Intel Core i7-6700K 8M Skylake Quad-Core 4.0 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80662I76700K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 530

Pros: The LGA1151 socket is now the bread and butter of Intel's line up, and the 6700K shows it off the's pretty fast, runs fairly cool and is easy to overclock (not that you need to). As a "daily driver" the 6600K/6700K models are good for anything thrown at them. As you go higher up the line (6800K/6900K or 5000 series (i.e. 5820K, 5930K etc.)) you start losing overall utility and end up trying to figure out why you spent that much money. DDR4 is a better memory choice than DDR3 and that ends up making this CPU worth the money.

Cons: Cons: I build high end customs, but that's another story...the 6700K has nothing on the i7 4790K. Yes, it's slimmer and does more things more efficiently at a time,'s clock speed is the same, turbo clock is a little slower, it runs hotter and has a lower tolerance for that heat. It's the 1st CPU (AMD's included) I've ever run air to and had shut down running benchmarks, most notably in Catzilla at 2K with a GTX 1080 doing most of the work. Everything I build to sell is liquid cooled for a reason!

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend this CPU because it IS the gateway to the next round in the LGA2011 v.3 battles. I personally sit in front of 3 computers daily, one is a 6700K, another is a 5930K and my all-time favorite is STILL my 4790K as it soundly beats up on the other 2 in single-core and all-core performance, performance per dollar and simple utility even running on DDR3. Having said that, the 6700K would be my next alternative with good performance and with DDR4 having it's back. And it certainly beats having to try and choose a Xeon built for each individual application it's good at!

Skullcandy S2FFFA-003 50/50 In-Ear Canal Stereo Earbuds with In-Line Mic - Black/Black (2011)

Pros: Super bass, clean mid and treble, great volume. However...

Cons: I don't and will never use Apple products, they can build their "specific product inherent" empire without me. So, these earbuds DO NOT WORK when the plug is fully inserted into ANY non-Apple device. Not my computers, not my Sansa mp3 player, not my Ceative Zen, not in my Blackberry, not in my friend's LG phone...UNLESS you pull the plugin jack out a little and hold it there, and then they're wonderful! Powerful, dynamically balanced, beautiful sound. And any site you look on for these shows suggested addons of all different brands of mp3 players. I knew the mic wouldn't work, but I couldn't imagine that sound would be ANY kind of issue. I was misled by "suggested" or "also bought with" products on multiple sites, and will be requesting an RMA shortly. Apple's still making sure only their stuff fits their stuff. These work fine on my brothers iPad but not on my Nexus 10.
