Let's Get Down To Business! To Build, Some Stuff! (9900K and 2080 TI Build)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Righto, there isn't too much to say about this build, other than that I plan to be gaming at 1440, 165hz, and want really cool temps on as many parts as possible. Preferably, I would like the build to stay within $4,500 USD (the lower the better, of course), and to just be filled with rainbow barf. I plan on heavy gaming, as well as programming, Solidworks rendering, and everyday use, of course. Currently, this is what I have outlined on PCPartPicker. I'll be using the intel optane to speed up my 2 tb hard drive, and, if I thought it wouldn't make too much difference to thermals and noise, I would swap out the black Noctuas on the cooler for the Corsair LL120 RGB's as well. So, feel free to throw any advice you have at me, and I'll make changes accordingly!

Good enough mobo for ocing, better storage options, 2080 Ti, your psu was overkill, monitor change, better keyboard at that price point, mouse is good and cheaper, and left you enough room to do custom liquid cooling to drop the temp.

650 is still cutting it a bit close with a 2080Ti and 9900k.

Just checked, in real usage the 2080Ti takes around 280w, the 9900k takes 170. 650 is probably fine stock, but I would go for a 750-850 if overclocking.

then i would suggest waiting for Zen 2 at computex. also just grab a 144hz or 155hz monitor. no point running for 165hz.

gaming at 1440p don't need 9900k, for productivity I suggest you save money and get a CPU that has near identical 1440p gaming performance with more workstation UMPH, 1920x w/open box aorus x399 gaming 7 is under $600 total, the one I got has full 3 year warranty with registration. Also it shits rainbows.

 

take that $60 saving scratch the optane and 2tb HDD and you're at $180 which is $20 away from a 2TB SSD, and you will have more than enough PCIE lanes now to run it as well and space for another m.2 device. Not to mention you have the option to upgrade up to a 32 core processor which will only get cheaper as time goes on vs intel releasing a new 1151 socket that isn't compatible with any other series chips as usual, so dead end for upgrading your CPU without changing socket. Makes a bit more sense for 12core+ with that AIO cooler too...

 

 

Also I can confirm you can save about $130 buying an OEM windows CD key online from ebay for less than $5, if you are dead set on spending that money and since you a loyal follow or BEST BRAND AORUS you can buy 2x of their RGB memory it's $170 for 2x8GB @ 3200MHZ and comes with 2 demo sticks in the pack so you essentially get the same think as your corsair kit + dummy sticks at a little premium...

 

 

FYI Aorus xtreme is same as regular Aorus 2080 ti except the backplate, like 90mhz core boost which can be changed anyway, and it comes with a GPU stand, I got mine for $1,020 on amazon.com, after tax-the 5% I get back it was less than $1.030 and still has over 3 years of warranty service on it. 

 

all the other shit I would suggest is personal preference but somehow I was able to build a comparable system for $2.5k +2 good 1440p monitors for ~$500 and BEST razer gear +$100


Literally just buy a 1920x is best CPU

I'd prefer to stay away from that sketchy-looking AIO, as well as Gigabyte and Zotac in general. Never had good experiences with them. I like to stick to Asus and Corsair, for their reliability and just overall quality. I do want rainbow barf, but good-looking rainbow barf, and preferably with as few product families as possible.

Asus boards are overpriced, the Gigabyte Aorus Pro is one of the higher-end boards for the Z390 chipset.

The CM AIO is actually pretty good, but swap in the NZXT Kraken X62 rev2 if you want.

And Zotac make good cards, again there is the Asus tax at play here (they are milking ROG for all it's worth).

 

I'm fine with Corsair as their prices are still pretty reasonable for most part, I'm so not with Asus who seem more concerned with milking the ROG line as hard as they can.

I've been looking into other CPU's (namely Ryzen and Threadripper) to replace my 9900K, and I've actually been leaning towards the Threadripper 2920X or 2950X (for those sweet sweet cores, although, they won't be performing as well as the 9900K in games). As far as Gigabyte in general, sorry to do this to you, but f&$#k Gigabyte and Zotac (looking at the other answers here as well). I have had some personally awful experiences with them, they're tacky, cheap products, and just not what I'm looking for in general. I prefer the look of Corsair memory above all else. However, the Aorus mobo's, I've been getting a ton of reccomendations to get that over the Maximus XI Hero, so I might check that out. All in all, thanks for the help!

Well, as you say that, I just remembered, I am thinking of stripping the card, and using a Kraken G12 with a 360 AIO to liquid cool it. So perhaps the shroud doesn't really matter, so long as I get a good chip. Thanks for the help!

cool, aorus is BAE, btw the amount of performance difference in games you will see in any 8 core SMT ryzen vs 9900K is going to be sub 5% in a small selection of select games, i recommend 1920x because it is by far the cheapest for the money and offers atleast 90% of the performance of even the 2nd gen 2920x


Literally just buy a 1920x is best CPU

just checked cinebench r15 benchmarks 1920x vs 2920x they are like 5% difference if anything I would get the 1950x if you can spend more as it's available for $480 on ebay and for the reason if you need to enter "gaming mode" you will have access to 8cores/16threads as opposed to 6/12 on the 1920x and it's price is well worth it vs the 2920x and the 2950x
