PC Build based on i9-9900 Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Hello Captains, 

 

I am planning to get a new rig soon this week, however before making my final purchase, I'd like to get your feedback on it. Here is the list of the specs:

CPU: i9-9900KS

Mainboard: ASUS ROG Strix Z390-E Gaming

RAM: Corsair DIMM 32 GB DDR4-3600 Quad-Kit

GPU: ASUS GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER ROG STRIX OC

CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15

SSD: Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500 GB

HDD: WD WD40EZRZ 4 TB

Case: Fractal Design Meshify S2 Black

PSU: be quiet! STRAIGHT POWER 11 CM 850W

The final cost would be around 2200 Euros

 

What do you guys think?

 

P/S: I am planning to OC my CPU to 5 MHz.

Nice rig

personally ide go for the gigabyte aorus master board  that’s what I have also, if your planning yo OC 

and swap out the cpu cooler for a water cooler.

i have the h110 Corsair which runs my cpu quite cool

but there are new models  now.

Well I have seen couple of reviews, I am bit hesitant for gigabytes as I heard about their bios interface. I've used both MSI and Asus in the past and I was pretty satisfied unless something has changed?

Is it really proven that Noctua NH-D15 won't cool down my PC enough? From what I tested and saw, is very decent cooler, the only thing I don't like about it just the size.

I have a portable PC built in a LAN-party box running a 9900K clocked to 5.0GHz on all 8 cores (no HT) and an NH-D15.  In a 68 deg F (20 deg C) room, it will keep the 9900K under 80 deg C with P3D workloads, but it will hit 100 deg and start thermal throttling when running a stress test like Prime95.  The overclocked 9900K (with hyperthreading disabled) is right on the ragged edge of the NH-D15's capacity.  I'm going to take it to Florida and Texas next time I visit the grandkids, and I think I'll probably have to dial back my overclock a bit when running it in a warmer room.

I also have an H110 240mm AIO loop on my daily use computer (i7-7700K) and I don't think it's any better than the NH-D15.  If you go with a water loop, either build a custom loop or use a triple-radiator AIO if you want a step up from the Noctua.  You'll need a full-size tower case to do that, though.

Thank for the reply. As I thought as well. I will just go with the NH-D15, however I will try to make sure my case has enough airflow

It’s a myth their bios aint too bad.

if you  are capable of  building a pc. Then you shoul me be able to figure out the interface.

ya the NH-D15 is a great cooler

but takes up too much room in your case.
