My new rig Questions

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am planning on buying a new computer in about 4 months and looking for the best buy/ best machine, I want a machine that can last for (let's say) 10 years. But I could replace parts in the future.

This computer is going to be used for (video/ photo) editing and playing World of Tanks (other games? What other games). I record the replays and put them on my own youtube channel (for fun)... 

 

Here are my components:

 

  • Intel Core i9-9900K Processor
  • ASUS Prime Z370-A motherboard
  • Samsung 970 EVO 1Tb M.2 SSD
  • ASUS ROG-STRIX-RTX 2080 Ti Graphics card
  • G.Skill Trident DDR4 32 Gb Memory
  • Seasonic Prime Ultra 1000W Power
  • Corsair H115i Pro RGB liquid cooling
  • Sharkoon TG5 Glass Blue Case
  • Acer Predator X34P monitor

Did I forget anything? (just some thoughts)

  1. I don't need extra HDD because 1Tb is enough (I use some external HDD for storage) or......?
  2. Memory without RGB is cheaper, so I probably will go for that (who needs RGB, right)
  3. Would the Corsair cooling be good enough for the i9-9900K processor?
  4. in the case are 3 120mm fans in the front and 1 120mm fan in the back. Would you replace the fans with Noctua fans? The cooler for the processor is going in the top...
  5. I am used to 3 monitor setup (at this moment I have 3 24" monitors) but want to reduce it to 1 big monitor, or would you use 2 smaller monitors so it is cheaper? (at this moment the Predator coast me €975)
  6. 4K would be great and I guess it can be done here.
  7. I have the LG G413 Carbon keyboard, Razer Deathadder mouse and Edifier R1280T speakers, Behringer U-Phoria UM2 with Behringer mic.

 

I don't want to spend more then needed but want a computer that does the trick for me, money would be around €4000. The setup above is about €4350, so a bit too much but that's why I posted here to see if you guys have better ideas to make it a bit cheaper without losing too much power. I hope that in about 4 months the prices will be dropped 😏

In 4 months 3rd gen Ryzen will be out and we'll see what happens with that. Planning now is pointless.


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1696MHz 0.812V ~ 1860MHz 0.95V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

 

Results: Cinebench R15 Single thread:159 Multi-thread: 770 (thx Meltdown Spectre patch) Super Pi (v1.5 from Techpowerup, PI value output) 16K: 0.11s 1M: 8.4s 32M: 7m 45.9s

true, but I don't want Ryzen... and about the planning. I am looking for a computer, in 4 months it only gets cheaper. I don't see why I should buy a much newer processor because the i9-9900K is the newest so far and when there would be a newer processor (or others things), it would make this one cheaper...

it means bad... a 9900k can pull around 200-280 watts on a good overclock. even for running stock i would get something like a z390 aorus

 

or if you want to stay inside asus a xi gene/apex/extreme

Why wouldn't you want Ryzen? The new generation (comes out in ~2 months) is pretty good for gaming, unlike previous

then ask again in 4 months, this is not something you start planning so ahead of time like that since offerings and new products come up all the time.

Could be, but I just want intel... Don't know why but I just want to. Why change a winning team, if it ain't broken......

The 9900K consumes a lot of power, needs good VRMs, needs extremely good cooling and has no upgradability at all.

Also, Ryzen is the winning team for a lot of places right now, in Mindfactory (a tech store from Germany) it's outselling Intel 2:1.

IF you want your rig to last 10 years, you need to look at AMDs and intels enthusiast sockets like LGA 3647, threadripper, and x299. A mainstream platform is not gonna cut it for the long haul.

 

As an example, there are still people using intels X58 platform that came out 10 years ago for gaming. That is the power of choosing a high end motherboards combined with cheap future upgrades.

At 4.5GHz, the i9-9980XE drew an additional 216W from the wall, putting the total power consumption at around 574W.

The goal for OP is to build a PC that lasts a long time. Unless power is extremely expensive where you live, it makes no sense to upgrade frequently to save on power consumption when most people pay 10-20 cents per kwh.

Jokes aside, yes an enthusiast platform is the best way. I'd go for X399 as it has upgradability to 3rd gen ThreadRipper

how do you cool a 600W CPU is my question

Yeah but you probably need 500mm+

OCing is not required to have a high performance PC. If you dont want your PC to consume 600w, OC less or not at all and use a smaller cooler.

 

In order to get 600w out pf that cpu i believe pcper had to delid the chip anyway.

Just as it's too early to say how good or bad Ryzen will be, 4 months could be too early for you to say you don't want it. If Ryzen comes out cheaper and on par or better than the 9900K would you stick with 9900K for Intel's brand loyalty or pay less for something equivalent or better? Obviously, if Ryzen isn't as good, then don't go for it. But it's too early to say Ryzen will be an Intel 9900K killer just as it's too early to say it won't.

 

So why not buy a newer processor if it's cheaper and better/same? The 9900K is currently about $480 USD+, plus the cost of the MB. AMD boards generally cost less, and even if the processor is $400, it's $80 cheaper plus cost of the MB. Too many variables to say anything about pricing or performance.

 

...That is unless there would be a reason to stick with Intel over AMD if AMD offered something cheaper and competitive. My 2 cents, so I'll shush now.
