https://pcpartpicker.com/list/P33jXP The extra cores of the i5 will help with streaming. You will need to use your i3 to flash the bios of your mobo for it to work with Kaby Lake, so be aware of that. If GPU prices weren't so messed up, I would recommend a 1050Ti or even a 1060 3 gb. Also, maybe an SSD? It's up to you what suits your needs.

You might benefit from checking out Noctua's chromax line? They are incredibly silent and deliver very good performance with a bit of fan curve tweaking. If you don't mind the colours, the Industrial line from Noctua is good too. Otherwise, Corsair's Air series and ML series are good options.

Either a good 144hz 1080p monitor for the GTX 1060, or an M.2 SSD. The SSD you can probably include for the same price as the chosen 2.5" one.

CAD like Autodesk Inventor will run just fine, I get by on my laptop with an i7-7500U.

Now, I had a bit of leftover money so I put the X299 CPU in, however if you wouldn't use the extra power, then you can go back to Coffee Lake and save a bit, use the Asus Z370-E Strix instead of the ROG Maximus.

Kabylake is cheaper at the moment due to coffee lake, and because of NAND shortages prices are going up everywhere else. Also, the extra cores in Coffee Lake aren't actually needed in gaming at the moment, so the main advantage is lost. Also, as he won't be overclocking it is a waste of money to get a Z370 board, which is the only chipset available at the moment, unless you are feeling adventurous and want to reverse the electrical polarity of the socket pins (Have fun frying your mobo)

Fine then, Zen vs Kaby Lake or Zen vs Skylake or even Zen vs Coffee Lake. Intel trumps Ryzen in all but the few games that make use of the extra physical cores.

I suggest getting a 240mm or 280mm radiator for better performance, then you don't need any more fans (there are four mounts for fans in the S340) because 2 are included that will do the job just fine. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

It's slightly more expensive due to the monitor, but 75Hz is a slight bottleneck for a 1060 6gb. G-sync is useful too on the new one. If you want to use the original monitor, get an AMD Rx580 for Freesync:

Hi, Now, should you get the H400i, you should know that it is optimised for water cooling, whether it be an AIO or custom loop. Anyways, while the Cryorig is a good cooler, you will need a better one if you want decent temps or overclocking headroom. M-ATX is better for upgradability, especially if you plan to keep this build for a while and keep upgrading it to keep up with newer programs. Also, you might want to hold out on the H400i. Apparently, the "smart" module that justifies the premium price doesn't live up to expectations, and you might want to wait for NZXT to fix that. You can find a good alternative in the Fractal Design Mini C Tempered Glass. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

CPU: Kept same, good choice

Mobo: Kept same, good choice

RAM: Dual channel RAM. It's best to keep only 2 DIMM slots populated on consumer CPU's as they struggle to make use of the added latency.

SSD: Good

GPU: Actually available at the moment... Here it's mostly down to clock speed and cooler. The bigger the better!

Case: Same same.

Congrats on first H700i build on PCPP! Nice build, and I love the monitor...

You will get similar performance out of both, but the RGB and higher frequency ram of the first appeals to me. Or, you can get Coffee lake for better performance!

Hi, The compatibility recommendations are based on your motherboard. I am not sure if the MSI has compatibility with PCI-E standard M.2 SSDs, you should change your mobo to something like the Asus Z270-A or the Z270-E. In a price range like this, I think Coffee lake might be a good consideration. So, a changed Kaby Lake build: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

The mobo on the Coffee Lake build looks pretty cool imo as well. Otherwise, it looks pretty good!
