Hello everyone. I recently got my hands on an rtx 3070, but I think my CPU will bottleneck it, so im planning on upgrading that as well. My current CPU is an i5-6600k. If I upgrade I realise that I'll need to upgrade my motherboard as well. Basically, I'm asking for suggestions for a new CPU, and also a compatible motherboard. Thank you, all responses are appreciated!

Ok you have 2x8gb 2400mhz CL15. You can use this without a problem. However there will be lost performance. At its worst you could loose >25% but generally it’s more like >10% when using the type of RAM I suggested.
Ok. Do you think I should prioritize changing RAM or CPU?
