CPU: I chose the i7 9700k because I’m only going to use it for gaming. Will never ever need all the cores Ryzen provides. I upgrade cpus every year or 2 anyway.
GPU: Not much I can say here but that it’s a beast. went with EVGA for there customer service
Mobo: Beautiful mobo, obviously overkill but I really don’t care
RAM: will def get hate for this. “If you got 16 gb you could of put the 100 dollars towards a bettER CPU!!!” Well the thing is like I said I don’t need a better cpu so I went with looks here. Don’t need 32 gb either. I’m a ***** when it comes to looks sorry!!
Cpu cooler: probably my favorite part of this build. I always went aio a in my builds. I was so scared to apply the thermal paste because aio usually have it pre installed. Everything went well and I love how this cooler looks. Go noctua!!!
HD Corsair fans: so happy I went with these over the LL fans. Absolutely stunning.
Case: Wow just wow. Talk about under rated. This was one of my hardest choices. I have a cat who tracks little like crazy and the litter is so fine it actually drops through a dust filter. My favorite case is the pc 011 and I thought it would be impossible to find a case similar to the pc 011 with the top completely sealed off. Low and behold enters antec. I found this gem on Newegg. They don’t sell it anywhere else’s. Rarely any reviews on YouTube either. It’s a shame because it’s truly beautiful and never thought I would own a antec case. Love it!!! ❤️❤️❤️
Anyway the build went great . I do have alot of OCD and anxiety. Not the joking kind. Real OCD. I have to make sure everything is perfect. I get paranoid a lot also. I remember when screwing in the fans it was so hard to screw it in. I saw a metal shaving come off the screw. The whole time I was thinking the metal shaving will go on my mobo and short it. I’m actually still terrified lol. Anyway thanks!!
