Is my 9900K (future) build good?

Hello everyone

 

I was hoping you guys could help me out and tell me if my 9900K (future) build is good.

I am buying 2x8GB DDR4-3200Mhz Corsair Vengeance LPX RAM, 9900K, Z390 Aorus Elite and Cryorig H7 (will also be listed below).

Is it good, or should I go for other motherboards / coolers?

FYI: I am buying it off a German site called Mindfactory.de - The TRAY version (570€) is about 200€+ cheaper than the WOF version (740€), so I should pick the TRAY version, right?

Please bear in mind, that I am buying it off this website, so prices may differ.

This is one of the less cases I recommend a better motherboard if possible. A 9900k needs a lot of power, so as much as possible. Would a taichi ultimate, aorus master or a maximus fit? And I recommend some heavier cooling for the chip too. What about a be quiet dark rock pro 4 or noctua nh-d15?

9900k is hot, i would consider ryzen 2700x.

tray is good for intel, as it doesn't give you heatsink.

with ryzen you don't need to buy aftermarket cooler.

Ryzen 3600 @ 4.5ghz all cores | Asrock B550M Steel Legend | Radeon RX580 | 2x Samsung 16gb c-die 2666 @ 3600mhz cl16 | 500gb WD SN750 | 9 TB HDD | Deepcool Gammax 400 w/ 2 delta 4000rpm push pull | Antec Neo Eco Zen 500w

his motherboard choice has a fantastic VRM.

Here are my suggestions : - 

That is all for the build you linked , don't forget to pair a decent GPU with your system if its main purpose is for gaming, but if not , why are you even going for Intel then :P

CoolingGo for at-least a decent AIO( All In One )  Liquid Cooler like at-least a 240 mm ( radiator size) one by either Cooler Master( ML240R , ML240L ) or Corsair( H100i ). 

Or a big tower air cooler, but still some good recommendations, but any 240+ mm from asetek will do here.

I will probably use the ML240L from CoolerMaster. Is the case a bad choice?

its not a bad choice , just not so great in terms of airflow. But if you are looking for something looks focused and you are digging the design , go for it!

i would probably recommend water-cooling only. If budget allows , then even a custom loop will be great but then considering a motherboard upgrade for higher and stable overclock's will be a plus.

Yeah, agree with that costum loop, but don't underestimate the nhd15 and dark rock pro 4

Do you guys think I should buy the dark rock pro 4 / dh15 or the ML240L? Same price.

9900k needs a lot of cooling. At this point I think a 360 rad it pretty much minimum. 

 

Gigabyte has the best motherboard VRMs this cycle, but I would get a better SKU.

9900K  / Asus Maximus Formula XI / 32Gb G.Skill RGB 4266mHz / 2TB Samsung 970 Evo Plus & 1TB Samsung 970 Evo / EVGA 3090 FTW3.

2 loops : XSPC EX240 + 2x RX360 (CPU + VRMs) / EK Supremacy Evo & RX480 + RX360 (GPU) / Optimus W/B. 2 x D5 pumps / EK Res

8x NF-A2x25s, 14 NF-F12s and a Corsair IQ 140 case fan / CM HAF Stacker 945 / Corsair AX 860i

LG 38GL950G & Asus ROG Swift PG278Q / Duckyshine 6 YOTR / Logitech G502 / Thrustmaster Warthog & TPR / Blue Yeti / Sennheiser HD599SE

Valve Index, Knuckles & 2x Lighthouse V2

Look , yes that is surely a case. But i have worked for a PC building company for 2 years and have shipped more than 100 systems myself and have like 0 complains regarding the water-cooling even after such bad handling during shipping.
The cases you guys are mentioning is really rare . This is the thing , you got to risk it for better performance and better life of your system.

Cooler is a bit lackluster, but otherwise, sure. Fairly similar to what I have actually.

Again, what is wrong with a big air cooler?

I can relate, just created my account for this:

Proc: 9900k

Mobo z370 aorus gaming 7

Ram: 4x8GB @3600

Case: Carbide 540

Cooler: Corsair h115i and here I had good temps at 5Ghz but louder as hell (below 80°), if I change to a quieter profile the in became hot as hell (100° spikes)

So I decided to give a try to the NH-D15:

81-83° at full load (synthetic

65-80° in real life escenario (gaming)

And the noise? I always need to check if the fans are working ?

No regrets on switching to air.

 

Ed: Probably a 360 will do a better job, but in my case was a no go because of my case, it doesn't have the space for it as I use the front as intake and don't want to feed it with hot air as it could fry my RTX

You can't put a 9900k into a z370 motherboard right out of the box. You have to update the BIOS with an 8th gen chip so you have to buy z390 boards.

8086k

aorus pro z390

noctua nh-d15s chromax w black cover

evga 3070 ultra

samsung 128gb, adata swordfish 1tb, wd blue 1tb

seasonic 620w dogballs psu

the dark rock pro 3 is better than the 4 in themals, i personally switched back to air coolers to cool vrm+not having to worry about pumps not working (my fans can stop and my cpu won't be 90C, those 3 have virtually the same performance +/- 5C
