Apex PC build, Input Appreciated

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I’m replacing a 9 year old gaming rig that used to be top of the line but is showing its age nowadays. Looking for build critique or possibly recommendations based on others experience. Any input is appreciated:)


CPU- i9-9900k

MB- Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master

Gpu- Aorus 2080 ti waterforce vs Evga 2080 ti Hydrocopper

Ram- 32gb GeForce trident z royal 3200

Mem- 2x Intel 660p 2gig M.2 Nvme

Pow Sup- Tt 1050 watt 80+ platinum

Case- Tt core P5 titanium 

Cooling- My biggest concern, Tt Pacific c360 kit vs Ekwb kit p360

Monitor- Samsung 4K Quantum dot version Q9 full array Led Tv


It'll be my first time making a watercooled loop, I’m fairly meticulous so I think I can handle pteg hard tubing, but is everything compatible metals wise? Or any tips for first time hard-tube builds. I plan on getting an extra set of 90s and a drain valve to add to the kit. 

Another concern is whether a 360 rad will handle a 2080ti aaand a i9-9900k?

Thanks for any input y'all! links to amazon below :)

Question: Is there a specific reason you chose the 9900k? 

The 3900X has almost identical gaming performance and is much better at productivity.
