So looking to build a new PC so i can get a bit more ram and not steal to much from my current Gaming PC so i can have a back up/for the wife
currently all i've bought is the
LED Strip Lighting
For Motherboard I'm more inline with buying a Asus or MSI
Yes i kinda want to keep the white aesthetic going lol
CPU maybe a
I currently have a GTX 1080 but will upgrade maybe once the 3080's come out depending on SC's demends
So Power supply
Finally waiting on what motherboard to pick before i look at RAM, not sure what i want but i want the 32GB
My budget, i don't really have a number set in stone, but i don't want to spend more on the processor + motherboard then a new video card xD
My old build was passed down and time for a new one, parts get here Thursday to start assembling.
CPU: Intel Core i9-9900K Coffee Lake 8-Core, 16-Thread, 3.6 GHz
CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro Series, H150i PRO RGB, 360mm
Motherboard: ASRock Z390 Taichi Ultimate LGA 1151
Memory: CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 32GB (4 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000)
Video Card: GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2070 GAMING OC 8G Graphics Card, 3 x WINDFORCE Fans, 8GB 256-Bit GDDR6
Hard Drive: SAMSUNG 970 PRO M.2 2280 512GB
Power Supply: CORSAIR RMx Series RM850x CP-9020180-NA 850W
Tower: Thermaltake View 71 RGB 4-Sided Tempered Glass Vertical GPU Modular E-ATX Gaming Full Tower

I'd like to get more in depth with overclocking this one. Assuming it will stay more than cool enough to push it some.
Anyone have experience with this type of mobo's settings to give some suggestions?
I am getting ready to build another PC due to the fact that my current rig is going on 4 yrs old (still solid) and I am passing it on to my kids so they can start to dabble in the PC realm.
My current rig is a mini ITX. Although it was fun, I'm going back to a micro ATX mid tower size.
New build -
CPU- Intel i7-8700k
Cooler - NZXT Kraken X62 Rev2
Mobo - Asus ROG STRIX Z370-G Gaming (mATX)
Memory - Corsair Vegnance RGB Pro 16gb DDR4-3000
Storage - Samsung 860 Evo 1TB
GPU - Asus GTX 1080 8gb ROG STRIX , but if new cards pop soon might swap.
Case - Corsair Crystal 280X RGB mATX mid tower
PSU - Corsair HX Platinum 750w
Also gonna grab a 32" ultra wide to pair up with a 27"
So this will be a RGB build with most of the components having that feature. I want to build a solid rig but not trying to max anything out this time around as I will probably do another build in a few years.
Will throw up some pics once its done.
