Putting that sort of money into DDR3 is a false economy, IMO. You will never get anything like that when you come to sell it later.

This will get you a 120mm AIO cooler so you can overclock your CPU, 16GB of DDR3-2400 memory (in blue, so it matches your board) and a GTX1060 6GB which is the perfect 1080P gaming card with plenty of CUDA cores for video encoding.

This is what I may go down the road with, as it looks the better option!
I'm also debating on getting a Water Pump Corsair H Series what can you recommend?

You'd better off with an air cooler than a 120mm AIO tbh. 120mm AIOs are not worth it especially the cheap ones. Just my 2 cents. I'd get a nice Cryorig H7, if you wanted to spend more on the AIO then any of the NZXT or Corsair 240mm are worth it.

Honestly I don't see the point of AIOs at all, they sit awkwardly between high end air coolers and a proper custom loop. Sure, they're convenient, but they're only slightly better than a proper air cooler yet cost more, are louder and more prone to failure.

AIOs make sense in compact setups where there's no space for an air cooler, otherwise I'd steer clear. I regret buying into this fad.

Also, what, why would he go from r9 390 to a GTX 1060? They,re really close in performance, sure the GTX is more power efficient but that's about it. Similarly, why would he swap NH-U12S to a 120mm AIO? Even in cooling power that's a sidegrade.

For editing the Ivy Bridge i5 is showing its age, I'd personally save up until Ryzen upgrade (either 6 core or even 8 core) is feasible, and sell the ivy CPU/DDR/Mobo. A 2600 would cool well under that Noctua, be night and day in video editing and provide a slight boost in gaming. That would also be a platform you could build on in the future.

Example: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/z82vbX at £388, would result in a respectable gaming/editing setup especially for 1080p. I don't know how much a 3570k/8gig/Z77 would sell for, maybe £140 is in the ballpark? Either way, you could easily fit a case in that budget as well, after selling the old hardware.

AIO are good because they allow much easier and better access to your motherboard without ripping your hands to shreds. They also put much less pressure on the PCB. If you move your rig around a lot (LAN maybe) they are a much better option.

I agree that a 120 is not good enough if you are overclocking, though.

And yeah, I think spending that on DDR3 now is a complete waste of money but ho hum I said what I had to say. And yeah the 3570k is really beginning to show its age now, because Sandy is too and it clocked higher so there was nothing in it.

So I'm back



Ready to make my purchase.


I'm still deciding on what Motherboard I should go with, I have two ideas:


https://www.ebuyer.com/854868-msi-b4...-b450-tomahawk


or


https://www.ebuyer.com/854871-msi-b4...50-gaming-plus


Any ideas?


Thanks
Rob

Get the one you like most in terms of colors or theme, they both fine boards.

Not really, both have serviceable VRM's and you could probably get a little more out of the cpu, but seeing as you are going ryzen, and most of those tap out at 4.2 or 4.3 ghz, i wouldn't stress to much about it as ryzen 2 prettymuch boosts up to those frequencies on its own as long as the temperatures allow it.

Of those two I'd go with the Tomahawk which was originally my own selection, but then I opted for the MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon since it has the same VRM as their X470 Gaming Plus.

Downside being lack of voltage offset control on MSI bios.
