Upgrading Computer

StrallTech

1 month ago

I am upgrading basically my entire computer except for my case, hard-drive, and power supply. I am just double checking that I don't have to get a whole new processing system or do anything special. I also am interested if overclocking might be an option. I am still relatively new to computer building and the world of overclocking and optimizing my parts to make sure I get the most optimal performance.

Here is my upgrading parts list (I am upgrading cpu, mobo, gpu, cpu fan, ram, and monitor for right now. The rest will come at a later date.) https://pcpartpicker.com/user/StrallTech/saved/#view=Xgw4nQ

Here is my current build at the moment https://pcpartpicker.com/user/StrallTech/builds/#view=WNtgXL

So I am keeping the case, the case fans that came with the case, hard drive and my power supply from the original build. I checked the compatibility of all of the parts in the case I have now from my upgrades parts list and I believe I have it all figured out.

(Any notes or advice on my upgrades parts list is appreciated as well. I am constantly looking to see if I can squeeze even more performance out.)

Thanks for the parts, I will look into it. Do you know where I am replacing so much if I have get a new key for my OS or if I need to do anything special to get it to run right or am I good to just plug in everything.

If it's an OEM key that you have used on your previous board it may not work on a different board.

I would call Microsoft and let her disable that key for getting a new one.

Those keys aren't genuine Windows keys and may be unexpectedly disabled.

Also most of the time, those are resold licenses purchased via fraudulent credit cards.

I don't recommend those keys for the above reasons.

If you have already a valid Windows key and it doesn't work with the new board, i would call Microsoft and settle the situation that way.

The sale of those keys violate Microsoft ToS, and the keys may be unexpectedly disabled. Recommending, suggesting, advising, encouraging, hinting, or in any way implying these keys as a solution or option is not allowed on this site.

Okay, my apologies then about kinguin; I won't mention it again on this site. I just had a friend recommend the site to me to get a cheap key and that's what I use now. I wasn't aware of the issues associated with it. What would you recommend now then with me upgrading the parts I am? Try it out and if it doesn't work get a new valid key?
