    Have you plugged the fan on your NH-D15 in the CPU_FAN header on the motherboard?

    Go into the fan control tab in the BIOS (it'll probably be called something like Fan Xpert 4), and set your fans to PWM control. Then you should be able to do custom fan curves either in there, or in Windows through AI Suite.

    Thanks for the tip.

    I accidentally I connected the 140mm fan to the AiO water-cooling set header. I moved it to the secondary optional cpu header and it's perfect now. Multumesc Mateyyy.

     

    One more month until my GPU!

    looks good. given the prices of the d14 and d15, i would go with the d14. there is almost no difference in performance between them.

    Keeping the 10600K and RTX 3070:

    But you could obviously go higher-end with the budget.

    If you want an even beefier motherboard (which you won't really need with a 10600K), I'd go for a Z490 Unify instead of the Strix Z490-E, unless you need Intel QSV for Adobe.

    Fanboism isnt going to get you very far here bud. AMD isnt better in all regards, especially not for gaming. intel Still kicks it (for now) at gaming. a 10700 will still crush a 3700x (they are the same price) so yeah Use your non Fanboy goggles :P

    Hey guys,

    I am done with the build and everything is brilliant. Thank you for your help.

    I learned a lot from this build, like: Fractal cases are garbage. I personally made a mistake with the size (I can't put on the second fan for the CPU cooler but it idling around 27... should be fine) but the build quality is not the best. Manual states that I can fit multiple 140mm fans but it's not true. I was better of with the 120's

     

    RE fans

    I have a small problem with the fans. They are too loud an I am not sure why? The CPU fan is labbalaled as pump? They are all PWA. Not sure how to start debugging? I used the first fan header from the left on top. The rest of the fans are powered with a Y splitter except the back fan - that one has it's own header.

     

    How does one track down these problems?

    Can I go for it? I would like to post pictures once the build is done.

  4. I understand that for gaming the 10600 is better with 16GB ram but I use After Effects and sometimes run heavy Python scripts as well.

    I would like to stick to the 10700 non K (I will never OC - not my cup of tea and I love durability)

     

    RAM:

    I found this ram but I hate RGB: G.Skill Trident Z Neo RGB 2x16GB DDR4 3200Mhz CL16

    Do you have a better suggestion?

     

    MOBO: 

    Asus ROG STRIX Z490-E seems to have decent features and two things I never cheap out on are mobo and PSU.

     

    Thanks for the Noctura suggestions - I will go for them.

  6. Let's end the debate. As much as I would like to experiment... I don't have the budget for it and I am an Intel fanboy. I would like to go for intel for my personal casual rig.

     

    I am not sure which processor is the best for this budget and for the 3070. That's where i would like to get some guidance.

    aside from the amd/intel debate (10th gen intel is better than 3rd gen amd, but amd is launching new cpus in a week which should be better than intel from leaked specs), the most obvious thing that's wrong with your build is the cpu cooler.

    you need a proper big cooler for a hot intel chip. what you picked is a low performance low profile cooler for tiny cases where there is no space.

    I also need a mobo and of course the cpu cooler suggestion once we know which CPU is the best option.

  7. Budget (including currency): £1000 - £2000

    Country: UK/England/London

    Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Adobe CC and Casual gaming.

    Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

    I have peripherals and an Aorus AD27QD monitor.

    It's not available on part picker but I plan to buy a GEFORCE RTX 3070.

    I am not sure about the PSU and motherboard. Plus the i5 might be a bottleneck for the GPU but I have no idea - that's exactly why I am here.

    Welcome to the forum!

     

    Honestly, kinda poor budget utilization. You can get a lot more for your money without sacrificing any reliability or quality. A big overspend on a lot of the parts chosen.

     

    I recommend:

    Even this is overkill in many areas, but you are getting a whole lot more for your money.

    Yeah, I agree on finding cheaper components (not cheapest components).  

     

    You can find a cheaper PSU of equal reliability and capability.  Cheaper NVMe drive (a regular 970 if you want Samsung).  Something like a ASUS Tuf X570 if you want X570.  And if you check eBay you may find someone that has a bunch of Corsair SL fans they're selling new and freshly pulled from AIOs.  Those may still pop up, but they may not now the mining craze is over.  

     

    Edit:

    NVM those are 140mm fans.  I was speaking about 120mm.

    No, there are plenty of B450 boards for example that are Ryzen 3000 ready out of the box

  9. Thank you all.

     

    You just suggested a more powerful CPU. Can I use the stock fan?

     

    plus

     

    I don't have the money for the 2080 super. That's why I linked this: https://www.nvidia.com/en-gb/geforce/graphics-cards/rtx-2070-super/ - is it a good idea to order it from here? 

     

    ---

     

    This is the build according to my preference and based on feedback. I don't want to change the noctura/case/psu combo - I just choose a less powerful PSU from the same brand.
