Did you not see the real life benchmarks from the video's the NVME drives are not going to help you and you can get double the space going the other way. M.2 is just a form factor not sure you know that.

Is that 115 F or 115 C. The processor should throttle down at 100C keeping it from going much past that temp.

I would say the AIO is either not mounted right still, still have it wired wrong, or pump is dead or dying.

That is why I switched to Air their nothing to go wrong.

The bad thing about obsolete processors is they don't die like the motherboards do. That leaves most people needing a motherboard to replace their dead one and very few people needing a processor so their just not a market for them.

A working motherboard for the FX series would be much easier to sell and probably get more money for it than the selling price when it was new.

Are you buying used parts?.

The 8700K gives better performance than that processor for a lower price, for the rest of it it depends on what your using the PC for.

Spending way to much on the case.

I cant say anymore than that without knowing what the PC is going to be used for.

If its for gaming better performance with 1TB of SSD space, better processor, better video card, and only 50 bucks more including the motherboard price. . PCPartPicker Part List

If it's for gaming their no need for the nvme drive at all you will get about a 1 second faster boot time that's it. Just buy another 1tb SSD you can get it in M,2 form if you wish.

For most people the 9700K is plenty of processor.

The 2070 has about the same performance of the 1080. Both would work well for up to a 1440p monitor.

No because the best processor it can use is a 7700K 4 cores and hyper threading all the newer processors have at least 6 cores just for the I5.

That would put you 570 in cost this is less than 5 and a lot better.

You would also need to add a CPU cooler to the price so that would put in this range that would just crush anything you could put in that board.

To tell you the truth your going to need more processing power for 4k video editing. I dont think upgrading anything will really help.

Probably time to rebuild.

You would need to buy 2 sticks of memory to get 16gb, the board does have a M.2 slot, for the card it looks limited to a single slot card because of the 24 pin power connector.

You already have the best processor you can get, looks like 16gb of memory is supported, 180 watt power supply probably limits you to a 1030 video card.

Why 2 X 1440p monitors gaming on 2 monitors puts the bezel right in the middle of the game.

I would of went with a ultra wide instead. or either the 1440p and a 1080p and run the game on the 1440p and use the 1080p for side programs or whatever.

Download and run OCCT and make sure your CPU temps are good, if not clean your cooler out. You could also turn the in game settings down if that helps then get the new video card.

Like I said the 1660 is over a 100% upgrade.

That is a big can of worms been their done that. I can work their engine fairly well, along with supporting programs to import to it, even C++ Been using MS visual for a long time.

The PC is easy things I hope you know.

  1. Your not going to make the next PUG. They hire people for big games that just specialize in lighting, terrain , AI or other areas on the engine. 1000's of hours.

  2. It takes a lot of supporting programs. you need to know C++ or another supported language + programs to make the charters and items, clothing, everything.

  3. It will take you a long time just to make a simple game unless you know how to use the other programs. By simple I mean like just cars that race around a track in simple mode just steer and give it gas. I'm not even including damage to the car if you wreck.

  4. That is a very poor game engine to make games that everybody can run. Look at SOTA the game that was supposed to replace the longest running MMO Ultima Online. It runs like dog crap on a PC so much they made it so good looking that you can't even play in groups much less multi player on your average PC. For more simple stuff like phone games it's not to bad.

  5. Easy to make the PC for it to make the games very hard to make them so the average PC can actually run them with decent performance.

  6. Drives you will need or might be sorry, internal and external backup for the drives. I use both internal and external. I have at one time worked on C++ for like 12 hours straight then have a SG drive fail on me guess what lost all that work! My internal is set to back up as I work the external is set to back up every nite.
