      Wait a second... Are you telling me, you think it’s a good build, Because the parts work together and because it looks good?... okay... if you say so?

      I guess I’d be opting for the 3900X as well and 32GB would be my amount of RAM as well, maybe even 64. As for the M.2: I’d take two. Pretty much everything else in my case would be different. I’d go for the Gigabyte AORUS X570 PRO for more usb connections and a - for my use - reasonable layout of slots. My CPU cooler would be the Noctua D15S, my case something quiet with a decent enough airflow and my graphics card would be a decent cooling RTX 2080 SUPER.

        To save myself time, any chance you know what kit I can order from cable mod so I can order everything at the same time?

          I feel like ~$3900 could have been spent much more efficiently. With the same budget, you could have gotten damn near the same performance, plus custom cable management and a top tier 1440p monitor.

                the problem with the rebranded cards is that they can look cooler but they are so beefy, I don't mind beefy cards, but I don't like it when all u see is the ugly heatsink

                    what is the temps on the 3900x with the ML360R. I get 80c with ML360R. 100% cpu load. prime 95 with small tft cpu test. I think this is a little hot

                                      Awesome build! So I also used the Liquid cooler from Cooler Master but used the controller included with my H500M case instead of going directly into the MB. For some reason though the controller isn’t picked up by my MB or the lighting controls to control it through the app. Any solutions or hints how to fix that? I’ve thought about rewiring everything but wanted to see if tneres an easier solution?? Thanks! Love your builds!

                                            I want to build my next PC since it's been many years. However, I am going to wait until the launch of the 3950X and see how that plays out. I also really prefer ASUS when it comes to motherboards.
