For gaming the 6700K + at least DDR4-3400 or better is currently #1 since most games are single threaded. For rendering the 6800K might fare a bit better but will be behind the 6700K in most games due to its inferior single-core performance.
So it depends on how you will use it really. If you mainly game then 6700K + fast DDR4, if you mainly use multi-threaded apps then the 6800K.

So really I'm planning to clock both CPU and GPU to either stability or voltage limits.

Edit: And yeah aftermarket cooling in terms of a semi closed loop like the EK Predator is on the table, I don't really want to rip the rads and pumps out of my old rig to transfer, I figure it'd be nicer for the next owner to remove having to worry about having to rebuild a whole new cooling loop.

 

Oh, hence the 850W PSU for an absolute guarantee that you will be able to have fun finding the absolute limits for overclocking once in a while. Damn. Yeah, then you'd want a 650W or 750W PSU - especially if you're going to have the 6800K.

So it depends on how you will use it really. If you mainly game then 6700K + fast DDR4, if you mainly use multi-threaded apps then the 6800K.

And I mean this is something I'm more than aware of, I've been sitting on ass for the last three years waiting, watching and following every minor development, registering every little negligible IPC gain like an addict just waiting for the right time to sidegrade or upgrade.

IT'S JUST SO HARD TO DECIDE

I think I'm more than settled on Z170 however, It always was my initial choice. Up until I specced out an enthusiast platform build and noted the price difference being anything but hard to swallow.

And you guy's all have no argument in the age old dual vs quad channel memory debate ? Have their been any development's with DDR4 and its marginally faster speeds, ram is'int really my thing ?

Which motherboard are you planning to get?

fps or encoding performance?

I'll throw my shortlist down below.

X99

Asus X99-E WS ~ $899 AUD

Asus X99-M WS ~ $530 AUD

EVGA X99 MICRO 2 ~ $239 AUD

Z170

EVGA Z170 CLASSIFIED K ~ $ 331 AUD

To be straight game performance was my priority, and therefore the Z170 platform most appealing. That was until (as I've now detailed in my first post) newer Maxwell cards significantly improve with a 16x by 16x SLI configuration to the CPU, the option of which restricted to only the enthusiast platform with a 5930k or above.

I do realize that with boards like the Z170 Classified I could get by thanks to the PLX chip, but ahhh.. after owning the EVGA Z77 FTW with it's PLX chip and associated woes I just cant bear to ever return to that route, no matter how much it's improved in newer implementations.

EDIT: Brainfart, my bad that video demonstrates 980ti SLI 16x vs 8x performance, but I imagine this still stands true for Nvidia's newer cards also.
