  1. PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 3.7 GHz 12-Core Processor £571.51 @ Overclockers.co.uk CPU Cooler ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II 280 72.8 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler £101.49 @ Scan.co.uk Motherboard Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WI-FI) ATX AM4 Motherboard £379.99 @ CCL Computers Memory Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 64 GB (2 x 32 GB)
  2. So I have the motherboard and I am supposed to receive the RAM and 5900x CPU tomorrow night. I got the AIO recommended by you after lots of thinking about NH-D15 vs X63 vs Arctic Liquid Freezer II. This arrives tomorrow. I also ordered the Noctua thermal paste NT-H2 which arrives Friday next week so until then I'll either use the one pre-applied to the AIO or if it doesn't have one I still have a dab of E1 IC essential from Cooler Master.
  3. Got the RAM so far and the PSU is what I already have will have to review online if any issues with the 3080 (EVGA 750W 80+ Gold Certified). So I went with the standard Crosshair VIII Hero, 60A should still be a lot more than needed for the 5900. I got the motherboard with Wi-Fi for only £320 instead of the standard £420. Now I just need to find someone to give me a CPU for me to test it with before the 30d return runs out.
  4. https://www.scan.co.uk/shop/computer-hardware/gpu-nvidia/all Same place now a Zotac 3090 in stock. https://www.scan.co.uk/products/zotac-nvidia-geforce-rtx-3090-trinity-24gb-gddr6x-ray-tracing-graphics-card
  5. I would buy the Acer, much better overall. Even if you play FPS games and you'd want the crosshair still not worth the Asus for those features.
  6. I was looking at the wrong one, sorry. Had the Dark Hero specs open by mistake which is 90A but more expensive.
  7. Crosshair is also 90A. I'm okay with the chipset fan but the crosshair doesn't have one so I don't understand why you mention either of these? Thermal paste.. noted. Saved Cooler noted. Will review better once board is bought
  8. While we are at it, is the Kraken X63 AIO CPU Water Cooler - 280mm gonna be enough for the 5900x? Currently in basket:
  9. How about the https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/L23mP6/asus-rog-crosshair-viii-hero-atx-am4-motherboard-rog-crosshair-viii-hero
  10. Godlike is 2.5 times the price of carbon... that's quite frankly too much.
  11. I wasn't talking about godlike, carbon is ATX. Are you trying to say godlike is another good one to look at? How is it better? I'm buying it for the 5900x so I won't be looking at B series. Almost bought it so I'll wait a bit more to see more opinions.
  12. Decided on MSI MPG X570 GAMING PRO CARBON WIFI AM4, cheaper and will only miss out on two things, the USB ports in the back and the 10Gig port both of which I'll have to buy extra. The power delivery is better on the creation but e-atx form factor just makes it a bit so much more unlikable as I'd have to look for bigger cases.. Topic can be closed...
  13. Guys, What are the main differences of the below two motherboards: MSI MPG X570 GAMING PRO CARBON WIFI AM4 +I'd buy a 10gb pcie card to fit my 10gig network (extra 40/100) or MSI PRESTIGE X570 CREATION AM4 Which already has 10gb but £210 more ($276 more)
  14. I didn't mean that one specifically. But rather to look for something similar on a website you can buy from. Look at the title and keywords that you can search with similar models.
