This combo has the latest CPU from AMD, the Ryzen 7 2700X. This CPU comes loaded with 8 Cores and 16 Threads with a base clock of 3.7GHz and up to 4.3GHz Max Boost Clock. The motherboard paired with the CPU is going to be the Asus Prime X470 Pro. On this board, Asus features SafeSlot protection. SafeSlot is a metal shield around the PCI-E slots for added support protecting both motherboard and graphics card from damage due to some graphics cards having an immense cooling system that adds weight to the card. This board is also equipped with multiple onboard fan headers for water cooling and air cooling, an onboard M.2 heatsink to keep your SSD cool and running efficiently, and support for 2-Way SLI and Crossfire. And in addition to that, multiple temperature sensors so you can be sure your system is running cool. **Please be aware that the CPU does NOT have integrated graphics and a dedicated GPU will be needed to display video.
