1150 best mobo

Hi I'm looking at building a new rig to handle Player unknown battlegrounds.

I have a i7 4770k laying around and cba selling it to buy a newer chipset so going to start my build around it.

Will be looking at adding a gtx 1060 6gb

What's the best chipset 1150 motherboard to get under say £120, would like to overclock and have wifi and bluetooth.

Also can you recommend any psu's and cpu fans as i only have a cpu and ram at the moment!

Thanks

  1. Some of the Z97/Z87 chipset mobos with built-in wifi/bluetooth costs around £200+ new. I would suggest something like this would work match well with your current 4th-gen Haswell i7-4770K, and just add a WiFi/Bluetooth expansion card, all fitting your £120 budget:

  5. Your i7-4770k will physically fit in the Asus B85-Pro, but you lose the ability to overclock as you need a Z-chipset motherboard for that.

  6. Ah I'll cancel it then and get the z87, can you recommend a psu and cooling unit?

  7. For the PSU (3 options, depending on your budget and future upgrades):

    Using the i7-4770K + GTX 1060-6GB, the minimum (most affordable) recommended is this:

    Corsair - CXM 450W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply (£49.89 @ Ebuyer)

    The CX450M will be enough for such setup as the GTX 1060 is very efficienct and low-powered (a 120W-TDP GPU). Even with an OC'd i7, you'll still have enough headroom for other components. However, if you wish to increase such headroom and longevity for future upgrades such as a more powerful GPU, the consider the ~550W version:

    Corsair - CXM 550W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply (£66.80 @ Alza)

    If you prefer one of the best-quality 550W PSUs, you can also consider this, if your budget permits:

    EVGA - SuperNOVA G2 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply (£76.25 @ CCL Computers)

    **************************************************

    For the CPU Cooler (4 options depending on your case height clearance and budget):

    If your case allows up to 160mm CPU coolers, then you can consider these two options:

    be quiet! - Dark Rock 3 67.8 CFM Fluid Dynamic Bearing CPU Cooler (£59.20 @ Aria PC)

    CRYORIG - H5 Universal 65.0 CFM CPU Cooler (£44.99 @ Overclockers.co.uk)

    If your case allows only up to 145mm CPU coolers, then these two will also be good (the H7 non-RGB is currently unavailable in the link though):

    CRYORIG - H7 49.0 CFM CPU Cooler

    CRYORIG - H7 Quad Lumi 49.0 CFM CPU Cooler (£55.99 @ CCL Computers)
