If you already have the SSDs then no point discussing it, but that article is 3 years old. We have M.2 SSDs that do way more than SATA 3 RAID can do, not to mention the diminishing returns I mentioned before. They are also using a dedicated RAID controller and the sequentials aren't even close to the 950pro (with 6 drives even). If you're using onboard the speeds will be slower.
Okay so 6700k for CPU, seems good. CPU Speed > Core Count.
I'll post a makeshift build and have you OK it, if that's alright.
As for the SSDs, I do have them already and I'm very happy with their speed in quad raid setup. I might go for the M.2 later down the road, but really happy with them now.
