Was first thinking about getting the 3800x but many people have told me that is silly to pair an almost 1900$CAD GPU with that cpu. Since I already have the 2080ti msi trio I believe the i7 9700k is a perfect choice because it's identical to the 9900k for less.

I need help picking a cpu cooler preferably an AIO water cooler with a MOBO that will work with the i7-9700k and fast ram too.

I was reading the FAQ for the Corsair Hydro Series H100i Pro, someone asked if it came with an am4 mount? does the 9700k even need that or is that AMD and will i need some mount for this cooler or is it even a good cooler at all paired with the 9700k??


I am not knowledgable with MOBO nor RAM, I am canadian and I would like the budget UNDER 1000$ CAD not including tax

THANKYOU <3

The H100i Pro is a great AIO, good match for that CPU.
For the memory, the Corsair Vengeance LPX has good compatability with the motherboard.

I heard that the 9700k should use 32gb of ram is this true?

PS - is there a slightly cheaper MOBO you can reccomend or should i buy the one you linked i am not sure how important the Motherboard is in the system so i could be wrong thankyou very much by the way for the help

At what resolution? 1080p yes but 1440p then it's a toss up.

A 2080ti is overkill for 1080p.

Read some reviews before believing what "many people' say. And the 9900K has hyper threading which might just come in handy with certain games in the future.

In some games you just might get a few extra fps max with Intel,but minimum is another story.
