Build two is slightly better. Both builds are absolutely insanely powerful, tho.however, keep the PSU.

Build one has better single core performance. There are some things you can change though:

  • You do not need aftermarket thermal paste. There is some that comes with the h100i v2 which is probably better.

  • Why do you have such an expensive motherboard?

  • You do not need so much PSU wattage. 750 watts would be enough

Really just depends if the extra CPU cores are needed..

X99 is what I went with and I'm glad I did.
