Rate my build (tell me if it will work, lol)

Everything should be compatible, just wondering what others think, my first ever build. Would love your opinions since ukno, never built anything before.

 

I5 8600K ( https://ark.intel.com/products/126685/Intel-Core-i5-8600K-Processor-9M-Cache-up-to-4-30-GHz- )

ASRock - Z370 Extreme4 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ( https://www.asrock.com/MB/Intel/Z370 Extreme4/index.asp )

ARCTIC - Freezer 33 eSports Edition (Black/White) CPU Cooler ( https://www.arctic.ac/uk_en/freezer-33-esports-edition.html )

Corsair LPX DDR4 2x8GB 3200mhz

Aerocool - Cylon ATX Mid Tower Case

Corsair - TXM Gold 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply

RX 580 8GB or gtx 1060 6GB

 

Sidenotes: Already have HDD, will buy m.2 ssd at later point, will overclock cpu to 4.2GHZ (4.3 is max turbo) Not really bothered about extreme overclock because i don't really need an extra 5fps for increase in temps.

Unsure which GPU most likely RX 580 due to current price and "supposed" future proofing but i don't really know about that.

it is a solid build; however, increasing from 4.2 ghz to 5 ghz will give you more than an extra 5 fps lol.

Also, why not a Ryzen system?

Does overclocking actually reduce lifespan by a large amount or is this just a myth?

it is a myth, unless you do insane ocing with high voltages for long periods of time. To me, doing a 5 ghz oc is pretty pointless for the extra 10-15 frames, even though I will do it lol. It also depends on the cooler you use, and  if you dont like ocing, a nice 4.5 or 4.8 wouldn't hurt.

Definatly get a Ryzen 2600 and a RX 580 as they are much better values. Maybe a better cpu cooler to overclock it. Motherboard I would stick to B450 since it has most of the features as X470 but cheaper. RAM, Case, and power supply are up to you but you could get by with a 550 watt. Definiatly get an ssd soon. What are you running now?

IK it's way more than your budget but getting a decent Intel based system on a budget is hard: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/ZK4sxG

 

Going with a Ryzen system is still better IMO.

Myth.

 

I've been running my 3930k at 4.6ghz since i bought it . At stock its meant to run 3.8 on 2 cores and lower on all cores. I have no worries about it failing anytime in the next decade. Not that i expect to keep usng it for that long but still :P

Just saw CS:GO, and frankly, I agree that intel is a good plan for single core performance.

 

Also, a $250 six core is quite overkill comparative to a 580 8GB. Especially if you're not going to overclock. An i5-8400 or wait for the i5-9400.

1080p, not gonna play 1440 anytime soon. (I want highest frames not highest graphical settings)

I wouldn't dis ryzen so much because with the money saved from about $100 cheaper you could get a RX 590. You really dont need a cpu of that caliber for that GPU. If you are doing CPU intensive tasks you might as well go with a 2700. You could run that GPU with a core i3 and have similer fps because you are not going any higher than 60 fps.

I don't have anything against ryzen cpu's, i mean this is my first build, currently i have a fx-8350 but i want more single core performance for csgo specifically.

Trust me - there is a lot more single thread on Ryzen than that and I went from a FX - 8350 to a Ryzen 2200G (For an upgrade path to something like a 3600) and it is absolutely great. the difference is about 60% faster single core speed not even overclocked between 8350 and a Ryzen 2600.

RX580 and an i5-8400 will do nicely. The 8600K is only useful if you're going to overclock frankly. I have a Ryzen system but if you want Intel, get Intel, just don't get one that's advantage you're not going to use.

I'm not sure entirely what you're on about. I'm not dissing ryzen, my main rig is Ryzen. But there's a balance, or lack there-of. The 8400 is on par with a 580 and could keep up with a 590 no problem.

Balance? I have a friend with a I helped build a computer with a 2600 and a RX 580 non overclocked and he is perfectly happy with no bottlenecks (who I convinced to not go intel?) in it and this seems to be a similar build.

Those are well matched, better matched than the 8600K and the 580. They're neither off by much, but the 8400 is closer, and a better deal if just a bit.

bruv what lmao, this build is mainly for cs go and you are worrying about single core performance? A ryzen 2600 with an rx 580 will run cs go at max settings at 200 fps for around $80 less than either of the options they are giving you. Cs go is the last game you want to base your build off of.
