This is my first REAL build.
The NZXT Kraken X62 is a superb AIO cooler. Does a fabulous job and is very quiet.
The H500i is a beautiful case. No regrets there.
Going from 16GB DDR3 at 1500 MHz to 32GB DDR4 at 3000 MHz is a night and day difference.
My favorite part of this build is the Samsung 970 Evo SSD. M.2 NVME is unbeatable. My last PC took 5-10 minutes to load Windows. Now with the 970 Evo it loads in just seconds.
In my opinion -- the best CPU for gaming available. 9900k is just not worth the extra money.
Looks great, basically no noise whatsoever, and keeps the 9700k at great temps.
Definitely should've gotten a better MOBO for my build but this seems to do the job just fine right now. Probably the first thing I will upgrade at a later date.
Really good ram for the money. 3000MHz is a huge improvement over 1500 if you're looking to upgrade from that.
You need to get one of these (or even a lower capacity 970) to boot windows from. Period.
Looks great, but I wish the CM options were a little better.
No noise whatsoever. Fabulous PSU.
