I thought the max amount of supported RAM was 64GB, not 32GB. At least that's what I'm seeing on Intel's homepage.

this, that way you don't have to change the motherboard, pretty pointless if you aren't going to overclock it

I'm about to upgrade to this CPU from i5-6400.
Say, can this CPU run any game today at maxed out setting? (let say the GPU is 1080)
Is it futureproof for like 5 years?

But do u think i5-6600K is better? It's way cheaper here in my country (100$ gap), plus I only use my PC for gaming. No rendering, coding, emulator-ing, etc

In that case go for 6600k mate. For gaming only scenario an i5-6600k would be a nice choice.

depends on how far you overclock. the 6600k is about 20-30% worse in multithreaded workloads. if you can overclock it far enough then i guess it's better to get an i5.

In which process multithreaded workloads are used? I'll be only gaming by the way and thinking of getting a GTX 1070.

Yeah, I'm debating getting the 6700 instead of the 6600K but if it won't make a huge gaming difference then I don't want to spend an extra 50 bucks

i7 6700 is way cheaper actually. H170/B150 mobo + 2133Mhz RAM + i7 6700 is cheaper than i5 6600k + Z170 mobo + 2400Mhz RAM + extra CPU cooler. Apx. 60-70 bucks
