Project: "Work In Progress"

Hey all. Thought I'd share my first build with you guys:

 

CPU: Intel - Core i7-8086K 4 GHz 6-Core Processor 

CPU Cooler: Noctua - NH-D15S 82.52 CFM CPU Cooler 

Motherboard: Gigabyte - Z390 AORUS MASTER ATX LGA1151 Motherboard 

Memory: G.Skill - Sniper X 32 GB (4 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 

Storage: Intel - 760p Series 256 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive 

Video Card: EVGA - GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4 GB SC GAMING ACX 2.0 Video Card 

Case: Fractal Design - Meshify C Dark TG ATX Mid Tower Case 

Power Supply: Aerocool - 650 W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply 

Operating System: Microsoft - Windows 10

Case Fan (Exhaust): Fractal Design - X2 GP-12 (Black) 52.3 CFM 120mm Fan

Case Fan (Intake): Noctua - NF-A14 PWM chromax.black.swap 82.52 CFM 140mm Fan x2

 

So not that anyone needs to justify they're choice of parts, I'll justify mine. First, I do have plans for this PC to be an on going project, to learn how to overclock and generally mess about with. I had/have plans to upgrade to a i9-9900k but my contact couldnt give me a date on delvery so they made me an offer I couldnt pass up on a i7-8086k with delivery in 2 weeks.

Two, the one that will piss most off, the 1050 TI. I was willing to wait on the 9900k so had no intention in buying a GPU until I had the i9. When I was told about the 8086k, I picked up the 1050 TI just to have something since I got it on BF/CM sale. I won't be running a proper monitor, just a 22 inch tv for now, and the games I like are Tropico, SimCity and the like so at the minute I don't need massive refresh rates or anything more than 1080. This will also be replaced with a 2080 at some point in the future along with a proper monitor.

Anyway, let me know what you think!

Cheers

I think that the 8086k isnt worth it, seeing that a 8700k is baseically the same preocessor for cheaper and the i9 is a great processor (bought one myself), although its really expensive and as you already said, upgrading the gpu is the first thing to do!

I got my 8086k for less than the cost of a 8700k so it's fine for me. And the fact it can be clocked on all cores fairly easy, I thought it was good to learn on.

Then it sounds like a really great deal and i think you dont really need a 9900k in the near future, especially with ryzen 3000 series coming. Except you have workloads which really need a lot of cores

I don't currently. I just have an opportunity to build a monster of a system at a low enough price.

How has your experience been with the AORUS motherboard. I have only used AORUS on the AMD Ryzen/Threadripper platforms.

I'm still awaiting delivery of my processor so overclocking and the like I couldn't say. Assembly was good. All the sockets had a good snug fit when adding parts.

Thought I'd update this a touch. My machine is finished stage one.

New Logitech K120 Keyboard, M570 Trackball (suffer a touch of tendonitis in my hands and arms so mice hurt my hands after a while) and 2x Xbox One Controllers also have been added. Waiting on a ASUS VG278QR monitor to be full up and running.

 

Stage 2 will be a RTX 2060/70/80, some etched glass graphics, some cable extensions and some more storage.
