check out the xeons they may be cheaper and offer the same performance that is what im considering. The problem is my i5 4690k is still insanely fast and out performs most i7's in game benches.

So I looked up a bit, those Xeons aren't all that cheap, some are even more expensive than the actual i7 2011-3.
Although they have much higher cache and cores (I've seen a lot of 6-8 cores like the E5s).
As far as cooling goes I'm thinking going for something way better like a Corsair H100i or a Noctua NH-D15.

Z97 mobos are like overpriced as fuck here. My other plan was just going for a Z170 platform with a i7-6700K

be careful with the noctua. I built killah's machine with that heatsink and we couldn't fit her ram in slot 1 ( im pretty sure thats what we used)

Yeah I'm aware but I think you can seat the fan a bit higher so it doesn't block the ram slot. Otherwise I might just go for an AIO seems like the easiest way.
