Seeing as you said in another reply, that this is a 'business expense', what does your boss thing of the pink and green? lol. Nice system either way though, hopefully they dig the colors as I do too.

Nice build, I love how much you stuck with two brands. also +1 for going with a great board for OCing a 9900k.

I do question your board choice considering you're paying that extra premium for watercooling bits yet you have an AIO.

I really like this build, the power delivery on the board is also kept cool under that monoblock instead of a passive heatsink, which not only helps with overclocking but also with the longevity of the board considering it has a four phase VRM.

+1 from me since it looks good and powerful.

Can you move the graphics card up a slot? Not only are you choking it on the airflow but you're not getting the full potential of the card as I'm pretty sure that's a 8x slot and not 16x

I'm not sure if this build is a meme or not. you bought a board that's more for custom loops yet you have a 240mm radiator.

Sorry to inform you though, I kinda moved cases to a white H700i, but I still have the case and I think I'll use it again when a build calls for such a beautiful purple case.

Nice build, yours is sorta similar to mine except I've got an FTW3 1080 Ti, the storages and case are different, along with memory speeds, CPU and cooler. Which sounds kinda different but like you, wanted an ultra wide monitor. I picked up the Acer X34 for 600 US (800ish CAD) at a really sweet deal. +1 for sure, nice vid too!

Transient response isn't even noticeable in most cases, and lacking doublers isn't exactly a good thing either. It's still a four phase, a six phase would still have better temps on an overclock because there is less load per phase.

My man, it's still a four phase design that's overpriced to hell. Not a good board in value and performance whatsoever.

Nice build but that ASUS board is a pretty lacking part in your build, being a four phase board that's ridiculously overpriced for it's quality. You can buy much better for less even.

I wouldn't recommend overclocking too high on that chip, that board is just for looks and not for clocks in that 5.0GHz range. Try keeping the voltage minimum at a simple 4.6-4.8.

I'd suggest you check this video out. The only board advertised as that, the Maximus XI Hero, is a four phase.

Nice motherboard, a six phase board to handle a 9900k, better than most ASUS ones on the market.

That motherboard isn't overkill, it's a four phase power design and terrible heatsink on top. Gigabyte's Z390 Master is a six phase and is better built for the 9900k or non k variant as you had said.

Comment reply on janboi's Completed Build: The Extreme First Timer

A few things to note, I would change out that motherboard and CPU cooler. The board is a four phase and a normal ol 9900k would put a lot of load on the VRM's. Something like the Gigabyte Aorus Ultra which is in the same price range would do you so much better and overclocking would be possible. The CPU cooler could be better, a 240/280 AIO or something like the Le Grand Macho RT for an air cooler to cool that chip better.

Nice build but I feel like your money was kinda spent in the wrong place. That motherboard is a four phase board, overclocking would be a bad idea for the health of the processor as you're asking alot out of that measly four phase VRM's. I'd suggest switching to a Gigabyte Aorus Ultra Z390 and getting more out of your chip.

And clearly you don't have an understanding that the guy want's to PLAY games, I've seen this video twice before and won't for the third time because it's not like he's stressing his CPU or GPU to see the accurate temperature. YOU made this conversation pointless.

Comment reply on alphawolftv's Completed Build: First RGB Build

  • 12 months ago
  • 1 point

Dude he's only playing games, it's not like he'll sit there for an hour and benchmark his system just to see the accurate temperatures. Gaming doesn't require a lot of power from a system like that and it definitely would not heat up as much. I dunno why you're talking about water stabilization when not everyone has the time for that and just want a system that performs well in games or just looks good too, since AIO's are more appealing than air coolers.

Nice build, I like how you chose the EVGA CLC 240 and even a hybrid card from EVGA, pretty good stuff thats underrated for not having addressable RGB.

There is a fan on the shroud itself to cool the VRM's and what not, while the AIO cools the GPU die with a fan on that, no need to recommend something when he's getting great temps.

hey man if you save up enough, you can stay on Intel, since the 8500 is a hardcore CPU for it's price. You don't have to stick with one manufacture because the majority says you should, build what you can, build what you want.

My dude, I'm not sure if it's blind fanboyism, but Integrated graphics are all the same. Not to mention buying a 1030 is literally the worst purchase anyone can do considering how bad the card itself is.

Umm, the 2200G is a four core, four threaded CPU that has integrated graphics that are pretty useless if you're not using it. A better choice would have been something like a used 1400 or even a 1600 if possible. Or for Intel's side a used 2600k, albeit it's an old platform, but it's still got juice.

How is the RGB look on that Formula board? noticeable and wild? or calm and collected?

The build is really nice, but honestly I don't see why you could've saved yourself some cash and get the 1080 Ti, ray tracing is nothing but a marketing gimmick for a new way of making games that isn't even in full effect.

Ryzen has this thing called the Infinity fabric that likes RAM that's 3200 mhz to 2666, any slower would be bad, any faster and you've overspent on that area. Intel doesn't really care for RAM all that much but it still has an effect on games and what not, but so does Ryzen on that level. tl:dr, basically buy 3000 RAM at CL15 and you're good. Unless you wanna spend a bit less, then 2666 would be fine

Custom loop.

He said A-I-O, which is not a custom loop. Please check this out and see what I mean with the whole "cooler at longer times" thing means. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sro9zPimbb4

EDIT: I think that was the wrong video, but basically tl:dr, water takes a while to heat up, while an air cooler is quick to heat up. However they both reach the same thermals after some time.

I really like the build you have here, purple is my favorite color and it has a better price to performance ratio than my build that's been updated. However three things: I think it's literally in possible to get that RGB wire to be hidden, hell I even looked at the case in several pictures but no dice. Secondly if you want an AIO, I suggest going over to Corsair if its your first, for that peace of mind. Lastly, if you want to look more a e s t h e t i c a l l y pleasing, I suggest some white sleeved cables. Bitwit used some pretty nice looking green ones on his channel that also come in white, but are pretty stiff. +1
