    Your computer's descrption doesn't show aany graphics card(s). I'm sure you purchased one.

    - The Ram will be, per factory settings, at 2666Mhz. You can overlock it, through bios, to 3200Mhz (past the 2666Mhz point).

    - The motherboard allows Dual Channel Ram to be used. Make sure to put a Ram stick in the 1st and 3rd slots. Go into your bios and make sure that the ram is showing up as (dual channel). If not, switch the Ram, on the 3rd slot, to the 2nd slot.

    - The Noctoua D15 is amazing! I recommend hooking up your power cable first. Place that out of the way, then work on the rest. When you put on the fans, they can be a pain. If you need to undo a fan, go for the wire hinge. I can take a picture, if you need it, on what I'm talking about. Some Ram slots will force you to move the first fan up some.

    - The intel processor can be overclocked. That's up to you if you want to do it or not. Anytime you overlclock anything, you're voiding warranties and decreasing the life span of your components.

    Besides that, everything looks good to me!

    I have a similar PC and my advise is to keep an eye on thermals. Good airflow in the pc case and little clutter. Remember to enable XMP profiles unless you do manual OC. Your cpu should hit 60C in games and less than 70C in stress testing, at most.

    Also keep in mind that m2 nvme drive slots share lanes with the pci-e so if you have two of them, one will probably share bandwidth with the GPU. Check your mobo manual.

    this game was not designed on any new architecture, no matter what new equipment you buy you will still experience problems. a simple search will validate my answer. good luck.

    Just built a new PC almost just like this, and have zero issues with the game. Only “problems” I had before were due to the old pc.
