Rate and CritiqueMy New I7 6700k Build

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Ok building this next week so before I make my order anyone want to look it over and tell me why I should or should not change anything lmk.
I mostly game but I like to simultaneously Stream and record so I need the I7

Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
Noctua NH-D14 65.0 CFM CPU Cooler
ASRock Z170 Extreme6 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
Kingston HyperX Fury Black 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR4-2400 Memory HX426C15FBK2/16
Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SATA III M.2 SSD
Samsung 850 EVO 1 TB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-75E1T0B/AM)
X2 Toshiba 5TB SATA 6Gb/s 7200rpm, 128MB Cache, 3.5-Inch Internal Hard Drive (PH3500U-1I72)
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 4GB WINDFORCE Video Card
NZXT S340 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case
EVGA 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply.

Notes:
Went with the Noctua because its awesome and more quite than a AIO water system.
I already own the Case and the GTX970 so not changing these yet

Any feed back would be appreciated thanks!

It seems solid. What's the exact model of that 750W PSU?

I'm down with the motherboard, cooler, and PSU choices for sure. It looks like your storage solution is already decided upon, and only you know how much you really need, so that leaves the RAM as the only thing that warrants a possible change; how about some hot 3200mhz TridentZ?

Yeah looks good but get some different RAM, and let us know exactly which PSU you got

DDR4 3000 isn't much more and reviews show Skylake scaling pretty well with faster RAM.

I choose a lower frequency ram to cut a few corners.. I'm already a few hundred over budget tongue.gif
Everything I have read stated that faster ram with not increase my game-play performance or be notably apparent in desktop applications, from what I gather the faster ram is more important for server-side applications which I will never do with the pc... if in the future games and programs (Apps now tongue.gif ) are optimized to take advantage of the increased speed I could always jump on it and upgrade at a lower price in a year or two.. if not than I keep what I have. I hate being an early adapter sometimes, I was burnt on my eight core FX 8350 which has absolutely sucked performance wise.. I could oc it but its a furnace and more trouble than its worth hence the upgrade.

Good choice.

Faster RAM can actually help increase minimum FPS and since it is literally probably $10 more I would absolutely go with at least DDR4-3000 instead.

Also I would go for 2x8GB sticks rather than 4x4 so you can upgrade down the road if you need to. Also 2 sticks will be less strain on the IMC

Yeah I will just go with the faster ram... sucks to cheap out on $20 on a $1500 purchase... and those Tridentz are compatible with my mb as per ASRock biggrin.gif

Thanks Everyone for your time!
