    Question  Question by Yuri

    Is the stock cooler good enough for this CPU, or should i buy a better one? In average i use the computer 8 hours per day, mostly gaming. Also do i need to buy the thermal paste separately, or it comes in the package? It's not listed in the packaging contents.

    Answer by declant on Sunday, December 18, 2016
    The stock cooler should be absolutely fine for this CPU. The thermal paste is included on the cooler.

    Question  Question by Ben

    Will this work on a Gigabyte GA-Z170X-SOC FORCE Motherboard?

    Answer by matthewh on Wednesday, April 13, 2016
    Hello Ben, Yes this CPU will be compatible with that motherboard.

    Question  passive cooling for Intel i5 6500/6600 by Gordon

    Will my Scythe Mugen 2 Quiet Cooler (ie passive/fanless) be adequate to cool this processor? The case is an Antec Fusion Remote MAX. I will primarily be using it for a music centre. Thanks.

    Answer by MATTHEWH on Sunday, March 27, 2016
    Hello Gordan, I would not recommend using your cooler as a passive/fanless cooler with that processor in that case.

    Hi Joe,

    The RAM you have chosen will not work with the motherboard, you need DDR3L (low voltage (1.35v)) for Skylake motherboards, apart from that the system looks fine.
