Build Plan (Is everything good enough?)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm making my first ever build, and kind of lost on what to pick.

I read threads, watched a ton of vids and concluded on these parts.

Are they good? Anything to swap? 

 

Also i'm a bit interested on doing a mild OC on this.

Any advice is appreciated :))

Here is the link of my build :

CPU Cooler no need. Ryzen already have one.

Get a windows OEM key for $15

I am going to OC up to 4.1ghz if possible, thats why I picked the H5 Universal.

it's enough, though you will need to update the bios before using it.

get this monitor instead:

How will i update the bios tho? I read that i will need some 1st Gen or 2nd Gen?

Also is that monitor better than the Viewsonic one?

Nvm that monitor is nowhere to be bought around here. Xad

its better if you get the new mobo when it comes out x570/b550 

I heard that you may not need cpu to update bios on new mobo

i.e b450 still need a zen / zen+ chip to update bios

 

ps I personally think msi build quality is bad and its utilities sucks..

the b550 motherboards will arrive in 2020, thats a pretty long time.

also why do you think the msi quality is bad? is asus really the better option?

MSI has one of the better boards on the 400-series, asus is the one cheaping out on components nowadays.

Now i'm confused. Hmm maybe its his personal opinion? I read some threads and MSI is somewhat better in OCing? (I may be wrong)

I don't think AMD will need a B550, the 400 is their B lineup.

there will be soon, soon i mean like next year.

The prices of x570 is way ahead of me so i consider b550.

 

So should i hold off and wait for the 3000 series or go along with this?

The MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon has a bios flashback button, so you can update the bios without a cpu. If you don't need pcie 4.0 etc then it is one of the best B450 boards along with the Asus Strix B450-E in the VRM department.


Winter is Coming.
