I don't necessarily want the maximum performance possible for my budget. For this build, I want to focus on stability and quality components. I went Ryzen because the LGA1700 socket has contact pressure issues, and AM5 will be getting new CPUs for a while. I went Nvidia over AMD for GSYNC and better driver stability. I want absolutely zero screen tearing and I'll eventually pick up a GSYNC monitor down the line. 

 

I have a couple specific concerns with the parts I've chosen.

-Will the Deepcool AK400 be adequate for cooling? I hear Ryzen runs hot and I want plenty of headroom on the cooling side.

-Is the RAM I've selected adequate to hit the "sweet spot" for Ryzen?

- I'm not entirely set on my motherboard choice. Mainly I'm looking for a built in I-O shield, enough USB ports for the front IO of the case, and overall stability. WiFi 6 or newer would be nice so I don't have to buy a card.

 

Don't need any peripherals as of now. I plan to slowly upgrade those later. I'm upgrading from a Dell prebuilt with a Core i7 2600 and a GTX 1050. I plan on buying in the next few months to wait out potential deals (especially for motherboards, I'm not set on any specific brand). Any help or advice is appreciated!

Games take advantage of low latency RAM.

  • Which one's run hot? I'd say the last few generations Ryzen has had a reputation for running cooler that the competition.
  • No slow. Yes speed it sweetspot but latency is on the slower side.
  • That board has an average and OK amount of IO. If you really need more post an extra dock is far most cost effective at this price point that upgrading to something like an EATX 670E motherboard for a few more ports.
