Thank you guys for the input I didn’t give the full story. I can’t use the drp3 anymore because I can’t mount it anymore. I lost the wrench to use and bent the life out of the mounting plate because it wasn’t the most compatible cooler for my motherboard. Rn I am using some $30 cooler from Frys to cool a 5930k so not burning hot but deserves a better cooler. I just wanted to mount the fans to the case as exaust or something. Thank you for the input but any recommendations on an aio that’s cheap enough to not break the bank but can keep my aging x99 build

in all honestly, dont buy a $100 monitor, use a tv in your house at first and save that money and choose speakers OR headphones, and that is half way to a 4k monitor if that is what you want to play your games on. also go for a 250gb ssd because 500 isnt reasonable becasue you should really only store a few games on an ssd and an hdd for the main storage

980 ti can overclock to be faster than the titan x as long as the ti CAN be cooler since after market heat sink. and later, titan cards usually dont drop in price while as 980 ti's drop regularly, back when they dropped, they were around $800 now they are about $600-$650 I strongly push the 980 ti

you have an overclocking motherboard but a non overclocking cpu, either save money and get h170 board, or get a k cpu . since you have a cpu cooler, i say go for the k cpu. you could also save money by going for 8gb of ram and later get the other 8gb, you will never need 32gb of ram

you dont need to buy those fans, the phanteks fans are great and instead of 2 1tb hdd's go for 1 2tb hdd and partition it. saves you money and 32gb of ram is overboard, just get 1 16gb kit now and IF you need it later then buy the other

for 1080, if you are not playing the most intensive games, you could go for a 750 ti or 760 on ebay used for $75-100 and can handle 1080p medium settings. i would say watch some youtube benchmarks to make sure the frames are suitable for you

if there is no difference in price what so ever and the board is the same (like asrock pro z170 or asrock pro h170) go with the z170 in case your chip dies for some reason and u can get a k then, but dont get a worse z170 over a better h170

ok, so what i recomend to you (and sorry for the confusion about 6600 i meant 6500 ) go with the h board and the 6500 and no cpu cooler saving you money, and then in years time you can upgrade to a new board and new chipset like z210 (for example) no need to pay for 2 cpu's within one board's lifespan

if money is tight, i strongly recommend going with an h 170 board and no cpu cooler, intel makes them good enough for non overclocking heat dissipation. i would say in the futer like 4-5 years down the line upgrade to what you can afford, otherwise you are wasting money now getting the 6500 if you will get a k later.

I dont recommend the 6500 in your case, you have a cpu cooler and a z170 mobo so i say the 6500k will be a better investment because over time your cpu will slow down and then you could overclock, and yes non k overclocking works for right now, but

"Obviously, this was never officially supported by Intel and now rumour has it that the chip maker may be moving to block BCLK overclocking on non-K Skylake processors going forward. While many have had positive results using the BCLK method to overclock their non-K processors but Intel is apparently worried about a series of negative effects that could occur over time, like temperature detection failures of even instruction set failure."

quoted from Here they never intended to allow that and overclocking them can damage the cpu more than help it. so i recommend spending the extra money on the k

the fan that comes with the 212evo is better but between the two is within margin of error, if you plan to heavy overclock get a better cooler in general, 2 fans is not better than 1 in most cases. i say 212 evo since you can easily obtain it.

it is a waste of money to buy 3 noctua fans, the case itslef has good enough fans, spend the $60 and put some of that towords at least a 212evo and maybe the rest for a 128gb ssd

the nova nex psu's are not that great, i would recomend maybe a corsair or evga psu, and its not worth buying a cpu now then getting an unlocked one later, i would say go for the 6600k now since it will save you alot later.

go with the 5820k if you dont plan to put more graphics cards in like 3 or pci based storage, and you will NEVER need 128gb of ram so go for a 4x8Gb of ram if you want 32gb so you can get 64 later.

ok so your motherboard type is a z17o, that means you can overclock with them, but your cpu is locked so it cant overclock, so go with a b170 motherboard, save some money and some b170's can overclocked locked cpu's and DONT CHEAP OUT ON THE PSU

you dont need thermal paste, the cooler comes with some that they believe is good for that cooler. you have an unlocked motherboard but a locked cpu, i would say switch to the 4690k . ecc memory is NOT worth it, it is only benefited with xeon cpu's. go for 8-16gb ddr3 ram. the h44 has 4 included fans so dont waste $25 on fans that will add no benifit. and windows 7 pro is not worth the $40 more than windows 10 base. DONT CHEAP OUT ON YOUR PSU there are plenty of cheap psu's that are very good

The only thing i can say is if you can ditch the dvd drive (unless you have cd games or movies) switch to a cheaper air cooler like the noctua NH-u12s or for water cooling Enermax Liqmax II 120. and you can find new 4790k's cheaper on ebay or at microcenter if you can find them and on ebay some are new
