I personally have 2 x Fractal Venturi HP 140's in my 350D at the moment and when I first opened them up, the build quality felt on par with Noctua. The rubber thingys on them were just top notch, highly recommend them :)

Just pulled the trigger on this ASRock board and 16GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR4-2400MHz. :D

Now... all I have to do is wait until I can get an i7-6700k, the availability of which still isn't there from the retailers I usually use for PC hardware.

The i5-6600k is available, but I kind of want the extra threads and the higher stock clock speed the i7 offers for the various stuff I do other than gaming.

Hopefully the wait won't be too long! :(

That ASRock board looks good.
I couldn't find a 6700K anywhere that wasn't at a highly inflated price.
I decided to hold off for now.

It's the same here for the 6700k, a number of places have it listed at the standard price but they haven't got it in stock. Any place that has it in stock is charging far too high a price. :(

I picked that ASRock board for a few reasons:
  • It's a generous amount of USB ports at the back.
  • Most of the USB ports are 3.0 and not 3.1 like some of the MSI or Asus boards. I've no real need for 3.1 yet, and I could see it causing some compatibility problems too.
  • All those 3.0 ports come from the Intel Z170 chipset too instead of a 3rd party controller.
  • There's DVI, Display Port & HDMI at the back, meaning I can use the onboard graphics for my current and likely future monitors if I have to.
  • It doesn't have a Killer NIC, the standard Intel is fine.
  • It's got the upgraded Realtek ALC1150 audio codec.
  • It's priced quite well too.
I just hope I don't have to look at it in the box for too long. :p
