  1. nope, when running stock the cpu gets more voltage than it needs, if you keep the same clock speed the performance will be the same, but the power consumption lower. Power consumption is determined by 3 factors, Voltage, Temperature and clock speed
  2. Yes, I'm running custom water cooling, It can really help with overclocking, I have an i5 8600k and I got it to 5.3 GHz, the 240 mm rad I have would have been enough if I had delidded the CPU. In my opinion a 120mm cooler can handle a 9900k, not well but it can. Undervolting can help with temperatures (it's like overclocking, but instead of getting higher clock speeds you get lower temperatures on the cpu). In gaming the cpu doesn't get really hot, if in prime95 (a well known stress testing tool) the cpu reaches 96c in gaming it generally won't go over the high 60s mid 70s, hell, for a wile i ran my cpu at 4.8 GHz on a 92mm air cooler
  3. Nope, the NH-D15 is 165mm, it's huge, infact the fan only is 150 mm, you could just buy a bigger AIO, the price is the same and it would be supported by your case
  4. It doesn't have any wifi capabilities, those holes are there in case you wanted to install an m.2 pcie card
  5. Yeah but he can't rebuild the system in a new case, he could not have the knowledge to do that nor the time to learn to do so, and it will be quite expensive ($300), would jus t change the cooler
  6. It really depends, only really big air coolers can handle a 9900k, the Noctua NH D15 is one of them, but these are quite clunky and could not fit in your case
  7. unfortunately you cannot change the radiator of an AIO, you would need custom water cooling and it can get pricey really fast changing cooler is quite easy the mounting system will vary slightly form brand to brand
  8. Intel TDP specs are accurate when the CPU is not in turbo, but most of the time it will not be... (on certain motherboards at least) so in short loads the cpu will exceed the TDP amount by a lot
  9. A 240mm radiator supports 2x 120mm fans, a 360mm instead 3x 120mm and a 280 will support 2x 140mm. The cpu you have is basically the best available for Z390 and overall the LGA 1151 socket, unfortunatley to go for the 10900k you would need a Z490 board, it's easy to do but a motherboard will cost about $ 200
  10. yeah, it will not thermal throttle but it will burn like in hell, undervolting could help, but a 240mm or a 280 would be a really needed upgrade
  11. Corsair H110 is one of the best, does your case support 280mm radiators?
  12. Well, form the upgradeability standpoint, you can upgrade literally anything, the GPU is easy yo change, but if you want a new CPU you will need to swap motherboard. The system has no bottlenecks, the cpu is the third best for gaming (after 10900k and 9900ks) and the GPU is almost the best (RTX Titan and Quadro RTX 8000 are in thory better) This system should not need a CPU upgrade for about 5 years, for me at least. The GPU, well depends, last year I used an HD 5870 and it could keep 70 FPS in most games at minimum settings. If you want to play at ultra the 2080ti sould last 4 years, maybe? You computer sould be cooled quite well by that AIO if you don't overclock and your room temperatures are low, a 240 would be better
  13. Nah, it's normal, atm my ram usage is at 4.2 GB, it depends on what is running in the background and your total amount of ram, but 4 GB is pretty normal for 16 GB
