So I'm finally replacing my previously built pc. I am buying everything new as it is that old and behind with the tech. Will only be cannibalizing my HDD's
Here is what I've come up with so far. I'm mainly looking for help on what cpu cooler to use and if I can get by with a 550 watt power supply. I will not be putting a graphics card in as I will not be using this for gaming or video editing (although I may try my hand a video later, but just basic stuff with my fuji gear).
Motherboard: Asus Prime Z270-A
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB)
Storage: SSD or possible M.2 (Only looking to have 120/250GB internal...for now)
Power Supply: Corsair CX550 or 650 if more power is needed
Case: Fractal Design Define C mid-tower
CPU Cooling: Help!!
I've looked at the Noctua NH-D15 and the Be Quiet! Dark Rock 3. As I'm not planning on overclocking the processor, I'm not sure if those coolers are overkill for my specs. I am open to liquid cooling as well although I am concerned about the system breaking and causing damage inside the machine. Any suggestions?
