I's there a magic amount of grams that your fat intake should be under assuming all other numbers are legit? For example, my fat intake remains (realistically) under 75g a day. I recently switched from egg whites to whole egg omelets in the morning which raised my average daily fat intake substantially.
Does under 75 sound about right for a clean bulk? My daily maintenance is around 2775 but it fluctuates.

You may also want to cook your eggs in olive oil to help with the cholesterol > testosterone conversion

yeah, it does depend on who you ask; it seems that everyone is so different but there should be a baseline. I have heard that you shouldn't go above 35-50 grams but that seems impossible if you plan on adding even a tablespoon of olive oil into your diet.
Anyhow, thanks SilentBob187

It really depends on how you respond to fats vs carbs. I personally would separate the fats and carbs and eat protein fat and protein carb meals

I think everyone is right. It all depends on the individual response to fats, carbohydrates and protein. I am currently consuming 40P/40C/20F coming from lean sources of protein, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats (flax, fish, etc.). I have also experimented with more saturated fats while bulking and it worked fantastic.
Learn your own body and what works best for you. I enjoyed a high fat and low carbohydrate diet for a while and found it beneficial to cut weight fast. However, for the long run it was not for me.
