  1. @GoodEnough Thank you for the suggestions. I was able to find a 5700XT on sale so swapped that for the 5600XT then went for a single 1TB Inland Professional NVME drive which certainly will make installation easy using only 1 drive. Also picked up the Meshify C as you suggested and it does seem bigger on the inside than the Corsair not sure why. I dropped to an MSI MPG B550 Gaming Plus Motherboard to save a bit. The family that is getting this is not into RGB so I added 3 ML120 fans to keep air flowing. All in all I think they will be happy with this PC.
  2. @eeeee1 Thanks for the input. I will look into a B550 motherboard then. I was thinking the X570 chipset would be better if they wanted to upgrade the processor. As for PSU I have had reasonable luck with my Corsair’s so I thought it may work. @AbydosOne Good suggestions. I always thought it was good to have a boot drive and a separate drive for storage and games. The 32 GB of RAM is only because that is what I have done in the past with my builds, but I like the idea of trading down to get a better GPU if I can find one.

  4. @Frayia Yeah, I have some Cable Mod Custom Cables on the way to help with the lengths on the power cables and should be a little easier to force into areas where the standard ones don't. I have been amazed at the capabilities of the cooling system in this. I came from a build that had a dedicated 480 mm radiator (EKWB XE) for each the GPU and the CPU and the temps were about the same for short spurts of work and gaming. I have tested longer video conversion attempts and the temps do settle in higher by about 5 degrees than the larger build. A few things I have been amazed with i
  5. Needed to free up my Tower 900 Case for a Threadripper build for a workstation. Everything is "Mostly" in the case. System Specs: Asrock Z390 Phantom Gaming ITX/ac 9900K - 5.2Ghz @ 1.305 vCore 32 GB Corsair Dominator RGB @3200Mhz EVGA RTX 2080Ti XC Ultra 2 x 240mm Corsair Thick Radiators Corsair Pump Reservoir Combo Silverstone 800W SFX-L PSU The cable management stinks but I still can't believe it is all there and the clocks and temps are on near where I was getting to in the Tower 900 Case.
  6. @boggy77 Thank you for the input. I contemplated even getting a 2600 to put in but stayed with this instead. The kids are 10 and 13 so I hope they appreciate it.
  7. Over the past year I accumulated a plethora of slightly used, couple year old parts for PCs and I wanted to run the following builds by this community and get their take on what I am putting together.

  8. @goto10 So are you partial to HWMonitor then or something else?
  9. @Alex Atkin UK Unfortunately no it is not reporting any specific core, I have tried watching them one at a time. I typically use the hottest core for OCing, was just surprised by the readings on this. Idle it reads 15C which is about 6C over ambient for my 5.2 Ghz OC on the 9900K @ 1.305 vCore. @goto10 I will have to double check but last I ran HWinfo64 it was showing similar numbers. I should not run them side by side correct?
  10. I was always under the impression that my CPU temperature was based on the hottest core, however AIDA64 is reporting a CPU temperature that is about 5-10 C lower than the hottest core, should I just be using the individual core temps as the temperatures that I monitor or is the overall CPU temperature sufficient? Any direction that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
  11. @Sat1600 I will have to give it a go. We’ll see what happens tomorrow. Crazy enough we are having a garage sale and despite the fact that almost no one would look at something that pricey I will have it out on display.
  12. It is sad to part it out as it works well all together. My daughter keeps asking me to have it but it is a little more PC than a 4 year old needs.
