hows the cooler? is it really worth getting a 120 mm AIO?
ususally I would only recommend a 120 aio in 3 scenarios.
If you're planning on bringing the pc to a lot of lan parties, then having a tower cooler can greatly increase the chance of damage in transit.
If you have a case like the silverstone sg-13 where the other option is a low profile air cooler.
If you really like the aesthetic, and don't care about price.
I use the same cooler on an i5-8600k, motherboards default turbo of 4.3 and run under load around 65c
I havent seen it rise anyhting noticable and i have been using it pretty heftily. I'd recommend
+1 I would have gone with a 1070 ti or a 1080, because with cpu of that caliber, you would want to push as much performance out of your pc. And, specifically the 1060 that you have for your pc is not that quiet, please correct me if I'm wrong, but from the reviews and ratings I have saw, that variant of the gtx 1060 is not that good. Awesome Build!
You are 90% right! I don't hear the fan's on this GPU AT ALL, but that may have something to do with the case. I can hear nothing from the PC. but i will be upgrading to a 1080 when my budget allows it.
could have gotten a ryzen 5 2600 and a gtx 1070 ti
1080 is on the list. I just had budget concerns and my old PC wasn't running anything.
