Hi Guys

First, a brief intro about a system that served me well over a decade on 4 Ghz overclock non stop. Pls bear with me.

In 2009, I built my first ever computer with i7 920 (d0 stepping) processor with Asus P6T Deluxe V2 motherboard. Got 12 gig ram back then, basic graphic card (as I initially used the system only for chess software), overclocked it to 4 Ghz. Over a period of time, I upgraded to liquid cooling and added graphic cards. The system was working till yesterday morning and suddenly it wouldn't turn on. Did independent PSU test which was a success. When the 8pin ATX connectors are removed system turns on. Computer guy has informed me today that the motherboard is beyond repair and is dead.

Do not know much about technology, except wanting to have the latest. After building the system 10 years back, I forgot everything about computers and never kept watch on the developments.

BUILD -

For Games
(not a pro gamer)
Budget of $1000
Country INDIA
Suggest parts
, can locate in India on Amazon.
Not sure if AMD can deliver what Intel delivered, but back then AMD was still evolving.
About 4-5 months back bought Liquid Cooling for 1366 lga, not sure if that can support latest motherboards, need to check it's manual. MONITOR, GPU 1050 ti, KEYBOARD AND MOUSE CAN BE USED.
With a possibility of overclocking, yes!
Building within a month
Have genuine Windows 7 Ultimate, which I recently upgraded to Windows 10 pro for free (Can this be used on the new system, dumb question)

I suggest that you take a look at pc part picker. You will get more replies once you have something put together. AMD is a top contender now, so I would recommend building a computer around a Ryzen 5 3600 cpu if you can.
Post back if you have any questions.

Liquid cooling - nzxt kraken x62 - 12000
Ryzen 5 3600 - processor - 16199
ASUS am4 tuf gaming x570 plus - motherboard - 24650
Corsair Vengeance lpx 2 x 8gb - ram - 7992
WD Ssd - c drive - 500 Gb - 7700
WD 1 tb internal HDD (2) - 6900
Nzxt h510 case - cabinet - 6445
Corsair psu rm 650 - 9940
(Msi txt 1650 128 bit - graphics - 15949)

This comes to $1426. The price indicated at the end of each item is the Indian currency value. Is there a way to restrict the budget to$1000 by altering few? I will drop out graphics as I got 1500ti oc.I think the computer guy broke my liquid cooling saying it’s already broken for which I will screw him.

You will have to search for the case and PSU manually on Amazon because PCPP didn't recognize the listings there.

Thank you guys, may be building in less than a week. I feel bad for losing my rig after a decade. It worked so awesome until some short on motherboard

yea but not getting water cooling and getting a Noctua cooler which will be 95% the same performance, also drop the MB down to a B450 MB for the same performance.

.I think the computer guy broke my liquid cooling saying it’s already broken for which I will screw him.
I'm curious, what made you think that HE screwed it up? Does it have some sort of funky mounting system, and he didn't torque it down right? Or did he drop it? They do wear out, you know, they have moving parts.

Edit: If you want real logevity from a cooler, go air cooling, and go with Arctic / Arctic Cooling fans, or Noctua, they last a long time, but the actual heatsink should last quite a long time. Although, heatpipes can leak molecules of their coolant, slowly, over time, and become ineffective as well.

LC AIOs, can have pumps wear out, or get clogged, or whatnot.

I'm running a CoolerMaster AIO WC kit myself on this rig, and I'll have to come to a decision in a few years, whether I want to pro-actively replace it (probably) in 3 or 5 years, or run it till it dies (and then it may leak).

When I sent the system for checkup, he said motherboard could not be repaired. He said another engineer will be looking it up. Then called me to inform my WD SSD is broken and does not have OS in it (i was running win 10 till then lol), and further added the gas in the fan mounted on the cpu leaked. When I received the PC, I noticed something missing on the liquid cooling, the wiring was not like before. Some screws on the motherboard are also missing. I repeatedly get the message "CPU over voltage" at start up. When it finally powers on, Real Temp at stock are 35c. I am now unable to overclock at all. I tried that setting and since then received CPU Over voltage. I set all the bios settings to default, still get the same error.

Wow yeah that sounds like absolutely terrible service.

Luckily a Ryzen 3600 will represent a nice overall upgrade, and with a 1050ti through about a GTX 1080/2070, you will be GPU limited all the way.

Do not worry about overclocking the Ryzen, Zen 2 is superbly tuned for stock clocks to be ideal. Also avoid watercooling for this build, it's simply not necessary. Something at or better than a CM 212+ Evo / 212 RGB is more than enough to run a 3600 at happy chilly temps well short of throttling even in fairly high ambients. The 3600 even responds well to modest undervolts, should you be so inclined.

Mobo wise, B450 is more than fine, it's a shame the supply lines and release order got a bit busted, we should have seen more B550 by now. X570 is also an option, but I wouldn't spend big on that, the onboard fans (not interchangeable between various x570 models, a particularly crappy non standardization elemen) represent a pointless potential failure in a system someone might run for 5-10 years.

I've been working on PCs for the better part of 4 decades now, and have never met a sub-60mm fan that is truly robust enough to last the long haul. The little bastards inevitably buy the farm or at the very least start to grind, wobble, slow down, etc as the years wear on.

Ram, 3200 speed is fine, DON'T forget to use Ryzen memory calculator and manually tune timings as best you can. It represents a bigger gain than any OC short of phase change with regards to Ryzen performance. Proper ram tuning is that important on Ryzen.

Good luck, the leap will be ENORMOUS in QOL and I/O especially. Ordinarily I like to help people fix what they have, but I think a CPU that served you for a decade or so in OC role, complete with a suffering under what sounds like probably incompetent techs, deserves to rest in that silicon heaven with the magic smoke and to join with it's ancestors in the afterlife, lol. It's done enough.
