I'm thinking about upgrading to an i5-6600k because my CPU seems to be bottlenecking my GPU(GTX 1070). I have an AMD FX 8350, ASRock Fatal1ty Killer 990fx, and G.SKILL Sniper 8gb (2 x 4gb) 240 pin DDR3 1333. 
Also, which one of these motherboards is the best for i5-6600k? I'm gonna use it for gaming mostly. http://www.microcenter.com/site/brands/intel-processor-bundles.aspx (Please scroll down to where it shows i5-6600k bundle)
Thank you!

If you want to upgrade to i5-6600K, you will need to change the memory also. Skylake use DDR4, DDR3 is not compatible. Because the ASRock motherboard is a ATX one, all the ATX except Z170M will fit your case. All of these are good motherboards, through I recommend Gigabyte as they make good mobo and is cheaper here.


For the memory, this is good: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233823


Some cases might support both ATX and mATX, so you can also use mATX motherboard, however I need the model of your case to help you.

CPU: Intel i7-8700K 5.3 GHz ------ RAM: 32GB TridentZ 3600 MHz CL16 ----- Motherboard: Asus ROG Maximus X Formula ----- GPU: Zotac GTX 1080 Ti Amp! Extreme ----- Storage: Samsung 960 Pro 1TB -- Samsung 850 Pro 2TB x4
