If you can spare the extra ~80$, I would get an HDD for mass storage and the G2 SuperNOVA (not the NEX) as the power supply.

it's a decent build. I would've swapped out that CPU cooler for the superior Scythe FUMA, and I would've gone for the G2 SuperNOVA power supply. You lack mass storage. You'd be surprised how quickly ~500Gb runs out and you never want to fill up an SSD too much as it'll kill its overall performance.

other than that, it's a decent build!

Most motherboards from MSI have black and red theme. Don't get DDR3 RAM as you'll be using older CPUs and motherboards. Ditch that god awful Power Supply and invest in the G2 SuperNOVA 550 watt. (Not the NEX)

Locked processors don't need a CPU cooler, as they already have a cooler provided which works well enough to keep the processor cool, even under heavy load.

No, it won't cause any harm to the motherboard. The RAM is simply slowing down to the motherboard's maximum supported frequency. If you upgrade to a motherboard that supports a frequency of 2400, then the RAM can now go to 2400.

Quite a bit depending on the game. You won't be able to run games GTA V very well or any other games that rely both on the CPU and GPU. GPU-intensive games that do not require much CPU power should be fine. Ultimately, on most games, you'd be giving up a lot of performance. It's best to get an i3-6100.

Depends on what she's doing. If she's mainly browsing the web, then an upgrade isn't needed. Even on light games, like Minecraft, she'll be fine. If she wants to play some big AAA title four years down the line then you may be out of luck, but as you said she doesn't game a lot.

No, keep the G2 SuperNOVA. It's the best PSU you can get and you never want to cheap out on the PSU. The CXM is a good PSU, but the G2 is better.

Unless your mother is doing extensive work, she doesn't need a 6600k. Save some money and get the I5-6500 with the B150 Mortar Motherboard.

  • 37 months ago

I am not as knowledgeable as someone like Vagabond, but I still know my stuff. When it comes to water cooling, I can't really help much. All I can really suggest is going with the Corsair H100i.

I can help you with your other parts, however.

Your GPU for example. It's a blower card. Blower cards aren't known for great thermals and they can be loud. I would advise something like the ASUS 1080 STRIX. It offers superior cooling over the blower configurations and looks, in my opinion, much sexier.

Your PSU is great. The RMx has proven to be a reliable and capable PSU. However, the SuperNOVA G2 from EVGA is even better. (Don't confuse it for the NEX, an outdated PSU) I would highly recommend you get the G2.

That's about all I can help you with. I can't help with water cooling or custom water cooling.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "First time PC builder, looking for expert guidance."

  • 37 months ago

The case comes with two preinstalled fans, which promotes static airflow. I would recommend you get an additional 120mm fan and mount it in the front (Make sure you orientate it for intake and not exhaust.) Having an additional intake fan will then allow for positive air-flow, which is slightly better for cooling, and it combats dust collection within your PC.

That's good. You will need to get an HDD later as soon as possible, however. Since you say you're going to do some editing, mass storage is important. A 1tb HDD is only 50$, so it may not take long to save.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "First time PC builder, looking for expert guidance."

  • 37 months ago
  • 1 point

Get a boot SSD. Install your OS, your preferred web browser, and one or of your two most played games. Transferring your OS from an HDD to an SSD is a complete pain in the ***.

Get the Scythe FUMA if you're going with a CPU like that. The Scythe FUMA is probably the best CPU air cooler you can buy, and it's only 50$. And why do you have an 110$ Optical Drive? You can just something just as capable for twenty to thirty dollars.

Since you say you're only gaming, you only need 16gb of RAM. No game out there will require more. The only time you will need 32gb of RAM is if you're 3D modelling, photography, heavy rendering and/or editing.

For your PSU, you don't need that 1000 watt beast. Even if you SLI, you're only going to need somewhere around 650 watts. I would get the EVGA G2 SuperNOVA (Not the NEX) as it's the best PSU currently on the market.

OKay, but you should at least do this:

Get 16gb of RAM, I know from experience that 8gb won't cut it. Even more importantly, get the SuperNOVA G2. It's the best PSU money can buy and it is very much worth its cost.

At least get a 120gb boot SSD, because it's a huge pain in the *** to transfer an OS from the HDD to the SSD.

I wouldn't recommend that CPU. The i5-6600k is better and cheaper. But you will need a CPU cooler for it (get the Scythe FUMA)

Since it's on a table, it should be fine. The case itself is already slightly raised, so it should get enough air flow. If you feel like airflow is being starved, you can raise it up an inch.

It has an AMD CPU, so no. You can build an Intel PC and get better performance.

Titan Xs are overkill. Unless you have money to blow, you don't need them. A GTX 1080 will more that suit your needs. And I would very highly recommend a HDD. Filling up an SSD too much will kill its performance. And you won't need a Titanium certified PSU. Just get the G2 850 watt SuperNOVA.

It's best to achieve positive airflow for maximum cooling capability. If it were me, I would do this configuration:

Front: 1 fan, intake Top, 1 fan, exhaust Back, none Bottom, 1 fan intake

Since you have more intake than exhaust, you are achieving positive air flow. Negative airflow is bad because it can allow more dust to get into your PC. Static airflow is okay.

At least you've learned first hand to never cheap out or buy an outdated PSU.
