Hi! I recently started building my new pc.

 

What i got atm (the other parts are irrelevant since they're old and should be replaced anyway, but if you are interested - i5 4460k, cheap cpu cooler, cheap asus mobo, ddr3 hyperx fury 8gb x2, few stock case fans):
gpu: asus strix 1660 ti
psu: corsair tx550m

 

I decided to go for gpu + psu first since that's the only parts i can upgrade by pieces and now it's time to buy the other parts at once...

 

Wanted parts:
cpu: r5 3600
cpu cooler: ID-Cooling SE-207 / be quiet! Dark Rock Slim
mobo: gigabyte x570 aorus elite / asrock x570 steel legend / asus x570-p
ram: 2x G.Skill Trident Z Royal (24000 - 16-18-18-38) 8gb  / 2x CORSAIR Vengeance RGB PRO (25600 - 15-15-15-36) 8gb
case: aerocool quartz rgb with stock fans

 

My budget is 800$ max, but i'd really like to go way lower than that.. (i'll use ssd and hdd from my current pc and upgrade them later)

 

Im kinda new to pc stuff and I know how to build it, but i dont have enough knowledge to decide which parts would work better in complete build. With that being said.. which mobo / ram / cpu cooler should i buy (feel free to suggest things that's not in the list, i'll check and reply if i can get it)?

 

I really want a room for some upgrades in the future (like in 2yrs probably), that's why im looking at x570 and not b450. The other reason is that i heard that with b450 mobos msi is a way to go, but unfortunately in my country it's hard to get a good one.. Or is there a good non-msi ATX b450 board that i can get and it'll be able to handle 3900x or at least 3800x in the future? Also i'd like to mention since i dont have a discrete sound card im looking for a good one on mobo (i heard that realtek s1220 is good and if im not mistaken it's on mobos that i listed), not sure if intel/realtek lan is any different, but i know that realtek lan had some problems before..

 

I've noticed that some x570 boards require 24+8+4 pin (which is more than tx550m has), does it mean that my psu is not compatible with these mobos or it will run just fine until i replace my r5 3600 with some high-end cpu which will require more power?

 

I feel like i can save some money on RAM, but not sure how.. Im not familiar with overclocking so i dont know if i should get a 3200mhz ram kit or the one with lower clocks (not sure how it works) and then set it up so it would run at 3200 (afaik that's what i need for r5 3600, right?). Or am im wrong in general? :)

 

Thank you in advance for your help and your time!!!

be quiet! Dark Rock Slim - any other options here in your budget?

asus x570-p - best of the three, will happily run a 3900x.

2x CORSAIR Vengeance RGB PRO (25600 - 15-15-15-36) 8gb - faster and with lower timings - win-win

the standard 8 pin can push 350W, which is for cpu only. only a heavily overclocked 3950x can pull more than that, so you should be fine. if you ever want to get a 3950x, you can upgrade your psu then as well.

Yeah, dark rock 4 / dark rock pro 4 (but this one is a bit too much) if we are talking about be quiet. But im not sure if there will be some space left for ram, because as i remember one of these has some problems with blocking ram slots..

The dark rock pro 4 has space for ram that is 40mm heigh. However the corsair vengeance rgp pro is 50mm so you woulnd't be able to use all 4 slots.

Can you get any noctua fans? The u12s or nhd15s should fit nicely.

Yeah, there's only one noctua cooler and it's u12s, then i'll buy this one)

 

Do you know how to run this corsair vengeance rgb pro (or basically any other) kit at 3200mhz? I know that there's such thing as XMP. All i need to do is enable it and select a profile that i need? Also if my kit is 3200, can i get it to 3400 or 3600 via xmp profiles or for this i'll need to manually oc it? I never used it before so sorry if that's a stupid question 🙄

for it's rated speeds, you just enable xmp and it should work.

if you want to overclock it, you start from the xmp profile and then manually change frequency, voltage and timings.

i recommend method 1 from this guide:
