Hey everyone, my old PC is getting a little rusty and I was looking into doing a massive overhaul, which would be replacing everything except the GPU.

So I asked a few friends for help and ended up going with that: https://fr.pcpartpicker.com/list/fv98jp

I was wondering if anything could cause and issue, since PCpartpicker is issuing a warning (which I think should be fine after checking some posts but I'm not sure),
PCPP is also mentioning that the cooler could cause an issue, so I don't really know if it's going to be an actual issue or not.


In short, things i'm sure about getting are the Ryzen 5 3600 and the G.Skill Aegis 8GBx2 DDR4-3000.

I want a motherboard that will allow future upgrades without too many issues,


I mostly want to see if there's any issue with the MOBO and CPU/Cooler, so if you think of anything that could improve the build I'll take it, a SSD recommendation would be welcome too.


I'd be willing to spend 650-700€ tops (with SSD), so if there's any recommendations, I'll gladly take them.


P.S.: I'm in France so prices might differ if you're not using the French location in PCPP.



Anyway, thanks in advance!

You will have to buy an adapter bracket to use that cooler. Noctua will send them out for free but it might take a while.



Otherwise, it looks good.

Why did you go with a cxm unit when formula gold is available at the same price?
