I have a build here and I want to keep it around 1k USD (max around 1.3k). I don't know if I should put an air cooler on it or a liquid cooler. I do plan on upgrading it in the future, but I want some opinions on what I should get.
Here's my part list: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=f6df3f9b-49f9-4df4-a607-3f0930cf492f
I kept the cooling part open so you could see my budget right now.
Thanks for the help! ❤️
The 5600 is a quite low wattage part so an air-cooler, potentially even the stock cooler should be enough for that CPU which should help with your budget as well!
