AMD ryzen 2600x build opinion

 Share

First time building an AMD based pc. My main reason is running programs like Maya, Blender, Unity etc with 1080p 60 fps gaming as an after thought.There is no HDD cause ill use an older 2tb one that i have. Im planning on OC-ing the cpu a little. Any suggestions about changing something. Have in mind i live in a third world country so i dont have a lot of options about the parts nor are the prices this low. I just need a green light from you guys before buying the components.

If you wanted to, you could switch to the 2600 non-x variant, which is a heck of a lot cheaper for basically the same performance. For that cpu, you don't really need an aio; a cheaper air cooler for around $40 would do. Other than that it is fine

That motherboard is total junk. Drop the cooler if needed to get something better.

That cooler is pretty rubbish, only use it because you like the look of the CPU block and don't really care about good performance.

Certainly better than the MSI one the OP had earlier. Do you have any other recommendations?

non-X version could be cheap enough for you to buy the cooler right away. However the M22 can be beaten by air coolers at this price like the Noctua NH-D15 easily, so no reason to use it unless you're all on for looks.

It doesn't any VRM heatsink. Put a Ryzen 7 in it, or overclock a Ryzen 5, VRMs will overheat and throttle the CPU. You'll end up going nowhere.

 

Also partly because we don't know how much power Zen 2 CPUs will draw when overclocked, so there's some conservative estimates in there as well.

The second one has more options. If the page is in Macedonian, you can change it on the flag at the page.

As you can see most of the boards are 300 series... Not a lot to choose from.

Yeah you are not wrong there ? Could you order from a different Country ? Maybe Germany or UK etc ? as that would give you more choice. Places like Amazon should ship to Macedonia.

Something like an MSI Tomahawk would be fine. It is ATX but you are going with an ATX case so it will look better than a mATX one.

 

If you do want micro ATX then there is the MSI Mortar.
