    I am still debating between the 8700k and the 9900k., but wanted to see what is realistic (since I know the price goes up with cooling and MB when you want to overclock.

    So..I want longevity.. I don't mind a super stable overclock (as long as it's easy to obtain), but want to keep this around and keep my $$ as low with bang for the buck.

    So if I go the 8700k route..what MB do I need to get if I want 64gb ram, (2) m.2 drives, GTX 1060, and USB 3.1 Gen 2 that will provide me with a decent OC and not have to spend more than $60 on cooling?

    its hard to make a suggestion without knowing your use case. you can achieve a mild oc on pretty much anything.
