The 6700k is going to clock higher, has the more modern chipset features, and will do everything you want in a gaming/streaming rig. I personally like that you can get a Z170 motherboard with the same general setup for half the price of a X99 as well.

I guess what I should do then is polish 2 builds and then do some pros and cons. In terms of a streaming rig ,assuming I'll be playing every game at 1440p and aiming for max settings whenever possible, do you think the 6700k would yield higher FPS? (All else being equal of course)

Games dont use the CPU as much as they use to so a 5820K is not going to all that much faster then a 6700K or vice versa.
Its the video cards that count if you want higher FPS, CPU not so much so unless its a 5+ year old CPU.

Considering you can squeeze in two 980Tis, you're going to be playing every game out now @ 1440p with max settings. It is going to take a very, very futuristic and, frankly, poorly coded game to kill a highly clocked 6700k in an every day scenario.

You can get 3000Mhz to work, but it may not be that easy, but I reckon that by searching on YouTube, you should be able to figure it out rather easily with the ram.
Anyways the build seems nice overall, I'd stick with the X99/5820k instead of Z170/6700k. There is a performance, and espicially when you turn into multicore applications, this may not apply as much to gaming, however the 5820k has great potential when it comes to overclocking, and doesn't require much either.

The most common overclock from the 5820k is around the 4.3-4.6Ghz mark.

Thus far, it seems the 6 cores really do make a difference when streaming to ensure that you can still multi-task. (web browser for chat among other things) So I'm still leaning in that direction I think since I can't imagine that I would have issues with gaming. If I have to I might bump up my budget to eek out another chunk of performance to make sure I'm fully utilizing my monitor (BenQ 2730z)

In my opinion, the 6700k vs 5820k battle doesnt make any sense, a 5820k build costs the same as a 6700k, and the 5820k is by far superior. I think its a no brainer, and I do not understand why anyone suggest them.

I understand than in some regions, there may be a 50$ difference, but honestly 50$ is not that much of a difference, compared to what you get. You get 2 more cores and 4 threads, along with other goodies.

Funny enough, the 5820k is actually cheaper everywhere I've seen.

I have been thinking about updating the parts list to this:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

It comes in under €2200, but if I had to pick up another graphics card to get the performance I'm looking for I'd be open to adding another one. Might stretch my budget farther than I'd like but ultimately I think I can justify it.

A little worried about whether I could mount that cooler on the top of the case since I didn't see any good pictures. But if so I think it'd be fine overall.

I have nearly your same build, and I think this case would be right up your alley if you're not interested in using a cd drive ever.

http://de.pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-case-cas340wb1

It also comes in white in case you were set on that color. I run SLI in it too with an nzxt kraken x61 280mm water cooler for the cpu which sits in the front of the case. I have 2 SSD's and 2 HDD's so that shouldn't be a space issue either.

Any chance you could put up a few photos so I can see how you have it set up? I have a hard time just visualizing so I would appreciate it! smile.gif

I don't see where I could mount that cooler, any ideas?
