Hey I have little experience with motherboards. Any help finding a good one which is within a $175 budget?

MY SPECS:
2 Sticks of DDR4 RAM 8 Gigs
Intel i5 6600k
GeForce GTX 1070
My case is big and has support for all sizes
Only one fan as well as CPU heatsink

Please let me know if you need more info!

Personally, if at all possible, I would jump ship to a new platform, if you can, unless you are only playing older, and/or lightly threaded titles. You could pick up a Ryzen 5 1600 AF, which is basically an R5 2600, and a B450 board, for that kind of budget. In the high end/newest AAA titles, that 6600k isn't going to give you a smooth experience, sadly.
