Here at TweakTown, we love to help. Be it from choosing the latest and greatest PC hardware and peripherals, through to reviews of the latest movies and video games, we go through it all to tell you if it's worth your money and time. But there's one thing that brings us all together - we like to sit on the bleeding edge of the latest and greatest and that sometimes make us hard to buy for.

 

We don't want to see your feigned smiley faces as you unwrap yet another pair of socks or a Dilbert coffee mug that wasn't even cool ten years ago. No, we want you to have a very Merry Christmas. So, welcome to the 2015 TweakTown Holiday Buyer's Guide. Feel free to "accidentally" bookmark the page, leave it open on the desktop for all to see, or go the unsubtle route by post links up on Facebook or leaving open catalogues or printouts strewn across the house. If they truly love you, they'll get the message. And just as the good book says there's more happiness in giving than receiving, your friends at TweakTown can sit back on December 25, content in the hope that at least one person was saved from another novelty gift you didn't ask for, nor want. You're welcome. Enjoy!

 

CPU: Intel Core i7 6700K

Intel's latest 6th Generation Core i7 6700K brings a new level of performance and features to the table this holiday season. The 6700K is possibly the fastest quad-core consumer processor ever produced, to top things off, Intel calls it their "Best processor ever". Pair the 6700K with a Z170 chipset motherboard for full overclocking support and the sky's the limit! Intel's Z170 chipset is equipped with the latest in cutting-edge connectivity, so you can toss in a few NVMe based SSDs to keep up with the processor. Intel's 6th generation 'Skylake' microarchitecture was also designed with Windows 10 in mind, so if you're looking for the latest in speed, overclocking and performance, then look no further than a system based on the 6700K.

While there may be more affordable cooling solutions out there, it is hard to deny the supremacy of the new Corsair Hydro Series sealed loop coolers! We highly recommend at least the H100i GTX, but only if you do not have the room for the H110i GTX for the utmost in what can be done with CPU cooling at this time. With chart-topping performance and support from the CUE software, these AIOs are currently the best coolers offered and they embody all of the best in technology and features for cooling your CPU in today's market.

Let's face it; NVIDIA smashed it this year with the GTX 980 Ti. It offers Titan X level performance, and in some cases, better than Titan X level performance. It will power through every game out right now without a problem, and into 2016. We can't wait to see what NVIDIA has in store for us in 2016 with Pascal, HBM2 and 14nm! Read our full review here.
