Best best z170 motherboard for overclocking looking to sell my 5960x for 6700k coz i dont edit or render waste of power, i only play games and i know that games take clock speed more then cores so i want to buy a 6700k or a 6600k and overclock the shit out of it. and i know i will have money for custom water cooling so 4.8ghz should be no worries

Any of Asus' offerings are pretty top notch right now, tho overclocking isnt really dependent on the motherboard, it's more so the CPU that determines it. You could have the best cooling solution for your CPU in the world but get a shitty OC, its all about dat silicon babyyyyy.

Im quite sure I can get a decent amount of backers to agree with me when I say that OC'ing is mostly CPU dependent. The only issue I could see a motherboard having when overclocking is if it has shitty VRM's and stuff like that but all of the known-name Skylake board makers are pretty reputable and wouldnt build their boards with shit parts anyway, so youre safe in that department.

I do remember hearing that they did, but I still dont see it having too big an impact when buying a high quality board from a good maker.
