Build thoughts?

PCPartPicker Part List

CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8 GHz 12-Core Processor  ($418.89 @ B&H) 
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i RGB PLATINUM SE 63 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler  ($155.99 @ Newegg) 
Motherboard: Asus PRIME X570-P ATX AM4 Motherboard  ($147.00 @ B&H)

Add some nice custom cables, rgb fans, etc, and you'd have pretty sweet system. Video Card is totally subjective BTW. Chose that one cause its white :/

The RAM sticks should be available as 4x 8gb as well, but pc partpicker could only find stock of 2x16gb

 

so, black & white board, white rgb ram, white aio cooler & white GPU. Should look pretty fancy :) needs some white cables.

1. Budget & Location

$1500 US dollars 

2. Aim

for  gaming such as battlefield V, minecraft, far cry, risk of rain 2, borderlands 3, and call of duty. I am also an engineering student and use my pc occasionally for some 3d modeling already using programs such as autocad and solidworks. I also do some photo and filming editing time to time but rarely. I like my RGB because more RGB=better performance(jk), but dont really care for it on the graphics card. I currently have a corsair RMx 850 watt white power supply. I have a corsair 500d case and plenty of case fans. the picture attached is my current Idea of a build. Im trying to go with a black and white aesthetic. Kind of just looking for thoughts and opinions on it. 

3. Monitors

one monitor already have one

4. Peripherals

have all peripherals 

5. Why are you upgrading?

completely abandoning console gaming. Looking for something to last me awhile and be able to do all of what is being asked without a hitch. any questions just ask.

Looks pretty good overall. You could try for a AIO cooler if you prefer that route otherwise it looks like you have all the options covered. As long as you have all your storage devices and Windows license as well. Solid build

CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8 GHz 12-Core Processor  ($418.89 @ B&H) - No reason to go Intel in 2020. This offers much faster performance for the same price
Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 GAMING X ATX AM4 Motherboard  ($154.00 @ B&H) - Good X570 motherboard that you can OC with (yes, you can OC with the stock cooler but you could always buy an NH-u12S if that is your concern)
Memory: G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory  ($92.99 @ Newegg) - 4*8 looks way cooler than 2*16
Memory: G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory  ($92.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Crucial P1 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive  ($109.99 @ B&H) - If you already have an SSD and HDD, substitute this for an AIO. Otherwise, it's a great drive
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 8 GB Video Card  ($699.99 @ Best Buy) - fast boi
Total: $1568.85

Looks good for the mot part. Consider the RX 5700XT if you are looking to save a few $$$, very nearly the performance equal of the 2070S and a LOT less.

https://pcpartpicker.com/products/video-card/#c=447,444&sort=price&page=1

 

For RAM I'd get a CL16 kit. This will be better and lower latency.

Consider these white air coolers as well maybe? If white is what you are going for. The NH-U15 is nothing special TBH it's not going to be much different than the following options. Noctuas large air coolers rain supreme though.

Follow @orbitalbuzzsaw's instructions, waaay better than your build, but if you insist on intel, at least get a k man.

AMD Ryzen Zen2 will probably be a better fit of you are going to be 3d modeling.

Do you have an existing ssd/HDD?

 

Is there a reason for going 4x8gb rather than 2x16gb other than aesthetics?

Yes I do currently have an crucial ssd that I did forget to mention and yeah there is no real reason besides for aesthetics and the 3600 clock speed

Add some nice custom cables, rgb fans, etc, and you'd have pretty sweet system. Video Card is totally subjective BTW. Chose that one cause its white :/

The RAM sticks should be available as 4x 8gb as well, but pc partpicker could only find stock of 2x16gb

 

so, black & white board, white rgb ram, white aio cooler & white GPU. Should look pretty fancy :) needs some white cables.

i'd go with 3700x and 2080 super, but otherwise solid build

Yep, for me probably too, but its dealers choice:

3700x & 2080 Super = Gaming Build

3900x & 2070 Super = Productivity Build

I could go 3900x and 2080 super plus I dont plan on doing water cooling cause although offering better performance for a short loads you lose the benefits for extended loads which is why I went for a noctua 12us (or whatever its called). Plus the 3900x comes with a decent cooler already which I could use for a short period of time till I could get a better one.

if mostly for gaming on only rarely editing, you probably won't see the benefit of the 3900x. as for a cooler, I'd recommend the noctua nh-d15s

Depends on how much Solidworks you will be doing. The 3900x will definitely be better if you are going to be doing a lot of CAD rendering. If you only do it rarely, i'd save the money and get a 3700x.

 

For the 3900x one should consider aftermarket coolers if you are looking at overclocking or sustained loads for rendering and video encoding. I'm not sure why you think watercooling is worse for sustained loads, but a decent aircooler like the Noctua nh-d15 chromax black or Darkrock Pro 4 will probably be about the same 240 aio. If going Noctua, also look at some white Chromax accessories for the Chromax black cooler.
