Any suggestions for my first build

 Share

This is going to be my first build for gaming I would like to keep the budget close to what it is now I went a little overkill on some parts with the intent of easy future upgrading but I was wondering if the were any parts I could swap to get better preformace with the same upgrade ablity any suggestions would help.

Do you prefer 8086k's gimmick over 8700k's cheaper price?

What's your monitor resolution/refresh rate?


You can get a perfectly fine PC for under $1000 just an FYI

Just add hard drive

Vega 56 for free-sync savings

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

Spoiler

 

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

What games or other software do you need to run?

Your right I definitely need a SSD. But why don't I need thermal paste?

So then a 8700k can be overclocked as far as I could the 8086k without extra wear that's the only reason I picked it

You'd want to have either of them delidded for 15-20C better temps out of the box, you can pay silicon lottery about $50 to do it.

The problem is that you've cut too many corners elsewhere just to get the 8086k, especially the cooler since temperature affects lifespan of electronics most. A LOT more than silicon lottery.

 

The CM ML series AIO are rubbish. They are far from well-built, and performance is wayyyyy behind other 240mm rad AIOs.

 

Coolers come with their own paste, you need not buy your own.

 

Masterbox series has bad airflow, so cooling will be a big problem with high end components.

 

If it's not for your username I would ding the Z370-E for its high price. It's hardware is just so-so among mid range products, but that price is eye-watering.

Use the i7-8700K instead. Identical stock performance and near identical oc potential. The current rumours are that Coffee Lake Refresh cpu will be announced on Tuesday. It is probably worth waiting for the reviews.

 

Get a decent sized ssd.

 

A 650W psu would be fine. Consider a Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 650W or 750W psu. Either is a bit less expensive than the G3.

 

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

Are there any RGB AIO's that are good or should I just let go of having RGB.

 

I'm going with a theme that looks like the engine of the Normandy from ME the kinda blueish color with splases of red not for any particular reason just thought it would look cool.

The Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240R RGB is not bad and the RGB is compatible with the motherboard.
