Jet Strix

by fczero


Plex, Sonarr, Radarr, and maybe some pc gaming ;).

Straight cpu, gpu, mobo upgrade to my existing rig since the significant other is complaining about her G4560 1050 rig. Upgraded her rig with my old parts and got these bad boys. Focused on (mostly) bang for buck components and 144 FPS gaming. I was planning to build a black/white accented build but the black version of the case was the cheapest model. Everything mostly came into place since all of my existing Bitfenix alchemy extensions (5~6-year-old cables) were black. Case cables were all black as well (finally!) and the mobo even had two sata3 cables in black.

Intel i5-9600K coming from a Ryzen 1600 this looked to be the next best upgrade that won't break the bank.

Cooler Master ML240L cheapest 240mm AIO in Microcenter. A bit of a pain to setup since you can damage the rads with the screws since there is no washer/stopper to prevent them from puncturing the fins.

Gigabyte Z390 UD nothing but positive reviews for this one. Can even run a 9900K full speed.

Asus RTX 2080 ROG Strix upgrade from a GTX 1070 and figured this one is easy to resell when upgrade season comes,

a dream to work on; you can finally have everything in a budget mid tower, even that sweet tempered glass panel. Can't do push-pull without limiting the GPU clearance and only 1 fan slot at the top so you can only put a 240~280mm AIO in the front. Still at less than $100 this checks all of my needs.

Thats a heck of a PC for streaming videos on Plex! Well, you shouldn't have any issues, anyways :D

I would recommend flipping the waterblock so the cm logo isn't upside down. Another thing is to remove the caution sticker. Also, I would recommend adding purple aio sleeving to add a little more purple.

Did you plug power into the 8 pin AND 4 pin ATX 12v connections? Or just one of them?

Just the 8 pin

Hey just built my first pc in this case with a Gigabyte Z390 UD. I am having troubles connecting my F-Panel wires and HD audio into the motherboard. How did your connections fit to the motherboard? Thanks
