  1. would a single 280 be enough for just the CPU?
  2. This is my first custom water cooling build, i want it to be matte black with yellow highlights in the coolant and sleeved cables. Is there anything im missing? I would also like to water cool the GPU but im not sure where to start and i wouldn't like to add to overall price - there is a cheaper 2070 super the GALAX GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER 1-Click OC 8GB Video Card which takes about AU$150 off the total price but with the price of the GPU block i'm not sure if its worth it - some advice on this would be greatly appreciated Anyone got any tips, especially as id like it to be hard tubing, ? It would be especially helpful if anyone was to give me a cheaper altenative with the custom watercooling products that still involved hard line tubing too An any general feedback would be greatly appreciated. Case - NZXT h510 MOBO - Asus Strix ROG B450-f CPU - Ryzen 5 3600X Memory - Hyper X predator RGB 16GB (2 X 8GB) 3200mhz GPU - Gigabyte Geforce RTX 2070 Super OC PSU - Silverstone ET700-MG Gold Modular Storage - Samsung 860 QVO 1TB\ Front case fans - Corsair air series af140 , Id like these to be mounted in the front of the case in front of the radiator so that you can't see them, is this possible? Cable kit - Tmod Yellow/Black sleeved extension kit Watercooling components Resevoir - EKWB EK-RES X3 150 Reservoir CPU Block - EKWB EK-Velocity CPU Waterblock for AMD Sockets - Copper + Acetal Pump - EKWB EK-XTOP Revo D5 RGB PWM - Sleeved Cable Plexi Top and Pump Tubing - EKWB EK-HD PETG Tube 10/12mm 1000mm - 2 Pieces Fittings - ek-HTC Classic 12mm - black x 11 Radiator - EK coolstream SE280 Splitter - EK-AF T-splitter 3F G/14 - black Coolant - EKWB EK Cryofuel Solid laguna Yellow 1L ( i know the res and pump would be cheaper in a combination but i'd like a rather large resevoir to add the colour and kind of show off the coolant and to my knowledge the case can only have a 150mm tall resevoir. My heart is also set on this case as i love the matte black finish, but if there is another case similiar that would make the building process simpler or cheaper im open for suggestions. <3)
  3. Thanks so much for the help, this is actually really great for me because its my first build. is the motherboard u have proposed out of the box ready for ryzen 3000 series? and the monitor was a mistake i would be buying the 1440p version it just isn't in stock at the moment so i added that one to the cart aws a price reference for myself.
  4. also side note, i might do some light overclocking - is it worth it to spend that extra money on an aftermarket cooler instead of using AMD's stock cooler?
  5. In the process fo building my first gaming pc and i want to pair a ryzen 3700X with the Asus ROG STRIX B450-F Gaming Motherboard. The only issue is on the ROG website it says that it is 3000 series ready however on MWave (i live in Aus) it says it is only 2000 series ready. I knnow that Asus offer the USB bios flash feature without needing to install a CPU, does this board have that and if so will i need anything other than a USB? I know that AMD can sometimes send you a second processor so that you can update the boards but i live in Australia and if i remember correctly i don't think they are doing this anymore. Hoping i could get some help. Unrelated but ive attatched an image of what im planning to buy, if anyone notices any compatability issues that i haven't id appreciate that :D
