What do you guys think new z170 build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I finally found a place I can price match the board I want down from Ncix $599+tax shipping down to $450 so it's time to build. This server will be consolidating various servers and cloud drives.

It'll be main backbone of entire network in my place file serving and media serving/streaming.

Once Volta Titan drops it'll also receive my Titan X and become a Render box for backing up my blue ray library.

Here's the parts list so far.
1.Asus z170-WS
2.Intel i7 6700K
3.Gskill 64GB Ram
4.Intel 750 400gb Os Drive
5.950pro m.2 x2 512gb raid 0
6.Evga 1200watt platinum rated psu
7.Haf XB Evo

Going to decide on cooling later as parts arrive and I see what kind of clearance I have with the board installed. I'll be using the newer Samsung 960 once they come in but it'll be in the same m.2 format.

What are your guys thoughts on this build I'll also be looking into a nice raid controller once I find one with onboard cache I'll be using straight 8TB HDD for storage so I'll wait till suggestions come in from you guys on which will best serve my needs there.

750 for boot drive the sammys for raid 0 m.2 speedy storage for game servers ill be rinning. Ill be using the 960 pros when theh come out. I wanted to remove any possible bottleneck in the server so everything will run through the raid 0 m.2 drives but ill still use spinning rust fir mass storage.

Yeah i know its crazy overkill but iv got few servers doin differnt roles atm so thought id consolidate and future proof for awhile once 10gb becomes more feasible on my poor wallet i can just add in a card this shoukd be good for a long time.

I would upgrade main rig but im waiting on xpoint befor i change over ddr 4 failed to reach density it promised took to many years lol. So ill put it in for server and wait for awhile longer to get a big upgrade.
