your mother board (z170) is for overclocking but your cpu does not support it. It will work, but you can change it to a cheaper motherboard.

There is no OS in your build, I assume you must have it already.

What mother board would you recommend for gaming and streaming? that would be compatible.

Personally i'd go with Asus or Gigabyte H170 chipset probably if I had to, but myself I'd really get a k cpu and z170 board, just costs a bit more. They have different features, which you can see in the below links.

Z: The Z-series chipsets are the top-of-the-line mainstream option. Intel normally launches its Z-series before any other chipsets in the family, shipping alongside early K-SKU CPUs of new architectures. Z chipsets are fully unlocked for overclocking, generally host more PCI-e lanes, and are the “premiere” offering among Intel's same-family chipsets. “Z” means “Performance” in Intel vernacular.

H: The H-series chipsets host the same CPUs and architectures as their more expensive Z counterparts, but are more feature-limited. The H chipsets will often include small business features that gamers will find useless, but also disable some other performance/enthusiast features (like overclocking) as a means to offset cost and reduce complexity.

B, Q: B and Q chipsets are targeted almost entirely at business. Small business features and virtualization features creep into the options offered by B and Q chipsets. Overclocking is disabled.

you mind making the changes to my pc part picker then on your preferences?

something like this would be my preference. You could do it cheaper of course without the K cpu/cooler and with a cheaper SSD. 8GB ram would also save a bit and it's all most any game needs, and you could add more later if ever need. I just left your PSU GPU etc. the same.

i see you added liquid cooling i like the whole build that you made is there any way you could change that into a fan cooling way

Everything is compatible and should work. The parts I would change are the two storage drives and the power supply.

Why would you recommend me to change the storage is it because of having two?

  • 38 months ago

Yes. Unless you specifically require two SSD drives it is cheaper to buy a single larger drive.

True. Thanks Buddy

I thought you might be doing raid or something so didn't mention it. Usually 1 is better, or if doing 2 you would at least do the same one and not different model/brands.
