    Unsolved Is this a good build? could it BE better?

    AMD is very picky with ram, and his choice is not on the compatibility list from ASRock. So, it has a high chance of not working correctly, please do some research. 450W will not overclock well either considering my 2200G build can pull over 100W by itself while overclocked.

    Solved Need help picking a new motherboard

    Yeah I know the pain you are in. I was using my I7 930 setup as an emulation machine and when my 1366 mobo went out I couldn't find one under 200$.... Try craigslist in your area and try to get lucky, but other than that you are in a rough spot. I wouldn't worry about how good the motherboard is...

    Unsolved Is this a decent computer?

    A good flowing case matters, but it will not help that CPU cooler enough to matter. You need to look into a good cooler or an AIO. For a good one you are looking around the 100$ range.

    The AV Windows 10 comes with is more than just poop, its complete garbage with poop on top. You cannot completely disable it though, and unless you are downloading sketch files AV is pointless. Just go without....

    Solved Need help picking a new motherboard

    Good luck. They are hard to find and crazy over priced. Start saving for a new build. The 1366 was retired almost a decade ago and for around the same price as a replacement motherboard you can buy a CPU/MOBO/RAM setup that is better.

    Unsolved Is this a decent computer?

    No. Couple issues. No need for a Z390 board on the 8700K. Get the Z370 and save like 80$. There are benefits with the Z390 chipset, but nothing the Gigabyte Z370 Ultra Gaming WIFI cant do with the 8700K, especially on AIR. On that note, the 8700K is a warm processor. That crap Cooler Master...

    Unsolved Is this a good build? could it BE better?

    First off the memory you selected is not compatible with the ASRock B450M, and Ryzen is EXTREMELY picky on ram. For the best price choose the patriot PSD44G213381. The G.Skill MIGHT work, but Ryzen is way to picky to even mess around with compatibility problems, especially when it comes to ram...

    Unsolved £500 Stream/Gaming build

    True, and I agree, however if he does not plan to overclock there is no need for the Z390 Chipset. Never a bad idea to have an upgrade path though.

    Unsolved £500 Stream/Gaming build

    Ryzen 3 processor on and AMD board would be a good option and probably better. No reason for a Z390 board on a locked processor, so get a cheaper motherboard if staying on the Intel platform. Dump the 1060 for a 1660TI, a lot more performance and they are within a few dollars of each other.

    CPU Temperature

    In rare cases IF you fail to mount the cooler correctly. If it is torqued properly, it will push the excess from the sides. In the case of mounts that are push-pins, this is literally impossible. Both are errors on mounting, not the paste.
