Looking for some advice and wanted to ask about a few things.

So this is my current build I am planning. I am upgrading from an old pc but only keeping the GPU and PSU https://pcpartpicker.com/list/CjQvWb

I just wanted to make sure everything is compatible. I already checked all the warnings at the bottom of the list and they are all fine except I'm not sure about clearance. I wanted to make sure everything will fit with the case I chose. Thanks for any advice

  • OK you can get a 360 AIO in the top of that case but I think you maybe better with 240, this will give you a bit more room to play with, also you can get one that matches the existing case fans.

  • I think you should consider an X570 motherboard.

  • Possibly consider different storage options, better NVMe drive & better mechanical drive, both cheaper.

So what is the reasoning on the x570 MB

The VRMs are designed for higher core count processors and you get AMD's precision boost overdrive to maximise performance. Whereas with 400 series boards you only get precision boost 2 which is constrained by various thermal & power limits, precision boost overdrive allows you to raise some of these limits to get more performance.

Also, I checked the Storage options u sent and the HHD is good but the SSD is 40gb less and only seems to be 300mb faster and I don't mind that trade-off unless I'm missing something big in the difference between the 2
