I would go with a Gigabyte board for Z390 or something not Asus. That board is weak for £290. 

 

Also why do you need 4400MHz ram ? Makes no sense for gaming if that is your goal.

 

Maybe swap out the psu as the G3 has some issues. I would look at something like a Seasonic Focus Gold.

Winter is Coming.

along without ^, the cooler is fine, but i've never really heard anything about that one, the corsair h100i v2 is much better imo https://www.amazon.com/CORSAIR-Radiator-Advanced-Lighting-Software/dp/B019EXSSBG

Is there any reason for that ram?

You are paying as much for 16gb 4400mhz as basically 3200mhz 32gb.

It wont give you any more fps or performance, so i see no point for that ram.

I only see your reply if you @ me.

Intel i7-8700K Coffee Lake Memory Benchmark Analysis | TechPowerUp

Unless the use case is particularly memory intensive with a small memory footprint, you will see better system performance with 32GB of Corsair - Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3000 . But you might consider getting 2x8GB of DDR4-3000 and putting the savings into a more powerful cpu.

 

You may be able to get a better psu for a similar price to the G3, SeaSonic - FOCUS Plus Platinum 750 W. Or something quieter for a little less, SeaSonic FOCUS Plus 750 Gold or Corsair RM750x White.

Hi guys,

 

Thanks for the replies. Will swap out the PSU.

 

on the RAM speed....I play a lot of Overwatch which seems to be very ram speed dependent.

Any data on 8-core cpu? Certainly the improvement from 4 to 6 cores suggests that it might be worth investigating.

yeah interesting thought worth investigating!

Found the following:

From Blizzard: "Overwatch will utilize up to 6 CPU cores. If your CPU has less than 6 cores available, multitasking (such as broadcasting, streaming web content, or running messaging applications) may cause additional performance degradation. Closing other processes will improve game performance."

These numbers seem to confirm:
