I don't clean it every monthe, admittedly. ( I should know better), but I have cleaned it several times over the four years of having this. I think I roughly clean this PC out six or seven times every year. But I will definitely do what Boda said, and reapply the Thermal Paste. I'll be getting a new PC sometime soon, but I still want to take good care of the one I have.

I changed your RAM because your Mobo doesn't support a RAM frequency of 2400, and I gave you a cheaper PSU to a 350 watt because you don't need a 550w (Unless you're planning to upgrade in the future)

Yeah it is worth it. As the others have said, using DDR3 with Skylake can result in damage to your CPU. And I am glad I have helped!

I would recommend upgrading to DDR4, it's worth it. I swapped out your Mobo for one that supports DDR4 and is a tad cheaper. I also swapped out your PSU for something cheaper and less wattage, because unless you're planning to upgrade, you won't need a 450w. A 350 is sufficient. I have you a single stick of DDR4-2133 RAM. It'll serve you well. It totals down to 421$.

Of course, this is my recommendation. You are free to do as you will.

16gb is overkill and unnecessary for gaming. 8 is enough, and I have already said I was keeping the RAM how it is. My friend is only going to game, and it's not likely he'll be playing the extremely RAM hungry games or running programs like Autodesk and Photoshop.

Nevertheless, thank you for suggestion!

You're cutting is very close with the PSU, I would suggest getting at least a 550 watt, 650 being the safer option.

To save you some money, tone the the PSU. 750 watts for a 300 watt system is a tad overkill. I would recommend a 550 watt, a 650 if you want some room for more upgrades.

You don't need a CPU cooler if you're not going to overclock, but this is what I came up with. You were also missing some case fans :p

AIO and Air Cooling nowadays are generally at the same noise level. Lower cost ones from both can be loud while the more high quality ones are nice and quiet.

SLI isn't very stable and not too many games support it. But, if you still intend to do it, then I would advise a 650 watt.

I swapped out that power supply for a less powerful but cheaper one, I also swapped the liquid cooler for the Scythe FUMA, as that cooler will meet all your cooling needs for overclocking the 6600k. I also swapped the motherboard for one from MSI. It's a solid board.

Ditch windows 10 and use that money to get a Scythe FUMA. It's a very good cooler, and allows for a lot of overclocking room. You can get windows 10 for 20-30$ nowadays, so don't use this site's price calculator. I would also advise getting at least a 1TB HDD from Seagate just so you have more storage. If you want fast game loadup times and PC boot-up times, I would also suggest an SSD from Samsung.

I improved performance and saved you money. I decided to exclude the peripherals because you should really worry about those until last, but I kept in the monitor. I also excluded Windows 10 and the Microsoft, because the prices there aren't true. You can get windows 10 for about 30$ and probably Microsoft for a reduced price. You've got great overclocking potential thanks to both the CPU and the CPU cooler, and I don't personally see a reason to have two SSD's in a build like this. One HDD for storage, and one SSD for programs and some games. You can always install another SSD if you run out of space for it.

The Scythe FUMA would a great cooler choice, as it's only 149mm in height, and it's a very good cooler.

The case has a maximum clearance of 160mm for the CPU cooler. The cooler itself is 163mm in height. So, you won't be able to fit it.

A gaming PC can do almost anything, and with that CPU, running programs like Autodesk won't be much of a problem. This PC is better suited for gaming than rendering in programs like Autodesk and Photoshop. If you don't use either of those programs, or you do but not extensively, then you're perfectly fine. This PC is cheaper, and slightly better.

You don't need a 750w power supply. A 550 or a 650 watt will do just fine (650 if you intend to upgrade). And if you are willing to fork over 25-30$, then I would definitely recommend the Samsung 750 EVO 120gb. It's an overall faster SSD.

I would advise that you go ahead and jump to the 6600k, but that doesn't come with a stock cooler, and purchasing an aftermarket cooler would certainly go over the 750$ budget unless you cheapen up the RAM.

You generally only need 8gb of RAM if you're gaming, and for a 750 $ build, that's all you'll need.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Looking for a Monitor/Other Suggestions"

Well, doing the comparisons, the 6600 is only about 5-10% better than the 6500. Personally, I would give out the extra 20$ for that wee bit of performance. But honestly, the 6600k is the better option for this build.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Looking for a Monitor/Other Suggestions"

  • 37 months ago

Well, I would suggest swapping out the Intel Core i5-6500 and get a 6600k. If you're not looking to overclock, then just the 6600 will do. As far as SSD's go, I would personally stick with Samsung, as their SSD's are reportedly really good. As well as Kingston. As far as monitors go, what's your price range? I would also go with a normal ATX board since you have a standard ATX case, nothing wrong with Micro ATX, except they typically possess less features as opposed to an ATX.

The PC hypothetically draws 370 watts, yet you're throwing in a 850 watt PSU. Do you intend to upgrade later on? If not, then 850 is overkill. I would personally suggest a 650 watt, or at minimum, a 550w.

The case will stay, I realize it's 160$, but I am more than willing to pay for it. And as far as PSU's go, I've read nothing but good things about it. Can you elaborate? As for the case fans, I just wanted LED ones that could keep my PC cool while I overclock the CPU. Also, I wasn't aware the the EVO 212x Dual fan wasn't a good value CPU Cooler. Should I opt for standard one instead?
