"Best" is in the eye of the beholder.

Since you're going to use a Socket 2011 board, your choices are restricted to Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge 2011 CPUs.    You don't need the "Extreme Edition" versions, but I'd get a hex-core unit to give you processing power commensurate with the GPU power you're going to have.    An Ivy Bridge Core i7-4930k would be a good choice.

If you want a less expensive alternative, the quad core Ivy Bridge Core i7-4820k is an excellent performer as well.   It's roughly equivalent to a Haswell i7-4770, but with much higher PCIe bandwidth due to the 2011 socket.
