Intel Core i5-6600K 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80662I56600K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 530

Pros: Extremely fast.
Won't see a noticeable jump in performance going to the i7 Skylake.
Worth the few extra bucks to jump from the 6500 or 6600 to the 6600K series if you are gaming - you will see more stable framerates, and higher minimum frames per second.
Won't bottleneck with any of the newer generation video cards, GTX980, GTX1080 etc.

Cons: Doesn't come with a heatsink+fan, but no K series does, as the stock cooler isn't great for overclocking.

Other Thoughts: If you aren't going to overclock, just get the i5-6600 with the heatsink+fan assembly for free. The performance will be the same.
Upgraded from a 1st gen i7-920, definitely worth the upgrade.

5 out of 5 eggs Fast, using with Win10 Pro, no issues 06/12/2016

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E500B/AM

Pros: Windows 10 compatible.
Much faster than the budget PNY XLR 240GB SSD I had been previously using.
Boot times are noticeably faster, and response time to drive is noticeably faster - real world performance increase, not just benchmark scores.. although the 850 EVO has great benchmarks.

Cons: No 2.5" -> 3.5" adapter included.

Other Thoughts: Great drive, I always recommend the Samsung EVO or PRO series to everyone when building/upgrading PCs.

G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Intel Z170 Platform Memory Kit Model F4-3000C15D-16GVKB

Pros: Fast setup, chose XMP profile on my Gigabyte z170XP-SLI board, showed up at DDR4 3000 with the correct timings.
Was much cheaper than any other DDR4 memory at the same speed and timings.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Heat spreader design could be more aesthetically appealing, but I don't even have a window on my case. After all, the heat spreaders are pretty much for show.
