Thanks, I'll take a look at that (any suggestions on good methods for that?)

I was looking at the MSI Gaming X Trio RTX 2070 super (I ended up going with the 2080 version). Take a look at that one (note: it's very long - be sure it will fit!).

I have an MSI MEG X570 Ace, very happy with it.

I'd look for a good price on the graphics card (or equivalent), and maybe go with a smaller SSD instead of the HDD for around the same price, but in answer to your question, yes, I think it is (especially since you are including that monitor in the cost).

Since you are going with a 3000 series CPU, I'd go for the X570 MB, especially if you intend on keeping the PC for a while and upgrading it over time.

Not a good idea to split the power. For the fans you can't plug into the MB, plug them into the PSU with a molex adapter. The only issue would be that the fans connected to the PSU would be at full speed all the time (no speed control) but that isn't a big deal (unless they are really noisy :) Here is something like what you need: https://www.newegg.com/p/2RM-001U-00003?item=9SIAAXT6RN2720&source=region&nm_mc=knc-googlemkp-pc&cm_mmc=knc-googlemkp-pc-_-pla-koolertek-_-heatspreaders+%2f+heatsinks-_-9SIAAXT6RN2720&gclid=CjwKCAjwqNnqBRATEiwAkHm2BCmdCFEN3GYurhtfOut7zdlNU7wy-k4K7aCwjUhqjFxEY6IXP4eb6hoCSYEQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

I got mine directly from AMD (got on their email list to be notified when it came back in stock). They got it before any retailers did (no surprise).

Personally, I'd go with the ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Twin Fan 8GB. It has better cooling (quieter) than any of the blower type models you listed and performance should be good.

I used the Corsair Crystal 570X RGB ATX Mid Tower Case in my build: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/Bs3bt6 and overall it worked very well, but I couldn't fit a large two fan AIO at the top due to the large X570 MB I used. With an X470 you shouldn't have that problem though.

This. He will need that GPU if he wants 144hz.

Also, double check the outlet itself. Plug something else in and see if it works.

You might need to bump the PSU up to ~650w with a bigger graphics card (check the power requirements of the card you get before getting the PSU). You will need a good card to run at 120. Check for game tests with differing cards at various resolutions and frame rates (many You Tube videos on that). Good Luck!

Yes, this version should work perfectly for him. Nice build.

I'd spend a bit more and bump the graphics card up to an RTX 2060 8GB. That will make a difference in performance for games.

This thing is a work of art. What are your temps like with all those lights, etc. and the 95w CPU?

Be sure all your drivers are updated, that can cause symptoms like the ones you describe.

The better CPU cooler will help significantly. There are even better ones than the CM 212, but they are large (like the scythe mugen 5 or Noctua NH-U12S). How are you on space?

Power shouldn't be your problem here. Your parts list shows a Cooler Master 212, that should be sufficient for your CPU. Be sure to install that, and be sure it's done properly (there are several videos on YouTube for that). Also, how many case fans to you have total? I only saw one on your list and I don't think your case comes with any. You need more than one case fan.

Yes, definitely. Look at the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 or for a little more the 2070 SUPER. Those would provide a significant upgrade.

So, the Scythe Mugen 5 has a similar design to the Deepcool GAMMAXX GT, but has even better performance (just no fancy RGB :). Thanks!

Comment reply on Forum Topic "X570 MEG ACE or Aorus Master"

I looked at both as well and decided on the MSI Meg Ace X750. It was a tough call (the boards are very similar and are both outstanding). I'd look at the ports/connectors they have (there are some differences) and pick the one that best suits your individual needs. The MSI Meg Ace did so for me.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Air Flow Question"

Follow up question - the case comes with an air filter (dust screen) for the top as well as the front (for various configurations). Since the top will be an exhaust, should it have the top dust filter on or would it just get in the way / maybe melt, etc. and should be left off? Thanks!

Just be sure it's compatible with your CPU (right socket, etc.).

Thanks for the advice, I was thinking that just one exhaust fan wouldn't be enough. Do most people have their AIO fans exhaust as opposed to intake air?

So, you recommend going for the Corsair Liquid CPU Cooler over the Wraith Max CPU Cooler you get with the CPU?
