Picked my parts, have some questions. 2nd build.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This is my second build, upgrading from a 2012 PC. 

Should I get thermal paste other than the one included in the cooler? If so recommendations?

Does it matter whether I get a 2 ram sticks or 4? I got 2 for now cause i will upgrade it to 32 GBs.

Thanks all!

240mm is a bit small for a 9900k... i still recommend both the nhd15 and the drp4 over it

 

opp and otp issues mainly, wouldn't be a big problem with like a 580 or 1660 ti, but not much higher

yeah, that's much better

 

750 watt might be a bit much, but not that overkill in this case

1. Always a good idea to use different thermal paste than the stock stuff. MX4 is the way to go.

2. As long as you use a even number of RAM sticks so you get dual channel you're good. Is you use 2 instead of 4 it leaves room for future upgrades.

 

As for the power supply, you can't go wrong with Corsair. 10 years warranty.
