New Mini PC build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Took some inspiration to one of the latest LTT videos with the NZXT H1 

 

I've just thrown together a PC and would like to share with everyone before I pull the trigger and make a mistake! 

 

Case - NZXT H1 

CPU - Intel Core i7 - 9700k 

Motherboard - ROG Strix Z390-I Gaming

RAM - Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB 

GPU - ASUS ROG Strix Geforce RTX 2080

 

Would like to know if this is all compatible and/or other suggestions to make it cheaper? 

 

Thanks!

If you save money with Ryzen, you can probably afford a 2080 super


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

What’re you wanting to use the PC for specifically? Gaming, content creation, video stuff/audio stuff for work? Awesome stuff so far though 😍

It'll be the Gaming PC, I'll be using my current PC as a streaming/recording PC.

The Ryzen 5 3600 is a strong contender, with a 6/12 configuration like the 8700K.

Done a bit of digging, this is what ive come up with. Thoughts?

 

Case - NZXT H1

Motherboard - ASUS ROG Strix B450-I Gaming

CPU - AMD Ryzen 7 3700x 

RAM - Corsair Vengance LPX 16gb 

GPU - ASUS ROG Strix RTX 2080 Super

 

All up its an extra $250NZD ($150USD) from previous system but I can deal with that.
