Heavily Modded Skyrim - Special Edition

Mobilizer

37 months ago

I know there aren't any real mods for the game right now, although I'm expecting a lot of core mods to be completed soon. This is my Christmas list. Will it handle heavy modding well?

This will handle pretty much everything thrown at it, especially at 1080p. Only thing I would recommend is:

  1. Get a better CPU Cooler, like the Cryorig H7 if you can.

  2. Get a Z170 motherboard for your i7-6700K. I'm very sure there are Mini ITX Z170 motherboards.

Alright sounds good. And thank you for not recommending water cooling cause I do not want to deal with that! :p

You're welcome!

You could always install an AIO if you feel the need to- it's not much more difficult than installing fans. However, I can understand- you don't want to risk the possibility of leakage. The H7 is a really good air cooler, though.
