Thanks.
 
Hey there,

That's a pretty solid build. I wouldn't change much except for maybe the PSU.

The PSU is the heart of your system. I'd want a decent gold unit in there to power your PC. Something like an EVGA G2/G3, Corsair RMx/RMi/TXm, Seasonic Focus Plus Gold, in the 650w range.

The Kolink is most likely a piece of junk. There are no professional reviews, and it's highly doubtful it's made from quality parts. I can't seem to find any resource on it. Defo get a better PSU. The ones I've mentioned have 7-10yr warranties, are made with quality Jap caps, and will transfer from one system to the next and serve you well.

Thank you. Changing to Corsair RM 650x v2 80+ Gold.
