1. 8700K is a big notch improvement vs 2600X pls. The price gap got reason with your budget range, go for 2600X ba. No point forking out more for CPU only and downgrade everything.

2. Ryzen suffering from heat? Where did you read that? Try the 8700K without delid, then compare to Ryzen and see. Also, delid void warranty. The only reason Ryzen can overheat, is an inadequate OC by the user.

3. Yes, worth spending a tad bit more for 3000mhz and up. No OC nvm, since you're getting 2600X anyway. With higher speed RAM, remember go into BIOS and activate the XMP for the RAM to run at higher speed as per intended.

4. Sapphire deal looks sweeter.
