Build Advice Requested

Hey all,

Been awhile since I did my last build. Played around with pcpartpicker to come up with a first iteration. I kind of want to stay away from water-cooling, other than that I am open to suggestions. Please see link here: ( https://pcpartpicker.com/list/JrdrPn ). Does anyone see anything wrong, that seems off, or can be improved upon without increasing the budget?

Much Appriciated and Thanks,

You dont need a 1000 watt PSU and there are much better options than the EVGA G1+ such as the Seasonic Focus or Prime or its Asus/Antec/Phanteks rebrands
What are you going to be using this system for if its gaming dont bother you can get a faster system far cheaper and i second ditching the RGB fans

Also why do you 960 Pro´s in there they have been replaced by the 970 and Samsung NVME drives are an overpriced ripoff and you can get drives almost as good far cheaper
And last the monitors you picked uses TN panels so the color reproduction and viewing angles sucks and there are far better monitors on the market

Hello,

Thank you for the prompt replies, please see below:

Noted and removed.

Swapped to the Seasonic Focus Prime as suggested.

Swapped for the 970s for now as suggested, but in place of this, what would you suggest?

What would you suggest for a monitor that might be a better replacement? I saw the same info regarding TN when I was adding it, but a bunch of people said they were very impressed with it even though it used TN? I am open into swapping out though, do you have a few suggestions around the same price point?

Again, thanks for the input. Much appreciated.

Again is this a gaming build or a workstation or what will it be used for?
Do you have any work load or task that can even use a 24 core CPU? if not you can save a ton of money and move to an X570 motherboard and a 3900x or 3950x

As for the Samsung 970 like i said way overpriced and any of these are almost as good and way cheaper
https://www.overclock.net/forum/355-...2-toshiba.html

The best 1440P high refresh monitor out right now is the LG Gl850 which cost more than what you picked but if you move to X570/3900x-3950x instead and ditch the Samsung 970 you can save a ton of money which you can spend on the GL850 which is just far better

Also note that the MSI Gaming X is super long at 32,7cm and is one of the longest if not THE longest card on the market
Edit: almost forgot 128 GB of RAM is also massive overkill for almost anything you can throw at a PC unless its super heavy work loads and tasks or you are going to make a RAM disk

Oh boy, There are a lot of things to take into consideration:

Change those samsung ssds , there are a lot of cheaper and as good options out there, if you are gaming 75% of the time then a 3950x is a much better option, No need to go over 32GB at all (Even 16GB) unless you know you need the 128GB for some specific workload.

Not going with a custom loop at this price point is very hard to swallow and would recommend the D15 if you really want to go with air cooling as I remember reading it was the only viable option for "TR", Seasonic prime titanium is a must at this price point + the mobo can be upgraded.

Monitors would be discussed but for now lets call them a place holder

Hello,

Thank you all for the feedback, much appreciated as I try and regain understanding of whats going on again, I have made some revisions, I have not swapped out the m.2s yet, I think thats next on the list. I changed the ram out for RAM thats a little faster, but maybe too cheap and do you think I should step down the power-supply still? Also swapped the monitors for the suggested, see below link:

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/fpWyZf

Also do you think a O11DXL-1 would be good as well to reduce strain on the board, or is that a non-issue?

Thanks,

Hey,

Sorry about that. So basically it will be a mixed usage. I have a large media server that will be running on it with maybe 1-2 users concurrently at most times where trans-coding may be taking place. In the off time being utilized for gaming.

Thanks,

EDIT: I swapped out the RAM for less, just had 128GB for starting, I swapped for a faster speed and less size.

Alright so its work loads where a 24 core CPU and 64 GB RAM is actually useful?
You dont need thermal paste by the way there is some included with the CPU cooler

And did you double check that the RAM you picked can work with the motherboard?
If you go to the MSI website and look up the motherboard you can find a RAM compatibility list
