I built this for work and the pleasure of my kids who love fortnite. I wanted a rig that could handle davinci resolve and last me a long while without upgrading. The 9900k should satisfy my needs for years to come. I use Fl Studio for audio production and the export and rendering times are much quicker than my old 4770k. Let me know what you think.

Part Reviews


It's a beast! What else can I say? Just Finished this build and have her @ 4.8ghz stable. She runs cool at idle (34-36c). Cost is higher than I would like.

CPU Cooler

Quiet and keeps 9900k cool, wish the icue software could control all my RGB. great price!


killer board but missing jcorsair header for corsair RGB compatibility. headers are placed well for case management. not many options for z390m boards, Its expensive too.


Ram clocks up to 3000mhz and works


Fast SSD and works as it says

Video Card

Had trouble getting drivers installed and needed bios update to fix the issue, runs quiet and fans stay off unless your pushing it, they can get loud depending on your case. Should come with custom sleeved cables at this price.


Love the look of this case but cable management is a task. Case is roomy and heavier than I expected. Its completely modular and I might swicth the Mobo position to see if I can manage cables better. I like it overall.

Case Fan

Expensive for a fan. Software isnt the best but it works, rgb doesnt sync with mobo. Fan cable is too long and just adds to cable management issue. velcro that is used for the controller is strong, so strong it pulls the adhesive away from wherever you want to place it in your case. Its quiet even at high speeds

I like it. Hows the audio been on this motherboard so far? Also doing a 9900k build for gaming and fruity loops. I've picked everything except the. Motherboard so far

No hums or pops so far, im satisfied for now. My old asus z87 was clean at first but developed a hum on powered speakers, and they are on a power conditioner
