Hydroplane The X62 should work fine for 9900K at 5 GHz

NVME is only about a second faster when it comes to game load times

Yeah i know but i also do some VM work and other stuff as well, otherwise i already have a 250gb crucial and another 500gb ssds. Other then that, getting rid of some cables(i also have a 2TB HDD that i'll transfer over) and i'll fully get rid of my last mechanical drive when the 2TB SSDs drop to the floor price wise.

Complete list is something like this:

i9 9900k
Asus Z390 Maximus XI GENE
G.Skill TridentZ 4266mhz C19 1.4v (F4-4266C19D-16GTZA, it is in the QVL list)
Corsair RM850x
NZXT Kraken X62
NZXT H400
Adata SX8200 Pro 256GB M.2 NVMe
Adata SX8200 Pro 1TB M.2 NVMe
GPU Will be a transfer from my current rig: EVGA GTX1080Ti FTW3

Although I'd still go with Noctua D15 equivalent . Why not reusing your current watercooling kit? It has way more cooling capability than X62 with 280mm rad.
Yeah i know but the form factor limits me. 360mm rad can be replaced sure but then there is the huge reservoir that i got it from a friend back then, then new hoses,...etc. list adds up to almost exactly the price of X62. And there is the spacing inside case problem. H400, GTX1080Ti FTW3, small spaces,...etc. X62 seemed more logical. I plan on keeping the old system, if i get some funds, i may swap cooling solutions all together with a new thick 240/280mm rad, small reservoir,...etc.

Nice to hear i made a good choice from your X60 experience. I was between Corsair H115i RGB PRO but the naming alone put me off even though both of them asetek products.

As for cases do you have Phanteks where you are from?

I found one Focus Plus 850W 80+ but it is 38$ more expensive than Corsair RM850x.

My other options are:

- RM750x (26$ cheaper than RM850x)
- FSP Hydro G 750 (17$ cheaper than RM850x)
- FSP Hydro G 850 (only 6$ cheaper than RM850x)

Jonny has a good review on the RM850x albeit it is the white version of which i don't know if it matters. So, i'm leaning towards the RMx series. My current system has Corsair TX850 which served me well but i dislike Corsair as a company i don't know why. Btw, do you think 750w is enough when both the 5ghz 9900k and slightly overclocked 1080Ti FTW3 are on full load ? I saw something like 1080Ti alone pulling 400+ watts.

CPU is pretty regurarly at 64C in those games which are CPU heavy. I normally see about 50% utilization in those games on the 9900K and see 64c. Idle temps are sometimes down to 29c. I haven't seen it hit 80C on that cooler in ANY game yet. I *think* i may have seen a spike to 72c.

Just to run a quick test (I'm RDP'd into my home PC) with a light test, i ran the CPU-Z benchmark to stress it to 100% and the cores spike to 68-71C (I ran it for like 20s), they'd climb from there depending on heat saturation of the water, and how good your airflow is, and also depending on a heavier AVX load.

I'm personally happy with the 9900k. I know i won't need a new CPU for a while. 8-9 years would be a stretch for me personally, but it should function that long at least.
Voltage itself of course doesn't scare me, i've been running my current cpu almost at 1.5V for all these years. Heat dissipation is another subject of course. Anything under or around 70C while gaming with moderate to low noise is what i'm after. Hey after a while i might even drop to 4.8Ghz since 0.2Ghz won't matter much for gaming anyways. I feel confident with the parts i picked, i just hope i won't be wrong. Got the full black case btw, i'm all hyped.

Btw, pulled the trigger, ordered the parts. A team is on their way to retrieve the kidney.

Hope it all works out well since i got a little greedy with the 9900k instead of 9700k which would be enough for my stuff but i wanted more future proofing i guess(i know it doesn't exist in the tech world as much as it used to). My rig served me well, well over 8-9+ years, hope the new one can live up to his predecessor.

Edit:

Only the case is left to be ordered. Can't decide between all black and "black and blue"(NZXT H400, only available colors). F... me. :/
