Hi neilhart,My experience with the ASRock Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming ITX is only with the Kaby Lake i7-7700T CPU.
Please check your specs. I think that there is an I7-6700T and a I5-6600T but not an I7-6600T. Anyway I did purchase and use an I7-6700T for some time before I damaged it in a project to the point that it would not boot and may have damaged a motherboard or two... Not a good thing to have going on, so I isolated that CPU and no longer use it. While it ran, I did have good performance from it with low temps and good cooling.
My current Kaby Lake experience is with an I7-7700T and an i3-7350K both systems are on my desk currently (I usually have two to four systems up and running when working on projects).
Now for my view of the world... I have never been found of mixing steps: meaning I would run Sky Lake CPUs with 10 Series motherboard and Kaby Lake CPUs with 20 Series motherboards.
Thank you for your reply. I am now looking at different options for the motherboard for space reasons inside the G4 Cube. I will be using the i7-6700T (sorry for confusing in the last message with 6600T i meant 6700T).
I am looking at the following H110 mini ITX motherboards: Asus H110T, Asrock H110TM R2.0. I would love to get the Gigabyte GA-H170TM but it is not available in europe unfortunately.
I noticed with this skylake cube build you initially used the Asus H110T. What is your experience with this board? Do all features work with Sierra?
