You're cheaping out in the wrong places, Motherboard and PSU. 

 

Get a Z390 motherboard and much better PSU. I recommend you read the Motherboard and PSU tier lists, and pick the absolute best things you can afford. You can certainly afford to drop to 2666 or 3000MHz RAM. Intel CPU's really don't respond much to RAM above that. 240GB storage is also really low. 1TB SSD's are quite cheap now a days.

Brands I wholeheartedly reccomend (though do have flawed products): Apple, Razer, Corsair, Asus, Gigabyte, bequiet!, Noctua, CoolerMaster, GSkill (RAM only)

Arn't K's clocks higher ?

yes by .2 GHZ  that defiantly worth paying the additional $70.00  NOT  the reason you get a K skew is to overclock it

Not everyone wants to bother with OCing or voiding there warranty but still need/want the extra 600mhz. (not 200mhz)

the 9700k Is a 4.9GHZ and the 9700 is a 4.7GHZ(Turbo)   and if thats the argument then why not go with a 9900K at 5Ghz

Turbo dose not work that way. It does not lock in at full trubo on all cores 24/7. Its 3ghz vs 3.6ghz. 

But yea a i9 would be a better pick then if the extra 80-90 or so dollars is not a problem.

exactly my point 9700 vs 9700K  is a $70.00 difference why would you pay the extra money for possibility the same performance depending on Turbo its pointless.

I think you meant 2MHz. Ah strike that, I missed the decimal point 0.2 GHz.

There are a number of issues with the build. Most important, the cpu cooler and case are incompatible.

 

With an unlocked (K) processor you should be looking at using a Z390 or Z370 motherboard. The high end unlocked Coffee Lake i7 and i9 really need good VRM (power delivery circuitry) and excellent VRM cooling. With less capable VRM of a B360 motherboard there is a very good chance of thermal throttling occurring as load increases. 

 

If budget is an issue you might consider going with a locked i7-9700, if you can find one. This cpu is rated for a stock TDP of 65W so it should be a little less demanding.

 

The NH-D15 is 165mm tall. The Spec-05 case has a 150mm cpu cooler height limit. You will either have to change to a shorter cooler or a case that accommodates taller coolers.

 

Using RGB memory modules and large tower coolers doesn't make much sense to me as the coolers generally overhang all or part of the memory area, blocking the lighting from view.

 

HyperX Predator RGB memory modules are > 42 mm tall. Which is less than optimal combined with the NH-D15 as the cooler fan overhangs the outer two memory slots. For a two memory module setup it's not a problem. But it will become so if a memory upgrade is desired.


80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.
