Is the 10600K too overkill for a 1080 Ti

Hey everyone, We are building a PC using a 1080 Ti. But the motherboard and CPU choice is really difficult. What I was thinking is to go with a 10600k + Z490-A Pro. But a B450 Tomahawk Max and Ryzen 5 3600 seems like it will do fine. What would you guys suggest for 1080P?


There is a 130$ difference between the Z490 and 10600K vs the B450 and 3600

 

Also the GPU may be upgraded after 3 years or so.


Thanks

I'd go for the 10600K, at 1080p the CPU is a bit more important

3600 would be a considerable bottleneck vs a 10600k for a 1080ti, even more so if you plan to upgrade your gpu in the future, the 3600 isn't really an option.

Ill consider the 10600K for now then thanks.

 

Also 5600x + B450 Tomahawk Max and Z490-A Pro + 10600K are the same price which combo should I pick? Both will run on a 240mm AIO as cooling. I felt like the 10600K would be better with the overclock and aio and a z490 motherboard.

5600x + B450 Tomahawk Max

That's kind of a strange combo, b550 or x570 would be better imo but it's probably a way to get rid of those b450 leftover or something like that ... also I don't know if it's the case where you are but here the 5600x is close to impossible to find so I would tend to go for that combo just cause it's good and really rare ...  it's quite good for gaming, way better than the 3600 in the previous post, comparable to or better than the 10600k I think if I remember correctly.  I would go for that one paired with some 3600 cl16 memory ... if (and only if) you care about pcie gen 4 you should buy an x570 motherboard and sell the b450.  When I was looking for one my favorite were the x570 msi tomahawk and the x570 asus tuf

In Turkey there is a ton of stock for the 5600X so its not rare at all. The memory will be 3600 MHz CL14. The reason I am not sure about the Tomahawk is it doesn't have any 5V ARGB headers. The Z490 have those. I am not really sure is the 10600K that better than the 5600x?

..... well 3600 is near 10600k's performance. alse it has been tested that it odes not bottleneck even 2080 ti at 1080p on most titles.

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

Ask me anything :)

if 15-20% is near then sure, it could be 120fps average vs 144,  The 5600x has a 5% advantage when tuned over the 10600k, and i wouldn't ignore that either, let alone the huge gap between the 3600 and 10600k. i don't wanna argue over last gen stuff but the raw numbers are over there. The 1080p benchmarks where a 3600+2080 ti equaled a 10600k+2080S wasn't just a meme.

Lucky you there's stock ... if I was able to find it I would have already gotten one. 

That's some bad ass memory

 

Lucky me I don't have to care about rgb headers, the most deciding factor when I check out motherboard are the vrm temps and the number of usb ports.

 

That's the other way around ... from what I remember from the reviews it's the 5600x that is usually better than the 10600k, but I would have to double check to confirm that.

I ran a GTX 980 with a 3900X. At 1080p, it was absolutely fine. At 1440p, it just didn't work, the GPU was too slow.

 

For 1440p, a 5600X or a 3600 would be fine combined with a 1080 TI. Your GPU is going to be the slower component, and it will hold you back, but if you are planning on going with a 3060, 6800, or similar, then quite honestly, get the best CPU you can.

 

That said, I don't know much about the Intel 10th gen stuff. I had considered a 9th gen, but... Going AMD was too tempting.

 

Also, the Intel CPU probably won't really take much advantage of that Memory, but an AMD based system probably would be able to get a considerable performance boost from it.

Have you tried unplugging it and plugging it back in? Yes? Then have you tried downloading more RAM?
