    6700k with a z270 board

    Dear Forums. Hi Guys. Since now Z270 is getting more and more on the spotlight, i have some questions before i hang myself on the pole!.

    1. Can i use my 6700k on the new z270 boards? the reason that I am asking is that i find more appealing the new ones. I am not going to do 5.0 or anything. some light 4.6. If i can use these 6700K is better the ROG or Strix models. (i also own a 1080 A8G model. If the board will work ok without any problems, it will be nice to someone to help me or guide me on the settings. I use bios only. no apps, since day one i can not use those.
    2. I own F4-3200C16Q-32GTZB right now. these modules are ok to use on z270? i check the list and as many letter change depending the configuracion. I am ok with it?
    3. Cooler, i have a H115i. will work ok? since these model have all by software, i can use the AIO port to put the 1 wire there and the rest on the CPU fans?

    Any help will or experience will be nice. I could get the new 7700k but since i have mine i can start with it. later on the road i could purchase one.

    1. Yes.
    2. You will have to try. As its DDR4-3200, you may need to manually tune to get things stable, or you may not.
    3. Yes, plenty of fan headers for you to use.

    1.) Both CPU's are compatible with 1151 sockets and the 6700K was tested on Z270 motherboards so yes: http://www.hngn.com/articles/220475/...erformance.htm

    2.) Use G.Skill's RAM Configurator to check RAM compatibility. Your model of RAM is supported by Z270 chipset MB's but check for the specific MB you have/will purchase: http://www.gskill.com/en/configurato...859&model=2866

    3.) Cooler will be fine.
