Ahhh okay. Thank you.
Well, I do have protection for lightning strikes and god I hope it doesn't get stolen because I do live in a very good neighborhood, but I understand your point. My reason for even looking into this is because the price has dropped by 25 dollars and may even drop more.
When doing heavy workloads, I usually have about 3-4GB remaining. I understand that is still a decent amount but more RAM would future proof and new coding programs I may use in the future that use a lot of resources. I also figure, purchasing the RAM sooner rather than later would remove and issues such as, different manufactures for the stuff inside the memory itself. Just little things, I suppose.
If you're strictly doing photo editing, there is no need for Hz over 60. As the other person had mentioned, the best IPS and maybe even a higher resolution is your absolute best bet. In my opinion, 4K IPS 60Hz would be the best you could get. Images would be more clear and the IPS would give you better color accuracy when editing. Most of the reasoning behind getting more Hz is to update the screen faster and 'see and enemy before they see you' type thing. Also, since it updates more frequently, it will provide smoother game play provided your system can keep the FPS up and stable to around or above the Hz.
Also, the system was just built in the end of December. So I feel like they would be producing nearly the identical memory stick.
This system is already purchased. I'm familiar with CAS latency and timings. I will be buying the same exact kit. That's why I'm so confused about what the big difference is. So many different answers.
This system is already purchased.
So you're saying 4x8GB kit rated at 3000MHz is better than two IDENTICAL 2x8GB kit rated at 3000MHz?
Found On Forum
The main things you need to watch out for are channels, CAS latency and other timings, and speed.
Motherboards have a lot of flexibility in how they can operate, but one specific design is that there are usually two "banks" for the memory. Within each bank, there must be at least two channels, they must be the same speed, and they must have the same internal timings. It is often a requirement that both sticks also have the same capacity, so you can't mix 4GB with 8GB in a bank (but you could do so between each bank).
It's nothing crazy, but if I want to use InteliJ, surf the web, VOIP programs, and maybe test games or programs.. it can be a lot. Thank you for the input.
Again, I am not sure. I'm just saying to make sure you do your research on the motherboard and chip compatibility. Also, I really recommend the 2.5 SSD over the M.2 so you're able to get a better GPU and be able to run more frames especially since you want to game at 1440p. Obviously, the CPU plays a factor in this as well but GPU is very important as well. I only play at 1080p so I'm able to run most games like COD: WWII at 100fps on highest settings.
You will need to update BIOS in order to use Z390 chipset. For example, i5-8600K goes with Z370, while i5-9600K goes with Z390. If I am correct.. that means if you want the i5-8600K, you will also need a i5-9600K just to update the BIOS and make your motherboard able to support the i5-8600K. Unless you're going to be doing big file transfers, I would get an SSD 2.5, not a M.2. Save money and loading speeds are very similar. Also, what is your use with this computer? Gaming, Video editing, etc. ??
8600K.. relatively cool CPU - air cooler. 8700K.. relatively hot CPU - AIO. Also, the air cooler was cheaper and I liked the look of that bulky monster. Air cooler is easier to clean in my opinion as well, but much harder to install compared to AIO. What's your specs?
To add to what he has said, have you recently upgraded a part in your PC? Overclocked or changed voltages in the BIOS?
Does the LED light on your monitor go out when your screen goes black or does it stay on? If it stays on, then it's not the monitor, it's something within your PC. Most likely the GPU..
The fans itself cost more than some people's builds.... incredible.
I am afraid to do it for too long? Stress testing for too long won't do anything bad to my parts, will it?
Ran test for 15 min and nothing popped up.. I'm relatively new to this stuff
I have had no problems so far and managed to OC to 180Hz with no gray line that many complain of. Overall, great monitor for my uses. Can be bright so I use the gaming mode to reduce stress on my eyes.
Keep the 8700K, the 9600K is not worth it.. look it up if you don't believe me.
If you want to stream, 8700K for sure. And that GPU will easily push 144FPS for both titles at 1080p.
Replaced a bunch of things:
- Better CPU for gaming, multi tasking and much more, 12 threads
- Need 2 RAM sticks to get full potential
- Better air flow case
- Better PSU
- Monitor with lower refresh but G-Sync for smoother gameplay. Not sure what your needs are though so you can switch to the monitor if need be.

Although that AIO may be good at cooling, just know that the software used to operate it has been known to use resources that it shouldn't. This is what I came up with though.
Thank you very much. I will be posting this build with pictures around Christmas time. Monitor will take until Christmas to come in unfortunately.
We will see if I can squeeze the money out
Is it worth the extra 15$ compared to the i5-8600K
I don't have a budget for the RTX cards of the 9000 series CPUs
So 12 SATA Powers? Each chain can power an SSD or HDD
So then could I get a 650 and have 6 SATA powers?
Well, I'll probably have 1 SSD, 1 maybe 2 HDD, and the 1 Fan Hub.. that's 4 and the RMx I only see 4. What if I get another SSD?
It was a joke, bro. Chill out.
He's trying to save you some money.. lol
Thank you very much for that. I appreciate that a lot.
If you really want good temps and airflow, then do a rad on the front with a push pull method.
I just want the CPU to last, do you think that letting it run hot will effect lifespan?
It's depends on temps, I want more but not anything too hot.
Delidding voids the warranty.. that's the only thing I'm afraid of.
Can I use liquid metal on Corsair 115i Pro?
8700K to at least 4.5 on all cores. Maybe more depending on temps
Is there better thermal paste?
Okay.. Thank you.
There was a video posted but I can not remember who posted it, but he did extensive tests and a rad mounted at the front with a push configuration was the most efficient.
There is going to be a bottle neck with the CPU but nothing crazy. If you overclock the CPU then the bottle neck will be much less.. that's assuming you don't OC your GPU.
You'll have to change mobo and increase price decently.
So say I am playing a game, turbo clock to 4.6 and overclock to 4.6. What is quicker?
Black and Read Build
Obvious black and red theme.. AIO, plenty of airflow, fan hub, quick storage, fast GPU and CPU
The difference is a matter of give or take 5 degrees C
Push AIO in the front of the case is typically the best orientation. With exhaust on the top and rear of case.
