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.
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
