It's smaller than most high-end air coolers, actually.
You honestly don't need to SLI. It's mostly unstable and buggy, and an SLI 950 (If you even can) won't be worth it. But if you still want to SLI, then get a GTX 1070. You could get a GTX 1060 for now, they're cheap and support multiple monitors, but they don't support multiple monitors. The Scythe FUMA is an air cooler, and should be available in the UK.
You're not getting good value by getting four 4 gig sticks. The difference between quad channel and dual channel are negligible. You're better off getting two 8 gig sticks. I would also recommend getting a 1tb HDD. 250gb will not last you long at all, and you don't want to fully fill your SSD, as that will affect its read/write performance by quite a bit. The GTX 950 isn't the greatest card around. The cheap 1050 ti is overall better. If you can fit in a RX 470, that would be even better. As far as CPU coolers go, I would recommend the Scythe FUMA. It's cheaper, and it contends even with some water coolers. Plus, you don't run the risk of leaks with it.

Other than those changes, it's a great system.
No, a 250gb SSD is pretty much all you'll need. It'd be fairly overkill to go any higher unless you're more than willing the spend the money.
Get an RX 470 or a 1060 6gb, that'd be my recommendation.
That's what I plan to get plus these to go with it: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/mmdwyf
It's extremely difficult to save up for this thing, and I would kill for this computer.
No worries, mate! Always willing to help!
Bottleneck is widely misunderstood, but in this case, your CPU will not bottleneck. This is more powerful than the I5-6600k Skylake, and that CPU can run a 1080 with no issues. You'll be just fine.
You have a large 200mm fan in the front already, that's plenty of airflow. You won't need three fans. Just get a 120mm fan for exhaust and mount it on the top. You'll have ample airflow just from that.
I meant a wireless one would be better, not a wired, lol. I type too fast for my own good.
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/X3zD7h I dropped the Rx 480 to a 470. It's only a 14% performance difference between the two. With this setup, you'll be able to run most games. For light video editing, this CPU will do fine. For heavier editing, it'll bog down.
Yeah, but don't get the wired adapter. I assume you want this thing for portability, so I wireless one would be better. For some reason it slapped a wired adapter in there by itself.
No, it won't bottleneck. If you had a 1080, then yes, it would. Good idea on getting an aftermarket cooler. The Node 202 can get rather toasty. I would personally advise a Noctua fan, but you're not overclocking, so that's not necessary.
I don't understand why people feel that all they need is an SSD. Unless you have a 1TB SSD, you're going to want an HDD. Anyway, I've made a couple changes.
Chances are, you need a new motherboard.
Well, with a new Mobo, you would be able to change the CPU fan RPM. I do not care in the least bit about silent operation in a system like this. So, max RPM should keep it cooler.
Swap out the RX 460 with the 1050ti. It's not much more, but it performs a bit better. Roughly 25% better. And I would recommend getting a good Mouse over a keyboard, as any basic keyboard is as good as any when it comes to functionality. A good mouse goes a long way,
The 1050ti makes a good difference, so that's well enough for the budget.
Not looking to gain FPS. I am aiming to increase the lifespan of that PC. If the CPU runs cooler than it does now, it'll last longer.
Why do you have a 950? The 1050ti is better. If you can afford it, the 1060 3gb is even better. Everything else looks okay, though I would get a better PSU if you can fit it in your budget. Since you're online gaming, try to use an Ethernet cord instead of wifi, so that will increase stability. If you can't use Ethernet, then wifi is fine.
The I3 is better in every way. It's in total 30% better. Even with the six cores, the FX-6300 can't keep up. The I3-6100 has four virtual cores(threads) and each core on the I3-6100 is 57% faster.
