Need help finishing 9700k/2080 build

Hello all,

 

Building a new gaming PC and could use some assistance on the last components of my build. Will mainly be used for VR and Battlefield V type games. I probably won't OC (I never OC'ed my previous 4790k) and if I did it would be mild. I don't care about RGB. I am trying to keep build below $2k. So far I have spent $1386 on:

 

i7-9700k

G.Skill Ripjaws V 8GBx2 DDR4-3000

Gigabyte RTX 2080 8GB Gaming OC

MasterCase MC500 ATX Mid Tower Case

EVGA SuperNOVA G3 750W Gold

 

For the hard drive I am thinking one 970 EVO NVMe M.2 256GB for OS and programs and one 860 EVO SATA M.2 1TB for storage/games. This should be a good setup right?

 

For CPU cooler I am thinking of going with an air cooler just because I hear they are quieter and less chance of issues over AIO. From reviews they look to match AIO on performance. Probably a Noctua NH-D15. Should be sufficient correct? 

 

The last thing I am struggling with is the motherboard. I assume I should go with a Z390 but there are so many to choose from. I want SLI support so I am looking at the ASRock Extreme4. Any comments on this?

 

Thank you guys for reading.

Just get the older 8700k if you arent overclocking much, the paste under the lid there won't be a problem in that case and it costs less

The NH-D15 is an enormous behemoth. It is certainly more than sufficient. Top tier air cooling. You could also go with the be quiet! dark rock pro 4. Of course, why bother getting a totally kick ass cooler, CPU designed specifically for good overclocks, and a super expensive motherboard if you won't even overclock? You should overclock even if you don't feel the need to, otherwise your money all goes to waste.

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.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed 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 mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I agree, don't spend extra money on OC compatible components if you aren't planning to OC. The Dark Rock Pro is an awesome cooler and more than sufficient for 90% of builds. I would also go with a 500GB m.2 nvme for your boot drive, and then a 2-3TB high rpm HDD for mass storage. Cheaper in the long run and very practical. Or jump on these black friday/holiday sales and get a 500gb nvme m.2 boot drive, 1TB sata SSD for cheap, and a 2TB HDD. Then you would be golden for storage! As for the motherboard, I would go for a mid tier z390 board, that way you are getting the latest features with this chipset. Asus, AsRock, Gigabyte..etc. They are all fairly similar, only real differences are features (wifi, internal headers...etc.), power delivery, and aesthetic.

 

Good luck!

General nerd and I work in corporate finance. Happy to help!
