(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lSEil7cwQ0) Hello, I recently built this system for Gaming, Rendering and just normal day to day activities. The system is stable and everything is going very good.

9700K: Chose it because I like Intel's lineup of processors and this one exceeded my needs. Works very well and stays very cool thanks to my cooler.

Freezer 33 eSports one: Chose it because it was not that expensive and it is the color scheme I needed. It has a TDP of 200 and works really well. Only complaint is the noise, and installation. Other than that it keeps the 9700k at like 30 degrees idle and 50ish while under full load.

Strix Z390-E: Chose it because it was on sale and is one of the most featured boards for the price. Comes with everything you need, including wifi.

MX500 2TB SSD: Chose it because it was not that expensive of an SSD but it gets the job done fast. Definitely an upgrade from a 7200rpm hdd.

WindForce RTX 2080: Got it because it was the cheapest rtx 2080 card with 3 fans, and supports overclocking very nice.

NZXT H500: Got it because it was nice looking and matched the color scheme.

RMx850 PSU: Chose it because it is a nice power supply with a lot of watts and it works really well for now and the future.

Windows 10: Got it because it's the main desktop OS out there and almost all apps run on it.

Thanks for checking out my build, feel free to leave any suggestions in the comments. (Will upload pictures later)

I have not overclocked yet, I will let you know when I do. It keeps it stock at only 30 degrees. It cools really well

On a 5.1ghz overclock, the cooler kept it at 60 degrees under 100% load for 30mins

I can't believe you found a 2TB SSD for that price...

Yeah, it is a pretty good deal considering it has an endurance rating of 700tbw
