Pros: Boots right up with my z170/270 mobos. Slightly faster than 6 th generation Haswell, CPU's

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Purchased this CPU as a replacement, although It does run about 10c cooler than a Kaby Lake 7700K.


Pros: Slightly faster than it's Skylake 6700K predecessor.

Cons: It ain't free

Other Thoughts: Had to replace my Skylake 6700K, because the memory controller apparently was malfunctioning. Could only boot up with one stick. On the other hand, Kaby Lake CPU boots right up with 64 GB 3000 Gskill sticks using a GA-Z170X-UD3 mobo, including a required BIOS update.

Pros: Inserted all four modules into Z170 Gigabyte Motherboard, using an Intel Skylake 6700K CPU. The latest F20 BIOS recognized all 64 GB of memory at rated speed utilizing XMP. Booted right up without issue.

Cons: Fedora 23 only detects 62.9 GB of memory. Presently, I don't know why, but really no big deal.

Other Thoughts: Very pricey, but worth the expense.
