Skylake Slim PC Core Components
LGA1151 (Skylake) Intel® 6th Generation Processor This PC supports Intel® 6th generation processors, with improved video, memory and PCI Express controllers integrated to support onboard graphics output with dedicated chipsets and power to support 4K video at 60fps. Socket 1151 also supports up to 64GB dual-channel DDR4 memory in 4 DIMMs, and up to 20 PCI Express 3.0/2.0 lanes. Intel® 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor-based processors are among the most powerful and energy efficient CPUs in the world.
Quiet Hard Drives Every PC we sell comes defaulted with some of the most silent hard drive options available. Or, if you are looking for total silence choose an SSD! Solid-state drives (SSD) have no moving parts, so they make no noise, have blazing fast read times, and are more reliable than standard mechanical hard drives.
Quality Asus Motherboard We feature the latest ASUS® motherboards in our quiet systems. ASUS® is the world's best selling and most award-winning motherboard manufacturer. They provide supreme reliability, top-notch cutting-edge features, and excellent manufacturer support. Our motherboards contain fanless heatsinks and heatpipes to effectively cool the chipset heatsink and voltage regulators, without the use of noisy fans.
High Quality Memory This slim PC comes defaulted with high quality Kingston® memory. We use Kingston® memory because it is highly reliable and features a lifetime warranty. The Streacom FC5 Slim Desktop or Home Theatre PC has options for up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM.

Will I Benefit From Skylake?
Skylake (the technology used in the Z170 Chipset and Socket 1151 CPUs) is Intel’s latest line of consumer oriented CPUs. As of this writing, there is only one Skylake CPU available, the i5-6600k. The i5-6600k is a quad-core CPU running at 3.9GHz. Overall, it is similar in performance to i5 Socket 1150 CPUs, but with added features. Eventually, Skylake CPUs will outperform current Socket 1150 CPUs, but right now that isn’t the case. You can still purchase an i7 Socket 1150 PC which outperforms the general performance levels of a Socket 1151 (Skylake CPU), for a lower cost than the new Socket 1151 CPU.
Then Why Would I Want to Purchase A Skylake PC?
Several new features are included with Skylake CPUs that aren’t included with Socket 1150 (New Haswell) CPUs. These include:
Improved Graphics Support | Out of the box graphics performance (without the need for an added video card) has nearly doubled with Socket 1151 (Skylake) over Socket 1150 (Haswell and Broadwell). Socket 1151 also includes full 4K support at 60 fps and includes expanded support for DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.4, and Open CL 2.0.
64GB DDR4 Support | Socket 1150 CPUs maxed out at 32GB DDR3 RAM support. The Intel Z170 chipset and Socket 1151 allow for 64GB DDR4 RAM (in most systems). So, if you are doing memory intensive work, you could probably benefit from using a greater amount of high performance RAM in your PC.
Expanded M.2 and U.2 support | Socket 1151 (Skylake) is capable of greater M.2 and U.2 support (Asus Z170 motherboards are all compatible with the Asus Hyper Kit necessary for lightning fast NVMe drive support).
Kaby Lake CPUs
The Z170 motherboard used in this system not only supports Skylake CPUs, but also supports new Kaby Lake CPUs, which feature improved speeds and added bus lanes.
