looks like he just picked the wrong part his little monitor thing on the pc shows 9700k at 5ghz
Im well aware of Intel vs Amd ram speed importance i was just pointing out that 3600mhz is nice but a ram kit with lower speed but faster timings will make a difference as i showed. Im not an elitest or anything just mostly wanted to point out that speed isnt a linear thing and there are other variables to the original commenter
not that good of a deal unless you can tighten timings. its gonna preform about the same as 3200mhz cl16 for $20 more
none of these even do cl19 for the 3600mhz so its still not even as bad as it could be for some games
Not sure if you're a first time builder but looks really clean and a nice part selection
For performance it really depends on the title. AC Odyssey, witcher 3, Farcry 5 etc are more demanding then normal games however titles like battlefield should run no more problem max settings and around 90 fps which is great especially if your monitor is a 144hz panel
PCPartPicker Part List
Made a lot of changes that overall is going to give you a better experience for a bit cheaper
Better gpu to utilize that monitor, newer and better performing motherboard, dropped your ssd and hdd for just 1 faster ssd so if you need more storage adding a hdd is a simple task, more ram which is going to be useful for streaming, and better psu with both a higher rating and more power and overall better quality, lastly swapped to the p400 as it tends to be thermally better then the p300 due to a bit more ventilation
Id imagine this would work but if youre skeptical you could try and looking on the corsair forums or reddit
What do you plan to use the build for, whats the budget, and what resolution monitor will you be using. Right away though the 1080 is outdated and pretty overpriced and the 8 core could be wasted.
I would try and get dual channel ram and if you plan on selling your older parts upgrading to faster ram. Ryzen loves fast ram like 3000mhz and dual channel is just a boost in performance.
Dropping to 2666mhz ram could save you a few dollars and not too much of a hit on performance however there isn't much to save money on
I'd reccomend changing ram to Gskill Trident z rgb ram. unless things have changed corsair use their own software and wont be sync with your mobo or you could swap to the non pro corsair vegence some older threads show these syncing with asus but not the Pro's. However they might not look as good as you want them https://de.pcpartpicker.com/product/RBs8TW/corsair-vengeance-rgb-16gb-2-x-8gb-ddr4-3200-memory-cmr16gx4m2c3200c16
It's best to make a list closer to black friday because prices are subject to change however there are some slight problems with build the way it is. Id recommend dropping down to 3200mhz ram, 3600 is going to be hard to push without loosening some timings especially with all 4 dimm slots being taken up. Additionally you might want to change the ssd as for $50 less you can get double the storage and still have an nvme drive such as the Crucial P1 https://pcpartpicker.com/product/pxKcCJ/crucial-p1-1tb-m2-2280-solid-state-drive-ct1000p1ssd8
I dont think the 570 will be doing too well for 144hz with high settings but the list itself looks good and all you should need to upgrade would be gpu as fortnite doesnt really utilize 8 core chips well like the 2700
you could've gotten your answer by typing asus wallpaper faster then this comment since its literally the first picture on google images or wallpaper engine on steam
I thought the price gap would bigger but because its only a 20 pound difference id go with the aourus master then
The aourus master will do whatever you want it to do for ocing but if you want to save money something like the taichi will be cheaper and also get the job done https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/TnhKHx/asrock-z390-taichi-atx-lga1151-motherboard-z390-taichi
The Master is a strong mobo but id make sure you're not using a weak cooler like a 212 evo for stock performance because at that point youre wasting money
For streaming you're going to want extra cores and threads so the 2700 is a no brainer. swapped ssd and hdd for just a 1tb ssd which is just nicer for keeping things in 1 storage and then adding hdds if you need them. Changed psu as 750w is overkill and the gq line is a bit weaker the the focus plus. Also swapped case to what looks like the h500 you chose but more airflow focused but if you like the h500 you can swap it back.
