Skylake 6th generation Core i7 processor...

With a z170 motherboard it easily Overclocks using baseclock increases. So with that being common knowledge for all Skylakes they now become the best bang for buck. Buy a cheap 6400 and crank it up or 6700 like me and kick butt

The best CPU you can get for a killer gaming computer, it does it all. True, you cant overclock it, but the power it already has will give anyone 70 fps+ at any game with a capable GPU.

I think the performance is impressiv for gaming as well as other stuff. It has very good thermals if you count in the performance it gives. Also you can overclock it with a z170 mainboard which makes it a great deal.
