Hey all. First time taking a crack at this. Open to suggestions and minor ridicule. Trying to keep the budget around $2000 or slightly less. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/BH2XWD

If this is meant as a gaming build, looks pretty reasonable to me.

Yes, I'm planning on using it as a gaming build. I just wanted to post to make sure it is good. It has a couple compatibility notes, but from what I can tell it shouldn't be a problem. I think.

Thanks for the input. I appreciate it. You prefer the Scythe over the Noctua? And as for the storage, would the speed for booting up the computer/games for the 860 be any different than the 960?

You prefer the Scythe over the Noctua?

No real preference, this cooler is just better and cheaper than the U14S. (It performs close to a NH-D15)

And as for the storage, would the speed for booting up the computer/games for the 860 be any different than the 960?

I will be a tiny bit slower. See here.
