Overpriced garbage get cheaper stuff, aio no more than 140$, case no more than 110$, rams no more than 250$ but you should be getting 32gb in that case no more than 120$, and psu no more than 120$ for an 850w cause you really dont need a 1200w

 

Also consider a 12700k since it has similar performance to the 5900x while having better single core so better gaming performance

 

You also dont need an x570 board as you arent running dual gpu and gen4 ssds are useless garbage anyways so get a higher end b550 like b550 aorus pro ac, gaming edge/carbon wifi, etc.

Btw if you wanna have an lcd dont bother with aio lcd as theyre overpriced and you can find cheap small hdmi displays with much bigger size so they are more useful in general so temp monitoring or you wanna stick a gif on it

What's wrong with the Corsair 5000? I have a 4000X myself and it does just fine.

 

You know, it's one thing to prefer another brand /model, etc. or to say that there's a better option for better money. But to just call this or call that garbage is not cool.

OP: My PC cuts off and crashes. Is the 1000W PSU enough?  ME: 1000W is plenty, PSU or system board could be faulty. Get both tested.

OP: I don't think so, both parts were purchased last week.        😒  Why bother asking if you second-guess the advice?

Solid front panel so inferior to the 4/5000d airflow

And yet I air-cool my 5900X just fine with it. So what's so inferior about it?

Solid front panel, the cutouts look miniscule

Again, I air-cool a 12-core, 24-thread Zen3 Ryzen with PBO enbabled just fine. So while the D Airflow version would obviously flow and cool better, it's hardly cause to label the 4000X inferior. I idle at 38C-42C and moderately load between 57C-65C. My machine peaks at 70-75C unless I do a 30-minute CInebench R23 loop, which peaks at 87C with PBO enabled and has yet to throttle. 5900X is safe to 90C at full load, so what is the problem with this case?

Rubbish solid front that impedes airflow, though could you measure the width (inside) those meager looking slats? Maybe its not as tiny as i thought, if thats the case and temps arent too horrible vs the airflow version maybe it can be used as a cheaper alternative when the airflow versions are stupidly overpriced

One vent on each side of front panel, each measuring 1" x 17", totaling 34 square inches of intake area, about the same as two 4" x 4" (100mm) fans. I haven't found a formula to calculate airflow based on that, but it is apparently sufficient for cooling.

 

Approximate dimensions of my case show I only need five CFM of airflow to exhaust the entire case air volume in one minute. My experience leads me to believe the 4000X's reduced intake area simply requires more consistent fan operation, while a 4000D Airflow could use "Zero RPM" more consistently.

 

My 5900X / RTX3060ti build uses an iCUE Commander running three nose-mounted SP120s and three rear/topside-mount LL120s, supplementing a Scythe Mugen 5 Black Edition. Running between 35%-65%, they never top 85%, and are only noisy above 70%. The LL120s RGB do not match the SP120s, and do not support Zero RPM. Hence, an unintended aesthetic issue yields a slight cooling benefit in that they maintain some airflow when the MP120s are not needed.

 

But my build sufficiently proves the 4000X is plenty capable of cooling even the most demanding setup. I seriously doubt a 5950X / RTX3090 would require much more cooling, and I believe simple fan curve tweaks would handle that.
