Hi, This is the build I'm considering:

Coolermaster H500M ARGB

I5 9600K 3.7Ghz

MSI MPG z390 Gaming Edge LGA1151 DDR4 Mobo

Arctic Freezer 34 Esports Tower CPU cooler with Bionix P-series case fan 120mm PWM

Corsair Vengeance RGB Black PRO 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3200mhz

Samsung Evo 860 1TB SSD



For a GPU I'll be using a 1050 ti that I already own for now until I can afford an upgrade.
Good build?

Questions I have;
Is the gaming edge mobo worth the extra money over something like a Z390-A PRO?
What benefit does it have, or am I better of just getting the Z390 A PRO?

Will the cooler I've chosen be good enough? I know it was basically one of the cheapest, so..

Thanks! :)

Thanks!
You reckon the £80 price increase between the 9600k and the 10600k is justified then?

And is the z390 gaming edge worth the extra money over the z390 pro?

Yes, is it justified over the 3600, not really. The 10600 comes in a kf version without integrated graphics as well for a bit cheaper. Alternatively, the ryzen 7 3700x is about the same price as the 10600k but is a better value.

The gaming edge has one more m.2 slot and a type c usb port and slightly better audio, it depends if those extra features are worth it for you. Both boards are lga 1151 not socket 1200 unfortunately.
