  1. I'm wondering what would be the best air cooler for minor to moderate overclocking? I have these three in mind so far: -Scythe Mungen 5 Re.B ($47) -Noctua U12S ($56) -Noctua D15S ($71) I'm not 100% sold on one yet and I'm open to anything. TIA
  2. Well the Samsungs were priced at $80 for the 970 and $90 for the 970+ I would probably say go with more performance/reliability in mind. Storage anywhere between 500GB-1TB, is plenty for me.
  3. Mostly 1440p 144hz gaming. May I ask what the extra performance would entail? That way I can have a better understanding if I would get use out of it.
  4. Between the 500GB Samsung 970 and 970 Plus, would it be worth the $20 difference in price for the latter?
  5. Does anyone know a website that provides cpu cooler temp/noise benchmarks? This way I can justify spending more or find a way to save a little. Thanks for all the help so far everyone!
  6. I'm going to buy a Ryzen 5 3600 and a MSI B450i Gaming Plus AC. What CPU cooler should I buy if I plan on doing little to moderate overclocking? A couple things to know, the cooler can't be taller than 6.3"/160mm. Also, considering the price of the 3600 ($200), I don't feel it's necessary to spend upwards of $100 on a cooler. My reasoning could be completely wrong but I'm open to any and all suggestions. Thanks in advance
  7. I'm having a hard time deciding between the 1070Ti and the 5700 XT. Would the 5700 XT be worth the extra money (a little over $100)? They would be paired with a 3600 and my goal is to average over 120fps on classic wow in 1440p.
  8. Is the MSI worth the extra $50 compared the Gigabyte?
  9. I'm wanting to stick to a mini ITX build.
  10. Thanks for the fast response guys. Next questions would be, which mobo would be a better fit and does the 3600 bottleneck any of the higher end GPU (2080Ti)? Gigabyte B450I Aorus Pro MSI B450I Gaming Plus AC (I've read is overall better) Both are $120 but I can get the Gigabyte for $50 less ($40-$35 if you factor in my cost to drive and pick it up lol) because of an in store deal.
  11. Hey everyone, I'm looking for a little advice on which combo to go with. My GPU will be a GTX 1070-Ti Asus ROG Strix. i7-9700k + Gigabyte Z390I Aorus Pro = $435 Ryzen 3600 + Gigabyte B450I Aorus Pro = $270 Any advice and information would be great =)
  12. New Build: CPU- R5 3600 ($160) Mobo- Gigabyte B450I Aorus Pro ($70, combo deal from local microcenter) RAM- G.Skill Ripjaws V 2x8 GB DDR4-3200 ($78) GPU- Asus ROG Strix GTX 1070Ti (got this for a really good price, just under $300) PSU- Seasonic FOCUS Plus Gold 550w ($60) SSD- Samsung 970 EVO 500GB ($80) Case- BitFenix Phenom ($90) (Monitor- Dell S2716DGR) My plan is to use the 1070Ti until the newer 5700 XTs come out. When I get the new GPU I plan to purchase an HSF, upgrade from the stock 3600 stealth, to help get more out of my XT. Does this make the most sense for 1440p and averaging greater than 120 fps in classic WoW? Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated. TIA!
  13. After looking into it I can get a 3600 for $160 and a Gigabyte B450I Aorus Pro for $70 (after local pickup combo deal). Would the $105 savings justify the change from Intel to AMD? Also, with that said, would I be ok with keeping my GTX 1070Ti and G-sync monitor? Or, would it be better to get an AMD card and a FreeSync monitor? The GPU I would lean toward is probably the 5700xt. Does the 5700xt only come in blower format?
  14. Since I'm paying $200 for the 9600k, it's the same price as the 3600. From what I've read, the 9600k is just a better CPU for gaming. Also, from what I've read, the stock coolers on the AMDs are no bueno. Side note, all of my information is from hours of internet research. Rather than hands on or from personal experience lol
