I like it!

9/10 of my hardware failures have been due to condensation.

the other 10% PEBKAC or I volted the hell out of it.

You.re going to have to insulate that thing up to protect against moisture/condensation.


If you've never done it, I would recommend having someone that's done it a bunch of times do it, and don't expect any guarantees.

Possibly The Pook has run like that?

toolmaker03 ok, so I am now locked into a single motherboard, because I got the Bitspower Mono Block for the Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master board.

that solves that I will get a set at the start of next month. this leaves the motherboard, and CPU for it, as the last pieces I will need to finish this build. I will be getting a gigabyte motherboard, as the video cards are also gigabyte. I like to match my video cards, and motherboards, as doing this, seems to help with creating a more stable system.


well this will be my first M.2 drive so that will be fun figuring out. I already know what memory I am getting next month, so the next part to get will be the motherboard, in a few months from now.

yea it's about $75 so not bad, I might end up getting these. I need to find out if they are B die memory chips first. memory today is a very fickle creature, so I try to get the most stable I can find.

You can’t use any of it until you have all the parts you need so if you buy it piece by piece it will just sit there depreciating whilst newer, better hardware becomes available.

I get that, but I never buy the latest and greatest. the 20 series RTX cards, are a good example as to why. plus it takes me months to save for parts, if I just waited, I would end up spending the money on other things. I do limit my hobbies to a certain amount of cash, otherwise I would spend myself into starvation. so at this point, I am looking at getting the memory for this build next.

I like this memory with the 14CL for 3200Mhz memory.
