Ok I have finally got around to updating my PC image (window attracts dust pretty well on the case I do need to clean it soon... looking at the picture) and my PC specs (I think I added everything). I bought everything during the Black Friday weekend (got some deals on stuff) and had it built at the start of Dec. 2016.
I will add the specs again to this post.
OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
Case: Corsair Obsidian 750D
CPU: Intel Core i7 6700k @ 4.00GHz
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
RAM: G.SKILL TridentZ Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Intel Z170 Platform Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C16D-16GTZ
MB: ASUS Z170-WS
GPU: ASUS ROG STRIX-RX480-O8G-GAMING

PSU: Seasonic Snow Silent 750W
When I was first trying to use an XMP profile on the ram I was able to get it to run at 3600MHz sometimes and then it would give me overclocking failed errors when restarting now and again. I updated the boards BIOS from build 0602 to 3002 about 2 weeks ago... which now it won't even let me use the XMP profile just constantly gives me stability errors instead of the overclocking error on the BIOS version 0602 when booting the machine up.
So I've just been using the Asus Optimal setting in bios which slightly overclocked a few things (07% Overclock) getting the ram to run at 2933MHz for the last 2 weeks without any errors and temps have been fine on CPU with the slight overclocking which was done to it.
One question I do have since when putting the PC together could never find any information on this but my board has 2x 8pin EAXT12V connectors on it. I only ever plugged in the one and left the second one unplugged. I assumed this was to do with overclocking even more potentially... but only wanted to overclock the RAM to run at its specified speed of 3600Mhz instead of the default 2133MHz DDR4 speed. So possibly this is where my issues are? By not having power to both of these connectors? Had my dad help me build and do wire management on my case which he enjoyed (this case has a lot of areas to tie cables down) but he had no clue about it either other then our speculation on overclocking since we were unable to find any information regarding the board having 2x 8pin EAXT12V connectors on it.
