Sure, it's not as flashy, but it'll perform WAY better in gaming. You'll probably be able to play at High-Ultra with this build.

Hiyah, This is one of the first builds I am doing for my self, I have a bit or some experience ( mostly from LTT videos !!! ). The goal of the build is dope frame speeds at low- mid settings with the ability to dabble in over clocking. Currently playing games like,

 " LoL ", " Let it die ", and doing some solid multi tasking. I have most of the parts so far. :D

 

All parts are from amazon.ca and newegg.ca.

 

CPU: Unlocked i3-8350k

MOBO: Rog Strix H370-I
RAM: G.SKILL TRIDENT RGB 16g kit @ 3kmhz but I think id like to go with something with less flair at the same speeds or 2600mhz 

COOler: Noctua NH-DL9

GPU: Evga SC 4Gb GTX 1050 ti

SSD: Crucial 2.5 1tb Nand

PSU: Corsair tx 550w 80 Plus Gold Semi Modular

CASE: Phanteks Evolv Shift x

 

I believe I would need a water cooling loop when it comes time for over clocking but to run stock I think the Noctua will be fine. I am concerned if this mobo is okay for Over Clocking ? or if there would be a better mobo to switch too for this. Any help would be greatly appreciated ! 
I hope everyone is having the best December.

H370 doesn't support overclocking and the 8350K is way too overpriced for what it is, but all in all it's a pretty balanced system even without overclocking.

YOu can't overclock on a h series board.

 

What parts do you already have?

 

If your goal is mainly, get get a faster gpu like a 1060, 580 or 1070 and focus on the cpu and cooler less, the 1050ti will limit gaming performance for almost all games with this build

 

Id also look at the rzyen 5 2600, cheaper, overclockable.

Currently I have MOBO,  GPU, CPU. Noctua Cooler, PSU en route along with the case. The evolv Shift x Was only 120 cad. Im not too bugged about the Mobo but OOF. The 8350k was 200. So in all, Swap the mobo to over clock the i3 since i already have it & upgrade the GPU first. I dont think the 1050ti will hold me back at the moment as I am going from on board. I am looking to play CP77 when it comes out so Ill be looking to upgrade gpu for that.

also daaamn, did you pay 160$ for a case? that is so unnecessary for a system like that, you could've spent your money on a better CPU and GPU

The idea around the shift x was some slight mods and the option to upgrade to some beefier gear with out lacking space to cool it. Besides its a skyscraper for the mini board XD

PS. Thank you for your advice !! MUCH APPRECIATION. < 3 ❤️

can you return anything? You can get a much better value than these parts for about the same price, and get a better gpu for a overall better experience.

You could probably get that for your budget, so probably correct.

If you want a ATX board, go for the B450-A PRO from MSI.
