Yeah I'll use the tx240 from xspc, I've talked To someone who is using them for a build now, and he is actually using two of them instead of a res
cpu block, reservoir & fittings, tubing, orings, screws
99mm (W) x 63mm (H) x 124mm (L) evga sfx psu
125 mm (W) x 63.5 mm (H) x 130 mm (D) sfx silverstone
GPU Dimensions: Height: 4.38 in - 111.15 mm
Length: 10.62 in - 269.83 mm
Width: Dual Slot --> 40mm +-1mm (1 5/16th" +-1/16th"). I used a plastic ruler.
I wish I could favorite this build, looking to do a node 202 hardline waterloop in 2020.
Question though, you list a lot of them under the software section? Why if you don't allow mentioning then as a solution or option?
OH yeah you can fit the headset in that 150$ budget too, the Hyper X Cloud Stinger is good, and most mechanical keyboards are good I didn't recommend one because I don't know what switch you prefer, and lastly, for budget mice, I would either recommend the G203 Prodigy, the Rival 110, or the Corsair Harpoon RGB at this price point, but I don't know what mouse type you prefer, or how big your hand is.

AMD parts list in your budget and arguably better >.> you could use extra money to maybe get a bit better motherboard, or slightly better ram, maybe a a little better RTX 2060 or something...
This is slightly over budget, in which case, I would swap the cpu for an AMD one, for more cost savings. Performance will be similar anyways...
Thanks man! Considering it for a future project...
How is the airflow and the building experience in this case? Do you think a radiator would fit (obv with fans) in the front?
lol yeah def late but thanks for the update, glad it's still going good in general though
That's true but you can get one down the line, in like 6 months or something like that...
This would also work
It's a little expensive but I think it's worth it. You get a hell of a lot of performance. You could switch the CPU to a ryzen 3 and the GPU to a RX570 and would still be pretty awesome.
make sure it runs the game at 1080p 144hz.
lol it might do 60 at 1440p, actually probably in most games (not all)
I'm not saying it's a bad cooler, I'm not sure how hot the 9600k will be when you overclock it, but the eighth gen was super hot so I would imagine the ninth gen to run warmer, so something a little bit beefier than that would be required I think.
That's good, maybe a dark Rock pro 4, or a good cryorig cooler, or the nh d15
So do you have a space heater now? Plans to watercool (not if but what's your layout plan) ?
Oh yeah, this build doesn't have built in wifi, but I'm assuming you'll just put this next to your access point, and keep it there.
I'm not to sure how to approach builds that run for 24 hours, but I would imagine a cheap xeon would work well. Then I added a cheap quiet tower cooler b/c I feel like any stock cooler it would come with wouldn't be good enough. That mb is the cheapest motherboard i could find that actually has good reviews. For the ram, I feel like the speed and amount doesn't matter to much but I feel like 8GB in dual channel is like a minimum for keeping up with traffic. You have two hard drives you can run in raid 0, but a small fast boot drive should be good for well, booting and idk, certain files you want to access quicker. I added a cheap built gpu that's passively cooled for silence, and because you need a video out b/c there isn't an integrated gpu, lastly a cheap case to put it in.
where are you in Europe? if you lmk we can get a better idea if what prices work for you, since we can swtich to different regions such as France, Germany etc.:
i would prefer this tbh if youre ok with doing mail in rebates, lmk if you arent and i can change it
I'm assuming you need wifi [(ie i will choose a motherboard with built in wifi, which shrinks options a little bit, but it's easier than choosing a motherboard without built in wifi and adding an adapter)] will prefer a standard ATX size motherboard, instead of a smaller pc, smaller form factor [(aka smaller than a regular tower, used if you will move your pc around to other people's apartments / houses etc.:, or if you travel a lot, or maybe if you have a very small amount of desk space)].
true, but I'm trying to use his budget to the fullest. The cheapest 1060 is 220$, and the cheapest 1070 is 280$. I wouldn't get the 1060 b/c even at 1080p, it struggles a little bit in some games, but at its core its a 1080p game killer, its just that for 130$ more, you get almost 1080 performance, if he's got the money he should just go for it imo.
(i mean if hes tight on budget, and can't go over it that much once tax / shipping is applied he could get the EVGA GTX 1070 that's going for 280$ rn, and that would probably give him more than enough headroom.)
I chose the best overall optical drive for the price. Get this instead it you need Blu Ray. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/z2dqqs/lg-optical-drive-wh14ns40
That case is the cheapest one thats pretty good quality... It's not tempered glass lmk if you need that.
You might have to go a little over budget bc I can't find a quality case with a 5.25" external drive Bay that doesn't have bad quality, plus the optical drive isn't free either, unless you can reuse an optical drive you already have?
Oh sorry I forgot I'm gonna need to choose a different case bc that one doesnt short optical drives
Not really if you can afford it, I would get a different CPU cooler though.
I didn't know what form factor you wanted so I chose ATX. Also I didn't know if you need WiFi & BT in your build or if you have Ethernet and don't care for BT so I chose something with built in WiFi. The Ryzen 5 2600 is the best bang for the buck CPU out. Since overclocking is pretty easy I slapped on a Dark Rock 4 since it won't generate too much heat if you push it reasonably and it's pretty quiet and reliable. That RAM kit is def. worth the money, and after the PSU and other items I had about 48$ left for the case, and chose the only Corsair case there, good quality and had TG. The 1070Ti is the best bang for the buck NVIDIA GPU out so I chose the cheapest one from Zotac, which still has a pretty good PCB / shroud design, if you're not a fan of ZOTAC you can spend a little more and get something from MSI or EVGA.
Also sound card differences on motherboards arent that important unless you're doing some serious stuff, you'll be fine with most stuff.
I'm not sure but is SSE2 stuff compatible with the newer SSE4, and other newer stuff because SSE2 is old asf.
Only in some games though, not all. Plus the money he will have to pay on his power bill will not be worth it in the long run, if you're talking about saving money. + Some games like witcher 3 don't support crossfire very well
yeah but 3 is kinda wierd also thats gonna draw a lot of power
or he could get a 2700x, if you're gonna buy an intel processor you should get the 9900k or 8700k, because a) the 9900k top of the line and offers hyper threading and the 9800k is a let down, with 8 physical cores and no hyperthreading for the price you pay for it. The 8700k has HT for 6c / 12t and you can oc it 5ghz. I would prefer the 8700k at the prices offered currently.
Why no 2080 or 2080ti?
Either that or you could consider a VEGA Frontier Edition, that would probably work wonders; if you wanted to go NVIDIA, you should get a Quadro, I'm not too knowledgeablr about them and they're a little pricey but they're designed for buisnesses and professionals, and I'm pretty sure they would work with osx if they don't I would probably recommend the frontier edition with it's 16GB of Vram.
this is actually really cool, I was thinking about doing something like this for someone with a Node 202, and the Scythe Big Shuriken II or whatever it's called for cooling the cpu
For GPU sag, Jay-Z Two Cents addressed this and said that if you screw a screw in the back part of your case (where you route cables) under the metal support thing of your gpu in a hole, it will keep it solid - and it will form his video proof, but thats only if you have access to those holes
Pretty crazy build
