What is the cheapest mobo compatible with the comet like i9-10900k cpu?
And will a cheap mobo bottleneck the cpu?

Thanks.

that cpu can be over 300w of power consumption. no "cheapest mobo" is going to be able to handle that!! not to mention the massive amount of cooling needed to try to keep it cool.

you are much better off getting a ryzen cpu instead. this will allow for a cheaper mobo and cooling and still net great performance. do yourself a favor and avoid the intel chips for now until they can get 7 nm working right.

there is no use at all trying to spend $800+ on a cpu and then try to somehow build the rest of the system for $300 more. it's just not gonna happen.
