hi all just a quick question would a 12700k get a bit more juice out of my 2080ti for 4k gaming over my 8700k I would go with the ddr5 motherboard too

Imho, probably not. I run a RTX 3080 with my 8700K(@4.7ghz) and @ 3440x1440 the cpu hasn't held back the GPU in the games I've played, but I'm also not running low settings to try and get as much FPS as possible I like my games to look as good as possible while maintaining good FPS. Higher resolutions usually more GPU bound.

A way to check is to watch your cpu and gpu usage while gaming. If the cpu usage is ~100% and gpu usage is considerably lower then you could possibly gain some FPS with a faster CPU.

At 4k, as long as you have 'enough CPU' (and the 8700K is still 'enough') the difference in FPS would simply not be worth it IMO....; save your money at least long enough to evaluate 13700K vs. R7-7800X CPUs in 5-6 months!
