Description

My most recent completed project. Fully Loaded with an i7-9700K Overclocked at a stable 5.2Ghz and a 2080Ti OC'd +150 on the core and +1000 on the memory. Gets me an overall Time Spy score of 14000+ and runs every game I throw at it at no matter the resolution. At 1080p Gets 400+ FPS on Fortnite on Epic Settings, 120 FPS on Assassin's Creed Orgins at Ultra, and an awesome 148 FPS Average on Division 2 at Ultra. I also livestream with this setup, no capture card and find that it is more than capable of maintaining framerate while Gaming, Streaming, and Recording all at the same time. Highly expensive setup but more than worth it in my opinion. As my 5th custom build in the past 6 months of both AMD and Intel based systems, it is my professional opinion that Intel still holds the lead in gaming no matter how hard AMD tried with its Zen 2. Zen 2 is solid but intel still takes the cake.

Awesome hardware! but may need some attention to cable managing to keep all the attention on the beauty of the components. Otherwise, happy gaming!

Looks good. I ordered that motherboard. Thoughts on it?

I think it is an amazing Motherboard with great overclocking ability. It gets my 9700K to 5.2 stable all day long and never runs hot. I recommend it fully. Its been a great buy for me

Sounds great. I also got a 9700K. I got mine the other day and it looks good. Mainly got this board for two reasons. I/O and rgb. See i my case is the Corsair Crystal 570x. I intend to overclock it on the weekend. Having Wi-Fi & Bluetooth is nice to have when i need it. I didn't make use of the included mini fan simply because my case has a gap everywhere for airflow. Goes well with my Asus Rtx 2070 Super. Hmm. You seems like the right person to ask this. I have 550 watt psu but the recommended psu for my gpu is 650 watt. It's running fine atm as my build uses a approx 454 watts according to Pcpartpicker. Would it be wise to overclock after getting the appropriate psu or it is fine as it is? Edit. Just realized now that we have the same case.... xD

My apologies for the really late reply. I was on vacation out of the country. I wouldn’t do any overclocking without upgrading your psu. Remember the usage estimated by pcpp is a baseline number and under any OC or heavy workload it’s going to use quite a bit more. I would recommend going with at least 750 watts simply because for a few extra dollars you get a large boost in future proofing and upgradability moving forward. Best of luck with your build. The 9700k is a beast lol

No prob. I was already considering picking up a 750w anyway for a couple bucks more. Thank you. I notice the new picture. Cable management looks good. For the usb pump connector try routing it under the the rgb I/O lighting shield behind the gpu in the corner if possible. I also notice your case has a rubber grommet on the psu shroud which i find annoying that mine doesn't have it because i got mine when it first launched. Any recommendations for overclocking software for gpu and cpu? Now that i actually have a decent cpu and gpu i want to try some overclock when i've got nothing better to do on a weekend.

For my setup I use MSI Afterburner for the GPU overclock and I overclock through the Mobo Bios but AI Suite 3 is a great program for overclocking if you'd rather use software for your CPU Overclock. Right now I have my CPU Stable at 5.2 Ghz @ 1.38v and my GPU running at +130 on the core and +1000 on the memory. CPU overclocked usually runs in the mid 70's to lower 80's on temp and the GPU with the overclock runs at between 75-80c when under full load while maintaining a 1965 Mhz Boost or better.
