Fastest intel build possible


Budget (including currency): 10,000 USD

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Minecraft, 3D rendering, 3D modeling, CSGO, Battlefield, Fortnite, Shadow of Mordor, Destiny 2...

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

I want to build the fastest pc money can buy today, but I'm honestly not that much of a computer geek. I've tried pc part picker, but I also want to know what case would be best for airflow, and what motherboard would be the best for 12900k. That kinda stuff.


(you know I appreciate that rgb 😉

If you had to prioritise these two categories what would they be.








Which do you lean more heavily on do you think?

Maximums - Asus Z97-K /w i5 4690 Bclk @106.9Mhz * x39 = 4.17Ghz, 8GB of 2600Mhz DDR3,.. Gigabyte GTX970 G1-Gaming @ 1550Mhz

Yea you wont get any extra performance unless you overclock for your workload

By looking at this alone you will most likely not overclock


Get a 3080 instead of a 3090 unless you do 8k gaming


Cooling is overkill but atleast it has good performance, incl case fans can be shoved at the back as exhaust so aio in front


4000 cl18 so you dont have to bother overclocking, if you do you can expect abit of extra performance


Board is rather basic but thats because im pretty sure you dont overclock, if you do for some reason want to bother with overclocking then get a z690 tomahawk


Psu is overkill but thats for futureproof and its even going for a good price


Ssd is also overkill but thats also for futureproofing incase gen4 actually becomes useful for ppl outside of vid editing or ridicolously storage intensive workloads


Also if you dont overclock you arent losing much performance anyways but if you do then swap board for z690 tomahawk and swap ram for any 3200 cl14 aka b die kit cause b dies oc very well

Don't know how long you will have to wait for stock on the memory and GPU. If you want to buy in the next week or so, this is not the build for you.

Fair warning, it's not actually in stock for that price. It's a shuffle for that price thing. The KF is 613, but marketplace is selling the K for 717

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.
