I just built a 6700K/GENE rig. Using a M.2 950 Pro boot SSD with an 850 Pro storage SSD. Been straightforward, trouble free, but it's my only Z170 experience.

Mild OC, I built it for non-techie family and wanted to make sure it's solid stable. 4.5Ghz @ 1.37v Adaptive, stays 70° or less with Noctua NH-D14. I really like it, if I was building a 6700K system for myself I wouldn't change a thing (maybe a new 960Pro, they weren't out when I bought the parts).


One thing I just thought of: It doesn't have on-board wifi. I installed a wifi card in the X4 PCIE slot, it's going to a place where they don't have whole house ethernet. If it was mine, I'd just use ethernet. I was kinda surprised, I guess I thought modern mobos would have wifi.
