Description

This PC is Equipped with one of the Latest Processors and Graphics Cards which include the RTX Feature that I cannot wait to try out. This Build works extremely well for all Tasks such as Gaming which I mainly use it for and also as a workstation.

Note: This motherboard required a bios Update using an 8th gen processor for the i7-9700k to work which is 9th gen.

Part Reviews

CPU

Absoloutely Great, Does everything I want It to, I mainly use this for Gaming but It also works really well for everything else.

CPU Cooler

Keeps My Cpu Nice and Cool as well as being the best looking Liquid CPU cooler on the Market in my opinion

Memory

Great Product, I'd be lying if I said that the RBG wasnt one of the Reasons why I chose this RAM :P. Jokes aside, this is really good!

Storage

I got my operating system on this and it Boots up my pc Faster than a jet

Video Card

Great Graphics Card, I got this As soon as It was available to me and It hasnt Dissapointed me. Yeah, it doesnt have 2 fans but this Graphics card is really Underated, I dont even Think i've seen any builds with it. Im only giving this 4 start out of 5 because it lacks RGB, and That is a hug edissapointment in my Books :P

Down the road I would change that motherboard out to Z390 so you can overclock your CPU to get a little more life out of it.

KaptainKris1 submitter 1 Build 2 points 4 months ago

Yeah, I will definately do that, Thanks for the tip

How to make LEDs actually look nice; exhibit A right here. Nicely done and clean.

KaptainKris1 submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

I think if you go all black with your parts and then have bright coloured LEDs it makes it look good. Pretty much all my parts are RGB so that is one thing to consider when building a pc.

Definitely would consider for budget build.

Just kidding, nice build though.

B360 Mobo?? B means you can't overclock Z means you can. Sort of wasted money there, bro

The_ttv-bird 1 point 4 months ago

especially considering it's a strix board could've picked up a z390 for that price

KaptainKris1 submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Yeah I realised that after buying it xD

The_ttv-bird 2 points 4 months ago

great looking build though, it came out looking really clean!

KaptainKris1 submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Yes, it's just a waste to throw money into b360 when he has great cpu and gpu.

What are the cable Combs that you're using called?

KaptainKris1 submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

I'm not sure, they came with the Cablemod Extension Kit.

Tlee493 1 point 4 months ago

Okay cool thanks. I should be able to find some hopefully!

What software u use to sync up the RGB

KaptainKris1 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

I just downloaded Each of the software for those products, It wasnt the most convenient thing though, As My Ram, Motherboard and Pump are different makes which required different software, But after I set the RGB to how i liked, I dont even know I have the software on my PC.

Hi KaptainKris1 - Do you have any information which cablemod kit you went with?

KaptainKris1 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

If i remember correctly I went all out and bought the CableMod Pro.

If I were to build your PC on a budget do you think I could replace the liquid cooling for just regular?

TurtleBobThe1st 1 point 4 months ago

I don't think a budget PC would have an rtx 2080 or 32gb of ram or an i7 9700k

KaptainKris1 submitter 1 Build 3 points 4 months ago

Yeah it's definately not a budget build. I realised that when I looked at my Bank account afterwards xD

KaptainKris1 submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

You could use air cooling yes, but I would reccomend to buy a good one, This cpu can have quite high temperatures but You could always get the i7-8700k instead.
