Intel Core i7-6800K 15M Broadwell-E 6-Core 3.4 GHz LGA 2011-v3 140W BX80671I76800K Desktop Processor

Pros: Works good was able to get 4.375 on a H100I V2 without going over 75 degrees Celsius.

Cons: All of the other reviews are correct, it hits a wall when overclocking and gets really hot stupid fast so you need to pay attention to temps when overclocking. But I think for a 6 core 4.375 is respectable and only knocked off on egg.

Other Thoughts: I love to benchmark and stress test I am kind of disappointed that any more voltage and it scares me.
My 2700K ran 5.2GHz its entire life and as fast as 5.3 benchmarking on an H100 so I am a little disappointed but again this has 50% more cores to heat up.

ASRock X99 Professional LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: It looks good and does pretty much worked out of the box. Was able to get 4.375 out of my 6800K with H100I V2 and never crosses 75 degrees Celsius.

Cons: I guess because I updated the BIOS I now get this error on every boot up.
"mac address are invalid in both cmos and flash" and I am forced to hit F1 EVERY time I boot up.
And if I switch to the secondary BIOS no RAM is detected so I can't go back because I cant access the backup BIOS that is supposed to be a fail safe.

Other Thoughts: I know it's a budget board but it is their top of the line. I really expected better quality. I will reach out to ASRock and hopefully come to a resolution that doesn't require me disassembling my new PC and going for weeks with nothing. I will do another review if ASRock can help me.

CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 128GB (8 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Desktop Memory Model CMK128GX4M8B3000C16

Pros: They work as described.

Cons: Horrible noise from one of the cooling fans it whines and then hums like it is out of balance. If I unplug it no more noise. Not the quality one would expect for such expensive ram.
As I sit here and type this it's noise is maddening. Plus the holders for the fan keep it so far away from the ram I am unable to run push pull fans on my 240mm radiator in an enormous Thor V2 case. This is my 1st corsair RAM and it will probably be my last.
Merry Christmas to me...

Other Thoughts: I am not sure how to proceed with this situation. I no longer have all the packaging as it almost all got tossed in after Christmas clean up. I will follow up with another review if Newegg or Corsair can make this right.
