Hello Everyone!
I need your guy's help with a new PC I would like to build. Here are the links:

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/32v4t8

I would like to upgrade from my old PC and I would like this new PC to last many generations (like GPUs and CPUs) and definitely many years before it dies on me. If money and finding the parts isn't an issue, which processor goes well with these parts? Both lists are the same, just different processors. I just need to figure out either the i9-12900K or the i9-10900K. And if I pick a specific CPU, which motherboard is best for the rig? The main uses will be for gaming, content creation (Adobe Premiere), and Blender renders. (Also can these parts even and work together?)
Thank you so much!! :)

Go with a 12700k. The 12900k is not worth the extra $218. Use the savings for some better SSD's. CL18 3600 performs about the same as CL16 3200, so some money can be save there also. I do not know of any white Z690 boards. Asus has some silver heatsink ones, that would work with that AIO's pump/block.
