NEED HELP WITH CPU, CPU COOLER and gaming

Plushellii
 Share

Go to solution Solved by Jurrunio,

Beefed up the motherboard because the K4 is really mediocre atm, who knows if it will end up being too weak in the future. I wanted to use the $160 Asrock X470 Taichi at first, but then $13 extra for Crosshair 6 is too attractive.

 

Changed case, because you will need airflow.

 

Changed memory and CPU to reduce the cost without cutting performance in any noticeable way

 

Btw the Freezer 33 TR cooler sells for $1 less and performs better, but the fan is black and red so it might limit colour scheme choices.

This is my first pc build and I am trying to switch to the master race so I have been looking at cpu’s and I found one on pcpartpicker.com and then I chose all my other components on the website and now have pretty good build in my opinion but, since this is a gaming rig I was curious if I could run 2018 games at 100FPS or more on 1440p on my build. Also do you guys think I need to upgrade my cpu cooler or case? Here’s my build link and please, feel free to edit or change it (as long as it remains resonably close to 1000$)

It depends on the game but i don't know about at 1440p, but at 1080 you should be able to. Good build but maybe find a different case as DIYPC often are bad for cable management and maybe a better cooler. The arctic freezer esports edition is a good one

I think I found the cpu cooler you were talking about because it is black/red but I’m not sure if it’s the right one. Can you please take a look at it on pcpartpicker.com and tell me if it’s the one you were taking about. Here’s the link to pcpartpicker.com with the cpu cooler I think you’re talking about.

No, I'm talking about the TR, the one for Ryzen and Skylake-X only. The bigger baseplate increases rate of heat transfer, but removes compatibility with LGA 115X.

I’m new to pc building so I’m confused what you mean by TR and skylake-x. Also what is LGA 115X.

 

I probably sound really dumb right now but I have no idea what you mean, could you please elaborate on what TR, Skylake-x and LGA 115X are. Thank you.
