  1. I did a little browsing and found a Corsair iCUE H100i PRO XT cooler (2 120MM fans) and Dark Rock Pro 4, for 20 euro cheaper than the Corsair water one. I'm a little bit nervous of water cooling leaks, even if the RBG looks sick:P. Do you know if that Dark Rock would do me fine, even when my GPU goes to 3070/3080 powerwise? You and Somerandomtechyboi have been a great help for narrowing down my last few items, I'm willing to go a little over budget for the final pre GPU piece if it'll save me down the line
  2. I changed case to 220T corsair, montech were out of stock for me. How much of a cost upgrade would I be looking at if I wanted a overclock ready cooler? Just curious if it would be worth it, probably won't be overclocking for ages if at all. 11700k is 60 euro more which is a bit much (the 10700k and 11700k are both cheaper than the no letter versions on amazon for some reason)
  3. Thanks for the info, I'll go for the MSI MPG Z490 Gaming Plus Mobo and 10700k combo. Do you think my CPU cooler will be good enough for that beefier CPU or will I need to replace it with something better?
  4. Thanks for replying with the info, just have some folIow up Qs:). I could upgrade to a Z490 (https://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-Motherboard-LGA1200-DisplayPort-Pre-installed/dp/B0886QSX7N/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=z490&qid=1628152697&s=electronics&sr=1-1&th=1) and an i7-10700k for just €30, do you think that's worth it for overclocking or is it not worth it? As I understand Z490 is the gen before B560 but Idk how much that matters. If I did do that upgrade, are there any specific coolers you would recommend in similar price range that would be able to handle overclocking?
  5. Budget (including currency): €900-1000 Country: Ireland, so expect everything to cost more as shipping to here Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: 90% gaming, in particular total war games and bannerlord Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): Peripherals I already have so no need to worry there. I'm upgrading form msi ge 62 apache pro (GTX 960M). I'm getting 1050 Ti for free basically compared to current pric
