Hi all new to this site. Just wanted to post up my new build that I've started collecting since a month ago. Only parts left that I'm in doubt with are the cooling side of things.

Case fans and Cpu cooler to be exact. I've got a list so far from yesterday as I am doing my research before i make my final decision.

I don't want to make a mistake with this as it's an important part for my build to compliment my case. I'm wanting to overclock the 2700x to 4.2 (4.3 if lucky, but not worried if i can't) 500mhz jump up from 3.7 is decent enough for me.

I know fellow members that have the same cpu and motherboard as me on overclock.net are running their system at 4.2 atm. Bios updates have been helping with board.

I would have picked an Intel system like I planned originally if the board wasn't stable from researching. I've been waiting over a year for the price drop of it too. It was too expensive to begin with.

I don't believe it should have been a $300 US board back in 2017. Here are the following case fans and cpu coolers for cooling options. Please let me know what are the decent picks for me to narrow down with!

Also to note that I'm going with a monochrome theme white-black. Blue and white as my led lighting. (but not over the top with it) and I've also never done a build with water cooling before.

Thanks in advance,

Case fans: wanting to replace rear and possibly another 2 x 120/140mm fans to replace the silverstone fans from case (can have 6-7 fans total depending on what choice I use for cpu cooler)

SilverStone FG141 140mm RGB LED Fan Grille (these are already in front of case x3-thinking about getting one for rear) https://www.mwave.com.au/product/silverstone-fg141-140mm-rgb-led-fan-grille-ac09440

(con is only 2 years warranty compared to 5 years for the others)

Looks only go well with the 240mm aio H100i, but also is costly compared to other options with 5 years warranties.

Here is the rest of my parts I've collected for my new build: Feel free to constructively criticise anything https://au.pcpartpicker.com/user/Stolly76/saved/XpbvWZ

My last build that I'm using now was back in 2016 (bang for buck 1080p gaming $1650 build) Had saved up some money since then for this year.

Originally planned for an Intel i5 9600k or i7 9700k with Gigabyte Aorus Ultra z390, but I would if it was strictly gaming only so the ryzen option made more sense for gaming plus stream and videoedit.

I appreciate anyone's time to comment here and I'll be patiently waiting as I plan to build the system start of May once I get the final cooling and case fan parts ordered etc

Sorry for the layout of the page. I ended up trying to fix it last night. It was a lot worse than it is now.

icetorch 1 point 2 days ago

In case you didn't know, there's a button on the system build page that lets you share your list in a much easier to read format. If there is something that's not listed you can use the "add custom parts" button.

Stolly76 submitter 1 point 1 day ago

ah i'm terribly sorry I had looked at that first, but i couldn't find the custom button to change price of the parts. I didn't know about the custom parts method. Will transfer from that post and attempt that soon as i get the chance. Hopefully can get some help cause I need to finalise my cooling options to start my build in early May. Thank you for your message and help Icetorch.

Yes its under the Accessories / Others category on the build page. The bottom of the parts list.
