Recently upgraded my PC to PETG Tubing - Originally I was using ZMT from EK which works really well and you can actually stretch it so it makes nice straight lines and its super safe. Decided to give PETG a go - my first attempt turned out okay, though I did mess a few bends so I used all 2 metres of the tubing in the process. Lucky it's relatively cheap.
- i9-9900K - clocked to 4.7Ghz (more than enough for me) and Heatkiller IV waterblock
- RTX 2080 Ti - EK waterblock
- Gigabyte Z390 AORUS Master ATX
- 32Gb of HyperX Predator DDR4-4000 RAM
- Samsung 970 Pro M.2 NVMe 1Tb Drive
- Custom PETG watercooling with 2 x 360mm Radiators from EK and 9 x Noctua NF-F12 fans - Super quiet!
I run a 1440p Monitor, and generally play PUBG the most, I can easily run 120FPS on Ultra settings.
Cost wise I removed the monitor and peripheral devices so the price is really the maximum you can build this for. 20% off eBay deals are your friend etc, as are reusing parts from your previous builds like sleeve kits, water cooling or PSU. Savings of over $1000 (Australian) could be made by swapping the following parts which shouldn't impact performance much at all:
- 970 Pro SSD for 970 Evo or a 960 Evo (Save $125)
- 32GB 4000Mhz RAM for 16GB 3200Mhz (Save $200 with 3200Mhz and a further $200 by going 16Gb)
- Change the Noctua Fans for a cheaper alternative (Can easily save $150 here)
- Remove the Vision and Fan Controller (Save $230)
- Swap HX850i for CX850M PSU (Save $90)
- Use stock cables (Save $79)
