    I may add it appears the X99 CPU is a bit on/off, either running at 3.6 GHz or 1.2. Nothing else.

    3 1/2 hours of stress test finalized with the Z170. Very consistent and very straight lines. Somewhat cooler than the X99 with a CPU average temp of 56 C.

    Almost forgot. Here are the results form the SSD benchmarking. It would be interesting to get some comments on all these results.
    X99:

    Turn off Rapid, it is not representative of real speeds. It's too dependent on RAM etc. On Z170 it looks real good.

    Below the results without Rapid. Samsung has developed quite a nice feature with Rapid. Though the numbers above are not the true read and write performances, it seems Rapid improves the experienced performance quite nicely. Said with some reservations as I have so far not installed any "real" software.

    Nothing wrong with that either. Looks like new Rapid helps more than before. 4K never used to jump that much with Rapid on.

    Quite so. I like the Z170. It performs very consistently and it feels responsive. More worried over the X99. It is not very consistent, it seems, and as seen in the previous posts, there are some worrying signs. Here is another SSD benchmark. Note the difference.

    Could be because of drivers. Also, DDR4 is faster so Rapid scores should be higher too.

    This last test was for the Intel 750.
