Yeah, Although you could potentially upgrade to a 7700k at some point if the prices come down enough

I wouldn't really call it overkill though. Most of this build is what I would consider low-mid range for the time and that's what I'd consider a mid-range PSU. 650w isn't that much and where I live you pay more to get extra wattage or full modularity compared to the premium of more efficiency. Also, 80+ silver is fairly rare in power supplies from my experience so most people jump straight from bronze to gold

Actually AMDs stock coolers are decent nowadays but they seem to have added a CPU cooler to the list so might have taken the pics before installing it

I assume its for playing more intensive games at 144hz or the monitor could be a stand in until they can afford a better one

tbh id say its worth buying a better PSU that you can keep through a few upgrades instead of a cheap one you need to replace. The locked cpu and z270 chipset is more of an issue I'd say. Even if it was z170 he could've overclocked the CPU with a BIOS hack.

do you mean a i7 9700K? or an i5 - 9600k? because only the i7 is worth upgrading to

I got mine from alza.co.uk but it did take a bit longer than expected to ship. It was technically £85 but shipping was £14 so it was only worth it because I was buying the motherboard with it. It's still cheaper than a 2600 but the 2600 is only a few extra quid when you factor in the extra shipping cost and it does have a higher base clock so if you're not comfortable overclocking it's still a valid option at around £110. I'd suggest going for whichever you can find cheapest as they're essentially the same CPU just with different out of the box frequencies. On the stock cooler mine was boosting to 3.8ghz before I undervolted it but from what I've heard getting an 4-4.2Ghz overclock is fairly common at around 1.3-1.4V. Saying that, even at 3.2ghz it's still a monster for the price in multithreaded applications and games when paired with a mid range GPU

Yeah but if I can get more performance for free without extra noise then might as well do it

Yeah I'd suggest just getting some extensions from Amazon if you can. Most of them at this sort of price are fairly similar but getting ones with cable combs looks a lot better imo

Thanks. I should've mentioned I've already overclocked my ram to 2666mhz @ 1.25V. I was gonna push it further if I can but haven't got round to it yet and it's performing fine so far.

Yeah, it's just a bit tricky to find in stock at the right price, especially since a 2600 is only about £105 here in the UK. They're just some standard Silverstone extensions I got off Amazon when I first built my PC a few years back. Think the 8 pin one is a phanteks one I got from overclockers UK. Only cost me about £15 total but makes a build look a lot nicer imo.

Hey nice build. How are temps/noise under load with the stock cooler? I've ordered this CPU but no aftermarket cooler and was wondering if you'd recommend one?

Hey man, I've got a 3gb 1060 and was wondering if you could see how much vram you use while running modded Skyrim? I know we won't have exactly the same mods but I assume you have some form of mod with increased resolution textures? I'm deciding between this gpu and a used Vega 56

Hey, great build. How are temps under load with a fully air-cooled build in that case? I hear it's a bit warm but really like the design. Unfortunately I'm also a sucker for silence and currently run both my CPU and GPU passively daily. This is in a mid tower though and I'd need a new CPU cooler along with a motherboard if I switched cases. I'm considering a low profile passive option (my CPU TDP is only 53W so think I might be able to manage it with some tweaking) but I think it'd be pushing the case to its limits. What are your thoughts based on your experience with the case?

I've got a g4560 which is a step down from the g4600 and can play pretty much any game I have thanks to the hyperthreading (although it can bottleneck a little)

It's not as bad as you'd think with a lower tier GPU but I'm definitely gonna. Thoughts on ryzen vs a 6600k or 6700k?

Not sure if you chose that value for the CPU clock on purpose. Its something to do with floats in C++

Nice build. I'm considering downsizing my rig to a node 304 but I'm not sure if my GPU/PSU combo with fit. My power supply is semi modular but it's 160mm long, which is the max length with a long graphics card. Is there any strain on your graphics card from the modular connectors or is it ok?

Also, there is a power button on the case. Just below the usb ports and headphone jack
