  • cheaper, faster RAM
  • more SSD storage for your money
  • more HDD storage for your money
  • there is no point for Hybrid HDD (SSHD) when having an SSD already
  • why do you need a WiFi? Ethernet (cable) connection is more reliable
  • why do you need an optical drive?

Yeah, and the MOBO could also be cheaper

Could be, but that motherboard has amazing ratings. If you plan to use it for a long time, do extreme overclocking, use multi-GPU setup, I would stick with it.

Otherwise yeah, go for a cheaper gamer board, e.g.: MSI Z170A KRAIT GAMING 3X for $129.99 .

I personally don't think a full tower is needed these days, if you are set on having an optical drive then I'd suggest the Fractal Design Define R5 or Cooler Master Mastercase Maker 5 (or Pro 5) as a case instead of a full tower.

You also don't need such a large power supply and the 650W EVGA SuperNOVA G2 has a great deal on in the US as its $59.99 which is amazing value for such a great PSU with a 10 year warranty.

I'd suggest a much better CPU cooler than the Evo for your build. You've selected a great SSD but you don't need a hybrid hard drive really.

If you dropped the optical, went with a different case, and/or used a slightly cheaper motherboard you could fit a GTX 1080 into your budget.

It could be a beast air cooler like the scythe fuma or a noctua one. They perform as well as an AIO water cooling option. Or you could go for a 240 or 280mm radiator AIO like the NZXT Kraken X61 or Cooler Master Nepton 240.

so is a water worth getting or will it be a pain to deal with in the future?

An All-in-One Water Cooling option like the NZXT Kraken 61 requires installing, and mounting and then should be good for the future. It has a 6 year warranty.

i read the reviews and some people said the kraken leaks i found a thermaltake water cooler with good reviews i'll probably just go with it Thanks for helping me! you were able to make my pc 170 dollars cheaper

nvm i read recent reviews and it also leaks! is there any cpu cooler that doesn't ******* leak

  • 37 months ago

I'd be interested to read the reviews about the NZXT Kraken leaking. It's always a chance. A very low chance. Also know that if something like that happens you're more likely to leave a bad review and complain than for all those where it didn't. If you're worried about a leak get a tpp quality air cooler instead but you will need low profile RAM like the Corsair lpx
