Nov 2016 - My first Skylake Build

PC Hardware and Components - forums.hexus.net
Hi all,

I've been very happy with my X99 system and soon, I'll be replacing all the Crucial RAM with Corsair Dominator Plats and I've been planning to add a Linux 'hack' box for quite sometime.

Sure, this build is totally OTT For a 'linux' box, but it will also dual-purpose as a 4K ready, gaming system; should the need arise.

Ordered all the bits I need from B&H USA simply because they offer the cheapest DHL shipping rates.

Here's the 6700K

and some larger bits that arrived:
