In Topic: Want to sell my Ryzen 1700 and get a 8700k. Is it stupid/greedy? Or is it OK?

You need more vcore to get higher. You need to be around 1.375 to 1.45 for 4.0Ghz if your chip will run the number. Every Ryzen chip I have tested does between 3990Mhz and 4091Mhz.  That is a sample size of 7 processors.  Turn up the water pump speedto max on the Kraken and boost your fan speed to manage thermals and push a little harder.  The 8700K is better in some scenarios and the 1700 is better in some. 

I have to agree with ccoke. I did the same Change (1700 to 8700) and it wasn't that much of a difference for me. Maybe I was lucky with the lottery? ;)
