I've been on quad core since 2008 so I simply wanted something different. In addition I'm hoping that DX12 will bring significant improvements to multicore utilization in games. Maybe 6700K would've been more rational choice for gaming, especially since Z170 boards are much cheaper than X99 ones. There isn't a massive difference between Haswell and Skylake IPC wise so I guess you can't go wrong either way.
