Go to Newegg and enter your CPU to find a compatible motherboard

On top of what I have stated previously in this particular discussion, Intel will completely terminate all support for all remaining 6th-Gen Core i-series CPUs at the end of this coming September, meaning that any new Intel drivers to be released after that date will now require a 7th-Gen or newer CPU just to even install at all. Accordingly, the Intel graphics drivers to be released beginning in October will now require a 600-series or newer Intel HD/UHD/Iris integrated graphics just to even install at all.

 

That is one more reason to completely abandon your current build, because your CPU will at this time have only two more months of driver support and updates remaining.

You are strictly limited to those Intel Socket 1151 motherboards based on a 100- or 200-series chipset. Unfortunately, these motherboards are no longer available new at this point, being that the i5-6400 (6th-Gen) CPUs are now almost 7 years old. And very shortly all support from Intel for the 6th- and 7th-Gen CPUs will be discontinued aside from archived drivers, as the forthcoming Intel graphics drivers within the next few months will completely discontinue support for all Intel HD Graphics, making those drivers now require Intel UHD Graphics (for the 8th-Gen Coffee Lake CPUs) or newer just to even install at all.

 

And you do not want to use that i5-6400 for video editing at all these days, as it is weaker in overall performance than even a recent i3 with a newer chipset. (Heck, I would dare say that it performs worse than even a cheapo Alder Lake Pentium G7400.) And any "new" motherboards for the first revision of LGA 1151 will cost you a lot more than some newer-gen CPU/motherboard combos these days.

 

And you might as well scrap your current build plans at this time because any higher-performing CPU will be heavily bottlenecked by that GTX 1050 Ti.

It should work OK for HD but if you want to edit 4K you might want to invest in a better system. I would have fears of buying a used motherboard.

Under this circumstance, it isn't worth building around such older-gen parts. Any "new" (as in unused in box) motherboard will cost the thread originator much more money than some newer-gen CPU and motherboard combos that perform better than that i5-6400 because such a motherboard must be shipped directly from China. (I really meant that the motherboard alone would cost $400 to $500 USD by itself after all the extra charges.) Worse, shipping from China will take months, if not forever, before the thread starter will ever see the "new" motherboard.

 

And then there's the case: Most cases that still have external 5.25" drive bays will have internal drive bays obstructing the entire front of the case, impeding future upgradeability and case airflow.

 

This is exactly why my recommendation to abandon the build plans for the time being, and simply purchase an all-new PC, stands.
