How will the overall performance be going from a AMD FX 8350 to this new Intel Chip? Will my room be quite a bit cooler?

The skylake chip is more that twice as energy efficient.

the MSI motherboard states :MCT Enabled Automatically?: no. is this really a big drawback ?

"For our performance metrics, the SLI PLUS doesn’t implement MultiCore Turbo by default so it falls into the second half of the table for CPU performance, but an overclock is just a click away in either the BIOS or software. "

If you are going to use intel you may want to look at 6600k. http://www.ncix.com/detail/intel-core-i5-6600k-3-50ghz-6m-e0-110591.htm
This gives you option to OC to get more from your system with your Noctua D15.
MSI Z170A is a good choice. http://www.ncix.com/detail/msi-z170a-sli-plus-atx-66-126208.htm
For ram 2x8gb 3200 DDR4 http://www.ncix.com/detail/g-skill-ripjaws-v-16gb-2x8gb-c4-116133.htm

The change will come to $592 CAD. Can look around to find the best price and NCIX will price match.

The option to have MCT on or off is good. Do you want turbo to be on all the time? This would increase performance, but also increase power. Depends on your needs.

Those are probably a bit too tall.

The Corsair LPX will fit. 3200mhz is a great speed for Skylake also.

Should I stick with the Noctua DH 15 or go to water cooling?
