Hello guys. I am working on a new build that i might eventually buy. So far here is the build i am looking at

pcpartpicker

I want to see if these parts will do well together/if there are better parts out there that would be cheaper or a little more bang for your buck. I want to try to lower the price a tiny bit on this PC. Now I am Canadian so i go with the Canadian dollar.

Avoid the NEX PSU. If you dont plan on adding a second 1070 you can go with a 550 watts psu, if not a 650 watts would be fine.

From EVGA the G2 is an excellent choice.

I would get the arctic cooler which is a better choice and the krait 3X mobo.

Both are great, I just went with the zotac because I think it looks better. Also I prefer backplate with holes but just get the one you like better.

Also, the new Define C might be a better case choice.

You are recommending a case (MICRO ATX) that is only compatible with micro atx and mini itx motherboards. Did you check both builds. They do have ATX motherboards, but probably you didn't take that into consideration......

Looks good, but both yours and OPs CPU cooler choices aren't too great.

Based on what? Have you checked reviews? The i32 performs slightly better than the cryorig H7 and if you look for reviews the difference between the H7 and phanteks is maybe 2 degrees. Im not saying the phnateks is bad either.

They're both just meh.

Based on what..on your opinion...

Where do you see an H7 anywhere?

There is no H7.. Did you read what I wrote? The i32 outperforms the H7, just look for reviews. Im pretty sure performance between phanteks and i32 is similar or identical...
