There's nothing like that.  X99 is just a new chipset for Haswell-E CPUs.

QUOTE ME IN A REPLY SO I CAN SEE THE NOTIFICATION!

When there is no danger of failure there is no pleasure in success.

X99 is basically for the 5820K and 5960X as they are the newer models of I7, just below the 6700K which is better for gaming but not as good for encoding, video livesteaming, editing etc. Please don't try to put a 5820K on a 97 board because it won't fit, likewise, don't put an I7 4790K on an X99 board because it won't fit.

on the mother board topic.... Would you suggest one that supports 5960x?

http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/motherboard/#s=28 Take a pick. Just make sure the size fits your case, so if your case can only have up to ATX not EATX then pick an ATX, Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX, likewise, if you case can only support micro-atx, forget about getting an ATX

Exactly, which is why I said to not pick it on a Z97 board because it 'won't fit'

Your PC specs suggest that you posses an i7 5960X. How can you have the CPU and other hardware and not knowing what kind of chipset and mainboards in runs on?

Make a new thread. Asking for help on everything... Because... I'm just not going to bother, sorry if that sounds harsh from me but I really don't want to explain everything. I mean, if you're going to build a PC - you say you already have half of the things but did you do any research on this? For my first build I probably spent about 8 hours researching altogether, re-watching videos, reading guides and I eventually managed it. But if you've only done an hour of watching a 'building a Pc' video then that's not really enough. Ask people on a new thread for videos, guides etc that you should watch and then come back and ask us.
