You can't over clock that CPU. I'm pretty sure at least.

When talking about gaming, just get the i5, but if you would like to do rendering/editing or anything like that, the i7 is worth it.

You put an i3 in a $900 budget?

Sounds good. I think I'll follow your advice and get the fans. I'll look into the power supplies as well.

Yes, I am going with red and black(even though everyone else does that, I just like how it looks). I went with that PSU because it is reliable and has black sleeved cables. I will post an updated version of the build. Like I said I changed to skylake.

Also, you listed the same PSU but 100 watts less. It is currently the same price.

Any particular colors you would suggest that fit the color scheme? Within the same price range of course.

Thank you for your input. I do plan on overclocking in the future however. I did follow your advice and will be getting the skylake i5 6600k. With all changes made, it was only about $100 more than your suggestion, which I am willing to pay.

I have considered the H7 but it really offsets the red and black look. Any alternative you would suggest?

Also not enough black and green parts. I would definitely do a black and green build if there was more.

Thanks for the reply, with the price it's hard to turn down. I'll probably get it.

I'm getting the same CPU that you are getting so I wanted to know how you like it. Is it preforming well?