Also for the secondary pc id look to sell it if you don't have plans for it. Something like $300 usd seems fair assuming you keep it in decent shape and then upgrading the 2060 with the money you get
If you drop the cooler, get a cheaper yet still reliable ssd, cheaper and nicer psu you can upgrade to a 2070 which is going to net you a lot more fps upfront then a cpu that is already clocked higher then a normal 2600
if youre using a 1080p 60hz monitor and maybe turn some settings down or use competitive settings you'll do fine. You said by endgame your fps drops a lot so that could be the cause of some problems as fortnite just isn't good in general when it comes to endgames. I'd just say use the 1060 6gb and if u think it's doing good for you use it if not upgrade it when you can
This WD blue is a pretty reliable drive https://pcpartpicker.com/product/DgJtt6/western-digital-blue-1tb-m2-2280-solid-state-drive-wds100t2b0b
And for fans im no expert so i admit i could be a bit wrong but if you mount your radiator on top you want airflow for the front so 2 of these should help keep things cool and quiet https://pcpartpicker.com/product/QTtWGX/cooler-master-masterfan-pro-140-air-flow-1060-cfm-140mm-fan-mfy-f4nn-08nmk-r1
For gaming the 8700k will perform the same as the 9700k and save you $50 which you can use for fans or maybe a 2tb hdd as the 500gb ssd might fill up kinda fast.
https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3421-intel-i7-9700k-review-benchmark-vs-8700k-and-more This shows that for the most part their is only a 1-5% fps difference and at this point were talking past 144 fps where its not noticeable in real world performance
Because you want to play triple a games i kept the 2700x as newer games tend to be able to use more cores/ threads but i dropped the cooler as 120mm aios aren't very worth it and most likely wont do well in ocing that 2700x
Dropping the cooler and changing psu to a higher quality unit allowed me squeeze in a 2060 which is better then the 1660 ti.
Also dropped the rgb fan however if you wanted to you could add it back but this case really only needs an extra 1 for exhaust before seeing diminishing returns
PcPP has that already as long as you have the compatability filter on thats why you wont find the 280x normally on your build or a 360mm aio
Only thing i would recommend is dropping to a 2600. Fortnite is like other games like csgo where extra cores and threads aren't really utilized. However if u do want to do something like streaming or editing the 2700 will give better performance for that. Also if you drop to a 2600 i was able to fit a faster 500gb ssd and you could use some of the money still saved and pick up some decent 140mm fans for intake
can you explain to me what "cpu power" is? because to just about any other person who knows computers would say cpu power would be the strength of the cpu so when i present benchmarks that show the 2200g is faster im not sure what you mean by cpu power, especially since you can choose if you want to oc just the cpu and not the apu included as that is its separate thing
Where are you finding that the g5400 is faster? also the g5400 has integrated graphics also so not sure what you mean if u think the 2200g is weaker because its integrated graphics aren't as bad?
both videos and any other benchmark will show the 2200g is faster or just as fast as the g5400 along with the fact you can overclock the 2200g for essentially free performance also not to mention if you ever plan on playing games or editing and can use more cores/ threads a 1600 is $40 cheaper then a i5 9400f which is still on 6 threads
Both should allow any cpu to oc to 5ghz no problem assuming you have a good enough cooler but id go with the taichi as it seems to have more features like the post code debugger if you have any issues with the pc
A $20 h7 seems good however either way we both just used the wrong currency for this person and they also appear to sell refurbished which could be a problem for some
Mugen 5 cools at high level noctua levels for less money. The h7 is at $100 which is way overpriced
Build looks good other then maybe looking for deals the day of buying you seem set for a light gaming rig for your son
Wrong currency and a d15 is way overkill for a 2600
If you really want to save money and are okay with turning certain settings down a 2060 can still get the job done at a reasonable however a 2070 will allow you to turn more settings up or maintain more stable fps. but if nothing else please swap out that garbage psu
Even with gaming and streaming 64gb of ram is overkill so i downgraded to 32gb that also has rgb which will look nicer then the aegis but you can change if you dont like them.
