New build recommendations.

I haven't put together a system for several years. My last (current one) needs replaced:
I currently have a Gigabyte GA 970A, 32 GB, AMD FX-8370 Eight-Core Processor 4000 Mhz, AMD R9 390x,
POS HDD @7200.
I mentioned I was going to be building a new gaming system and a friend of mine sent me some
specs HE recommended. Normally I'd spend a few weeks researching compatibility, performance vs
cost, etc, but we're going through some medical issues in the family and I'm not going to have time
for many conversations with Professor Google.
If I can, I'd like opinions of this:
AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
CORSAIR HYDRO Series H100i PRO
ASUS Prime X470-Pro
G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 32GB
Crucial MX500 1TB
GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2080
NZXT H700i
EVGA Supernova 750 G3, 80 Plus Gold
-------------------------
As I said, I would prefer to research on my own since I get a kick out of every part of
the "I'm gonna get a faster/better/funner system" but I can't afford the time.

Drop the H100i and either buy a good air cooler or a real AIO kit from EK or Swiftech

Second while the G3 is not bad it has a problem with noise when used in eco mode

The Seasonic Focus Plus is a better option and you dont need a 750 watt for that system

I wouldn't buy the Asus Prime X470 Pro at current pricing as it has no debugging features or BCLK.


For ~ $15 more you can buy the Asus ROG STRIX X470-F Gaming which has BCLK and the debug lights as well as stronger powerstages.


You can shave money from the cooler and get an aircooler that has capabilities on par with a 240 AIO. For example, the:
$45 Thermalright ARO-M14G (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07C3KSHZR/) ,

Thermalright Macho Rev B for $50 (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PKJ21LW/) ,

$50 Thermalright True Spirit 140 Power (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IYEEOMO/),

$52 Scythe mugen 5 rev B (https://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=FAN-MG5100) ,

$79 Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 4 (https://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=FAN-BK022)



The NZXT case you chose supports 185mm CPU coolers.

AWESOME suggestions. I'm not 100% comfortable with water-cooled yet since I've never built one. I was going to bite the bullet and try it, even though the thought of water+electricity doesnt thrill me lol.

Those closed liquid coolers are overrated overhyped overpriced loud and unreliable are you are better off with a good air cooler or an AIO kit from EK or Swiftech
I have had 5 of them and all of them had problems where loud mediocre and died within a year

Pretty sure whatever weenie calls an AIO loud hasn't used an AIO in a decade. H100 GTX is loud but it's from 2009. H150i/H115i/A80 caliber AIOs are not loud.

Air is great and a good one will perform similarly to a (good) AIO. Get whatever you like OP. I went from high end air to an AIO to high end air and back to an AIO and they're both fine.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)
Intel i5 6400 Skylake @ X4 4588mhz (+69.9%)
2 OP pls nerf
