Asked here once before, but I figure the more critiques, the better. Its a simple gaming pc, no overclocking, looking to save where I can and optimize elsewhere. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/QQw7NQ

you dont need a K version of your cpu if your not overclocking, but other than that it looks good

Why pair an 8700K with a motherboard like that one? (you can't make full usage of it)
