Thought process

I'm planning on picking an i7 9th Gen 9700k w/ integrated graphics card ( good or bad?)

Here is my parts list so far.

 

https://newegg.io/96b8b9a

 

Hope to hear any tips or changes I should make.

 

Budget

$1600-1800

 

Cheers,

Don't. 9700k is old and that motherboard is really bad.

You will also need to change the cooler to something that's compatible with LGA 1700 socket

In CAD:

 

Intel i7-9700K $583

Fractal S36 Blackout 360mm AIO $173

Gigabyte H310M S2P $130

Gskill F4-3200C16D-16GVKB 3200MHz 2x8GB $80

MetallicGear Neo Qube front glass $160

Corsair RM850x $170

Seagate Q5 1TB QLC SSD $105

Seagate ST2000DM008 2TB 7.2K HDD $60

MS Windows 10 Retail $165

 

Heck no. Terrible prices aside (which is why we usually don't buy everything from one store) is sadly far from the worst of it. Start by using ca.pcpartpicker.com.

 

CPU: We have 12th gen now that is way faster, or 11th gen if you're looking to snatch one on the cheap. 9700k today isnt even worth $250, let alone double.

 

Motherboard: There are two simple things to rule out a motherboard, it's function and power delivery. A K CPU on Intel means you can overclock it, but only Z chipset boards can. If one of the two doesnt support overclocking, you cannot at all. H310M S2P is also not built to handle a 9700k's power draw, it will slow the CPU further down in order to not overheat itself.

 

Case: The real deal of this design, the Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic, can be had for the same or less money. It doesnt support two systems in one case but you dont seem to be using it as so either.

 

SSD: Kingston A2000, as a TLC SSD with similar performance, can be had for a bit less.

 

OS: Just get an OEM key, maybe not 1/10 the price but still significantly cheaper.

Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge. You just opened a new world and perspective when it comes to approaching this from the get go!

Okay so did some re-evaluating of what every one mentioned, and this is what I came up with. 

 

https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/GCLj8J

 

As you can see below there is some minor compatibility issues.

 

To solve these issue where would I find this mounting adapter

https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/NHCFf7/be-quiet-shadow-rock-3-cpu-cooler-bk005

 

Also what to look for while checking dimension restrictions?

 

- Much Appreciated

Cheers,

compatibility notes mean :

1. your cpu cooler need extend mount adapter because the board is new socket.

maybe you can contact the official website. or lucky if the box is a new version(has include)

2. your cpu cooler maybe not fit at your case (the height).recheck the dimensions of that two and

    should use low profile ram heat sink. i guess that trident z's heat sink was litle thick compare to the others

 

my critict :

the hdd not to good. the speed just 5400rpm,should using for nas/backup. find another good one with 7200rpm

 

excellent build btw

Why an HDD, especially on of such low capacity?

 

Unless there are mitigating factors I suggest eliminating the HDD in favor of faster, quieter, and more reliable storage. Three options. A single 2TB NVMe drive, a second 1TB unit, or a 2.55" SSD (perhaps more than 1TB capacity).

 

There is better performing, less expensive RGB memory available.

If you really want Trident Z a better performing kit is available for just CA$10 more, https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/ybrcCJ/gskill-tridentz-rgb-16gb-2-x-8gb-ddr4-3200-memory-f4-3200c16d-16gtzr.

The video card is something I will plan on upgrading later on, or if i can find one on a private sale, I might consider that given the cost. I also want to maintain performance and aesthetics which is why I went with the-  be quiet shadow rock

https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/NHCFf7/be-quiet-shadow-rock-3-cpu-cooler-bk005

as I'm going for white/black theme and I think this chunky fan will sit right in my build.

If you really want Trident Z a better performing kit is available for just CA$10 more, https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/ybrcCJ/gskill-tridentz-rgb-16gb-2-x-8gb-ddr4-3200-memory-f4-3200c16d-16gtzr.

I have made the necessary in my parts list. Went with upgraded trident z ( just love the way it looks and the reviews are next to none on performance).

Next I have eliminated the HDD and i believe i have a box here in the house somewhere with 3 or 4 SSD (2.5) which will help save a bit.

 

thanks for the reply!

the CPU should be easily fast enough, the RAM should be fast enough, and so on so fourth, if you ever need a GPU upgrade after that, I might recommend the one I did earlier, do note that a 550W psu with a 12600k and a 3060 might be somewhat tight, but the worst case scenario is that it has an error and burns down your house, killing everyone in your neighborhood and causing severe environmental damage in your near area, along with somehow setting a gas line alight, causing an enormous fire, further increasing the damage your pc crashes from insufficient wattage and you buy another psu
