Thanks! Yes, I'm not sure if it is full RGB, but you can change it to different colors, like blue or green. There are multiple RGB LED headers on the mb as well if you decide to go that route.

It is a bit, but it having wifi/bluetooth was requested so I ended up turning to the X470. I would have liked a B series board which featured wireless but there are none yet. I could have gone with the X370 motherboard from Asrock which also has wireless, but I figured I'd go with the latest in hopes of greater compatibility.

The CPU will probably be upgraded in the future.

It's probably a bit overkill yes. I tend to gravitate to parts I've had good experiences with in the past. And with this being a computer for someone else I wanted to get them something I'd be comfortable with giving them without reservation.

It definitely depends on the game. It could run some more demanding games at low setting possibly. But this one wasn't built with gaming in mind. Plus you could go with other cheaper parts and get yourself a video card to put in it as well.

I've never had problems with drivers for my card. I have always used the drivers directly from the AMD website.

Sorry this is a bit late, I don't check this site all the time. The Nepton is running strong just like the day I bought it. No issues at all so far with it, very reliable piece of hardware. For mounting, there is some type of grounding material attached to the bottom of each standoff (it looks dark gray), I had to make sure each of the four standoffs were positioned with the side of the grounding material face down on the motherboard. It was creating some weird issues of not letting me POST past the memory stage until I fixed my problem.

I hear ya, my color scheme definitely wasn't a priority in the build. The noctua fans will look very abstract to a lot of builds out there no doubt. I say if you can live with them looking like that, go for them. They are pretty exceptional, worth the premium. I'm sure there are comparable high end fans out there but I mostly went on word of mouth about the noctuas and came away very impressed.

Yeah I am able to fit another fan at the bottom of the case, I had one in there while building but took it out at the last second because I didn't buy an extra noctua and I didn't want to use the stock case fan. Otherwise I would have one there, I may or may not buy another noctua and put it down there eventually.

You have excellent taste.

You have good tastes! I spent a good long time adjusting my decisions prior to skylake release. I can say I am fully happy with my choices. I'm sure you will be just as happy!

No problem, good luck on your build.

Yes it should fit, but it will very close to touching the video card. Mine has a backplate on it so if yours doesn't it should give you a little more room. I was thinking of putting mine there but it was a little too close for me so I moved it down. You may not mind as much though.

Yeah I know what you mean, Sandy is a wonderful overclocker to be sure. You will be fine!

Indeed it does, I enjoy new tech so of course I overindulge a little bit.

To be honest, because the stupid 6700k is so hard to find... And because it wasn't such a big deal to me, I can upgrade later if needed. Probably not though. I agree though the 2600k is still very capable, but I wanted the new skylake features.

Mostly just for new motherboard features coming from my old board. And the high ddr4 just cause.
