Your call. If you're doing any overclocking, you're gonna want to buy a good cooler.

You should be fine though, as long as you're not doing some video editing/processing stuff or playing high-end games.

True, but some mobos allow you to "boost clock".

I was just giving general advice, assuming he ever wants to do that stuff (and gets the parts to do so) :)

I thought the skylake processors did not come included with cpu fans since they are expected to be OC'd or boost clocked. When I put together my rig, the skylake processors only had K models, but I did fall out of the loop not long after my rig was finished up, so I did not hear that they'd released non-overclockable cpus. Did they make it that the fans are included in the non-K models?

they always have non-k skews for basically every thing except the x99 chipset

You won't use more than 8-16gb for a long time, I have 16 and havn't come that close.

What Super said. 32 is a bit overkill unless you're a serious power user; I have 16 and it's sufficient for me 90% of the time:
I always have at least 6 internet tabs open, around 3 messaging programs, 2-4 game platforms (steam, uplay, etc), 4 teamspeak tabs, a MySQL server, two text editors, as well as miscellaneous RCON programs and/or windows explorer tabs. That's not including any video games I may play.

Occasionally, 16 GB becomes a little inadequate, but that's usually a reminder to restart my computer. But you can imagine that the vast majority of people aren't going to have nearly as many programs running, so 16 GB is plenty for the majority of gamers.
