First PC build (gaming)

Recommended Posts

Top mounted AIO with intake fans, with 2 front intake, and 1 exhaust is what i like doing. You honestly dont need 60$ worth of fans, as all slots are filled when you use your AIO.

 

Since you cant fit it on top, just do front intake and top intake, and rear exhaust.

what do you think?

 

One of my problems is wether I go for a 240(top)/280(front)/360(front) AIO in the front (intake) or top (exhaust). My idea is to keep the temps as cool as possible, for my gpu and cpu. 

 

Thanks for helping :)

Your first build is a high end build? Kind of unusual. Do you know if you'll be using it to it's fullest potential? Also why do you need 7 fans?

Are you sure you want to go with that motherboard? according to the stats given on partpicker it only supports memory up too 2,666 ghz

the Asrock @LukeSavenije recommends can go up to 4 ghz 

ah but your cpu the 9700k asks for 2666 memory too so ...

yeah, it's inaccurate

 

the elite is a pretty good, but vrmwise they are similar, so i chose the extreme4 because it's cheaper

 

all z390 aorus "technically" can go up to around 4 ghz

 

the newer (coffeelake+) chips do have some advantage on higher speed ram tho

Even for the 9900k it is 2666.. that surprised me! My recommendation based on experiences with games, software and a lousy tech grade ( as in 1+1 = 2 i'm cool but efficiency variables and hardware needs when going out of bounds = not oke ) would be to be the best loyal intel customer you can be ;) not to mention warranties and who know what else

shocks in 3600 mhz

 

it's with a 3200 mhz kit, so nothing to worry about. i would still suggest 3000+ mhz as the price difference isn't big enough to justify not spending it

I like your build, but since this is OP's first build, wouldn't it be better to recommend an AIO, the Dark Rock Pro 4 is a pretty beefy cooler and might be hard to install? I would always recommend an air cooler over a water cooler. @LukeSavenije

from what I've seen it isn't harder to install a air cooler than a aio, and because the drp4 is this much cheaper, i would recommend it over a aio. but I'm not really a aio person.

 

it's a asetek tho, so it is good (asetek makes aios for corsair, nzxt and many more)

I formulated myself badly in my last post, not that it is harder to install, it might be harder to access the CPU 8-pin and sometimes ram clearance might be limited as well.

it requires a little more research, that's true

 

but in the end it's op's choice, not mine, not yours
