Looking to upgrade, as my mobo died

Hi people, my mobo (asus z170 pro gaming) broke, it wont boot past the bios, tried switching out all parts except the mobo, flashed the latest bios update, reset the mobo entirely, didnt do anything, so now I'm looking to upgrade.

I have an i7-7700k, but I'd like to have more cores, preffereably 8 minimum for my video editing adventures, as this one is also kinda worn out and now working as smoothly as I want it to, so I'll be upgrading that aswell, but I have too little knowledge of chipsets and future proofing my build to draw a conclusion on what to get. My current upgrade includes an  Asus Prime X299-A paired with an i7 7820x, as this gives me the specs I desire, but I have no clue if this is a solid purchase for the future, as I maxed out my potential with my old motherboard way too quickly.

Any suggestions on what chipset or board/cpu combination to get would be enormously appreciated, aswell as other tips/must haves.

Specs: 
Asus z170 Pro Gaming (done for)

i7-7700k (still working but eh)

GIGABYTE 1060 6GB
Kingston 4x4 DDR4 at 2133 MHz
Corsair VS450 PSU

Kingston 256GB SSD

Thanks in advance, 
Jack

Do not buy skylake X

 

If you are going HEDT get a x399 motherboard with something like the 1920x/2920x.

 

That or grab a 9900k or just get a new motherboard for your current CPU.

either go to Ryzen, TR or the 9900k

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

That's a waste. Get a 9900K + ASRock Taichi Ultimate instead.

Best way to improve video editing speed is change from snail called Premiere to anything else. I liked Premiere (options, etc) but every time I must work on that slow snail software, I want to break something. So if you want to have more cores for Premiere video editing, then you'll be surprised - i9 9900K will be probably the same slow as any other i7/i9 processor, no matter how many cores.

 

My advice - you have very good CPU, buy only motherboard for it.

Mate you either go i7 9700K / i9 9900K on a Z390 or you go Threadripper on x399 if you really need PCI-e lanes and quad channel memory.

 

Intel's x299 makes no sense what so ever as it is absurdly overpriced for no real performance impact, for video editing on Adobe for instance the i9 9900K is outperforming the i9 7980XE thanks to iGPU acceleration.

Corsair VS450 PSU

I'd consider this garbage PSU to be the issue with your system before your motherboard being honest.

Yea I get why you feelthat way but truth be told, that's the only goddamn part in my whole build that hasn't had any problems at all, and I have no way to link it to the problem I'm currently having

Thanks for you insight man, got a mobo suggestion with the i9 9900k?

I'm not gonna switch from Adobe as I don't like any other software that's out there right now, but I'm curious on what you use!

Premiere, but now rarely. I was also trying DaVinci and it was much faster.

Pretty much any Z390 Aorus line up.

the x470 one. That's about the best you can get for ryzen, together with the 2700x or a zen 2 chip that will probebly be annaunced at CES, you might want to wait just a little longer for that

You did? You know that one only has 10 phase power, and most aorus boards 12, right? The aorus master is an absolute beast on the z390 side

I like the way you think ahead, but I'm not willing to switch to AMD, have never heard any positive things about it from friends, although I am tempted to do a visual multicore build later on with AMD components

you know ryzen is way better than the older bulldozer chips? those fx ones could run really hot, but ryzen is keeping it pretty cool. exept for treadripper, but what do you expect with 32 cores?

True that, I just don't have any faith in AMD CPU's just yet, a few more gens will possibly convince me tho.
And like I said, I have had several friends and other people from work use Ryzen for the same stuff I will have to use it for, with around the same tech knowledge as me, and all of them ditched the latest Ryzen's for Intel again and that weights a bit more then specs on the internet for me. But when I will move into an office or need a seperate PC for work only in a few months I will most definitely look into AMD more, I just don't want my personal rig to be AMD.
