Skylake-MOBOs coming soon
I see only 4 slots here. so only 4x16 gb ram=64
2. Shocking-see at the end
Chipset Power and Installing Windows 7
( What is XHCI environment ?) see below
The power into the chipset is now provided by a single power rail, rather than separate core/suspend rails, which should simplify design. Some other restrictions are also placed on PCIe routing signals, bringing the maximum length down from 10-inches to 9-inches, and also M.2 routing in PCIe 3.0 mode is also reduced. We are also informed that PCIe flex cable/daughter card arrangements are limited to PCIe 2.0 mode.
One big shock will be for Windows 7 users. By default, the Z170 chipset and BIOS will not support full USB 2.0 Enhanced Host Controller (EHCI) mode. This means that for a number of circumstances, USB devices will not work unless an XHCI environment in play.

OC motherboard, I'd wait a bit and see what was said about it.
The shown ASR-MOBOs are OC! or not?

I gave up OC when the 2500 Barton came out.
Yeah, what for? I guess it's for the challenge, because the current hardware is so strong that it's hardly worth the chance of crashing and corrupting the contents of your hard drive. After all, isn't 200 miles per hour enough? That extra 10mph may cost you dearly.
If your game doesn't run as well as you like with your hardware, get better hardware
The again, we are Sysopt! Crash and burn trying
Back when we were able to get 25 to maybe 50% increase it was worth doing.
1 to 3 % increase, not worth the hassel.
Apparently, Skylake will allow over 20%. Not bad.
I guess if you're running the latest Crysis version, it would help, but then your graphics adapter may become a bottleneck.
I just got tired of BSODs and oddball issues. Recently, my WD10ezex drive seems to become unbootable on ANY sort of sudden crash. I think we have another Deathstar on our hands. So far, I've had 3 of 4 of them die on me. This one seems flaky too. They don't seem to last a week.
Had not problems with the blue, of coarse it is about 3 years old.
But it is not the primary either.
Deathstar aka Deskstar.....that was good.
ok go to facebook asrock to see news about NEW OC MOBO.
i have a WD10ezrx.

cleaning contacts, replacing cable then repairing bootfiles. can only help with winxp.
128gb ram 8x16-kits available
see the ram-disk-performance towards the end: fabulous!
As you can see, the performance puts any SSD to shame. The mighty Intel 750-series SSD, for example, has a sequential read speed of maybe 2.7GBps. The RAM disk was hitting 8.7GBps.

limits of i7
at the end:
The Intel Core i7 4790K is by far the most affordable of the four CPUs and while it may be slower for exporting photos and generating 1:1 previews than the other CPUs for almost anything else in Lightroom it will actually be the fastest. However, the chipset it uses can only have at most 32GB of system RAM. This is more than enough for Lightroom, but if you use other programs that need more RAM it may not be the best choice for you.
