Do you think that could be a problem?
Its not junk or anything but it could hold back your overclock if you are going to do that.
Also note that its a multi rail PSU.

As another poster mentioned, your PSU could use upgrading - otherwise I'd just save the cash for something else. Want a fancier board, get a fancier board. Just make sure it actually has an upgrade you'll use at one point - otherwise you're just tossing cash away.

I.e. ask yourself what does the Ranger have specifically that you'd like that the Z-170a doesn't? Same with the xtreme4 vs extreme6+ etc.
Actually I think just the quality of VRMs and capacitors.

I don't need 3 way crossfire and probably neither Crossfire at all (depends on how 2 390s will work vs how newgpus will work), I would like to have both type C and A of usb3.1, I'll like very good ocing capacity and this is it. i don't really need more than 4-5 Sata III ports.

Last question; with two 390s will they be really close? I mean the fans from the first one will be blocked my the second one pcb?

These are the components I'll probably buy:

MSI z170a M5
Intel I5 6400
Corsair Vengeance DDR4 2666Mhz CL15 16Gb

Two questions: the ram will work fine or they are not using double channel? Is it safe to take a 6400, I mean there is no defference when talking about overclock possibilities comparing it to a 6500 or 6600, is it right?
