I would definitely swap the board for something else but I'm not sure if using a mircoatx board would look good in a full tower case. It may turn off a buyer or may not, can't really say for sure.

Just did some research and I would say ~$400 would be better for it. Not a lot of sales on r/hardwareswap for it though since it is a flagship board so many people aren't buying it and even less people are selling it.

CPU - i9 9900K since it out performs the 3950X when it comes to gaming. Really can't beat it.

Cooler- It ain't the prettiest but you won't get one better performance wise due to how thick the radiator is.

Board - It has one of the best VRM's and it is all around amazing board.

RAM - It is 4000Mhz and RGB. 32GB is plenty and is vast overkill.

Storage - It has 4TB of SSD storage. Also it is NVME AND TLC.

GPU - It has a hybrid RTX 2080 Ti. The RTX Titan isn't worth a extra ~$1000 for a couple more percent of performance. Can't really recommend SLI but it is really your only option if you want any more performance.

Case - One of my favorite cases. It has a amazing airflow due to the mesh front and a ton of room inside. And is a unique looking case that doesn't scream "look at me".

PSU - It has one of the best PSU's on the market. It is 1000W becasue why not. It will be basically dead silent for you and will support whatever crazy upgrades you will do in the future and will last many builds to come . I would definitely recommend getting some sleeved cables.

Efficiency is just that. Efficiency. It does not equal build quality or performance and is no way reflective of how good or bad a PSU is. Yes if a PSU lacks 80+ rating it is a bad sign since it either means that it is using some awful platform or the company is so poor that they can't even pay the ~$1500 required for 80+ to test the PSU but if a PSU has a 80+ rating you really can't judge how good or bad it is by it. Also the 80+ rating actually isn't that good for showing efficiency since the testing is done at room temperature which isn't realistic and units can be under rated such as the Corsair CX which does nearly gold. Plus when it comes to saving money outside of extremes you are looking at a few dollars saved a year, it could take years or even decades to make up the cost of a more expensive unit with higher efficiency.

The CPU Air Cooler i am proposing you is 360 Watt TDP,the price difference is justified,it performs similar to higher in performance AIO LC.

While the cooler is a better choice TDP doesn't define how good or bad a cooler is.

The Motherboard is Great in its Cost.

Yes technically the board is better but its a waste of money for a build like this.

This PCI-E 4.0 NVME ssd,is DAIMN fast,the price difference is justified = The FASTEST,it will last long to your system because is has very big TBW number,it is cooler when operates compared to other NVME SSDs,it is mostly oriented to Gaming,and you can do with such ssd also MANY other works-kinds of use.

No the price difference is not justifed. It doesn't matter how fast it is if you can't make use of it, boot and load times be the same as any half way decent NVME 3.0 drive. You would have to write a stupid amount of data to where about the TBW rating and on top of that you can often go ~10 times greater than the TBW before it dies.

As in previous topic of yours,you did not mentioned your Monitor Resolution and Frequency,so i chose a GPU that can escort perfectly a 1080p 60-75 Hz Monitor.

Why aim for 1080P with a $1000 budget? It isn't 2014 anymore. A $1000 build can easily do 1440P at ~high-max settings at 60FPS.

Alternative + Ready X570 system FAST and Modern,for 1080p 75 Hz Ultra-MAXimum VQ settings in similar Monitor.

The 5500 XT is a very poor choice since it crushed by the similarly priced 1160 Super.

The PSU lacks any reviews and is missing safety protections.

You increased the price by ~$200.

He linked to a spec sheet for the PSU. It would be equalivent asking how good a i7 9700K is and linking to this. It really doesn't tell you anything about how good or bad it is besides basic specs and some of those such as protections can be lied about.

All this did was solidify it is a poor PSU choice since it is missing OTP (over temperature protection) and OPP (over power protection) on top of it having no reviews.

Don't cheap out on the PSU. That has no reviews out for it, Gamdias is really a unknown brand which isn't a good sign, it is missing safety protections. Plus the RGB is pointless since you won't even it.

The PSU will only draw what it needs. If you had a 1600W PSU and the build only needed 300W then the PSU would only draw 300W (although this is assuming 100% efficiency).

Why waste money on a X570 board.

There is zero point in getting a PCI-E 4.0 drive. All you end up with is less storage for the same real world perforamnce when it comes to load and boot times.

The PSU has no reviews out for it. Don't cheap out on it.

Don't cheap out on the PSU. The GD has no reviews out for it. Get a Corsair CX instead or ideally something like a Corsair RMx, Phanteks AMP, or a Seasonic Focus Plus instead.

The board is nice and all but unless you really need a feature it has I would get a B450 Tomahawk max instead and put the money elsewhere in the build.

Get a SSD.

