Intel recommended the i7-6850K to me for a Hackintosh build since I'm prioritizing file i/o support. This processor has max of 40 PCIe lanes which sounds pretty great to me. Problem is finding a corresponding motherboard... it seems like boards with the X99 chipset are rare or not in production anymore or something. Anyone know anything about this? Any similar processors with more accessible mobos? Didnt really wanna spend the $700 plus on the server board Intel also recommended.

Also thinking about processors with less # of PCIe lanes support but not sure how low I should compromise.
