Go to solution Solved by SeeFights,

Because he isnt building till after christmas, he doesnt mind saving up more money to buy the 8600K which is the next one up from the 8400 becasue he wants a water cooler 

The build he made: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/mnnQpb

 

The build i made: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/gVnQpb

 

He wanted a new PC and we sore the new intel CPU's, he wanted them becasue over all the computer would last longer but my suggestion is that the 6600 and 7700 series is still relevant and he could save some money.

How about he gets the one he wants without a super expensive cooler for a locked chip? And also without a 750W PSU for only 315W TDP?

Q: Do I have a virus?!
A: If you didn't click a sketchy email, haven't left your computer physically open to attack, haven't downloaded anything sketchy/free, know that your software hasn't been exploited in a new hack, then the answer is: probably not.

 

Q: What email/VPN should I use?
A: Proton mail and VPN are the best for email and VPNs respectively. (They're free in a good way)

 

Q: How can I stay anonymous on the (deep/dark) webzz???....

A: By learning how to de-anonymize everyone else; if you can do that, then you know what to do for yourself.

 

Q: What Linux distro is best for x y z?

A: Lubuntu for things with little processing power, Ubuntu for normal PCs, and if you need to do anything else then it's best if you do the research yourself.

 

Q: Why is my Linux giving me x y z error?

A: Have you not googled it? Are you sure StackOverflow doesn't have an answer? Does the error tell you what's wrong? If the answer is no to all of those, message me.

This build is MUCH better. One suggestion: Instead of getting an AiO, he should use that money to get a 1080 instead of a 1070. The 8400 comes with a stock cooler ;)

 

The 6600K is a bad option

Hyper 212 Evo? or Stock?

This. Almost anything will work. Just don't spend lots of money on it (< $20 at max)

NOTE:

 

If you are going with Hyper 212 Evo, make sure the PC case is wide enough to fit one.

Where does he hear this?!?

Make sure to quote me or tag me when responding to me, or I might not know you replied! Examples:

Both are similar from one another, but your friend's build is more up to date. So your friend's build is better. The Master Box LIte 5, at that price it's not tempered glass, but acrylic. Did a build with that case, not too bad, tons of anchor points for cable management, the slide open HDD bracket is a nice design, have a huge basement opening in front store your unused psu cables, if you're not using a triple rad. Acrylic side panel is tinted, so without lights, you're barely be able to see anything.

yours is probably better tbh, here's the thing, first up you have a 3.5 FRI KIN Ghz unlocked CPU how about that? all 6 cores of his are nothing when a unlocked beast comes in, 2nd thing is that you have chosen to kingston ram, which i prefer more than the pny one, then you have also got a 80+ GOLD Cpu Great! also the only thing he has compromised is on the mobo... he should have gone with a z270 instead...

Whenever the new system is bought, get a much better psu: EVGA 550W G3 (or G2), Corsair RMX-550 or, (my preference), Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 550W.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.
