you are getting a z170 chipset, why not go for an unlocked processor

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

It's very similar to mind, minus a 970 and more storage. I love it, you will too.

It's not bad for the price. As for the rating...I rated it on systems I've seen. To get a 10, I'd want to see extreme edition CPU, high end mobo, SLI, premium case, custom loop cooling, massive SSDs, etc, etc... 

 

I always recommend a bigger SSD and cut the HDD out of the budget. You can always get an HDD later since they're cheap.

I'd recommend going to Windows 10 since MSFT is creating restrictions as far as DX12 and I thought they did a thing involving Skylake only supported on 10, iirc.

I also recommend dual channel memory configs.

You can not improve this build with out increasing the price all the parts are just good enough to purchase but no better you've done well to make a pc at this spec including 2 monitors for this price

If it was me I would try and get ddr4 so you can upgrade in 2 years instead of wanting to buy new mobo, ram, chip, and possibly even cooler

You can overclock locked Skylake processors.

Overclock. Using BCLK.

You can using BCLK which is the bus speed. It's tied to the CPU, RAM, and IGP on Skylake CPUs.

Yes you can.

I thought it wasn't tied to the RAM? If it was, how were/are people getting 150+ MHz BCLK without messing up the RAM?

In accordance with Anandtech's article:

The Skylake platform changes this – as we noted back in our initial Skylake launch details, the chipset and PCIe now have their own clock domains, meaning that the base frequency only affects the CPU (core, uncore, cache), integrated graphics and DRAM.