I read is fine that you only need the 4-pins when you are going to overclocked which most probably I won't do

You mean overclocking with LN2 or something. The 8 pin is good for 225W-300W depending on what you read which even the 3950X can't come close to drawing with PBO going full blast, the 3950X will only draw about 150W at the max.

The 9700K can boost up to 4.6Ghz on all cores by itself. Going to 4.0 on all cores would actually decrease performance

You don't adjust the baseclock to overclock the CPU. I mean you can but it can make other stuff unstable such as the RAM.

You should definitely adjust the voltage.

You adjusted the baseclock and didn't stress test. That is a no no. Always stress test to ensure your overclock is stable.

Here is a guide to overclocking.

Honestly just sell the board separately since it is very mismatched for this build and no one is going to want to pay the actual value for it since most people don't need ll of that board and I would swap in a B450 Tomahawk max or a low end X570 board or something like that (get a used board of course). You will get quite a bit more money that way since I would guess $300 or used for that board but value wise all I could towards the cost of build is ~$70-$110.

The build itself without the monitors, mouse, etc as is I would say $850-$900.

That cooler isn't worth $50 and you would be better off with a 3600 instead of a 2700 plus a cooler.

You don't need a X570 board. I really don't think it is worth paying that much extra for the color.

I would get faster RAM. 3600Mhz should cost about the same but if you want white you will have to pay a bit more.

The SSD isn't bad but you should be able to get a NVME drive for around the same price.

WAY too much for that card. It has the same performance as a $220 GTX 1160 Super.

The case lacks tempered glass so the window will start to look rough after a few weeks. Also it lacks a basement so cable management won't be as good.

You don't need a 850W PSU and I see that you are going for a white color scheme but with any decent case it will be covered up.

You don't need a pro copy of Windows.

I would recommend against a Bluetooth keyboard since you really have no need for it at desk unless you really hate wires.

Absolutely do not get that mouse. I'm assuming you are wanting to play competitively due to that monitor and you will get slaughtered using that mouse since your aim will be awful. Mice aren't made equal, far from it. And good wireless mice aren't cheap, think $100+.

Better CPU.

It has faster RAM that is still white.

A better SSD.

A much better GPU. Color scheme is really pointless on a GPU since it will be face down and you won't ever see it.

A much better case that is white and has RGB. If you want you could grab some cheap 5050 LED strip and add to the case if you want some white lighting inside.

It has a similar PSU in terms of quality. 550W is plenty for this build. Added white sleeved cables.

It has a monitor that is "gsync verified" so freesync will work flawlessly with this GPU.

It has a keyboard that is mechanical. And a much much much better mouse, this is one of the best mice for FPS and competitive games. And it just so happens to match your color scheme (although really pointless since your hand will be covering it).

I assumed your budget is ~$1500.

Just curious,but it is a very much reasonable question = Why especially me having negative points in Build propositions,but the most important = Why such SO BIG Contradiction - in general , and NOT in other Build Proposers ? ... Is there ANY special reason, supposing i am also proposing good PC Builds ? ... Am i proposing non-PC Builds as PC Builds ? ... I do not want absolutely an answer,but it is too obvious to be ignored ...

Well I am going to answer anyways since I think it will be for your own good. If you don't want a answer feel free to not read any farther since I am going to be answering your questions.

Why am I contradicting you? Well I call out misinformation and poor part choices when I see it. I've been doing this for years now. When I was more active it is what I was well known for being blunt (although not rude) and calling out misinformation.. OP deserves to know the truth and have the best build possible. Why do I do it a lot to you? Trying to word this kindly, I promise I'm not trying to come across as rude. This is just a very touchy topic that I think needs addressed for your own good so you can improve. Once again I promise I'm not trying to be an *******. Look at your karma, it displays as zero and in reality is well into the negatives since PCPP will only display 0 at the lowest. You are doing something wrong to get into the negatives. And what is that? Well your builds can be a bit controversial due to the part choices and what you type out into your comment explaining the part choices. How can you improve? Well I would honestly suggest listening to the criticism and asking questions about why X is wrong, absolutely nothing wrong with that and incorporating the feedback into your builds. If you do that I believe you have great potential to help tons of people with builds.

Consumers can not review PSU's. They are one of the very few parts that consumer input is generally worthless on since there is no easy way to test it unlike a CPU, GPU, case, etc. Consumers just can't simply review a PSU since it requires opening it up and taking it apart, extensive knowledge about electrical engineering and PSU's, and having expensive equipment to test performance. The first two are doable but the 3rd is what really stops people. Most people don't even own a simple oscilloscope much less everything a place like Tom's uses. Its why most sites and channels either half *** PSU reviews at best or don't do them at all. The reviews that matter are professional reviews from sites like Tomshardware, Techpowerup, Jonnyguru, etc.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/why-99-percent-of-power-supply-reviews-are-wrong/

This is more geared towards websites but it applies to consumer reviews too.

