  1. Both Corsair and EKWB make full kits but be prepared to shell out some bucks for them.
  2. Well you might want to consider the B550 motherboard I linked as well as the PSU if you want to save some cash as now that the B550 boards are out you are not limited to the x570 boards.
  3. Well you can do some overclocking on air if you get a DH15 from Noctua and the performance is not that big of a difference. Now if you really want to try max overlocking water is a good choice but then you are usually talking a custom loop job and those are according to Linus both expensive and more maintenance intensive which is why I went with air cooling for my 3900x. On the other hand if you want to overclock and want the cleaner look an AIO can provide then by all means go for it.
  4. Are you overclocking that CPU? If not then I would consider getting a good air cooler from noctua instead as if the fan fails on that its easy to spot where as if your pump fails or if the cooler leaks your going to be potentially out alot of money.
  5. PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor CPU Cooler Noctua NH-U12DXi4 55 CFM CPU Cooler $64.95 @ Amazon Motherboard MSI B550M PRO-VDH WIFI Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $112.98 @ Newegg Memory G.Skill Trident Z Neo 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18 Memory $89.99 @ Newegg
  6. I would still give reinstalling the cooler a shot as unequal mounting pressure on CPUs can cause problems. Besides its something easy and quick to try and then to rule out.
  7. Perhaps a mounting pressure issue with the CPU? Have you tried reinstalling the cooler to see if that helps
  8. The works. Though I only need 3 network cards for now.
  9. So I am considering trying to wire my 4 bedroom home up including the living room and I am wondering if there is a solution that will not cost me an arm and a leg? I just need a rough ballpark amount that I am probably looking at is all assuming I decide to take the plunge.
  10. Seeing as the cheapest new one on pcpartpicker is listed as $698.40 I would say yes and I also checked ebay.au and they show used ones selling for around that price if not a tad higher.
  11. Main one is check for bundles and do not forget to check newegg for their daily deals as you might be able to save more money that way.
  12. In essence the xt cpus are tweaked versions of the older x.
  13. K but I would wait for a bit once the scalpers cool off on buying the new AMD chips and get one of those.
  14. Agreed. Probably the best solution for them would be a B550 board which is what I did for my brother as a budget build with a 3100 though of course I would not recommend the 3100 for the OP.
