Thoughts about My Proposed Desktop Build?


Jul 3, 2016
The last time I was on tomshardware, there was a forum for feedback on proposed builds. I can't find it, so I'm posting here. If you know of a forum for builds, please let me know.

Currently, I'm running a 2013 build:
Intel i5-3570k overclocked
Cooler Master Hyper 212+ heat sink
16GB of Corsair DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) and Samsung DDR3-1333 (PC3-10600) with 12GB utilization
Samsung 830 Series 120GB SATA-3 SSD hard drive
Western Digital 1 TB SATA-3 HDD
ASUS P8Z77-M microATX motherboard
EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti SSC Gaming ACX 3.0 GDDR5, 4GB
Windows 10 Home at 64 bits
won't boot from NVME per ASUS tech support and my attempts to do so.

I already have a Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus ATX mid-tower case.
I have a bit less than 1 TB of data that is slow to search.

Here's my proposed build purchases:
i7-8700k Coffee Lake 8th Gen
Cooler Master Masterair MA410M heat sink
ASRock Z390 Extreme4 ATX motherboard
or Gigabyte Z370 Aorus
1TB WD Black NVME m.2 SSD drive
16 GB Patriot Viper 4, PV416G340C6K, DDR4-3400, 2 x 8GB sticks RAM

Please give me feedback, especially concerning alternative components.

Thank you
