I'm looking to build a new system and Thunderbolt compatibility is my first priority.
I have an Apple Thunderbolt Display and Apollo audio interface that I need to use.
My parts list is as follows:
I7-8700 (factory cooler, lower power, less heat, and I'm not interested in overclocking)
I will soon be building a new system to replace my MacBook Pro used primarily for Pro Tools. My interface is a Universal Audio Apollo so Thunderbolt is a must have.
I'm considering a i7-8700K with an ASRock Fatal1ty Z370 Gaming-ITX/ac. This would give me 6 cores of Hyperthreading for Plugins...
