new build $1000 what motherboard?

Will have $1000 to spend next week on an upgrade, old motherboard died so using a cheap Chinese z77 atm to get by...

Sites: pccasegear.com.au // umart.com.au

Current build:

CPU - i7 3770k
Mobo - ASUS MVG Z77
Mem - Platinum 1866 DDR3
Water - Corsair H100i
Controller - Scyth 4 Way
Wifi - USB Stick

PSU - Strider Plus 750w
Case - Corsair 650D
GPU - ASUS 1080GTX
Sound - ASUS Essence STX
HDD - Samsung 3TB
SSD - Samsung EVO 250GB
Fans - Noctua 3000RPM

Can reuse the second part above, so need CPU/RAM/MEM/Water

I'm looking at;

CPU - Intel i5 9600KF - ( KF removes the onboard GPU? Saves a few dollars, never really utilized HT, so an i5 should do? )
MEM - T-Force Delta 3200 2x8GB - ( Seems pretty dope, could never really overclock my current Corsair Platinums... )

Leaving a motherboard... There's so many and they all seem to do the same thing. Hmm, I'd like to link up the memory, a new cooler and lighting to synch; so probably a Gigabyte or ASUS board? I've heard ASRock aren't so good this round. ROG series seems pretty expensive, already had a V Gene for a while so no qualms getting something different. The Gigabyte Aorus Pro Z390 looks nice, only need 2x PCI slots and I have no idea when I'll get M.2 drives, WiFi on board would be nice instead of using USB sticks. I have a sound card too, so onboard doesn't bother me. Lot's of features for overclocking.

tldr; need cpu/mobo/ram/cooler -- can use current gpu/drives/psu/etc -- have $1000 to spend

SilverStone has a ton of Strider models so could you please be more exact
Reason why i am asking is many of the Strider models are not all that good so you might need to replace it depending on the model

As for upgrades dont upgrade right now less than two weeks before computex

I generally don't recommend water cooling over air cooling. There are air coolers that beat many water coolers out there, and they have the benefit of lasting more than 3 years without needing replacement and are cheaper. The only drawbacks are looks and case compatibility (primarily RAM clearance). And why do you not re-use your H100i?
There really is nothing wrong with Asrock btw. Their BIOS is not as mature as other vendors, but their boards are good quality.

For $1000 AUD Max you're really better off with Ryzen imo... And it can save you a bit of money. Right now we're in the same situation as back then, where there were questions whether an i5 was enough, or whether one should go i7. Now, i7 users can still use their CPU, but i5 users have stutters because 4 cores is no longer enough. We're at the same place today, except for 6 cores rather than 4. An R5 basically works like an i7, because they have 6 cores and 12 threads, while the i5 has 6 cores and only 6 threads. And since you're overclocking, I suggest this;

Bonus (I chose 2600X rather than 2600 for the video due to your willingness to OC). I'll let you decide whether this performance difference is worth $250 - $300 more;

Hi,
I'm liking the asus tuf mark 2 frankly cheap no frills and 5 year warranty.

Wait for the Ryzen 3000 series to launch, they're supposedly going to be announced on the 27th at Computex. Even if you decide to not go with AMD, hopefully it'll put pressure on Intel to drop prices to a reasonable/competitive level.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)
Intel i5 6400 Skylake @ X4 4588mhz (+69.9%)
