What about an AMD Octacore cpu optioned with highest amount of caches and
highest clock speed available, and of course full complement of RAM that 
the mobo can handle?

If you still want intel, then choose
Intel Core i7-4790K @ 4.00GHz 

Of course, needs to be a desktop, not a laptop.

In my experience, the most reliable mobos have come from ASUS.

PS: I do not want to start any mobo reliability wars/discussions.
It's just my personal experience.
