Description

Used for gaming and general use. When putting the prices together I didn't realize how much money I had into it. Didn't buy everything at once so don't really feel the money spent plus I sold my other computer for $900 minus the PSU, graphic card, monitor, keyboard and mouse.

Added Forgot to mention the desk. It is an Uplift electric sit/stand. Really happy with it. Had to call customer service once and they were very helpful. Image with the yellow/gold lights are when gaming I set Corsair ICUE to change color as temperature changes.

The computer you can kind of see on the floor is the one I sold to a guy at work. Same case as I am using now.

Part Reviews

CPU

Very happy with my CPU. I have it overclocked to 4.9 GHz at 1.265V with turbo LLC. Under gaming load it is in the low to mid 60's. Could do 5.0GHz but I like to keep my temps under 70C.

CPU Cooler

Expensive but looks cool with the ML120 RGB fans with my case and is keeping my CPU cool and quiet.

Motherboard

Great motherboard but software isn't very good. Took off a star for that.

Video Card

Hybrid keeps the GTX-1080 cool.

Case

Love this case, my favorite case I have ever owned. Will most likely go a custom water loop in the near future.

Headphones

This is the 2019 version, sound is still a bit low but not as bad as the older version. I had those but returned them. I built a computer for a friend for his wife at Christmas and this was his way of paying me. Very happy with these.

Neat build +1, how is the cpu cooler?

I like the cooler. I really got the 360mm because I like how it looks in this case. I think my old EVGA CLC280 would keep the temps about the same to be honest.

Very nice build. The O-11 Dynamic is hard to not make a sexy set up with.

Nice, what are your CPU temps?

Gaming in BF V the CPU averages around 59C - 62C. The GPU is even cooler at around 50-52C. Most likely because of the bottom fans blowing cool air on it. This is with a room temp of around 21-22C. Using Realbench stress test high was 76C. Average around 72-73C,

Hey, I have a question for you, I have a 550 Watt power supply with a 1080 gtx card, should i go higher of a power supply if i get 6-9 fans and a cpu water cooler?

I would get at least a 650 watt PSU. There is a PSU calculator online. Just enter what you have in your computer and it will let you know what wattage you need for your PSU. I believe Corsair has one and a couple of other sites. Google PSU calculator and you will find it. It also depends on the quality of your PSU. You don't want to go cheap on a PSU.

Hi,

I have been looking at the Gigabyte Aorus z390 ultimate for my build also. I contacted Gigabyte support as the Corsair Vengence Pro RGB arent listed in QVL as supported. Same goes for Corsair's website... when I select that board the Vengence RGB pro's don't show up. So you had no problem enabling xmp and having them be recognized as 3200? I don't want to drop 350$ on 32 gb of ram and have them not work with this board at full speed.

Thanks!

No problems with mine. I have the Ultra though but should be the same for the Ultimate. Mine are Samsung B-Die which could be why I had no problems. Samsung B-Die seems to be the most compatible with any build. Worst comes to worst you can always return the memory kit but I don't think you will have any problems.
