I built this PC as a replacement to my other build "ROG went ITX" which had a 9600K and a 1070Ti. While it was a great build I was seeking something more. I needed to go fast. This new PC is an upgrade in every aspect from my last one. I am very pleased with how this build turned out. Building this computer was very simple despite all of the components being super expensive. I am only a freshman in high school so I was very nervous. This computer is a beast, I currently mainly use it for gaming and schoolwork and it easily crushes all of those tasks.
Sorry for potato camera I have no money left after building such a PC.
I went for the i9-9900K because of the fact that it had 8 cores and 16 threads. This is pretty much the high-end must have in 2019/2020 especially considering you can get an 8 core Ryzen chip for under $200. The other, more important reason why i went for this chip is because it can easily OC to >5.0 GHz. This is going to be really useful in my flight sim of choice, X-Plane 11.
I picked up the NZXT Kraken X62 CPU cooler because I wanted something that could adequately cool this hotboi 14nm chip.
I went for the Z390-E because it had good features and was on sale for only $199.99. Not to mention it is the same brand and design as my GPU.
I already had a 16GB kit of this Trident Z RGB RAM and loved it so I decided to double up and get another one of the exact kits. Now I have 32GB of ram. Yay.
I had this SSD from my last build. Its a little small for the standards of today so maybe I will upgrade to a 1 or 2 TB drive.
I just reused this HDD as well. It is pretty simple. Don't really like the idea of having a mechanical drive in 2019 so I might get a 2TB SATA SSD to replace it.
I went for the ASUS Strix 2080Ti because it was on sale for black friday. I was about to get the EVGA Black 2080Ti for $1069.99 but decided to go for this for only a little more. Let's just say I am blown away by the performance. It blazes through everything at 1440p 155Hz while staying chilly. Have yet to try RTX.
I got the NZXT H510 Elite because I always loved the ease of use and simplicity of the H500 but wanted something a little more flashy. This was right up my alley. And I got it on sale for $129.99 so that is nice.
I got this PSU because it is from a reputable brand and can supply enough juice for the build. It was also on sale.
I got these two Aer fans to match the front fans in the case.
This S2719DGF has amazing looking colors for a TN panel. I also got it on sale and it is running great :))
I went for these 3 peripherals because I am a Logitech fanboi and they are all nice as expected.
All in all I am super ecstatic about this beast... I gotta hurry up and finish this so I can get back to some ROBLOX.
Awesome 8 Cores and 5.0GHz or more.
Looks great and easy to install.
Good features, good aesthetics, good VRM, good all around.
Very nice colors. Has been reliable for a year so far.
Really fast and reliable.
A force to be reckoned with. Just wish it wasn't so expensive.
Looks super nice. Easy to build in. -1 for build quality, everything just kind of felt cheap.
