Intel generally follows a tick-tock philosophy for new processor launches. The tick represents a shrinking of the manufacturing process - 32nm to 22nm, for example - while the tock is indicative of a new architecture based on the leading process of that time. This has been the case since 2007.

Asus Maximus VIII Hero, Z170, ATX Motherboard + Intel i7 6700K Unlocked Quad Core Skylake Processor with HT Bundle is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Offer and Amazing Products Best package I could find online which fitted my budget perfectly and was not let down by Scan which sent my parcel in a huge box that my children had hours of fun in. Was my first purchase with Scan and was despatched on time and delivered exactly when it was meant to be so very impressed. The Asus Hero VIII is a brilliant piece of equipment packed with a huge amount of features and easily setup. The processor is my first Intel CPU in years and has blew me away with lots of potential for further overclocking but sitting beautifully at 4.4GHz at present. All in all i'm impressed with the equipment and with Scan

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic bundle, great savings! Delivered next day. The bundle is great and saves quite a bit compared to buying the motherboard and processor separately. You'll also guarantee the two are going to work together. The motherboard is of really high quality, very well made and well packaged with all the cables and accessories needed. Highly recommend the board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I bought this to begin my first ever PC build (So obviously I'm a complete novice), I honestly couldn't be happier. So simple and straight forward to setup, I would highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price bundle, simply incredible performance This was my first proper PC build, after having a prebuilt i7 2600k + old Msi motherboard, I decided to take the plunge on a Skylake CPU with an Asus mobo. After putting the build together, I was kind of blown away by the performance difference just from upgrading my CPU + mobo. I kept all my Ram, HDDs, SSD and GTX 780, then did a reformat to avoid driver conflicts. Rendering is noticeably faster as I do a lot of video editing, but additionally, games have seen a considerable buff too. CPU intensive games like Arma 3 are now playing buttery smooth, even in 100 player King of the Hill servers. I loaded in to the main base on a 100 man server for the first time to find I was getting 60-80 fps!! (See attached image). Before, with my i7 2600k at stock speeds, I was seeing about 25-33 fps at base, and drops as low as 10 fps. Now I hover around 40-60 even in demanding situations. For me, that sort of jump in performance was worth the upgrade alone. If you play CPU intensive games, and do alot of rendering/editing, this bundle is extremely powerful and I would highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Intel build for myself. Been building PCs for about 15 years now but never done an Intel build for myself so this was a bit of a present to self. ASUS Maximus VIII Hero - another great board from ASUS, have to say I'm a bit of a fan but purely based on the overall build quality and feature set of their products. An Intel board is something new for me having only ever taken the AMD spec for your money route. I'm just amazed at what the Intel board offers by comparison; PCI-3 3.0, USB3.1, faster RAM speeds etc. The board has the usual solid feel, good layout of PCi-E slots so you don't lose anything unless you SLI/Crossfire. Very user friendly BIOS and nice software option to boot straight in to BIOS. Stacks of PWM fan headers on the board and the inclusion of a Waterpump header too. I'm running an H110i GTX with the pump connected to the header and the two 140mm fans using the CPU fan headers...very quiet. Intel i7 6700k - I'm not a gamer/overclocker/bench-marker but I feel like I'm getting better load times, program response etc from the I7 over my previous AMD FX 8350 CPU. Power consumption is down compared to the AMD and keeping everything cool under load is easy by comparison too.
