Hi all the time has come for me to upgrade my pc.
Must say that i was aiming to go with the same brands like Asus ROG motherboard at first BUT .... curent motherboard maximus v gene and it has never let me down in any way 6 years not a single problem so naturaly i looked and was going to by the maximus ix hero z390 board some reviews tho that i looked at on youtube stoped me going that way !!! Motherboard seems to be less heat resistant that older models or produces more heat due to newer hardware any way i think that it is not worth taking a risk when spending 250 - 300 € and then watch it cook lol
Because in the area i live it gets very hot in the summer and for most of the year its like 32c indoors sometimes so the air is hot saying this i must ad that my curent asus maximus v gene has never gone over 55c 4 fans x120 and another 3 fans taking air out, must ad avarege time spent on pc daily is 4 - 5 hours
I was so sure that i was gona get the maximus hero Z390 board searched and found compatable components total build was about 1700 € give or take .
Know i am looking at the MSI ACE Z390 motherboard and starting all over again lol
Any advice or recomendations as to what parts are best for a solid gaming experience , would be much appreciated is there anyone that dose have the MSI ACE and what is the perfect build not going for overclocking at the moment but maybe in the near future pc is going to be used for e sports mostly .
My search so far is
motherboard : MSI ACE Z390
CPU : i7 9700k
cpu COOLER : CORSAIR H110i
RAM : Corsair Dominator platinum 32GB DDR4 - 3000 Mhz CMD32GX4M2B3000C15
SSD : Samsung 960 evo 500 gb
Case : Be quiet Dark Base 900
GPU : 2070 or 2080 SUPER not sure yet wich brand ..... at the moment will try to fit my rog strix 1060 6gb
Monitor : asus XG27VQ i already have the monitor
PSU : Corsair HX 850 already have psu
Anythink that could be beter or more compatible ?
Thank you all 🆒

Going with faster RAM is all I'd suggest. Maybe DDR4-3466 of 3600. If you wanted to keep the price the same, cut down to 16GB RAM at this higher speed... you won't be limited by 16GB in gaming unless you have multiple new AAAs open at once.
