Default Time for upgrade

Hey all,

Its been a while hope everyone's doing fine!

Right to the point, I'll be replacing most of my sig PC with this build:



MOBO:
ASRock X99 Extreme4 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com

ASUS X99-A LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com

CPU:
Intel Core i7-5820K Haswell-E 6-Core 3.3 GHz LGA 2011-v3 140W BX80648I75820K Processor-Newegg.com

Heatsink FAN:
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1366/1155 and AMD FM1/FM2/AM3+-Newegg.com

PSU:
EVGA SuperNOVA GS 220-GS-0650-V1 80 PLUS GOLD 650 W ECO Mode Fully Modular NVIDIA SLI Ready and Crossfire Support Super Silent Continuous Power Supply-Newegg.com

RAM:
CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 32GB (4 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2133 (PC4 17000) Memory Kit Model CMK32GX4M4A2133C13 - Newegg.com

GPU:
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1070 DirectX 12 GV-N1070G1 GAMING-8GD 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 ATX Video Card - Newegg.com


- I'm already set on the 5820K no need to go over that one. Where i could use some help is on the mobo, which one would you recommend within the $230 range? I don't plan on doing any SLI, but I will OC the CPU ( no liquid cooling though).

Any feedback regarding other parts are very welcome, cheaper, better, e.t.c.

Just fyi I will be using this PC mostly for gaming, VMWare, and lots of video transcoding.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Why not save the cash and get yourself an Ebay high core count Xeon instead of bumping platforms when it won't matter?

Not a fan of buying off ebay PC parts.

what do you mean by that?

I will not get a decent bump in performance compared to what I'm using right now?

I went from a 3960x with an Asus X79 WS board to a Xeon 1650 V3 (basically 5930k) and eVGA X99 FTW K with no difference in performance (I only did it because free CPU and cheap review sample board from a friend). Since your 2500k is already at 4.5 you'll only get performance increases for gaming through a new GPU. The reason I said Ebay Xeon is because you can get SB-E 10 core samples for around 150 bucks a pop. Understand you don't trust Ebay, but you can return DOA samples for a replacement or refund. I already did it myself. This would be WAY better for VMs and transcoding than a 6 core that's being used in the background for gaming. Always remember, when running VMs your host will consume some of the resources and with a 6 core + HT you're limited to the amount of threads you can allocate. I'm sure you already know this, but if your VM work is serious you might want to consider a second machine in case new hardware crashes on you.
