    antisleep reacted to lee32uk in My very first build help   
    So why would you put a worse performing cooler in there that costs more money ? That makes zero sense. There is a time and a place for low profile coolers. This isn't one of them.
     
    Also stock and overclocked temps (Under load) are going to be a lot worse than a good tower cooler such as the Cryorig H7.

    antisleep reacted to dep3kuj in BF1 PC upgrade, need an advise   
    Yea, I've watched this video not so long ago and it seems that I should be just fine with standert i5 6500.

    So what do you think guys, if I get i5 6500 + microATX mobo with h110 chipset (cuz it's cheap and small) and 8 gb 2133 mhz stick of ddr4 ram, would it be fine paired with my R9 280x? Right now it seems to be pretty balanced setup for modern games and general use in 1080p.
    Or this mobo wont let me do gpu overclock (I mean standart overclock provided by msi software: Normal/Gaming/Overclock mode)? And is 2133 ddr4 ok, or I should consider 2400? I mean if 2400 it gives only 1-2 fps increase, then 2133 is the way to go.

    antisleep got a reaction from Hamaster in First time build plan   
    The reference designs with blower style shroud run hotter and noiser.
    The aftermarket variants have better cooling, are quieter and allows for more overclocking headroom.
     
     
    The 6400's lower clock speeds can affect the minimum fps of games like BF1 and in a few cases even cause minor stutters. It's not worth saving €20 at all.

    You don't need very much to cool a stock i7. If you seriously don't want to use the stock cooler (which is perfectly fine), I'd recommend a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO or a CRYORIG H7. If you need something that's good and low-profile, I'd also consider the Noctua L9i. All of these coolers are cheaper and very effective. If you save on cooling, you could use this money towards a bigger SSD.
     
    That's a pretty good deal for that PSU.
     
    The OP only stated that 1080p was good enough and needed 32 GB. Unless the OP is planning on doing 1080p at 100+ FPS, getting a GTX 1070 is a little overkill, where over $150 could be saved by going with a 1060. Also, it's a bit of a downgrade if you're removing the SSD.

    antisleep got a reaction from just tilt in Which of these two?   
    You can only store GTA V on a 120gb SSD and that's it, rest is for apps. And if you're heavily modding skyrim you definitely want to put it on the SSD.
     
    Either add to your budget to get a 250GB SSD or go with cheaper, non red components to afford one.
     
    Here's what I suggest - All black* build with with better GPU, PSU and larger SSD: http://de.pcpartpicker.com/list/CmZ3HN
