Looks like a really good build to me.
I went for the 9700KF, because i've heard the 9900k can become pretty hot.
But with good cooling that shouldn't be an issue.

If you don't need the iGPU you might wanna look into a 9900KF maybe? Since it probably runs less hot.

I seriously doubt that.
For stock clocks, maybe it would be barely enough, but whats the point in getting a K if not for overclocking. Even top end air coolers have a seriously hard time cooling an out of the box 9900k.
Even pushing 4.7Ghz all core can get you to about 200W of package draw which is damn hard to cool even by an NHD15 or other top end coolers and lets not forget that the SIHS is crappier than a relid with liquid metal.

@twerk
If you're getting the top end 9900K, make sure you get a top end CPU cooler too. Don't settle on a mid range NH-U12A. You'll be better suited with a D15 or a Dark Rock Pro 4 and it won't even make that much of a budget difference, given you're going top end components on pretty much everything else.
Content creation will also push that CPU to higher loads for longer periods of time and you'll need all the cooling you can get for it.

C2D 6750 -> C2Q 6600 -> C2Q 9550 -> i7 2600k -> i7 8700k -> i9 9900k
8800GT -> 8800GTS 512 -> GTX285 -> GTX480 -> GTX580 -> GTX780ti -> GTX980ti -> GTX1080ti

Skip to 8.45 for proof and the NH-U12A is not a mid range cooler you are confusing it with the NH-U12S



The NH-U12A is a better cooler than the H100i and the H150i it cost less make less noise doing it and have less parts to go wrong and wont leak so all around much better

...looks like a very good spec While the Noctua CPU fan is among the very best air cooler, I would consider a good 360 AIO (case space permitting) for the 9900 which are known to run quite toasty / hot; s.th. like a Corsair H150i pro may be...of course, than the 2080 Ti might complain about not getting liquid cooling

In any case, I have had some direct comparison wit an oc'ed 5960X (8c/16t) and H150i pro and can highly recommend it.

I've got the lesser H115i Pro and it handles my 9900K perfectly fine. If you want an AIO, look into the H115i/H150i Pro. If you want an air cooler, look into the NH-U12A or NH-D15.

Any thread that mentions the words "AIO" shilka will come in guns blazing

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%)

If you're gonna showcase the rig, go aio. If you dont care about looks then get the air cooler (a little more hassle free as well). Both can handle the job fine, but one looks ugly as hell.

Haha I could bet you were gonna bring up this video from Linus. I was actually searching for it to reference it in my post but gave up because I was making a different point.
I know that CLC coolers are not great and I agree with what you're saying about the U12A being better than those CLCs, however, my point was entirely different.
The NH-U12A is by no means a top of the line cooler. Its part of Noctua's mid range coolers designed to bring very good performance in a 120mm form factor. The 9900K needs as much cooling as you can give it and you either go with top of the line air coolers, like I mentioned, or full custom water loop, to be actually worth the temp improvement over air. CLCs are complete rubbish and AIOs are somewhat better but much more expensive and at this point, might as well go full custom water.

Might be worth considering Fractal Meshify-c since you are running some very hot components. Not that the define C is terrible for airflow, but the meshify should perform a little better.

@shilka

I don't understand English, but, if i am not mistaken, at 2min24sec Linus says ninety-seven hundred kay, that is, I think he is using an i7-9700K. Is it right? If so, then the review is pointless for my first question. By the others reviews I have seen, U12A seems too weak for an i9-9900K. Take a look: http://www.silentpcreview.com/forums...610150#p610150
