Running that motherboard here(actually one level below that one) with an i7 6800K and 32GB of DDR4 in quad-channel mode. Pretty darn stellar I have the thunderbolt option card as well but have yet to actually use it for anything(just trying to be "future-proof") 18 cores!!!

My man....sounds sweet.

Just trying to be forward thinking and avoid any compatibility issues.

Thanks Dave for the input


So it was a noticeable jump from the i7-3930k?

Actually, it wasn't that big of a boost, but the old rig was giving me some issues, and since I was looking at a total rebuild of the drive, I decided to do it on a new machine at the same time(old motherboard failed) instead of having to do it all over again in a year(yes, I am lazy)

I can get E5's 2xxx v4 series chips for about $600

But I think the 6900k looks pretty good also. (Actually a little better in most scores)

Broadwell (6900) is where it's at, my Sandy Bridge chips (3930k and E5-2687W) are getting long in the tooth

Ordered.

X99 Deluxe ii
i7-6850k
16gb 2400 DDR4
Old Video Card.

I am stoked......

I will probably get a M2 Samsung SSD - Those things are crazy fast.
The Board has a M2 slot and 2 U2 slots.

Super stoked.

$902 was the damage.

I'm using an Asrock Z270 Extreme 4 1151 with a Intel i7 7700 Kaby Lake 3.6 Ghz. And 16 GB of ram. I have great performance.

Just got win10pro installed on the M.2 drive.

It was easier than messing with the cloned backup.

Good things ahead.
