things you would change in this build Gaming build?

 Share

Hello, I'm planning to build this PC but everything is very early, this build most likely will be complete in a couple of months time. I've done a lot of research and spent a lot of time learning about all the parts and what I should be looking for in every single part. but still, I'm not an expert so I need your help. this is obviously a gaming PC but I went with mostly high end parts because I want it to last a while (at least 5+ years). that's all. Thanks.

Saved almost $100 just by switching out a few parts for different versions.

H100i pro > H100i v2. Same thing, no RBG ring just RBG logo

850 Evo > 860 Evo. Same thing, newer generation, twice the size, still cheaper

RAM --- Intel CPUs don't really care about memory speed, especially for gaming. I saved you $25 in RAM alone, and it's still black, and it's even still 2800 MHz. You can save another $5-10 by going with 2400, doesn't really matter though.

 

The rest of it looks good

use nvme drive, not much more expensive

$85 for a 500GB 2.5" SSD or $140 for a 500GB NVMe. It's kind of a big difference, and the speed difference for loading games and windows really isn't that much. It's just a gaming rig, not a caching server or something.

I appreciate the response, will look into this technology as I don't have much knowledge about it.

Why are you getting the RTX 2070? Get a GTX 1080 instead. I'd also save some money by getting an air cooler instead of an AIO liquid cooler like a Dark Rock Pro 4 or NH-D15.

wouldn't I struggle with overclocking if I used an air cooler? I live in the Middle East where in summer the outside temp is 45C+ so overclocked with an air cooler would probably run the GPU very hot.

Fair. I had the H100i v2 and I suppose it was louder than my H115i Pro. I suppose the H100i Pro has the same pump.

Yeah you can get a good price on a used 1080. However, a big air tower introduces RAM and case clearance issues, where AIOs have almost no compatibility issues these days. Also, the NH-D15 barely stays up with a good 240mm rad

The Dark Rock Pro 4 will be more quiet than most AIO liquid coolers because it doesn't have a pump.

The NH-D15 and DRP4 cost less and are more silent than AIO liquid coolers. And the fan on the DRP4 can be adjusted if necessary.

You just proved my point... You have to optimize an AIO for "silence" in order to handicap it enough to be at the levels of a high quality air cooler.

Fans create much more noise than pumps on good AIOs, and I didn't recommend any bad AIOs like a CM 240 Lite or something.

See above, the fan pushing air is what makes the most sound. Ask me how I know, I have one next to my ears right now. The fans on the AIO can be "adjusted if necessary" also so... yeah.

if the corsair one is not crazy loud... just noticeable its fine. but I really care most about cooling most efficiently because of my area's temp as I said above.

You can save a ton of money by going with the DRP4 or NH-D15. And as mentioned above, the DRP4 is a good air cooler that can compete with decent AIOs.

Stick with the H100i Pro if you want it a bit quieter. It does have a better pump and fans, I misspoke. But also look into a used GTX 1080, you should be able to find one under $400 and they perform basically the same as a 2070. You could also look for a 1080 Ti, which will probably cost a bit more (550-600) but performs better than a 2070

You can save a ton of money by going with the DRP4 or NH-D15. And as mentioned above, the DRP4 is a good air cooler that can compete with decent AIOs. 

Not to mention it looks awesome

I'm unfortunately that guy, who gives zero fucks about looks and cares about performance only. and of course, if the part is worth the money. at the end of the day I'm a student.

Get what you want. Dark rock Pro 4, NH-D15, H100i Pro, H115i Pro. They'll all be close in performance (getting better from left to right). If you get an air cooler, just make sure it fits in your case. There's probably a youtube video or three comparing them (or previous generations of the water coolers since they are pretty new).

thanks to you both. I appreciate your insight. I seem to be leaning towards the H100i, at the end of the day if it's performing not as expected I could always save a bit of money and swap out to either the NH-D15 or the DRP4.

Personally I'd go air cooling but whatever floats your boat I guess
