The new Ryzen 3000 CPUs have me really excited, so much so that I am planning to finally get a new build. CPUs in the last decade or so really haven't been exciting, which is why I put off upgrading for so long, but I think it's now time
I am planning to spend $4k-$5k including a new 1440p Gsync monitor and keyboard. I wouldn't mind going over that budget if needed. This PC will be used for 60% gaming and streaming, 20% dev work, 20% video editing
I am trying to do grey / white / black themed build. Below is a parts preliminary parts list that I am planning to get when the new CPUs drop
AMD Ryzen 9 3900X
Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master
Gigabyte Aorus GeForce RTX 2080Ti Xtreme
Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 4000MHz
Or CORSAIR Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 3466
Dummy RAM kits
Gigabyte PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD (1TB)
Corsair AX1000 Titanium
Phantek Evolve X w/ vertical GPU mount
360mm AIO from Corsair / NZXT / Thermaltake / Deepcool Anti-leak (X?) new gen
Cablemod custom sleeved cables (Paracord)
Lenovo Y27-GQ monitor (not released yet)
Or Asus PG279QZ
You can see I have multiple options for some parts, like the cooler and RAM. Some parts like the SSD and the Deepcool anti-leak CPU cooler were just announced at Computex, so depending on the reviews when they come out, those might change
I have a few questions at this point, that I need the community's assistance with
The Gigabyte Aorus Master will have a daisy chain memory configuration. That would mean it will work best with 2 DIMMs for the best memory overclock. I am planning to get dummy RAM sticks to fill the other two, until I need 64GB. Would filling the other two memory slots with dummy sticks affect memory overclocking in a daisy chain configuration?
Does Cablemod have white connectors for their cables? In the configurator, I see black connectors by default. Any way that can be changed?
Will the default cable lengths for the AX1000 from the cablemod configurator be fine for the Phantek Evolve X case?
Is there a white Dominator Platinum RGB kit?
I am also taking suggestions to improve on the build above, so please give me if you have any. Also, feel free to ask me any questions regarding my choices in the parts.
