I am coming to a hard decision for my build.
I will be purchasing this within the next week and am getting cold feet!
For years I've steadily turned here for advice and input from enthusiasts I've come to trust.
As my family has grown, it gave me less time to have fun, however now as my children are getting older
(and more helpful LOL) I am getting a little more time back into my setup
I have just completed a large amount of upgrades, Desk, Keyboard & Mouse, Storage, Audio & Display setup...
Now it's time to do the big boys CPU - MOBO - RAM
It's coming to a point where I almost feel it's not going to be much difference due to the level of parts and that's making me second guess myself.
Now Right before you see the hardware, I'll put in what my system is used for, as it's been so long I'm sure nobody nowadays knows what my usage style is
Always On 24-7
Gotta be able to at least have OC capability duh! (that's what removed the ASUS boards due to poor VRM setup)
Connects to Gigabit network, I already Have a PCI wireless card (AC
Used as Plex Media Server that has multiple simultaneous connections sometimes
Used as my daily core gaming machine. Display is a 4k 120hz TV Via HDMI
DVD video encoding, would like to be able to do high speed and quality multiple pass encodes
I don't go extra on memory OC beyond what's needed for the CPU
The Permanent parts that aren't changing this build is going into:
Case - Thermaltake CA-1H1-00F1WN-00 Tower 900
PSU - CORSAIR RMx Series, RM1000x
Windows Drive - Samsung 970 PRO 512GB - NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 SSD
Undecided - Need Opinions!

RAM - I want at least 32gb of RAM, Not too picky, any suggestions?
