true, but air coolers dont look as good, and its good to have for a cpu upgrade. but do you reccomend any good air coolers?

Ryzen all day. Can go into more detail about the memory choice

 

that case has no airflow and will choke an AIO


Also might as well grab a 240hz monitor.

 

Just upgrade to a 3070 maybe, or grab a used RX 470-580 for under $100 in the meantime if you can find one.

 

and the $50 6 heat pipe cooler will be around the same level as that 240mm AIO. AIOs are mostly useful in smaller form factor cases where a taller air cooler won't fit.

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

NH-D15 chromax or Dark Rock Pro 4?

 

and the board does not support overclocking, meaning the memory kit can run at 2933 at most and K sku CPUs still cannot be overclocked.

Also, 30 series has higher PSU recomendations than 20 series, you might want to check that.

hes not going to overclock

Why not overclock the PC for him? It will give him a pretty big performance bump at 1080p and 1440p, not to mention being able to stream more easily.

 

In any case, there's changes to be made to that build. You're paying too much for multiple things and as a result you get a pretty underpowered GPU for high-end standards (2070 Super is equivalent to an old 1080 Ti).

 

This is what you can get with some tweaks:

 

 

The 3080 there is a placeholder for some kind of similar upcoming card (or a 3080 if availability becomes better).

 

Unfortunately because of the availability issues, and Big Navi coming soon (tm), right now is not the best time to build a computer. Not just that, there's a new generation of AMD CPUs coming on Nov 5 that might take the high end gaming crown from Intel, leaving the blue team biting the dust

We have a NEW and GLORIOUSER-ER-ER PSU Tier List Now. (dammit @LukeSavenije stop coming up with new ones)

You can check out the old one that gave joy to so many across the land here

Yes, Big Navi and Zen 3 are just around the corner. 5600x looks to be in the same range as the 10600K, maybe consider both.

I wouldn't recommend a D15 to most people because it's really massive. Same for the DR Pro 4I'd recommend the U12s because it's still a good cooler that looks sick, but still performs very well.

To an ATX box it isn't that heavy nor big, there's still room for routing cables and wires.

Expected you to say the U12A if size is that big of a deal, even though I disagree

RAM compatibility for the D15 is an issue for people with tall modules. But then again, there are ITX builds that use the D15. 

U12A is a top-notch cooler. I think the signature color of Noctua might be a dealbreaker for some, which is why I also mentioned the U12s.