This is everything Tomshardware does to review a PSU.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/how-we-test-psu,4042.html#p1

Also any PSU can be DOA for a variety of reasons that are outside of the manfuckers control. And consumers can be idiots too. Just another reason to avoid them.

Get Focus Plus though.

Actually the BX1 series is not that bad you could of bought a lot worse. They make a RGB version and one without the RGB both the same.

TIL it has a review out for it. But they did test crossload which its fatal flaw. It doesn't matter how good the rest of the PSU is if it is group regulated since it will mean it has poor performance under crossload which is what you see in the real world.

It is a very out dated design that is unsuitable for modern builds. This always makes me LOL PC's have not really changed in the demands on the 12, 3.3, and 5 volt rails and that design worked for years and years with no more explosions than they have today with the so called modern designs.

Yes they have. All of the power hungry parts nowadays use the 12V rail and not much uses the 5V rail and on a group regulated PSU this is a recipe for poor performance since it is what group regulated designs can't handle well. You don't want 11V or 13V going to your parts. You want as close to 12.0V as possible.

This is the proof = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGwEg7px2ko

You do see that it performs worse there right?

It performs almost similar,like some other guys already said = "is getting equal performance at a much lower clock speed means that Intel has some work to do" ... this is the most obvious thing,that Game Testers IN PURPOSE almost always neglect = If we want to test some CPUs,those CPUs must run at the same speed ...

wat. That is not how you benchmark CPU's at all. You run them how they are out of the box or overclock both. You can't just handicap another CPU because it has higher clock speeds. Are people going to downclock their own CPU? I think not.

it is NOT just my opinion,many people are not anymore easily "tricked" from those Intel-paid Game Testers=Gamers, in their personal and their collective consciousness is being awaken already !

Intel isn't paying for benchmarks.

So , considering a possible OC to 4.7 GHZ to 3900X,to match the speed of the 9900K,(can go even higher if needed,if we have a powerful CPU Cooling solution ),i am almost certain that the 9900K will be easily outperformed ...

It is impossible to do a all core overclock on the 3900X and overclocking hurts performance when it comes to gaming. You are best off letting PBO do its thing. It is not true what so ever though, the benchmarks don't lie. The benchmark you even linked to showed the 3900X getting out performed.

When we make a competition,the "starting line" must be the same for both "competitors",that is why the same speed=it is the starting line,it is supposed the competition must be a fair play ...

That is the exact opposite of making it fair since literally no one is going to do that in the real world....

This is a different model,the 140 POWER is NOT the BW , it is a much more powerful cooling solution,see some tests = http://www.dvtests.com/thermalright-true-spirit-140-power-test-review/

That had no comparisons what so ever though.

You are right = There is not such a Motherboard,Gaming Motherboard ... but Gaming-Dedicated Motherboards,such as this ASUS TUF,already exists,it is a different matter ...

???

Yes,you are also right,it is supposed that the system must be manually overclocked via BIOS in XMP operation OR via programming can be adjusted manually or automated,to acquire this 4400 MHZ speed.

Its not a matter of XMP.

https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-ryzen-3000-best-memory-timings,6310-2.html

You will have to adjsut the FCLK, UCLK , and possibly the SoC voltage. This is far from a plug and play solution. And even doing all of that hitting 4400Mhz is going to be very difficult.

Yes again,you are right = There is not such thing as a gaming SSD ... but again,Gaming-Dedicated SSDs,such as this SEAGATE 520,already exists,again it is a different matter ...

???

You misunderstood perhaps ... anyway,the Special Edition was a Case as-requested,in Black-White theme ... Yes again,most people don't need all of that functionality,but why not be better ? In those money,it is too good to be neglected ...

??? The Pro M is the case with the better functionality and comes in the same color scheme.

In order to better implement in Power-Feeding the whole system,especially when OC,it will better to connect the second connector, as an example,a single eps 12 v 8-pin is rated approximately for around 288W,and a single at 144W,IIRC. In simple words,if someone want to better-higher OC their CPU than approx. 288W,or just wants to better-distribute Power in his-her Motherboard,it will be better to connect the extra power connector,and not make his Motherboard overheat from increased Power needs,the Motherboard Manufacturers knows very well what are they doing ... the CPU will not be fried,if the cooling solution is a powerful-strong one,and the airflow inside Case ...

The 3900X draws around 150W max with PBO going full blast. If you manage to need a extra EPS cable it would mean you are pumping absurd amount of voltage through and would be measuring your CPU lifespan in days or hours. Yes they know what they are doing, it is cheap to implement and they can market it for overclocking even though no one outside of extreme overclockers using sub zero cooling would need it. Plus if you do that much power I would not trust the VRM on that board.

The CPU will never fry itself unless you run without any cooler what so ever. First it will throttle and it is still overheating it will do a thermal shutdown. You actually have to try to kill a modern CPU with heat.

