    Simply bad advice...No need for X99 for gaming...what you have is killer for any game you care to throw at it and will be for quite some time to come! enjoy it!

    There are very few games that use more than 4 threads and with DX12 coming those cores will be used more efficiently...no difference between 4 and 6 or 8 cores showing. DX11 difference between 4 and 6 or 8 cores is very slight. With the OC you have working makes any difference meaningless...

    X99 is useful if you want to run 3 or 4 GPUs but since this is basically a waste of time gaming...2 card SLI is the sweet spot and you get that with Z170 perfectly.

    If there was any advice that I would have given is that you could have gone with the 6600k rather than a 6700k since gaming doesn't require HT and can sometimes even make it worse.

    Infact everything else is very much overkill haha. Enjoy playing every game for the next 2 years on extreme.
