    Planned new Build looking for advise.

    Over the break I lost my Gaming rig, Yes it was old, but it is now time to build another. Currently This is what I have in mind. Looking for advise..

    Cooler Master Mastercase Maker 5 Mid Tower

    Intel Core i7 6800k 3.4Ghz 6-Core
    ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming Motherboard
    Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1070 OC 8GB
    Corsair Vengeance LED CMU16GX4M2C3200C16R 16GB (2x8GB)
    Western Digital WD Black 2TB
    Western Digital WD Black 2TB
    Noctua NH-U14s Multi Socket CPU Cooler

    I have a new SSD 250GB, planning on booting from that and also a 2 month old ATX 850w powersupply.

    Wrong motherboard for the 6800K. You need an LGA2011-v3 socket, not an 1151. X99 is the chipset you're looking for, not Z170.

    Your case will be big enough so I'd go with the Deepcool Lucifer V2 over the Noctua. Similar performance and costs MUCH less. Better looking, too. http://www.silentpcreview.com/article1443-page7.html

    I'd also look into GeIL White Dragon RAM. They make really nice looking memory sticks. http://www.kitguru.net/components/me...b-ddr4-review/

    is this a X99 or Z170 build??
    the mobo and cpu you have picked here do not fit together since they are 2 diffrent platforms.
    Z170 is LGA-1151
    X99 is LGA-2011-3

    Hi Mykyre

    Price to performance G.Skill is about as good as it gets plus G.Skill ram works great in the ROG boards.

    Unless you are going for a maximum overclock the Corsair LED memory should be fine and 3200mhz is a very good speed on Z-170 boards
    I have a 4X8 32GB 3466mhz kit of the Corsair LED, it works fine on both my X-99 and Z-170 boards at 3200 to 3400mhz, 3466 is a little finicky to achieve and keep stable
    I purchased the highest binned kit not expecting that to achieve that speed but as kind of insurance it would reach a bin or 2 lower with complete stability

    Everyone should understand that the XMP rated speed is not guaranteed on every motherboard or CPU, it is the maximum rated speed of that memory kit and nothing else
