Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys,

The CPU cooler might not be adequate for long loads and I would recommend 3600 ram instead of 3200, dam it's a dry spot today for help.

I went with a different psu that is at the best teir on the ltt psu teir list instead of burning money, cheapest 3600 memory, a decent CPU cooler (you can change this one around a bit, I'm just not a fan of the stock coolers performance) and I would recommend seeing what other people say.

Just use ram calculator for ryzen and oc those sticks you have. Most likely will hit that same 3600 cl18 without trouble and wont cost anything.

 

And upgrading that for hobby level stuff could be pointless.

Cpu side makes little difference unless youll oc 3900X or 3950X. 3900X stock is about the same wattage as 2700X stock.

he has already built the pc. and his psu is still decent and not something to worry about.

Maybe a better cooler like the dark rock 4 or shadow rock would be beneficial. Other than that everything should be fine for now.You may need more ram in the future but probably not at the moment
