I do not recall saying how much exactly it would help. I said that I didn't have any problems with cooling my 7820x on air @4.7ghz so we could expect the same with the mainstream 8 core. You can compare 7800x vs 8700k. Both are hexa cores. 8700k is clocked higher, running all core turbo boost @ 4.3ghz, 7800x @ 4ghz. 7800x runs hotter, worse overclocker, at stock consumes more power up to 50w, the power consumption skyrockets when OC-ed. We see the same thing happening with 7740x which is just 7700k put on a different socket, consuming more power again, up to 30w more than 7700k. So that gives you pretty much the idea what you can expect. It can't get worse. Ad 8700k vs 2600x, in the vast majority of clock to clock tasks, the i7 will win. Haven't seen any single threaded bechmarks where the Intel lost and in games, pretty clear, 8700k will simply always perform faster... 2600x is able to compete occasionally in heavily multithreaded scenarios. But that is easily skewed in favour of Intel by using highly clocked rams which Ryzen wouldn't handle.
