case and cables and power supply

Dec 17, 2020
Well ive been busy buying parts. not cheap at all, however things come and go, and i missed a great deal on a ryzen 5 3600x for a mere 200$ after tax.

Although there is a place online selling "classic brands Ryzen 5 3600x" for a mere 90$ but it seems a bit odd as crap to me for some reason.

SO can someone help me figure out a decent case, power supply, and cables?

I am not sure on what the processor will draw, as i have seen mention in various articles that it can draw up to 330w on its OWN when overclocked to the upper limit on a graphics heavy game.

Asus Prime X570-P

Corsair VENGEANCE LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3200 (PC4-25600) C16 1.35V for AMD Ryzen Black

Samsung (MZ-V7E500BW) 970 EVO SSD 500GB - M.2 NVMe Interface Internal Solid State Drive with V-NAND Technology, Black/Red

$310.55 after tax

AMD – Ryzen 5 3600X Six-Core 3.8 GHz Socket AM4 Desktop Processor

ASUS AMD Radeon RX 5500XT Overclocked O8G GDDR6 Dual Fan EVO Edition HDMI DisplayPort Gaming Graphics Card (DUAL-RX5500XT-O8G-EVO)

378.99 after tax and shipping.

Now I need help figuring out a case and a power supply and correct power cables.

DO i need to get any heat paste for the CPU installation?

Its not the original system i wanted back in june 2020, but Its alot better in the end. yeah the graphics may not be december 2020, more like december 2019 but going by the videos i watched theyll do fine for my 1080p monitor. Its costing more then i watned. Seriously it is.

HoWeVeR it grabs the following pre built options costing about 850$ by the pony tails and rides 'em hard.

Here is the pcpartpicker bbcode, really dramatic difference from what I have actually spent so far on it. Alot different. I guess going hard core diving into the google results can find genuine deals.

After perusing the internet and reading the manual I have even more issue with the power supply to the mobo.

If i read the manual correctly I need both the standard 24 pin cable plugged in AND EITHER the single 8 pin OR 8 pin and 4 pin plugged in.

Yet EVERYTHING online says if ANY over clocking is anticipated I NEED all three plugged in.

Can anyone share a PSU that will work for me. EVERYTHING that is listed as compatible on partpicker keeps giving me that damned incompatability crap
