Need High End Build Ideas

I'm building this PC Mostly for Overclocking, Gaming and Streaming but want to be able to use editing software when need be. Budget is open for discussion but looking at making a high end machine.
So far i have the Geforce RTX 2080 TI Founders Edition and i9900k processor. These are the parts i already bought months ago and have been just sitting in a closet .
For Motherboard i believe i'm going with the Aorus Extreme Z390, unless someone can convince me otherwise. I need to know what Case(i typically like full towers but open for discusion) RAM , Harddrive, CPU Cooling, Etc; that you guys would add to my build. I've never built a full water cooling rig but i do like the self contained CPU coolers and such. Any ideas to help me speed up this build? thanks in advance.

Welcome to OCN!

Case is really a personal preference thing but I will list a few that I think look nice.
be quiet! Dark Base 700 White Edition
Phanteks Enthoo Pro (or the Enthoo Elite if you like burning money)
Fractal Design Meshify S2

for RAM, G.SKILL TridentZ RGB or CORSAIR Vengeance RGB Pro are good flashy options assuming you want something with blinkenlights to match that motherboard.

Not much new in terms of spinning hard drives, just buy whatever capacity you need. If you don't need a ton of storage, you could go all SSD storage. If you have to have the best NVMe is what you are looking for. Samsung 970 Evo plus is a good option.

CPU cooling... I would stick with high end air or full custom loop... Custom loop is a lot of additional cost and time for designing layout and collecting parts though. My first and last closed loop cooler was a Antec Kuhler that I had on a first gen i7, so some others may chime in with suggestions for CLC's.

Quick suggestions in no particular order but for cases take a look at Phanteks, for the PSU either a Seasonic Focus Plus or a Prime Ultra wattage depends on the config of the other parts
For RAM take a look at Kingston, for HDD´s it depends on your use case and last cooling and forget about CLC coolers they are overrated and overhyped

Welcome to OCN by the way
Edit: almost forgot but NVME is waste of money for gaming its only about a second faster so unless you can find an NVME driver cheaper than an AHCI based drive dont bother

Thanks for the replies guys. This is possibly the build i'm going with(but still incomplete):



Intel i9 9900k
NZXT Kraken X72
Aorus Extreme mobo
Nvidia 2080 RTX TI Founders Edition
2 970 EVO Plus 1 TB SSD

WD Black 6 TB 7200 RPM HD G. Skill TridentZ RGB Series 32 GB 4 x 8 GB DDR4 3200 PC4 25600 Desktop Memory

How big of a PSU and are there any nice looking Full Towers? I might go with Mid but still debating.

Mostly using this system for Gaming and Streaming and some OC'ing but will do some Video/Photo Editing from time to time.

If you want high-end and have money to throw around skip HDDs. You could do like a 500GB M.2 (or 1TB even) and then throw in a couple of 2.5" SSDs depending on how much more storage you want. 1TB SSDs (2.5") are like $100 these days so very affordable. Save yourself space, power and heat.

+1 for Corsair Vengeance RAM.

For me case is too dependent on personal preference to recommend.

Phanteks P600S/Fractal Design Meshify S2 would get my vote for case, and either a Corsair H150i Pro if you want an AIO or Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT/Noctua NHD-15 if you want to go air. If it's in your budget I'd probably skip both and go with an EK 280/360 kit, but $$$.

RAM, just find a B-Die kit from here that fits in your budget. https://benzhaomin.github.io/bdiefinder/

Motherboard I'd say look at the EVGA Z390 Dark.

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%)

Drop the CLC cooler the Noctua NH-U12A is better cooler and its less than half the price

https://www.overclock.net/forum/61-w...lc-cooler.html

As for the PSU it depends on what level of OC you will be pushing but since both the 9900K and the RTX 2080 Ti are massive power hogs i would say about a 750-850 watt

As for the Samsung 970 Evo its a waste of money for pure gaming so you can drop one of them if you wanted it to store games on

Corsair RAM for sure. Been using Corsair all my life and never had a problem with that brand.

If you have unlimited budget, I would do sliger cerebus x and cool it using with something like heatkiller mo-ra setup. Use either noctua a12x25 or arctic f12/p12 bionix as fans, heatkiller tube d5 with aquacomputer d5 next. The setup would enter your pc through an pcie g1/4 bracket (heatkiller sells also) with quick disconnect fittings (x2) at one end of the pcie g1/4 bracket and two qdc internally so you can easily swap parts. CPU block i would so use either the new aquacomputer one or the optimum pc ones. GPU block is heatkiller. Google and you see how people do such as setup. One Mo-ra cools lot of stuff. Would suggest soft tubing. Radiator Fan controller should be an aquereo 6.

Honestly, RAM and NVME brands makes no difference. The lastest generation of high end NVME drives are all so close its really about best deal at the time. Nvme speeds are impossible to fully use unless your file transferring between multiple NVME m.2 drives. RAM its all about is it samsung/micron ram b die and overclocking it. Other hardware i really don't think there is major difference and some of the stuff on expensive mothers are not necessarily useful for you. The key for z390 is power delivery (avoid asus cheap doubler solution) and vrm cooling. Rather invest into the the aesthetic side as thats the stuff you will use longer (for multiple builds) rather than parts as the new cpu's and gpu's in couple years will require new ram, motherboards at the least.
