We would get the 3000 processor after it releases, that's when the build process would start. And yes we are planning on buying all the parts from Microcenter.
Oh my bad, here: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/
I ended up changing the CPU and graphics card and removed the Kraken. This is what I came up with: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/
Wow, that's a lot of information! Thanks for the help!
Alright, thanks for the suggestions dude!
Yeah, he already has a gaming monitor, thanks for the list!
I'll look into it, thanks!
I'd pay to see your reaction if the motherboard and graphics card had broken lol. Solid build, 11/10 dude.
Cool build/setup, except the monitors, which are a little slow on the refresh rate.
You could've gotten a better CPU if you had used ram which was less expensive. The case really doesn't need to have a glass for you to see inside. If you plan on upgrading in the future then disregard this.
Nice and simple, just how I like it.
Delided CPU on an air cooler, absolute mad lad.
Sick build, I'd suggest removing the sticker from the glass because after a few days they start to look really bad.
It's got RGB, clean cable management, and insane performance. What more could you ask for?
That is the cleanest cable management I have ever seen on a mini-ITX build, ever. Well done sir!
That's the biggest GTX 980 I've ever seen in my life lol.
Sick build! Hope your friend enjoys it!
Solid build, however, I'd suggest routing the GPU cables towards the cutout at the bottom of the case just so that there isn't a ball of cables under your graphics card. However, this is just a personal preference.
That is a clean black and red build, nicely done!
Good build, maybe get some custom sleeved cables in the future or a GPU backplate. However, this build is really good as it sits. Also, love how in depth your pictures were!
Case fans = intake
Radiator fans = outtake
If your case fans are in a pull configuration and your radiator fans are in a push configuration this allows for a steady intake/outtake of air. The radiator fans will be exhausting the heat from your CPU while the case fans will bring in cold air. I'll see if I can find the build of another person who had this same occurrence.
Kraken all the way
I'd suggest a Kraken series AIO for this build. Terrific job!
Solid 10/10 build, however, I would change the orientation of the radiator fans to improve CPU cooling.
The only thing to suggest is to flip the orientation for the radiator fans. Solid build though!
I think that in the future, you should move the parts into a case with more airflow and radiator compatibility. But, if there's no issue with thermals and you are happy with the way the build turned out then disregard this. However, I would change the orientation of your radiator so that they are in a push configuration. Solid build overall!
This is an excellent display of attention to detail, well done!
Is there no other way to route the wire connected to the drain? Still an amazing build though!
I would move the GPU to the top GPU slot for better performance. Overall this build is very nice!
Very clean build and setup! I'd look into some sleeved cables or even a GPU backplate.
Ah, I see.
750 watts seems a bit overkill, no?
Do you need a BIOS update for the motherboard when you're using an 8th generation CPU on a Z390? Or is that only for when you're using a 9th generation CPU on a Z370?
Aren't there restrictions on the lanes for the PCI-E though (when going for an H370)?
Gotta love the look of an inverted build, nicely done!
Amazing build, especially for a first timer!
Oh ok my bad, I haven't really been looking into RTX cards because, in my opinion, they're kinda useless at the moment. Either way, Mitlar could've said that in a nicer way rather than just being arrogant and rude so that's why I responded in that way.
Cool build, I would suggest tidying up those cables to make the PC look a little better.
Ok buddy, whatever you say.
A 9900k paired with an RTX 2060 may create some large bottlenecks, however, this is a very well put together build! Nicely done.
For the future, I'd suggest a bigger power supply. This allows you to have an easier time upgrading/overclocking because you won't be restricted on power.
Solid build! The only thing to suggest is peeling off that sticker on the glass.
Yes, this method is a lot better than a pull configuration because it allows for a steady intake/outtake of hot and cold air. The case fans are pulling cold air from the outside and the radiator fans are taking the heat from the CPU and exhausting it. This keeps the CPU temperatures low. There is another post where I suggested this to another user and his temperature dropped significantly. You are correct when saying that it is easier to clean the radiator when it is in pull. If you would like to trade better temperatures for easy management then by all means do so, but if that inst what you want then it is better to keep the fans in push.
You should have two intake case fans with your radiator fans in a push configuration.
I/d change the way you routed the graphics card cables so that you don't get in the way of the fan (probably won't make a difference but couldn't hurt right?) I'd also change the fan orientation for your radiator so that they are pushing out. Solid build you have there though!
