For air coolers you cant go wrong with the Noctua NH-D15. It is a very nice air cooler that will treat your 8700k well.

I have had several gigabyte motherboards, and never had any issues. I have a z370 Gaming 7 and love it. The Asus z370 Extreme 4 is one that gets a lot of praise as well.

As for the RAM vs the M.2 SSD, it is not even close. Get the RAM. For gaming, SSDs dont do a whole lot of help. I have a Samsung 960 EVO, and as far as gaming is concerned, I cant tell a difference between it and the 850 EVO. But in some games, you will see a difference in RAM from 8gb to 16gb.
