Anybody jumped the guns on coffeelake ?

Was thinking about switching from my 3570K to 8700K, but (RAM) prices, availability and later spectre/meltdown changed my mind. Won't buy any new CPUs until fixes in harddware are availble.

Instead I upgraded from my 4.4 GHz 3570K to a 5GHz 3770K. That will keeep me "alive" this year. Incl selling my 3570K I paid a little over 100€ for that one.

I was thinking of the CPU+mobo+ram this time around since i have upgraded GPU a year ago and since the prices are so freaking high ! (I'm still on 2500k with 8Gb ram).
