I want to upgrade my Mobo and CPU to something with more cores that is going to provide a substantial improvement in batch processing of photos via Lightroom 1500-2000 at a time

Heres my current PC (excluding hdd)

1 x ASUS Z170-AR Intel Z170, DDR4, ATX, LGA1151 Motherboard @ $259.95 = $259.95
1 x Intel Skylake Core i7-6700K 4.00Ghz, 8MB, LGA1151, Unlocked Processor, No Fans @ $499.95 = $499.95
1 x EVGA SuperNova 650 G1 650W 80Plus Gold Full Modular Power Supply @ $199.95 = $199.95
1 x NZXT S340 Mid Tower Case w/ Window - Black @ $149.95 - $29.99(coupon discount) = $119.96
1 x Noctua NH-U12S CPU Cooler with NF-F12 PWM @ $129.95 = $129.95
1 x Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 @ $179.95 = $179.95
1 x EVO 960 500gb
1 x EVO 850 500gb

Budget approx $1000 for Mobo and CPU & Cooler that will work with the rest of my gear

Afternoon Milutiche,

In order to achieve a noticeable gain you will need to go straight to the 8700k for the extra cores as well as clock speeds.

I've also included a Z370 so you can overclock your new chip further to extend the gains.

I've also added a D15 to ensure you are running cool and quiet.

Please have a look over the below quote and let me know your thoughts.

2700x@ 4.2Ghz
16GB AorusRGB@ 3200Mhz
860 Evo 500GB, 4TB HHD & 6TB HDD
GTX 1080ti Strix
S340 Elite Hyperbeast
