-Chassis: Really nice looking package for custom liquid builds. If not doing custom liquid, money can be spent on a more affordable model that complements your considered hardware better.

-A non-K cpu in a Z motherboard? Not a terrible combo per se, but... it's one of those cases of spending money effectively.

=Intel 9th gen, even though 10th gen is out? Perhaps there's problems with availability of 10th gen on your end..?

-No cpu cooler for the 9700F? The Intel stock coolers are pretty crap.

+Ram: It's ok, as long as it's dual channel.

-No power supply listed. Don't even try to cut corners here, since you were looking at a 250USD chassis.

=I have my own opinions on running the OS and other apps on the same drive, so I'll remain neutral here.

=There's like 5 different kinds of 27" Predators. Could you be more specific?


IDK... there's not much to say. This isn't a complete build.

I have updated the build.
Any recommandations for a low noise air CPU cooler?

No, but that's because the subject of low noise is subjective: You can have low noise fans and still be personally susceptible to certain frequencies, like fan motors.
Noctua is a pretty popular premium option, but some people claim that they can't stand the humming of the fans and avoid them. I don't hear the humming at all.
That's just one example though.

I need something that is better than the standard supplied for temporary use, until i made the entire system water cooled. (Thermaltake).
