you should really upgrade your cpu to a K SKU so then you can take full advantage of your overclocking mobo.

so I saw your comment about the case on your last build and I'd suggest looking into the Lian-Li o11WGX. It's ROG and it's pretty big up top.

EDIT: Link

umm why'd you get a 1080ti for 1200 when you could easily get a pretty good 2080ti for that price

That's always your decision. I wasn't trying to discourage you from using a AIO but just saying that they've got more points of failure. Despite this, most companies will replace your hardware if it leaks and ruins other hardware as long as you're still under warranty. But it should just be fine either way.

for the ssd: That's what you added lol. IDK what you wanted so I just left it

as for the CPU cooler: a 280mm or 360mm cooler would definitely do better than an air cooler but they can leak whereas there's really no way for an air cooler to fail.

  • better cpu

  • probably a better cpu cooler and it'll last longer (a 120mm AIO is about the same as a good air cooler)

  • Fancier motherboard with integrated wifi (got rid of your network card)

  • Fancier RAM

  • much better gpu

Sorry if I forgot anything

it might but at that point a cpu upgrade would cost a lot more than just adding in a new gpu, psu, and ram. It'd probably include a new mobo, new ram, new cpu (ofc).

Another good upgrade solution would be an SSD to speed up load times

Idk much about how a motherboard affects overclocking, but I chose the ASUS because it had WIFI and good reviews.

the ASUS z390 boards only have 4 phase vrms which aren't really that good for OC'ing
