I need to build a new system and I want to go with the I5 6600K as the CPU. I use to be good with computer systems but it been awhile since I attempt to upgrade. The new motherboards are confusing because there is too much information on all the boards and it is all sounding like Greek now. The biggest reason I want to upgrade is that I have retired and I want to play some of the new games. The main one I want to play right now is Fallout 4. This thing requires a fast system to play. I have decided to go with the I5 6600K CPU but I need to know about a case, Motherboard, Memory and cooling. I want to be able to overclock the machine when I am playing my games. This is become a learning experience. I think first I need to find a good motherboard that is easy and dependable to overclock (first time trying it). Every time I think that I have found one I see a review or comment somewhere talking about the horrors of it. The ones that I am considering right now are: ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO, MSI Pro Solution Intel Z170A, or the GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 7. I don’t know which company provides the most support but that is a big consideration for me also. How about helping out a retired VET.
