This project is probably ready later for new GeForce Pascal GPU... Depend from NVIDIA, we still don't know when is landing from orbit appointed.
Probably Spring 2016.

I think you should immediately to change CPU in i7-6700K.
That's only model capable overclocked to work similar and 20% slower in multi applications than i7-5820K and i7-5930K and he will need you for Windows 10.
Example buying 4x8GB i5-6600K DDR4 instead 2x8GB and i7-6700K is not small mistake only you will not see that now.
Someone to ask me I would install single 8GB memory only to save for i7-6700K and than install later better kit.
You don't need even 16GB of memory ... 10-12 is enough... but even if you plan something where 4x8GB need you in that situation even more need you i7.
Listen me, for 2-3 years will remember what I told you when your i7 overclocked beat AMD Zen and give you same score as newest i7 generation on default clock.

You are right, but let's say i'm building this, waiting Pascal and Kaby/Cannon Lake (if Intel will made them compatible with Z170) because at the moment i don't want to spend 450€ or more for a CPU