The amount of EPS cables has nothing to do with heat on the board...

Do not wonder why,an ASUS TUF Motherboard,with an ASUS TUF 5700XT GPU,will co-operate Perfectly,driver compatibility,implementation,overall stability in operation,etc etc ... the KNOW-HOW in ASUS,is a serious matter,especially in TUF editions ...

That is not how it works at all. That is a myth as old as time itself.

What is this build? What is your budget? I don't feel comfortable giving out any specific part advice since most importantly I have no idea what this build will all be used for and secondly I don't have a budget to work with. I rather not make guesses that may or may not work out for you.

What exact PSU? If you don't list it its going to be treated as a low end unit and you are going to get barely anything towards it.

It is a very out dated design that is unsuitable for modern builds. Group regulated means that it can't out put its full power on the 12V rail and the 12V/5V rail uses one coil and when the load isn't balance i.e high load on one and low on the other aka crossload it has a very hard time regulating voltage which means that voltage regulation on the 12V and 5V can get ugly or even out spec if you push the PSU hard enough. And crossload will be happening all of the time whenever the build is under load since everything that is power hungry such as the CPU, GPU, fans, water pumps, etc all use the 12V rail while not much uses the 5V rail.

Same CPU.

Why the 3900X? It is out done by the i9 9900K.

This CPU Air Cooler,is by Thermalright 360 Watt TDP,imported from US Territory+importing fees-taxes,costs as seen in list. It is more capable than expected,than many other cooling solutions,in the same or bigger price,so no reason buy another Cooler,anyway your CPU is expensive and multi-core,you want to ensure the cooling capability,OC or not your CPU will always remain cool and safe at any reasonable scenario.

TDP rating != how good the cooler is.

This Motherboard is Gaming dedicated,with extremely good Price/Specs Ratio,ask anyone in this site about its capabilities,or in the web,in ASUS area,as you wish,about it,also you may see for yourself,the words are not enough sometimes ...

There is no such thing as a gaming motherboard.

This RAM kit is the fastest available led one available in Canada and compatible with your Motherboard according to its specs,it is a bit more expensive than other RAM kits,but it will accelerate anything inside your system,believe me the high speed RAM kit even help in FPS Gameplay,so giving you an extra "push" in speed is not wrong.

This will actually be worse than a 3600Mhz kit without doing manually overclocking.

https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-ryzen-3000-best-memory-timings,6310-2.html

This especially PCIE 4.0 NVME ssd,is Pure Gaming dedicated one,and it is one of the fastest available single-unit ssd ,it is not in 1 TB capacity,as many other NVME ssds,but it will give you the fastest OS start,almost all operations in the system will be run almost at once,generally this one will give you an "edge" in performance,the goal here was to give you speed-performance boost,not capacity,the Capacity is affording the HDD,for entering OS and all necessary programs is more than plenty,and still will be remain a small amount of unused storage capacity in it.

There is no such thing as a gaming SSD....A 4.0 PCI-E drive is a MASSIVE waste of money since it will not perform better at load and boat times than a PCI-E 3.0 drive and even a SATA SSD for the most part. You are getting performance you will never use and half of the storage space.

This Case especially is a Black-White theme one,and it is the Special Edition,in this price especially,it offers TOO MUCH,it is a quality one,with too good airflow,also the view from inside will be awesome after Built in the components,also is very easy in Built,generally you can do almost anything reasonable with such a Case,it will surpass your needs,and it is cheaper than other advertised quality ones.In occasion you do not believe me,ask other people who already have this Case,or similar no-special editions,to tell you how pleased they are,here in this site,in the web,anywhere you want.

The case doesn't anything particularly good nowdays. In fact the Pro M is a better all around case since it can hold more fans, HDD's, better custom loop support, etc despite being smaller. And even then most people don't need all of that functionality.

This PSU,with those specs,with two EPS connectors,at this wattage,and at this price,is a must have,it will cover you in almost all conditions (except SLI this GPU),including further upgrades,OC,etc ... it is not a led one,but this is a quality one.

You will fry the CPU if you actually need more than one 8 pin EPS cable.

Also,it will co-operate Perfect with your ASUS TUF Motherboard.

I asked a good computer friend and said that this message below could mean that the motherboard and PSU won't like fully fit and I've tried new PSU and motherboards

wat

what do you think this could mean?

It means exactly that. The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6.0 Gb/s port is disabled. If you use the #1 M.2 slot a SATA port will be disabled.

Get a new monitor if your budget is that big.

Nearly all aftermarket cards have better coolers on them though. Outside of doing a custom loop I really can't see any reason why to get a Founders card over a aftermarket one since the Founder card has one of the worse coolers on it.

That is really up to you and how much you value cooling vs. noise.
