Go with a good mechanical one

Gaming Keyboard
idk. i like the one on my laptop a lot. like the way it feels. its easy to push, and i know like where all the keys are. i dont press some by accident.

so im going to look for something close to that and wireless and not long lol

Any brand should be fine, since you are using the stock cooler anyway. I have a ridicolous amount of MX-2 (i think), that so far never let me down. It's rather old-ish though.

Video about applying thermal paste.

Also, let your system settle for a while before you even start thinking about overclocking. You should not really need it.
i know how to put thermal paste on lol. and anyways, it comes on the heatsink already. no need to put any on.

also not going to be OCing for a while. not at least until i need it.

The keys are in the same place for all US qwerty keyboards. Some may have extra keys for games or macros though.
