Hey guys,
In the last days I've searched and built a pc

I would like your reviews on my build and it's compatibility.
I think that I will oc the PC (I've never done it before), My cooling is enough for it?

I'm playing all kind of games, and I would like the PC to be good enough for the next few years with the abillity to upgrade if I need to

Thanks in advance!

Good PC bulid but suggest taking the hardrive out and have two ssd in your computer be much better for loading times and such and plus you can just stick them into motherboard without any wires and also your cpu dose not have integrated graphics so suggest getting 12700k that way your safe and still can use PC if you run into GPU problems in near future and such. There not much diffrence between them both CPU

Honestly, DDR5 isn't worth the double cost, over ddr4, at the same capacity, for such a system. Keep in mind that AM5 is out 9/27, and I doubt 13th gen will be much later than that. Not to mention 40 series and RX 7000 coming this year yet. I would not recommend coolermaster PSU's, as the quality is so hit and miss. I would probably also recommend a 1000w, as next gen Nvida especially, is supposedly quite power hungry. If you truly want to overclock, you are going to want better cooling. Unless you care about ray tracing, I would spend less, and get the 6900xt instead. I would do something more like this, if I had to buy today.

I would argue that the extra $9, for the 12700kf is actually worth getting, over then non K skew, if only for better resale value later on. Also the OP wants to overclock, though I agree it's a waste of time, unless it is just something you enjoy doing.

Why do you think that OC is worthless?

Not totally worthless..........but of much less value than it might have been 10 years ago.

To complete a money making job in 60 minutes rather than 62 minutes, where "time is money"? Then maybe.

Purely as a hobbyist to see how far you can go? Then maybe.

Because you are a slave to benchmarks? Then maybe.

Out of obsessiveness? Then maybe.

CPU design has changed radically in the last 10 years.

Their is little to no OC headroom, in CPU's these days. You can get similar performance, leaving it stock, with power limits removed. In lightly threaded apps, such a configuration can actually be better, as an all core clock might not necessarily be stable, at max single core turbo clocks. I stopped overclocking, after retired my 6700k.
