If you're really settled on the FTZ01 and Gigabyte Z170n Gaming 5, then Big Shuriken is a strong contender. I think Cryorig C1 might fit as well but I'm not 100% sure. Some people were able to mount it on the Z97 Gaming 5 so I assume it fits too as the CPU socket seems to be at the exact same place.
Some of the best CPU cooler with your mobo :
- Scythe Big Shuriken with an added Slim fan on the case vent (you can use the stock one)
- Noctua NH-L12 if you swap the top fan for a slim one (again stock one will be fine)
- Cryorig C1 and you can swap the stock fan for a 140 with 120mm mount and 25mm thick one like Scythe Glide Stream, Cryorig XF140, Noctua NF A15, etc...
- Cooltek LP53 + 25mm case fan
Now which one is the best ? No one really knows exactly i guess but every cooler in this list should be efficient enough for your need.
I personally use the Cryorig C1 + XF140 at 800-900 RPM and tried some OC on my I5 6600K. I was able to achieve a perfectly stable 4,4 Ghz frequency with 80°C max while using Prime95.
For ram, Kingston offers the new Kingston Hyper X Savage DDR4 ram at 3000 Ghz : http://www.ldlc.com/fiche/PB00194518.html
Pricy and I think you can achieve the same frequency by OCing Hyper X fury 2666 to 3000 Ghz(I have a pair, I should try) and they cost twice as less. Kingston Hyper X Fury/Savage are low enough to fit under Cryorig C1 and Scythe Big Shuriken.
Also if you're planning to use the USB 3.0 header port on the Gigabyte mobo, I strongly suggest to get a low profile USB 3.0 header like this one :
Or you will struggle to fit large heatsink above it. The FTZ01 USB 3.0 cable is quiet stiff. I think you'll be fine though if you go with the Cooltek LP53 as it is tiny enough.Edited by SHwoKing - 11/2/15 at 12:36pm
