Hello building a computer need to know the best cooling options for the intel i5 9600k. I will be using it to play games at 1080p, 1440p and 4k. I might be over clocking.

Parts list;


Help appreciated thank you.

What i did here, except the added price for that Logitech G513 Carbon keyboard...

Changed the board with a cheaper unit.

The Asus will do, but the MSI is cheaper and definitely not inferior than the Asus one.

I would even say, the MSI should be better. It uses 1 more phase for the CPU and has damn good heat-sinks over the mosfets.

Doubled the capacity of the SSD drive.

Superior PSU unit from Corsair

Last but not least, changed the CPU cooler with a better one for overclocking purposes. (includes good quality syringe thermal past too)

Now if you exclude the keyboard price, you will realize the end price of my build is the same as yours but with better parts!

So, that's a WIN. :)

but the reason i wanna get corsair keyboard and mouse is because of the app the lets you connect all your rgb things and give them the same color and pattern, and logitech isnt one of the brands that is compatible with it.
