What processor would be best for me?

Hello! I plan on getting a B460 motherboard and I wanna replace my old motherboard and processor with some new CPU's. On Newegg I saw that I have 2 options. An Intel Core i7-10700f or an i5-10600kf. Both perform exactly similarly, and I wanna know which is best for gaming?

I have read that the i5-10600kf is only limited to 2666mhz, and I have 2 x 8 gb sticks of 3200mhz RAM.

I will be pairing this with an RTX 3060 Ti.

 

And before you say anything, NO I do not intend to overclock. The only thing I would change to the CPU is the speed at which it runs at (Boost)

It depends on the use case. The i7 has more 8 cores but each is clocked at 2.9ghz, and the i5 has 6 cores and is clocked at 4.1ghz. Multitasking? i7 Gaming? i5

What about for future proofing? Will the i7 be better if I clock it too it's max boost or...?

Pretty pointless getting a B series board with a unlocked processor. Intel only allows you to overclock any K series or X series processor on a Z or X series motherboard respectively.
