    Getting a PC up and running

    I have i5 8600K , 32 gig 2333 ram. M.2 950 pro, Strix 980 GPU , PSU and going in a Corsair 740 Cube case. Will be using this for gaming

    Now need a motherboard and a CPU cooler ?

    Case can take 360mm rad in front and 240 or 280 rad at top so want a all in one AIO cooler that is value for money

    And after a motherboard.........maybe a class below the ROG series. Dont need RGB or wireless so want something that represents the "value for money"

    Maybe stay with the ROG series, https://www.asus.com/uk/Motherboards...Z370-E-GAMING/

    Certainly ticks the boxes whilst being good value. As for cooler, all depends on how far you're willing to go. Sounds like you'd be comfortable with a reasonable AIO solution. Look at Corsair options.

    I will be overclocking it and the Strix got hammered in a review for temps...it was from the OC3D forums and he is considered pro Asus so have steered away
