So right now I have an AMD Phenom x6 1070T that turbos to 3.5GHz and honestly it still does pretty well for most things, BUT I think its time to move forward and my favorite game, Kerbal Space Program, has significant slowdown issues when many parts are in physics load. Also, I'm running an Nvidia GTX960 FTW 4GB. I'm upgrading to skylake with the Intell i5-6600k with this package: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.3020936 and using this CPU cooler : http://www.xigmatek.com/product.php?productid=104&type=overview and while it doesn't specify that it is compatible with the 1151, it was produced before the 1151 came out, and it IS compatible with 1150/1155 and from the research I've done... if it works for those sockets, it will be fine for 1151. Has a backplate to help support the weight, but I've heard about bending issues.... I'm just checking in with you guys to make sure that there aren't any better deals out there for me or anything I missed. If I can save around $40, I'm definitely getting a budget SSD to load OS and a couple games on.
