I would keep the Cryorig m9i. It is a very good cooler and it will be more than enough for you to OC your i7. You might not get all the "juice" out of your CPU but you can still achieve some decent clock speed. Also AIO have a tendency to leak and degrade with time, which will decrease its performance

This is V5 so its comparable with lga 1151. However, I don't see anybody using it with h, b, or z series chip sets

Comment reply on Forum Topic "i3 not for gaming???"

  • 41 months ago

I have a Pentium g4400 pared with GTX 950 and it is more than enough even for 2k resolution. However, I only play games like Dota 2 and CS:GO. My roommate has i3-6100 and he plays GTA V and Dying light maxed out at 1080p.

If you are on a budget, get i3 now and then upgrade later to i5. GTX 1060 should be good enough for a couple of years.

Hey there

I have a similar build for CS:GO and Dota 2 https://pcpartpicker.com/b/Tdpbt6 I would recommend you to change your GTX750Ti for GTX 950. You can find them cheap with the rebates. I got mine for $120 with $20 rebate. GTX 950 will outperform GTX750ti, so spend that extra $20 to get more fps Also I would stick with intel. g4400 is a pretty good CPU for entry level gaming Also PSU needs to be changed as it was mentioned by others

Comment reply on Forum Topic "How are the dual cores?"

I can confirm that. I amcurrently using the G4400 pared with GTX950 and its pretty good for DOTA 2 and CS;Go even at 1440p. I am not going to update since I only play these 2 games. If you are planing to game AAA titles you might want to get i5-6500.

If you are not overcloking at all than skip on 6600k and get 6500+ any cheap h110 mobo

in this case any 500-650 80+ PSU will do. Just make sure it has enought pci cables for your GPU

Keep the same brand and capacity, but make sure to use it as a dual channel 2X8Gb at first. After that you can add 2 more 8Gb sticks, which will total 32bg. I personally think its way too much ram for gaming, unless you are doing some rendering. Just for gaming, 8Gb is more than enough

Everything looks great. Just add a decent PSU and maybe get 2x8Gb RAM. You can always add 2 more sticks later on. 6600k is a great CPU, it will last you for 3-4 years for sure. There are people who still use 2nd generation i5 for gaming!

Get 6600K with EVO 212 and Z170 motherboard. You can do pretty much anything, except maybe rendering 4k videos

Well I dont know prices in Canada. Overall seems good for low end gmaes like CS:GO, Dota, Starcraft and LOL. However, if you plan on playing GTA V, B4 you might not get what you want (1080p, high-utra, 70-80fps)

For the AAA titles, you might want to get at least an i3-6100 and gtx 960. IMO I think thas a sweet spot for 1080p gaming

Also check out youtube videos. There are many people benchmarking games with different hardware. Your build might be good enough for you

it depends on games you want to play. Most of the modern games will not run well on gtx 950. Personally I would add an extra $20-30 and get gtx 960 ($170). Or the best waY IS TO FIND RX480 UNDER $200. I dont know what your budget is, and what set up are you trying to build. If its a brand new build, i can make a part list for you if you like

Well, its ok for my needs. If you are planning to game on hight-ultra settings, you might want to get gtx 960. They are pretty close in price. Sometimes you can find 960 under $150. Also you can wait, there might be gtx 1050, which should outperform 960
