The RAM and Mobo has been bought with the idea that one day I'll upgrade him to a 5600X

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 - Wraith Stealth £190
Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) 3200Mhz C16 £160
MSI MPG B550 Gaming Carbon WiFi £132 after rebate
MSI 2070 (my old one, think it was around £450 IIRC)

I was going to give him my old Intel 6600k but it's really showing it's age in BFV and Division 2 as they're apparently CPU heavy so the stuttering is quite bad.

Ah I think it might have been on sale when I got it but in all honesty it came up as recommended when I Googled decent RAM haha.

Is the cooler going to be ok? That was a concern I had.

Do OCUK not post same day? My order still isn't dispatched and I'd have thought by ordering it so early it would have been.

I'm also waiting on a dispatch notification for a next-day delivery order from Monday afternoon. I'm hoping they're just batching up orders and then sending out confirmation later on, because I won't be at home to receive it if it doesn't come tomorrow...
