    You will have to make sure that B450 mobo comes with updated Bios to support Zen 2 CPU.
     
    You would also have to check your RAM. If you only have a single 8GB stick, you will need to buy another one because Ryzen CPUs don't work well with a single channel RAM.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from tp95112 in Which 280mm would you pick for Ryzen?   
    Lol none of them. 280mm AIO is simple overkill for 3600, and it costs 2/3 of the CPU. Just get some decent air cooler and save yourself a ton of money. You can even get a better CPU instead.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from 191x7 in Whats my bottleneck?   
    Pretty much your entire system is a bottleneck. 
     
    6600k is very dated 4c/4t CPU that gets destroyed in most modern AAA games.
     
    GPU - 1070 is not powerful enough for 1440p 144Hz.
     
    Z170 platform doesn't allow for any meaningful upgrade path.

    PopsicleHustler reacted to 191x7 in Whats my bottleneck?   
    1st - the CPU. That's the most limiting factor in your PC. Only 4 cores, no HyperThreading, it's quite a bottleneck in modern titles.
    2nd - the GPU, a 1070 isn't a great option for 1440p gaming, especially 144Hz.

    What CPU do you have? LGA1151 doesn't mean anything. Many different chipsets utilize LGA 1151 socket.

    You will probably cook the control chip responsible for that fan header.

    PopsicleHustler reacted to Fasauceome in CPU Bottleneck Xeon E5-1620 3.60GHz ? (update: now E5-2690)   
    A Sandy bridge 4c/8t with no OC is not gonna carry a 2080 too well in modern AAA titles. What is your performance target, and with what games?
     
    Then again, if you just go all out on the GPU and then later just upgrade the rest of your rig later, it hardly matters.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from fuzz0r in Should I use 922 HAF for new build or buy new case?   
    That question is totally on you. 
     
    Personally if I were doing a new build and I had this case, I  would do some painting and modding to make it look cool and build a modern system in it.

    PopsicleHustler reacted to kirashi in All of my games keep crashing, I need help.   
    You'll probably want to start with "bothering to look" so that you've got some idea as to why the games are crashing.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Ethnod in Looking into CPU upgrade path for my system, advice?   
    You're at a dead end with that platform. The only way forward from here is to get a modern platform. 
     
    Getting Xeon won't do anything in terms of performance.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from StarsMars in GPU and cpu overheating, fans somewhat loud on rampup.   
    Your air circulation is extremely disbalanced. With dual GPUs and an overvlocked CPU, you need very good airflow. What you have now is not good. Air gets into the case but there is no way for it to get it. A single 120mm at the rear simply cannot keep up with all the heat that is being produced by the system.

    Since you have to go Intel or AMD for your CPU, you can't really go 100% one company.
    But you can get close to it though
    ASUS doesn't make RAM and storage devices though, so you could do better!
    This is a great suggestion/answer, as Gigabyte/Aorus basically makes everything.
    You could even say, Gigabyte has a Z390 with an i9 included, meaning you can get a full PC, including peripherals (including monitor) from Gigabyte/Aorus.
     
    If you use this for motherboard and CPU:
    https://www.newegg.com/gigabyte-z390-aorus-xtreme-waterforce-5g-extended-atx/p/N82E16813145150
    You can get memory, case, PSU, Videocard (since you buy an AIB, not necessarily Nvidia/AMD), cooler, SSD, mouse, keyboard, headset and monitor from 1 singular brand.
     
    So basically if this was a challenge to make a PC (including peripherals) where if you had any issues you only wanted to contact 1 company, that would be the best way.
     
    (This is assuming a conventional desktop PC, so something like just saying Apple or a phone/laptop manufacturer does not count)
