[Gaming/Streaming] Build help and skylake questions

Hello all and thank you for the assitance , this is not my first build but it is my first in 5 years under new architetecture and features [skylake]


Where are you located? United states
• What is your budget? 1500$
• Will you need a monitor, keyboard, and/or mouse included in that budget? Only need a mouse
• Shall you be requiring an OS? No
• What will you be using this rig for? Streaming/gaming (at the same time)
• If gaming, what resolution will you be playing at? 1920x1080
• Will you be overclocking? More than likely
• Do you need a full build or will you be reusing some old parts? I already have the motherboard, power supply and case


I have read mixed reports of the h100i v2 reaching the motherboard in a define S case unless you put the fans pushing through the rad. Does anyone have an S and this cooler?

If I am streaming and gaming is the i7 6700k the ideal choice or will overclocking the i5 6600k give me the same results?

Will I need any fan extensions for proper cable management when putting 4 fans on the rad ?

Here is my parts list (adding a 1070 said unknown error so it does not show in the list but that's the gpu I will be using)

Well, as you can see from the links below, the fans seem to fit without needing to put them on top of the radiator. But it depends since the Z170-A has the shroud and a heatsink at the top part of the motherboard. I'd personally check to see if it fits when you get the components and if they don't fit, you can always put the fans on top of the radiator like you said or just put it at the front.

I was actually going to have the radiator and fans as the intake my fear was that the cooling cables from the h100 do not actually reach the front of the define S. I had read that you need to mount the fans on the back so the cables can reach the CPU from the front of the case. Thanks again for all the help!

*edit* I see what you are saying now from the pictures and it does seem to reach there with the fans pushing through the radiator thanks again!