This is very beefy system... But honestly, 64gb is RAM is absolutely excessive. Nothing in the PC world today, for what you'll be doing, will be getting close to that. A 16gb system would work just fine. 32gb for future-proofing. And I would recommend a CPU cooler with fans on it. Your CPU will be under a heavy load, and a heatsink only does so much. You might as well get an AIO system. As far as storage goes, I don't see the need for two 1 Terabyte SSDs. The motherboard is a lot, too. The MSI X99A GAMING PRO CARBON will be enough.
Why an air cooler? Why not stay liquid? You should always provide a reason why.
Air coolers are reliable. There's only one component that can fail: The fans. The Scythe FUMA contends with most AIOs.
Water cooling has risks, but generally offer better temperatures. Those risks being the leaking and if one component fails on an AIO, everything fails.
Swap out that PSU for the EVGA SuperNova G2. The NEX is overpriced and outdated
This PC could use a new Micro-ATX motherboard xD. A simple 30$ one.
Yeah, a new CPU would require me to replace the motherboard. I'll keep the two 750TIs because why the hell not? I know a 1050ti is much better but meh
Thanks! It does surprisingly well for what it is. I can run XCOM 2 on hybrid medium-high settings and average 24 FPS, 6FPS being the lowest and 49FPS being the highest.
Yeah, I read it. So the T2 fits clearance-wise. That's great. It's a 140mm tall cooler, which leaves me with some options. I am going to get the Zalman CNPS9500A and the cheap and simple Artic FX F8 80mm fan just so I can have a little more airflow in the case. I intend to drill bolts into the case and attach the fans that way.
I know I didn't save much, but at least it was lowered.
I think it will. Zen has shown promise thus far. Whether or not it can compete with Kaby Lake is another question.
I don 't know much about these things specifically, but this one has favourable reviews
I'm no expert on motherboards, but that board, I believe, isn't wireless. But it does have a wireless Ethernet installed. You may have to get a wifi card or USB
This. AMD products right now are greatly outclassed by Intel. Until Zen comes out, AMD isn't a good option.
You're welcome, mate!
It's 50$ over your budget, but I will show you my justifications for this parts list.
No problem, mate! And yeah, some are like that, lol. But you should always do your research. Great YouTubers are Bitwit, JayzTwoCents, LinusTechTips, Paul's Hardware...
There's likely more, but those are the ones I watch. Also, forums like these help.
If you can afford the I7-6700k, then great. But you won't notice much increase in performance in games, but you will in programs like AutoCAD.
I can't speak for liquid coolers, but I am going to assume it's okay. I would personally go for the NZXT Kraken, but that's because it looks cool. Just my preference if I were to use liquid cooling :P
Good thermal compound.
RAM is cheap, fast, and low profile. Good pick.
Honestly, I would get a 250gb SSD and a HDD for mass storage.
1070 Strix is a nice and solid card. Nice pick.
Pricey (But yet again, I am going to buy a 250$ case, so I shouldn't be talking :P) but from what the review say, it's a nice and solid case. Looks elegant, too!
Excellent PSU choice. Though, that PSU is more than you will ever need. The 550 G2 SuperNOVA would be a good pick and still provide more than enough power for your build.
The Scythe Slipstream is okay. It doesn't last too long. The case comes with plenty fans, you don't need to get any more... yet.
I hear nothing but good things for this keyboard. Good pick.
Overall, it's a solid build you put together. Some minor changes that I would do, but that's just me.
The read speed is the one you want to look at. The EVO has a faster read speed than the ADATA one.
It's best to utilize dual channel. Sure, the value isn't great, but at least if one stick fails, you still have the other.
That be quiet! PSU you originally selected is a good PSU.
From what I've read, the difference between water cooling and some of the best air coolers isn't a massive difference. It's not like water coolers are better then the best air coolers by a big margin.
The Scythe FUMA may be one of the best air-coolers out there. I believe you're underestimating air coolers :). If you really want to squeeze every bit out of performance out of a cooler, then you could go for water cooling. But the differences in performances aren't great between the two, so it boils down to a preference: Do you want water cooling or air cooling?
