Is this an alright set?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi. I can for now only pick things up to a 1000 so this is what I've picked.
Is this alright?

Also, the note "Some physical dimension restrictions cannot (yet) be automatically checked, such as cpu cooler / RAM clearance with modules using tall heat spreaders." makes me think. What is it supposed to be about? Does this mean those things might not be compatible inside with each other?

Thanks in advance.

It's basically saying "I dunno if your cooler+RAM combo will work, check it before-hand".

It will work though. Info from Noctua's product page:

Thanks to its recessed lower fins, the NH-D15 provides 64mm clearance for tall memory heatsinks in single fan mode, making it compatible with most high end RAM modules on the market. In dual fan mode, the NH-D15 should be used with standard height RAM (up to 32mm).*

the Corsair LPX set is 31mm tall, so it will work with this cooler in both single and dual fan mode.

Your case supports up to 17cm coolers, the D15 is 16cm tall. So no issues there too.

 

As for the build:

- Do you have an SSD already? (You can add it to the PCPartPicker list and mark it is 'Purchased' to avoid confusion later)

- I don't have an opinion on that case, so not sure if it's good or bad.

 

Rest of the build looks solid.

Of course you can choose to spend less on the cooler, deal with more noise and upgrade certain parts of your PC; but there is not really performance benefits to be had with that IMO.. (like going to a 2060 is not gonna get more fps in games, upgrading the CPU isn't either..)

 

EDIT: Oh and consider if you really need 32GB. Not sure what your PC is for...But just think about that.

2 things.
a 1660 Super costs less and is identical.
and a NH D15 is ridiculous for a little 100w under prime95 Ryzen. ( i had one for a 5.2 Ghz 8086k and it was even enough with 1 fan)

Take a U12S instead (maybe you want to upgrade in the future to a ryzen 7 or 9) and skip the 1660 Ti and take the saved money for a RX 5700 which is over 50% faster than a 1660 Ti.

the X570-A Pro is garbage for the price. do you really need 32gb of ram? skip the aftermarket cooler and use the money for an SSD and better GPU instead.
