Hey,

So i have decided to spoil myaelf with a system upgrade.

I am looking to upgrade my cpu, and wanted to hear your feedback / advice on how i ahould do it...

I currently have:

Cpu - i5 7600k oc to 4.9ghz

Motherboard - msi z270 krait gaming

Gpu - msi gtx 1080ti armor oc

Psu - corsair rx750i

Memory - kingston hyperx furry dual channel (total 16gb) 2400hz stock

Cpu cooling - corsair h110i (older model)

 

So, not to be a d**k about it but money is not really the problem..

I mostly game and do some programming, running vms and such.

 

I was thinking of the amd ryzen 9 3900x, but im warrid my cooling is not enough / my psu wont be compatible...

 

Also, i dont mind upgrading the ram as i herd it is recommended tocbe highest clock possible on amd

 

Thanks!

I know upgrading is fun but i would highly suggest waiting because there is new stuff right around the corner.

I would say up to 900 usd give or take, of course lower is better, and i am highly restricted by the local retailer here, so whatever price you see online, round it up and add about 50$ to it, thata my local price.

By the way mate,

I am just making sure that not only that the psu wattage rating is good for my desired setup, but that the cable is sufficiant, cause i saw that there is an additional 4(or 6 im not sure) pin connector on the mobo

You only need to connect the 8 pin 

The other one is if you are pushing your cpu to it's limit 

So you can get more consistent power
