Description

I finally have a build I feel is worthy to post! I mainly use this rig for After Effects and Cinema4d, although it is used regularly for gaming aswell.

Part Reviews

CPU

Price is a bit higher than I feel it should be but over all the performance is solid, it runs cool and makes a huge difference in render times.

CPU Cooler

I’ve been running this cooler for years over multiple upgrades. It’s a solid AIO with decent fans and a quiet pump.

Motherboard

What can I say, it’s the only z390 mobo with thunderbolt 3 and I like it’s looks.

Memory

The price listed is the current retail. I purchased this used for $120 right before the peak of the ram shortage. Overall it’s been solid, but I’d probably buy a faster speed at the current prices.

Storage

Has this guy for a while. It’s just a scratch disk and holds some games. It’s cheap and has adequate performance.

Storage

This drive is speedy, right between a 970 evo and a 970 pro, but the price is usually cheaper than both of the former.

Storage

This is my main game and project storage drive. It’s crazy fast for the price.

Storage

Large capacity, decent speeds, holds my Plex server, and serves as long term storage before my data is moved to tape.

Video Card

Great looking card. It provides all the Speed I need for 60hz 4k gaming, and fast 3d renders.

Case

This case is awesome. I love all the extra little features like the led strip and fan controller. I would recommend using a sfx power supply if you are using a dedicated gpu. I had a rm850x in here before and there was not enough air flow for my gpu. Now that I switched to sfx, cpu and gpu temps never rise above 65c

Power Supply

Decent psu, seems to reliably provide enough power for this rig. Gold earring is nice but I don’t think this psu is anything special.

Monitor

Solid monitor for the money. Good color reproduction and it runs in gsync due to its freesync capability.

Did you update any drivers in order for the monitor to be compatible with the NVidia card?

Nice build I had the P1 as well but not compatible with my MOBO. I was busting my headwhile I was not registering. I had to check their vendor specs for it, that's how I found out it was incompatible. So I had to send it back to Newegg and replace it. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/T83bt6

it runs cool? hahaha lol. I doubt its 45c under load. install AIDA64 w/FPU /Prime95, and run for ~30m. temps will go past 80. https://www.techspot.com/review/1744-core-i9-9900k-round-two/

Typo on my part. 65 would be a closer number under a nonsynthetic load.

Great build! I was wondering where you bought your graphics card, because I keep looking for places to buy an RTX 2070 Founders Edition, but I can’t seem to find any reputable sites. Thanks

NVIDIA's site would have been the best place, it's still the best place to buy a 2070 Super now that they have replaced the 2070.

Hi, I am getting the message "Note:Unable to verify the NZXT H200i Mini ITX Tower Case has sufficient mounting depth to support the Corsair H100i PRO 75 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler 240 mm radiator."

I just wanted to double check with you that the cooler fits properly on this mITX tower.
