what you think of this for an upgrade?
I run a Corsair Obsidian 750D case, so this cooler should be okay?
Yes my graphics card is only a Nvidia 970, but since not much around at moment, I could do that later.
Should I go with 32GB ram instead of 16GB?
Mainly used for games. like Cyberpunk etc.
oh and I still run at 1920x1080 at 144mhz

Just forget Asus B450 boards.
Those have scam level CPU VRMs good only for 65W TDP CPUs.
MSI was only one paying real attention to VRM in B450 boards.
Though by cutting fashion excess already from cooler could easily get B550 board with genuinely good VRM and modern features.

Also that memory is extremely brand and Ridiculously Grossly Bloated overpriced.
Because of those Corsairs having mediocre 18-22-22-42 latencies you can get faster latency memory for £150

Even discounted 64GB kit would be little cheaper:

Same price. Intel version for 10 core 10850k and WiFi board

My basket at Overclockers UK:
Total: £830.42 (includes shipping: £10.50)



Bit of a pain Intel's CPU don't come out till end of march for 11th Gen . Also 10850k is $400 in the US so £360 odd but hadn't come over :(

Shame board out for stock for AMD version
