Description

As the title says, this was my first ever build. I made sure to get all the parts on sale so the final price isn't what I actually spent on it. I got tired of playing games at 30 FPS on a 1080P monitor off a laptop so I decided to go all in on this build. If anyone has any suggestions or recommendations for upgrades/future builds I would be all ears!

Made a very similar build myself, albeit my CPU/GPU combo wasn't this high end. I know very little about icue and customizing fans, like if I want to have a rainbow wave like effect but choose my own colors. Do you have any info on how to do this and/or videos you used that explain it? I'm at a loss.

To be honest I have enough different manufacturers in my machine that I'm running Asus Aura and EVGA Precision X1 simultaneously to get the colors I want. These applications provide a ton of customization available. It also helps that the MOBO I'm using has an ample number of RGB headers available.

wait, are you controlling the LL120s outside of icue?

Hey i had a question. I'm using your MOBO and COOLER. For the water cooler, the three connections you have on it, where did you put that three pronged connection on the mobo? i cant seem to find and 3 prong connections on the mobo. did you just put it on a 4 prong one?

Are you referring to the RBG header for the cooler?

Does your EVGA Black 2080 have rgb or does it only shine blue?

It's RGB. I had to download EVGA Precision X1 to get it to show other colors.

Any issues with the RAM running at its rated speed? It says it's designed for AMD systems but I assume runs fine with Intel?

Was going to ask the same thing. It's been interesting looking for the correct product code to do an AMD build.

Congrats on the new build, my dude! Gotta say though... Some of your parts seem kinda overkill for just gaming. Then again, I'm not one to talk. Haha!

Anyway, are the temps on the 9900K as bad as they say? Well, you've got an AIO setup, so things should be fine on your end. Just curious.

Oh it's definitely overkill. But since it's my first build I figured I would rather add things later as more advanced games come out than restart from scratch. I'm also a developer so it's nice when I can run Eclipse, Chrome, and a game simultaneously - which this CPU can do.

This build is so new that I'm still running benchmarks. I'll update with temps and such later on :)

dont worry, im getting the same "overkill" comments from people on mine xD im still getting the config, my budget is only under 3000, but i got a FE 2080, i7 8700k, 2tb HDD 7200 rpm, 250GB ssd SATA, and a 750 watt semi modular config
