Need help with upgrade

Popeskill

1 month ago

I am looking to upgrade my PC and would like some feedback on my build.

The power supply and case are what I will be using from my current build. Will that ram fit with the cooler? Is the cooler sufficient? What is the extra eps connector error? Should I get a new case entirely? If I do overclock it won't be until years down the road. Is the Mobo overkill?

Cooler is one of the best so you're fine. RAM might be a very tight fit so I cannot confirm. You may end up having to situate the fan more forward to allow for extra room if it doesn't. EPS is the cable at the top of your motherboard. Your PSU should have an extra one, your 'cpu power', but if it does not then you'll need to buy an additional cable that's compatible with it.

Switch to a mobo with no issues with EPS cables

very short RAM

Added the popular 500Gb SSD/2TB HDD for storage

2080 Ti for a good pairing with the 9700k

750W PSU

not sure what the other plans were with the build, so I guessed there.
