  Newegg has the Intel Coffee Lake in stock, maybe I'll buy one if it lasts till Monday.  I've been waiting quite a while for it to be in stock, I looked at some cases and watched some build videos.  I put some money for it aside ages ago, already thinking of air cooled vs water cooling, I'm tired of taking apart the cooler to clean out the dust.

  Intel Core i7-8700K Coffee Lake 6-Core 3.7  $417,  I think the price went up since first introduced.  Thinking of 7 to 800 W ps,  MSI Z370 KRAIT GAMING LGA, not for gaming but a reasonable price, maybe I'll change it. Looking at the storage Intel talks about Optane and  2500 MBps read and 2000 Mbps write and the 64-Layer 3D NAND TLC with no specifications.
Samsung looks good with SAMSUNG 960 EVO M.2 250GB NVMe PCI-Express 3.0 x4  Up to 3200 MBps read and 1500 write with a good price.
  Very happy with this computer I'm using and can't think of how a computer could be faster but then I'm not a gamer and that seems to depend on the GPU.

Right now a HP Win 10  i7 4770 3.4 Ghz.  Very pleased with it, still booting at 10 Sec.  Pretty sure I don't need all that but if I'm going through a build looking and ordering all that I may as well make it worth while.  Like to see if I can beat the 10 sec.  A Karby Lake would probably be more than enough Built it sells for $969 Intel Core i7-7700 (3.6 GHz) with a SSD,   NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060.    Not sure Not done on the ordering and have about $1000.

Fast booting isn't down to the CPU any more, them days are gone, it's down to the motherboard and SSD speed.

As a rule, Micro ATX standard is faster booting than ATX.

  Not doing a heck of a lot with it, lots of software that I haven't even put in. I did put in some of the Daz models, free stuff and played around with it.  That took up a lot of space on the storage.  I've been looking into the stock market lately, research what stock will make me a millionaire in a few months. and in the  evening I use the internet for TV.
  I do like the mother boards that are offered for building rather than the stripped down versions the manufactures use.  I do want to see what a Karby Lake build will cost but the Coffee lake might have faster lanes to use.

  I've always had a backup PC, even have backup vaporizers, in case something goes wrong,  You have something to get on the internet and find a fix.  I've been using the HP alone for about a year, maybe the internet is safer now. 
  I just did a list of parts for the Karby Lake and only save about $150 so I may as well stay with Coffee Lake.
  I've done builds ages ago and did run into problems with motherboards with results that they said it was okay but it still didn't work for me so there is a bit of excitement and I now insure the motherboards and CPU's.
I began buying at the right times and spent less than a build would cost like now parts vs buying is about the same, maybe at a latter date it would cost less to buy.

  I told myself if it was still there I'd buy it which I did.  Now for another thousand I can get the additional parts.  I read a review and some one had a 5 sec boot time.  Really liked that 5820 Freddy built.

Have fun Carl  Cool

My 5820 is holding up well, 2.5 years now and still no need to upgrade (fingers crossed) - I still might get that case like Data's though sometime.

Actually since the last few MS updates the boot has improved - it's about ten seconds I guestimate now, but it's not something I worry about too much as during boot I am making coffee  Grin

Yeah cube cases are nice, if nothing else it's good to make the PC look different for a change.

  I've got to move some money at the bank to keep things balanced, I'll probably wait till after X mas before ordering again because of increased shipping.  Two computer benches for computers really made for the mid tower case probably what I'll use, smaller tower would be nice.
  Not sure about the M.2  seems like the M.2 2280 size is the best so I've chosen the
SAMSUNG 960 EVO M.2 250GB NVMe PCI-Express 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V6E250BW

Here is the motherboard
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813144109
   Specifications is not giving the size and there is mention of a card needed that confuses me.
