In past years when i thought of desktop - i thought of server - i’m always working from my laptop(thinkpad ftw) but time has come with new ryzens i decided to build a pc
some 9 years ago i bought a pc(i5 660, 4G ram) and house it in Chieftec BH-01B-U3-OP which i still find most beautiful desktop chasis ever and put in corsair cx600W psu
So i was thinking about getting ryzen 5 3600, asctuall i have it all listed:
AMD Ryzen 5 3600
Gigabyte B450 Aorus ELITE
DDR4 16GB (2x8) Corsair 3200MHz LPX Black
Asrock Radeon Phantom Gaming X RX580 OC 8GB
Samsung 970 Evo Plus 250GB
Toshiba 4TB 3.5" 7200rpm, 128MB, X300
(and slap Arch on it, btw )
so my question is - how should i handle cooling, is stock cooler ok? should i put a noctua 120mm to pull air out of it over the cpu? Any other coolers?
Is putting psu above mbo still a thing? from what i see lately - it isn’t but i really don’t want to change chasis
any other advices? maybe drop HDD and move up to rx 5700 ?
I have 3 monitors(2x24" 1920x1200 + 22" 1920x1200) if it makes any difference. most likely will leave 22" attached to my docking station - plan is to still work from laptop at least when i have to to the office
Thanks in advance!
