If no win-7 is Linux also crapped from skylake

Not to mention 5930k & 5820k so there are plenty of other choices no need to buy a pain in the rear end cpu and board.

Yes, I read that, So then install from a dvd.
If you have an internal ODD (USB won't work), a Windows DVD, a PS/2 port and a PS/2 keyboard, then sure, you can do that.

DDR4 suppport, what else ????
Some 5–7% better performance-wise as usual, but the platform is more modern, with DDR4, 20 PCIe 3.0 lanes instead of 8 PCIe 2.0 for storage etc, USB 3.1, USB Type-C …

DDR4 support in itself is a good reason to buy Skylake. Why stick to DDR3 at this point in time? Why buy the next best?

5820K is certainly a good option for those who are looking at a 6700K. But say that you're planning to pick up a 6600K with a basic Z170 motherboard and 8 GiB of RAM. The 5820K with motherboard and RAM will be twice as expensive. A deal breaker for many people.

It's not a cheap mans world
There are cheaper alternatives if cost is a factor
All one has to do is compare ddr4 to ddr3 to figure that one out so by then cpu and mobo are at least not a budget buy

I don't know about the US, but in Sweden you'll pay 500 SEK (VAT included; ~60 USD) for 8 GiB Vengeance DDR3 and 600–700 SEK for 8 GiB Vengeance DDR4. I think that difference is small enough to make DDR4 the better choice right now.

Awesome, we have the exact same RAM! I paid 3500 SEK (~420 USD) for mine, but that was in January. Things have happened since then. And remember that DP can't really be compared to your average Vengeance RAM (that most people will buy) with respect to price/performance ratio.

Anyone has got this to work? I am on an Asrock Z170 Extreme 6 with an 15 6600K - so I used the DVD drive to install the OS (Windows 7).
I chose to install all drivers to it is automated just have to reboot and then the process continues. at the point where the USB 3 is installed and reboots the mouse and kb does not work at all.
I found an newer version of the BIOS 1.6 - You guys think this is a good idea?
