My current spec is -

NZXT CA-S340MB-GR Tower
ASUS LGA 1151 STRIX Z270E Mobo
EVGA 650W PSU
Intel Core i7-7700K CPU
Cryorig CR-H7A Cooler
Corsair Vengeance 16GB RAM
RTX 2070

I want to fully upgrade everything except my GPU which I may also upgrade in the next year. I'm willing to spend around £1000.

I've been advised a build already but I want some more suggestions before I buy.

Thanks for any builds/advice.
 
Is that 7700k overclocked? It is still a pretty fast CPU for gaming, but you want what you want I guess. This would be an extremely performant system. Make sure you get the (CPU cooler) Dark Rock Pro 4's LGA1700 mounting bracket here.

Thank you! One question - why doesn't the mounting bracket come WITH the cooler? Also do I need it if I get an 11th gen CPU? I'm trying to get everything from Amazon UK.
