There is basically no difference between 6600 i 6500, so you should get 6500 and save up some more money. Second, you don't need aftermarket cooler with skylake non k cpus, they already come with stock one which is fine. For gaming, ram speed doesn't matter, and you should get 16gb it will become standard soon. That psu isn't great one either you might want to switch that up, Here's better list:

  1. Theremal paste will probably be on cooling unit, but if you want to make sure just buy 5$ one, you'll need to replace it anyway sometimes in the future
  2. If you ant to install the OS from dics, you must change case than, if not you can find some other way to install it, for example if you have olp pc, just put ne HDD in there and install, there are plenty more ways...
  3. Everything will fit in case, otherwise partpicker would worn you.
  4. As for building it's not that hard, every part comes with instructions how to install it and where to stick what, if you still aren't sure you might get some help from friend or something
  5. As for saving money, if you plan on gaming, not video editing or something like that, there is no such difference in i5 and i7, so just get 6600k if you want to overclock, if not just go with 6500 and h170 mobo

Its no matter if its i5 or i7 for cooling units, k versions don't come with stock coolers you you have to buy aftermarket one(i5 6600k and i7 6700k) . Non k versions do come with stock cooler (i7 6700, i5 6600, 6500, 6400). And even if u want to overclock this cpu (but not extreme overclock) you still don't need this expensive cooling unit, there are some very nice air coolers: noctua nhd14,15 dark rock 3 looks nice etc.

I'm not even sure you can get 1440p monitor for 200 quid, so either save up some more money or go with 1080p

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Not overclocking CPU nor GPU questions"

  • 42 months ago

I5 6600k does not come with stock cooler non k versions come with one, but since you don't want to overclock, you might as well get 6600 to save a few bucks, it isn't much of a performance difference. As for the motherboard, you should pick one of these: h170, b150, or h110. I personaly reccomend h170 because it's meant for personal use and it's got more usb jacks and stuff. Mine serves pretty great. You can add extra fans but it should not be problem just like this, if you're just gaming or doing simple work, i only have one fan, and thing don't get too hot.

There is no point in getting unlocked cpu with locked motherboard, so if you want to overclock you have to get z170 motherboard, and if not get i5 6500/6600 and ditch aftermarket cooler. Also your psu is low tier try getting evga, g2,p2... sesonic or xfx

580$ is budget for whole computer of just SSD and GPU? If it's only SSD and GPU you can get gtx 1070 and samsung evo , but if it's budget for whole build get Crucial CT240BX200SSD1, non of those ssd's are very good, and get gtx 950, it beats 750ti every time. Also don't use cpuand gpu boss they are bad, use userbenchmark.com

Well the purpose of 6700k over 6700 is overclocking, but you can't overclock that processor with h110 motherboard, if you want to overclock you have to get z170 mobo, which costs more. But if you don't want to overclock just get i7 6700, there is not much difference between 6700k and 6700. And also ditch the cooler, 6700 comes with a stock one. Also if you could wait a week or two until 1060 restocks, you might as well get it, because it should be around 250$ and it's performing better than rx 480.

You don't need aftermarket cooler for this processor, it already comes with stock one. For 6500, since it can't be overclocked, you can use h170 motherboard, and save few dollars there. That PSU is not that great, it's tier 2(this one is g1), try finding g2,p2, seasonic or xfx, there is no need for 750w you could settle for less

Bottlenecking is when some of your weak components can effect your faster components and make them slower, for example your pc, q6600 won't be able to fully support 970 or rx 480 so you won't be getting full potential from the card.
