I would drop one set of the memory and get the 3700x then. Going to have to get a mounting kit for AM4 for the cooler.

For memory speed DDR4 is not really faster than DDR3. My memory is DDR3 2400 with 11 cas that comes out like 9.1ns it would pretty much take DDR4 3200 with 15 cas to match it. It's a bit more involved than that but fairly close.

That's not a lot of a upgrade for the money spent.

That I why I still have my 4790k if you overclock it some you right at the same performance except with programs that can use all the cores.

If the build is the saved Dark build in your profile all I can say is OUCH. 1300 bucks less with the same performance.

If you have crashes related to drivers it's not stable. For fixing it they have had 7 months not counting the time for development before the cards were released and their still not fixed.

Why would you buy a card that has driver issues that never might get fixed. Value if you call spending your money on something with known problems value do it but don't try to talk me or somebody else into buying problems. You can spend the same amount for a STABLE card and drivers and loose just a bit of performance.

The monitor is just as good TN panel instead of IPS but GSync. and if it's hard wired then leave off the WIFI card.

  • gives you a full TB of SSD space for the OS and games.

Just a few changes and you could probably get the 2080 Super video card.

The BIOS on the motherboard is already updated and really no reason to add the extra fans.

It's just a 105 watt processor and has very little overclocking room so really any 240mm cooler would work for water cooling. Usually the fans are the loudest part and can be replaced with lower noise fans.