Changed Mobo to a higher quality board which will be better for overclocks.
Swapped over to a 1tb ssd as wd blue is reliable and if you do then need mass storage adding hdds is easy.
Most importantly changed rx 580s to 2070 as now sli and crossfire should be avoided and the 2070 will be miles faster then 580s.
Changed case to nicer looking one and with a window so you can see the rgb fans however it does sacrifice a bit on airflow but shouldnt cause much of a problem.
Changed psu to a better quality and less wattage as now we have 1 less gpu to power and it doesnt have ugly red pcie connectors.
If i was you i'd build it then see how temps are normally. If they appear too high or the fans too loud you could change them but when you do something like upgrade to an 8 core chip you'll be limited more by that cooler then fans
I dont know if u know this but you cant oc with that 8700 so id recommend going to a cheaper motherboard unless you plan on upgrading to something like a 9900k in the future but even then you're going to also need to upgrade that cooler. something like this should get the job done for stock performance and maybe even a bit overkill still https://pcpartpicker.com/product/VDkj4D/asrock-fatal1ty-h370-performance-atx-lga1151-motherboard-h370-performance

Faster ram, way better gpu, and cpu with more threads and cores all for a bit less and a nice upgrade path
If your only gaming at 1080p 60hz you can still max games out and get 60fps with a 1660 or 1660ti and save money however if youre gaming at 1080p 144hz id reccomend not dropping down
Seems like hes either selling for exactly what he paid after taxes or making some money. Another thing is what is your use case? This will do pretty good for gaming but somethings could be changed to lower costs and still get the same performance
If you can find them for not too much more then yea id say its worth it to get a higher vram one
For gaming the 8700k will do just fine and still do fine in a few years as up until very recently 4 cores have become not the greatest value/ performer so 6c/12t should definitely do fine for a while.
Also changed cooler to an rgb 240mm aio which will cool A LOT better then the one you chose
Lastly changed the motherboard as for z390, asus should be pretty excluded as options. the gaming 6 or other msi/gigabyte boards will perform the same or better for less
That psu looks a kinda weak but should do fine for the 760 but i would look to replace it sooner rather then later. Other then that skyrim even with some mods isn't the most demanding however careful on using mods with better textures as the 760 only has 2gb of vram and might cause stutter
What will you use the pc for? 9700k might be overkill for your needs however using that stock intel cooler be a bad idea for most cpus in your range
The 1080 is a good card but that cooler is gonna be garbage and will make the gpu loud to maintain cool. If you are ok buying used which is close to what refurb is https://www.ebay.com/itm/EVGA-GeForce-GTX-1080-SC-GAMING-ACX-3-0-8GB-GDDR5X-GPU-Graphics-Card/223488324881?epid=26021689585&hash=item3408f13511%3Ag%3AoBEAAOSwj4Vct5i5&LH_BIN=1 this would be better as it would stay much quieter and cooler and a bit cheaper
if you have an addition to building pcs why not try multiplying?
Changed ram to a faster speed as its reccomended to get 3kmhz ram at least on ryzen if you have the money which a $1k budget falls in line with with this reasoning.
changed psu to an even better unit with full modularity and 80+ gold rating.
changed case to be a bit cheaper and provide good airflow but still be red and black as previous one as ive seen reviews that state intake air is poor with that front glass panel.
also changed to 2600 as the extra frequency isn't going to play much of a difference in 1440p gaming. the only real way to make a noticeable performance boost is switching a better card like the 2070 however thats a big price difference and doesnt fit very close within the budget and the 2060 still should do fine maxing games out in 1440p with little ease
id suggest researching into noctua they really dont get loud
Becuase you have the aourus master id imagine you would want to oc the 9900k so getting a 360mm aio is advised as it gets very hot and in combination with a 2080ti the extra fan mounts and cooling options will be nice
