Description

Update 2 - 26-09-2019 Bought some Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut because i wasn't able to properly OC the i9-9900k with the stock thermal past from NZXT Kraken x62, now, instead of unstable 105º celcius i'm getting 87º, 100% cpu cores used and it's 5.0GHz stable. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdTsra-uLBI

Also got a APC Performance SurgeArrest 8 230v, didn't get an UPS because i don't need the extra time so i can shutdown my pc or finish work. I chose this APC with 2500 Joules protection. Checked this guide and user reviews for this one. https://www.cnet.com/how-to/10-things-you-should-know-about-surge-protectors/

Update 1 - 15-09-2019

I don't care about tempered glass or RGB that much so the case is fully covered and it's bellow my desk. What i wanted was a silent case and the fractal sides have a soft material that isolates sound. Last night i came home and thought the PC was turned off. During idle i couldn't ear anything.

I came from a i5-2500k with a GTX970 and 16gb ram. Only thing i salvaged were the hard drives, monitors and peripherals. Decide to purchase a 3440x1440 ultra wide monitor and since then my PC couldn't handle it properly at native resolution.

So 3 months ago i started to do some research.

Every part was researched. Bought everything based on reviews from youtube, and various other websites saying they were the best parts available considering of course my budget.

I will try to give you the links to them if i can find them again.


i9-9900k - Best gaming CPU. Period. Saw alot of reviews. Was interested in Ryzen 9 3900x and the PCI express 4 but gaming was behind in most titles.

Gigabyte Z390 AORUS MASTER - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lAE3PgWoRc

G.Skill Flare X Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 - Based on userbenchmarks results ocupying 3rd place and based on user reviews as 3200 cl14 the best memory frequency and latency you can get.

ADATA XPG SX8200 960 GB M.2-2280 NVME SSD - Based on userbenchmarks as a 1TB SSD for the price point. A better one was the 970 Evo 1TB in regards to write speeds but 50€ more expensive.

Western Digital Blue 4 TB 3.5" 5400RPM - Based on userbenchmarks and price point for GB.

Zotac GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11 GB GAMING AMP - Rofl, cheapest 2080ti with little OC clocks i could find in my country. :D

Corsair RMx (2018) 850 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX - Based on one of my favorite websites for hardware reviews.

I'm not that great in cable management but i tried my best as you can see in the pictures.

The Cpu cooler was place at the front and the case fans at top since i saw some people saying it works best. But the Cpu cooler is only pull cause i haven't bought additional fans and i don't know if it's worth it.

I also bought some grizzly thermal so i can get started on OC. For now everything is stock.

I will update this the best i can. For now here's userbenchmark with 1080p since i'm streaming from work. 1920x1080p - https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/20150933 3440x1440p- https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/20174176

if looks aren't everything why the aio? you could save some money by getting something like a drp4 and get similar thermals with less points of failure.

Because this one is better, i have checked bequiet drp4 but water cooling is better then aircooling for OC.

If your planning on using for video encoding go for the Ryzen9 3900x, it's 40-60% faster for that purpose, it will be 10% worse for games. I was undecided as well but my main focus was games and mainstream apps like chrome and office tools. The only thing was going to change for that build was, Motherboard: Gigabyte x570 Aorus Master, the thermals on these Gigabyte motherboards are really awesome.

If your not sure yet, then wait for the ryzen 9 3950x coming on November, its 250€ more but it's 32 cores instead of 24. Or if your wallet is not an issue go for the new Threadrippers coming with 64cores and 128cores but those will probably need a different motherboard.

As for monitors i can't really speak. There's this website that has good reviews about monitors https://www.tftcentral.co.uk/ My choice on my Samsung 21:9 3440x1440p monitor was the price. Costed me 390€ on Amazon. which is not usual for these monitors, around 550€.
