Building a PC after 9 years

 Share

Country: Philippines

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Games mostly

Other details: I will be reusing my GPU - GTX 1060 6GB until the new GTX 3xxx series comes out. Targeting the RTX 3070. 

 

 

Planning on picking up these parts, apart from the GPU(Which I currently use on my system).

 

It's just that apparently there's a compatibility issue according to PCpartpicker:

 

"The Asus ROG STRIX Z490-A GAMING ATX LGA1200 Motherboard has an additional 4-pin ATX power connector but the Corsair TXM Gold 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply does not. This connector is used to supply additional 12V current to the motherboard. While the system will likely still run without it, higher current demands such as extreme overclocking or large video card current draws may require it."

 

Does this mean that I cannot use the Corsair TXM Gold 650 with the motherboard? What should I change the PSU to? The Corsair RM650 80 Plus Gold doesn't give me any compatibility issue, it's just that's $20 more expensive. Worth the extra bucks?

 

Also is the H510 case a good one, apparently it only has 2 exhaust fans included. Wondering if it's better to add 2 intake fans.

Get a 3700x

get a lower end tower cooler

x570 mid range board.

Change to a 3600 CL16 kit

There are cheaper NVME SSDs

case and PSU are fine.

Good luck, Have fun, Build PC, and have a last gen console for use once a year. I should answer most of the time between 9 to 3 PST

If you're set on building now and going with Intel, here's the build with some slight adjustments/improvements:

In short: cooler is cheaper and performs similarly while looking arguably better (since you chose the old poop and tan NH-D15), Prime Z490-A is literally the same as the Strix Z490-A except for BIOS flashback iirc at $20 less, RAM has tighter timings, faster NVMe SSD (other options would be the Sabrent Rocket, ADATA SX8200 Pro, HP EX950 or Samsung 970 EVO), the case offers much better airflow, and higher quality PSU (you can swap it for a Corsair RMx, depending on which you find cheaper) - bump this up to a 650W if you also plan on upgrading to a 10900K.

 

That being said, unless you're exclusively playing competitive titles at 240Hz low settings, going with Ryzen might be a just as good, if not better option. Also, Zen 3 might tighten Intel's advantage in very high refresh rate gaming anyway, if we're to go by the leaks/rumours.

Desktop: Intel Core i9-9900K | ASUS Strix Z390-F | G.Skill Trident Z Neo 2x16GB 3200MHz CL14 | EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER XC Ultra | Corsair RM650x | Fractal Design Define R6

Laptop: 2018 Apple MacBook Pro 13"  --  i5-8259U | 8GB LPDDR3 | 512GB NVMe

Peripherals: Leopold FC660C w/ Topre Silent 45g | Logitech MX Master 3 & Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed | HIFIMAN HE400se & iFi ZEN DAC | Audio-Technica AT2020USB+

Sadly, the ASUS PRIME Z490-A is not available here in the country yet. As well most of the parts you listed..(Fractal Design Meshify, and the be quiet! Straight power 11 550.) I changed my ram to your recommendation, my SSD to a 970 evo plus(The only one available here),  as well as my cooler. 

 

Any thoughts on the compatibility note of pcpartpicker I listed above? 

 

Edit: Apparently I can't find a single 3600mhz CL16 here in any of the stores I can buy pc parts from. I'm stuck with 3600mhz CL18, is that bad?

The note refers to the fact that the PSU only has a single 8-pin EPS connector, while the motherboard has an 8+4-pin configuration.

Unless you're into extreme overclocking (so subzero, LN2), you're pretty much guaranteed to not need more than the 384W of power a single 8-pin can supply. Even a 10900K will "only" pull around 310-330W of power at 5.2GHz. You'll run into thermal limitations before you get to exceed the power limit of the single 8-pin.

Thank you so much. I edited my post earlier but I don't think you were able to see it.

 

"Apparently I can't find a single 3600mhz CL16 here in any of the stores I can buy pc parts from. I'm stuck with 3600mhz CL18, is that bad?" Tried looking for any of the brands on any stores, no single 3600mhz CL16 available. Should I settle with 3600mhz cl18?

It's fine, there's not really going to be any noticeable difference in performance in real-world tasks between CL16 and CL18 at 3600MHz.
