Default CPU choice for gtx 1080 sli

I'm trying to figure out which CPU to get for an overclocked system running 2x gtx 1080 sli plus a custom water loop system plus bunch of other stuff.

mainly for gaming.

hesitating between i5 6600k vs i7 6700k
i5 7600k vs i7 7700k

or extreme processors
or even 6800k pr 6850k. bit confused about which to pick

Can you wait for AMD Ryzen and the GTX 1080 Ti or even Vega? Vega is planned for around May, Ryzen and the GTX 1080 Ti should both be available in March.

Which monitor do you have or do you gonna buy?

go for the x99 current gen series.

so far only 6900x series are available.

Dont go for extreme instead 6900k is good to start. 8 core with 16 threads will do magic.
