It all started when I was 13, I wanted to get into PC building and I was working on a budget at the time, so I naturally got the Pentium G3220 GTX 750 ti Crucial 8 gb DDR3, etc. Now fast tracking to today, where as I was at Micro Center (not promoted) They had very cheap Ryzen 7’s like about 60 dollars off and ontop of the 30 that you get when bundleing and the RAM was on sale too! It was like a dream come true! So I took my christmas money, ~350 dollars and I bought the ASRock AM350 PRO4 ATX size for 30 USD, Ryzen 7 for 140 USD, Hyper 212 EVO for $33 USD and Ripjaws Ram for like $63.00 USD It was a pure gold mine and my friend’s Uncle had a spare MSI Geforce 1050 Ti and he sold it to me for 100 USD. So this Major haul of upgrades for my old Toaster which could barely run even Minecraft got Super charged, Reply with your guys’ experiences with upgrading.

Well, the 1700X doesn't come with a stock cooler, unless you bought the Wraith package of this chip that does.

I'm just curious as to why OP chose the Hyper 212 though. It wasn't a bad cooler for its time but there's newer and better.

Dual core no HT? looked more like this:

Image result for old toaster

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

It's possible but it depends on the RAM itself (Maybe Mobo/CPU)
