Hello everyone, Buying a new PC, had some parts left over. Can this comfortably max games at 1080p and overclock around 4.3-4.5 GHz comfortably? Thanks.

EVGA G2 would be a better choice on the Power Supply..

Rest of the Build looks Solid for 1080p Gaming..

As for the Overclock.. I don't overclock, but do know every chip is different thus why they call it the Silicon Lottery.. So good Luck with that.. Normally the Getting the Biggest Radiator your case will allow does the best job of keeping the chip cool..

I'm a Massive Air Cooler Guy myself though..

Only thing I would change is getting a Custom GTX 1060 + faster RAM!
