    o.k well I looked at the TDP for the i7-7700k, it comes in at 91w which is a jump from the cpu you have now i7-6700 which is 65w, not sure if any one can backup and say yes or no if it will work, my guess is that it will work but your gonna have alot more heat, the cpu coolier is not the best and your gonna have to keep a eye on the temps, otherwise upgrade to water cooling which is alot of work.

    as for the gpu, either get what you have picked "Turbo" or the founders edition, ideal to push all that heat out of your case and not around the case, as the heat will only rise and give you higher cpu temps. yes people have installed the gtx 1080ti but your need a bigger second power brick or use a external power supplie. but again this is some work to get to work together.

    also the ram won't work, the max I would go to on either of the cpu's above would 2133mhz, here are the links to both cpus and there said the speeds on them

    ok gone for these

    http://uk.crucial.com/gbr/en/rog-g20...productDetails

    recommended by crucial and lifetime warranty

    and a Samsung 960 EVO M.2-2280 250GB instead of changing cpu, everywhere it seems the i7-6700 is ample

    just hope its ok for a while once sorted

    Hello cavalier666,

    I was wondering, did the motherboard run the I7 7700K? I read that some users tried to run it with a the 2101 BIOS version, but was unable to boot. Did you?

    Edit: I barely read all the post and just saw that you didn't take the CPU. My mistake!
