Description

After getting into the uni course I wanted, my parents decided to gift me a new computer. I got to choose what i wanted. And as a result, I chose the R9 3900x paired with a 2080 Ti! Reasons why i chose these?

  1. Beast gaming PC
  2. Excellent PC for creative and 3D/CAD (I'm doing industrial design next year, which will involve lots of CAD. This PC would slash rendering times.)

This was also my first ever RGB build. Everyone loves RGB, don't they?

I am also using a vertical GPU bracket from Cooler Master. I'm reusing my peripherals from my old PC. They were:

Mouse: Razer Deathadder Elite Headset: Steelseries Arctis 5

I also picked up a Razer BlackWidow Elite on Black Friday for $179 AUD, saving $40 AUD

Also, I couldn't find my monitor (Which i bought on Black Friday) on partpicker. It's an MSI Optix AG32C which i saved $40 on. 165Hz Freesync curved monitor, G-sync compatible

Part Reviews

CPU

I decided to choose this over the i9-9900K. You get 4 more cores and and extra 8 threads for around the same price. So far I'm loving this CPU. I was able to get it to 4.2GHz manual all-core OC with a voltage of 1.31. I'll be playing around with these values to see if I can go higher

CPU Cooler

It really lives up to it being "be seen, not heard"

Motherboard

I ran into some issues with installing an M.2 in the 1st slot. The heatsink would not screw in properly, so i had to ditch it. The board runs a little warm, but overall a good board by MSI.

Memory

I bought two 16gb kits as i wanted to use all of my 4 RAM slots. These sticks look amazing and work with Mystic Light too!

Storage

I pulled this from my old PC. I think its starting to reach its write limit as its starting to get a little bit slow, but it still works. I'll be using this for extra storage

Storage

Boots to Windows in less that 20 seconds

Storage

Will be using this as my Games & Programs storage drive. I bought this on Black Friday saving $20AUD. No problems so far.

Video Card

What can I say about this beast? it's awesome! I have this vertically mounted via a Cooler Master Vertical GPU Mount. I got it to 2070Mhz Core Clock according to Timespy.

Case

I was lucky to get this early. It's an awesome case! So modular, and the front RGB strips are spectacular!. The only gripes I have about this is it says that there is a USB-C port, but on the case there is none, and that one of the magnetic panels won't close fully. Other than that, 5 stars! The front RGB strips can be controlled via your motherboard's software. Do note that the connector for it is a male connector.

Case Fan

Looks cool, stays cool. stays super quiet. If you're wondering how quiet these claim to be, you're right! They are!

Nice build. Lian Li have attachments that you can buy like usb c and put that into the empty hole on your case io. Also I want that case, how did you get it early

Nice build! I am also looking to build a new system and I am considering using the same Lian-Li case. Not sure if I want the Black or White one though. The USB-C is sold separately. Newegg has them on their site. It's Item#: 9SIAFSTA648579 and it is $11.99. For the same price there is also a diffused aRGB strip specially made for the Lancool II that they also carry (Item#: 9SIAFSTA649560). There is also a Hot-swap kit for the drive bay (Item#: 9SIAFSTA649745). I guess they didn't include those things to keep the cost at $90.

Good to know info, thanks for sharing. I bought one of these cases on the release day from Amazon, went with the black as I have some carbon fiber vinyl wrap that will go nicely with it.

I think this pc looks great. I think the lancool II is an excellent case. I really want it but the dang thing won’t come back on preorder. The black version was only on preorder for a day so you are lucky.

This Build is so clean , i'm looking for every excuse to build in the lancool ll. If your going for an all core clock you should be able to get another 200 mhz without making to many changes to your current voltage. i have got mine up to 4.4ghz @ 1.28 , so you can pull it off . + 1

For some reason I can't get mine above 4.2, any higher gives OCCT errors... any help here?

That's strange you should at the very least be able to get 4.3ghz. Im at work so i cant see my current values so i'll update you on that when i get back. Silly question but did you update the bios to its current release? Idle temp of 45 seems a little warmer than it should be

I figured out what was causing it, I had to plug in the extra 4 pin power connector

Looks fantastic ! Noticed you are using the Coolermaster vertical gpu mount. Did you have to mod the case for this ? Do you think that there is enough space under the gpu mount to add 2 more fans as intakes?

Are you happy with the thermals in the case or is it toasty?

  • 4 months ago

I didn’t have to do any modding. I could only squeeze one intake fan underneath, but I reckon if you have slim fans (15mm) such as Noctua’s ones, you can fit them underneath. Thermals are fair

What did you do with the 3 pin cable coming from the front RGB?

  • 4 months ago
  • 1 point

I used the A-RGB adapter that came with the motherboard for Corsair, connected that female connector to the 3 pin, it converted it to a Corsair 3 pin which i plugged into the J_CORSAIR header on my motherboard. It's very complicated

Is that adapter and Corsair header typically included in most motherboards or just the MSI? Had my heart set on a Gigabyte x570 Elite because of the price, but I will switch to your motherboard if necessary. I work two jobs and money is definitely an issue. Thanks for you help and your build is very impressive.

Hi, do you use Fusion 360?, have you tested on Fusion 360 render?. How fast is it?.
