Yer X99 is definitely the best way to go it would seem, I noticed your cart in the other section, wise move if you make that decision 8-)

In terms of raw CPU performance, for those upgrading from Sandy, Skylake is worth talking about. CPU performance over 4770K at stock is also interesting.
As for a daily system, the Z170 plaform opens up a lot of opportunities for motherboard manufacturers and you'll be filled with PCIe storage options, the latest network and USB 3.1 controllers and/or HDMI 2.0 support from IGP on specific mbs.
Then for those that don't upgrade much, DDR4 is also getting nearer DDR3.

It's certainly a mainstream upgrade path, not really a high-end upgrade path unless you want super fast RAID 0 PCIe storage.

Well I pulled the trigger. I picked up some benching gear
I had to go with a 6600K as the i7 6700K's were out of stock. Was a combo deal @ newegg with an ASRock Z170 Extreme4

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813157633

This will be my first non ASUS mobo in quite a long time. With some G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series memory.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820231901

I am curious to see how this will stack up against my 2600K setup. The 6600k dose not have HT but we will see.
I will post up my results shortly

I'll be putting it under water initially to get used to the platform then if all goes well probably move on to somthing colder :mrgreen:
but yeah we should start a thread for the 6600k, post testing results for comparison ect. 8-)

I got a Hero with a 6600K until I can get me mits on a 6700K, 32GB kit of Ripjaw V 3200mhz, H110 AIO
Memory set to XMP
Core and Cache set to 4.2GHZ with all voltages set to auto
Samsung SM951 AHCI 512Gb Windows 7
Intel 750 1.2 GB Windows 10
been using a ASUS 970 DCUII mini card, don't let the small size fool you, it is a very capable cool running vid card. just stuck a 980ti on this morning
Having so much RAM may be limiting me somewhat for overclocking but I decided on this kit so I could possibly transfer to my X99 board later when maybe the new Trident kits get released

Using it as my daily rig at the moment, Samsung SM951 AHACI version rocks at full speeds, for some reason that I have not figured out yet the Intel 750 nvme drive is not operating at factory speeds, still very fast and I can't tell the difference in use but benchmarking it is slower than on X99 board. The storage options is kind of what i wanted the Z-170 for so this is a little disappointing, but again I can't tell the difference during use as it is still blazing fast.

AISuite overclocked the CPU to 4700mhz and RAM to 2933mhz, it wasn't really stable, vcore was set to 1.47 to get that. I am waiting on a 6700K before I explore anymore overclocking

Nice Menthol
Good to see you still tinkering. I hope to see you on the battlefield soon. Really nice setup you got

I noticed you had same board when I spotted your xtu result posted on the bot Menthol ;)
I have just got finished setting up , installing Win10 , all the drivers/software and updated to the latest bios (0603 released last week) so just about ready to start tweaking. The bios is crazy.. so many settings to play with lol but so far Ive been having the most fun playing with the pump speed as Ive never seen a setting in a bios for that before :lol: . I tried one setting earlier and It auto set boost up to 4.3Ghz with 1.3**vcore, ram at a slack 1066Mhz and not sure what cache was at. Temps were pretty good if the AI Suit was reading correct at about 26*c idle and around 50*c under a quick run of Wprime for load but my rad is sat next to the open window and it has been quite a bit cooler today so I guess that is helping a lot. I don't think my old ss will handle the load unfortunately.

The MVIII Hero has memory presets where the MVII Hero did not, thank you ASUS, although I haven't relied on the presets on the RVE as much as I did on past platforms but they will get your memory in the ballpark settings for you.
I had a set of GSKill 16GB 3000mhz CL15 from my RVE that I used the first week but being for the X99 platform I couldn't get them to boot anything past 2666, so keep that in mind when purchasing RAM, GSKIll Ripjaw V series for Z-170/X99. I haven't seen any of the new Trident sticks yet but the heat-spreaders sure look nice. Still waiting on a 6700K in the US of A and I see Newegg now has the ZPower Titanium in stock, although tempted I will wait and see what the ASUS Extreme board looks like

Some of the guys are playing around with flashing the X99 kits to Skylake SPDs and that seems to help with clocking.

SPDtool was what we used years ago not sure what was used for DDR4. Personally I have not had much issue with my memory on Skylake so guess I got lucky.

Ive been having big memory issues with these Kingston on the MVIII Hero, I havnt done a great deal of testing as Ive swapped setups for team cup but they will not boot with the xmp profile or any of the preset oc profiles on the board. I had them running at thier rated 3000Mhz only by manually entering it without ocing cpu and leaving all timings on auto which set 16-18-18-38, they are rated for 15-16-16-35 default!

Well I got a late start last night. Started setting up the OS decided to go with win 7. had a little trouble with the mouse and keyboard dropping out when entering the os. wasted about an hour till i finally noticed a setting in the bios. i have to stop thinking ASUS this is my first msi board. so much to learn. Theres Allot of settings I found digging around last night. I am currently @ 4.3 GHz @ 1.04v adaptive v. I hope to have more time today to play. will post up more as i go.
