Does this build look good?


Am I forgetting anything? Do you have any recommendations that would be a better fit? And will this all run smoothly together? Do I need more fans? Less fans?

I'm just a gamer, who doesn't really build PC's and is lost on what to do and get.

I'm looking at around $2,400 budget and I mainly will run games like World of Warcraft, Ark, Hogwarts, Borderlands, Final Fantasy, Diablo 4 (soon), etc etc.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

    That cooler is a bit wimpy for the i7 level. I suggest the next one up if you like that brand/style, which would be I think the 620

    You said this is primarily for gaming so you might get the i5 13600k as by most accounts that is best for gaming and will save you some $$.

    This looks to be the start of a fantastic build! Pairing a 13700K with the 3070 Ti will ensure you get the full potential of the GPU. I would advise taking a look at AIO Liquid Coolers for the CPU, or following @Magarity's advise and picking up the AK620! If you are ok with spending a bit more the Dark Rock Pro 4 is also a great option for air cooling! I would only worry about getting it to fit without coming into contact with the ram on the board.

    Were exited to see how it turns out! 😁
