation or even the generation before that in the case.

Still running like a beast since 2017
I produce music professionally so I'm running 20+ instances of Kontakt, Omnisphere, Output, and any other VST you can think of inside my daw, plus recording vocals in Reaper, making videos in After Effects, with 50 tabs open in Chrome and this CPU still handles everything I throw at it 3.5 years lat...

Intel i7-7700K Revisit: Benchmark vs. 9700K, 2700, 9900K, & More
But is it worth upgrading is it's kind of a weird nebulous area to be because it's just it's not that old.
