Description

So, I've been a console gamer my whole life. I've dreamt about having a pc good enough to play games more than website games since I was a kid but it's always felt like such a distant goal. Watching pc youtubers and streamers was my vice. I would only hope those games they played would eventually come to xbox, so I too could experience what they do. But I've missed out on so much because I never thought I could see myself dropping $2000 on a pc. But I was so wrong...... About 2 years ago I stumbled upon this site and starting looking at builds, configuring builds, learning as much as I possibly can while drooling over everyone's masterpieces. At one point I felt like I've mastered the art of putting together well rounded parts lists and felt comfortable recommending parts, with details of why they should do so. But, I was still missing the experience of doing it myself. So around Black Friday 2018 I bought my first few parts, it felt great. But also around that time income started to become an issue and I ended up delaying building my pc before Christmas. So I was keeping up to date with the rtx 2060 launch and I bought it the day of release. So glad I waited! Around 3 weeks ago I bought my last part and build my pc. And even after watching hundreds of build guides it was still terrifying! But everything just fell into place after hours of confusion. I've finally accomplished my dream. But there are definitely some minor things I wish I had done differently, which are kind of annoying (first build problems I guess). First of all, coil whine..... My GPU is so loud while playing games I can hear it through my headset and my friends can hear it too. Just a constant buzz when under any type of load. Msi afterburner wont launch for some reason saying its side by side configuration is incomplete or something like that. The blitz software to control the lights on my ram wont launch because it doesn't recognize any team group modules. And well just in general my pc is loud af. But all that aside everything is as great if not greater than I expected. I get around 200fps in most games high/ultra settings. No overclock as of yet. Everything is seriously so sick. But, reccomend if getting pc fans/aio get nzxt or corsair....

I really like your build, maybe because it is similar to mine except i have a 1080ti and a z370 msi motherboard. Just a quick question, why a z390 and not a z370 motherboard? +1 on the build

Appreciate it. Excuse the crappie photos though, it looks much better in person. 2 reasons on why I got a z390 over a z370. 1, I was first planning on getting a 9900k and changed my mind last second after buying the motherboard months before. 2nd, the only z370 I wanted was $30 more and the aorus pro was just the better option. Great motherboard!

Don't be too hard on yourself, the photos are very good and the aorus pro is a good motherboard. Cheers mate

hey spectacular build +1, i have the same CPU cooler and basically the same mobo except its the PRO WIFI version. I cant seem to figure how to get the rgb functions for the MasterLiquid to sync with the Aorus pro i've downloaded all the "compatible" systems such as: AURA SYNC, MSI Mystic light and RGB FUSION but the cooler doesn't seem to pop up on the screen when i open the feature. Maybe its because of a RGB wire i didn't use? i found a RGB cable that i thought i didn't need but maybe i do, it splits into 2 cables labled: ASROCK, ASUS, MSI and the other side GIGABYTE. Maybe thats is the reason the cooler isn't showing on on the screen? thanks for any advice you give me, have a nice day.

Hey, sorry for the late response. You need to download Cooler Master Masterplus RGB software to change it. If the rgb controller doesn't pop up when you start the software unplug and replug the usb connector for it.
