This is my very first build. I needed to upgrade from my Alienware 18 laptop. I didn’t use all the fans. I’ll also be changing my gpu in the near future.
Curious why didn't you go with a AMD Ryzen 9 3900X for the price of Intel i9. Over better architecture more cores & threads, & cache. I would say the only thing better is i9 can run 5ghz on one core @ boost clock speeds.
Just personal preference. I did consider it though.
Good Choice... As an example, earlier this month Linus did an O.C Intel i9-9900K vs AMD Ryzen 9 3950X...
The results > (Intel i9-9900K 8-Core, 16-Thread) was able to edge out (AMD Ryzen 9 3950X! 16-Core, 32-Thread)
Why didnt you use all the fans?
Because I had more then enough airflow. So instead of using 9 I only needed 6. Plus I plan on putting a led plate at the bottom.
what's the gpu and cpu temperate on idle or when in use?
CPU temp is at 37 idle. GPU I'd have to find lol. But all my temps stay green on my MSI and intel app. I have it running at extreme performance. Even when gaming it stays green and suprisingly my GPU doesn't get too hot. I've been looking at it while playing FF15.
