Default Opinions on my thoughts on a computer upgrade, please

Just recently upgraded my wife's EDIUS editing PC and now it has leapt ahead of my main editing PC as far as speed and performance go!

I am looking at 3 parts that I plan to upgrade in my existing EDIUS editing PC.
Nothing definite yet.
What are the thoughts of the resident hardware experts here?

M/B Asus Intel Z170 Maximus VIII Hero

CPU Intel Core i7-6700 or 6700K (no plans on overclocking, just use it as it is)

Memory Kingston HyperX Fury 8Gbx2 DDR4-2666(PC4-21300)CL15 1.2v

The rest of the computer will continue together with the 3 new parts.

Oh, I had problems for a while with finding a proper slot for my Intensity Pro 4K card on the old M/B.
Any thoughts on whether there will be a set-up problem with this new M/B?

Over to you . . . .

Regards
Douglas

Hi Douglas,

Have you compared the specs of the Asus Z170 motherboards? You could save some money and go for the Pro MB.

AFAIK, the Maximus only has Display Port and HDMI outputs, is that OK for you?

If you are not going to do any overclocking then the i7-6700 is a good choice, but how do you plan to cool the CPU? This might affect the choice of RAM, as you might need a low profile type to allow clearance for the CPU cooler.

You should also check the compatibility of the memory? You can do this from the Asus website. Here is the link for the Maximus, but do check if you decide on another motherboard type:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/MAX.../HelpDesk_QVL/

I am sure others will have different opions to motherboard choice. I have always used Asus, but that is not to say that MSI or Gigabyte are not equally good.

The IP4K normally works better when placed in a slot that runs through the chipset rather than one that runs through the CPU.

Another thing to check is what devices conflict with each other. On some of the lower Asus Z170 boards we tested setting the PCI-e 3 4x socket to 4x actually disables 2 of the SATA sockets

Thank you John and Adam,
I am in no rush to update yet.
So I am still open to thoughts and would even like to hear possible alternatives to the 3 bits of hardware I chose to start the ball rolling.

Regards
Douglas.

PS. CPU cooling? Never did that. Always thought that Intel's own fan provided should do the job.
I know that inside my computer case the temp varies between 27C and 30C.

I am testing on Edius 8 WG : Asus Z170 Pro Gaming (+6700K) + BMD IP4K and all projects seem fine.

Skylake CPU's don't come with a heatsink and fan, so you have to buy one separately.

They do in Japan! I installed one a few weeks ago into my wife's computer and I am pretty sure that the thing with the rotating blades that was included was a fan.

As a result of John's suggestions, I am shifting my focus from the Maximus to the Z170-A.

Douglas

Sorry, I should have said higher end Skylake CPU's don't come with fans. The i5 6600 does, but the 6600K, 6700K don't

I see
I have the 6700 without the K
So that would explain that.
Thanks
