    Rx 570 temp

    Okay but that variance could be cooling design, or hell even the difference between a really good and a really bad TIM application job at the factory.

    Until you hit around 85, don't worry about it.

    Is a GTX1060 6gb still a valid card??

    1060 6gb pricing is pretty shit rn. They cost like... $10 less than than the 15-20% faster 1660. That's like the cost of a pizza for a 20% faster card. You'd legitimately be insane to not go for that. RX 580 makes a bit more sense since 1660 is $30 more (15% more expensive), but RX 580 also comes with 2 free games which ups it's value if you care about the games. 1060 6gb however makes absolutely no sense. If you want to spend $210, skip lunch for a day and get 1660 for $220. If you want to spend less than that, go RX 580 for $190, get slightly better performance in newer games than 1060 6gb, and take the 2 free games whether you care about them or not.

    i7-4790k vs i7-7700

    I wouldn't bother going to the new i5's. It'll be an improvement to be sure, but assuming you're overclocked to about 4.5ghz, it just isn't going to be fast enough to justify the massive expense of new RAM, a new motherboard, and a new CPU. I wouldn't upgrade to anything less than an 8700k

    Intel i7 8700 Temperature Issues

    uhhh idk I run with BLCK OC to 4.4 and it's rock solid, but I'm running an Asus Prime Z370 A

    Why? He already has an H7 which is better than a 212.

    1.24 volts. Anything lower and I'm not 100% stable.

    I get the same results on my 8700. These chips run hot man.

    GTX 1680

    No because I keep seeing people recommend 2070 for some reason. I'll never understand why. People keep saying "but muh total system cost" completely ignoring the fact that Most people upgrade their graphics cards at least once in the PCs life Total system cost makes no sense because it doesn't increase the performance of the whole system, only the GPU Even with total system cost rather than , in a system that's suitable to a 2060/2070, the 2070 is STILL a worse value than 2060.

    AMD HD 7970 or GTX 1050 ti?

    I'd run the 7970 because it's a touch faster, and the 6gb of VRAM is cool on a 7970... didn't even know that existed until right just now.

    Best GPU's for ~400$

    I mean those A320 boards can struggle to even maintain boost clocks. No I am not kidding, it's entirely possible you'll see worse performance, even at stock, with that A320 board compared to even a basic B450 board.

    Good GPU for i5 2400

    I never said 1050ti, I said RX 570 which has roughly equal price:performance to the RX 580, just a bit slower to be more in line with the 2400.

    No that's an A320 board. It's kind of a piece of garbage. It won't OC your CPU and I doubt it'll have the VRMs to support an upgrade to 12 core Zen 2 CPUs in a few years if you find yourself wanting the extra clockspeed and cores. Seriously. Spend the extra $50 now so you can upgrade your CPU for cheap later instead of buying a whole new PC.
  14. Ryzen 5 1600's are selling for under $100 USD brand spankin' new. I've seen motherboard/CPU combos with a Ryzen 5 1600 go for under $200 USD at places like Microcenter. That's INSANE value. Looking at Microcenter, you can get a Ryzen 5 1600 and an Asus Prime B350 (it'll work just fine with that CPU) for $160. Most of them clock to ~3.8ghz even on the stock cooler. That's within 10% of the 4.1ghz the 2600(x)'s are usually hitting. The most expensive part of the build will be the RAM, but even then you can get decent 3000mhz DDR4 for around $100. Throw in a cheap case, solid 500W PSU and an SSD and you're cooking with gas.

    IDK, that still might bottleneck pretty hard in modern games. I'd be more inclined to go RX 570. Remember i5 2400 is a sandy bridge quad core that sits around 3.1ghz. It is probably around 25% slower than 2200g at stock, and when you OC the 2200g you're probably getting to over 30% slower.
