Hi Everyone,

My current CM HAF X case was partially destroyed by the shipping company :mad: so I decided to build a new PC (I wanted to do it anyway sooner or later)....would you mind giving me your opinion and suggestions about the following configuration please? It would be great to have some feedback before starting spending :)

Case: Cooler Master MasterCase H500M ATX Mid Tower Case

Case Fan: Cooler Master MasterFan MF140R ARGB 90 CFM 140 mm Fan (just to replace the included standard non RGB fan on the back of the case)

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360R RGB 66.7 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler (it will be mounted on the top of the case)


CPU: Intel Core i9-9900K 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor (would it be worth to wait for the I9-9900KS?....Someone said that the 9700k would be enough for gaming, but i just want to get the best i can, i won't upgrade for years).

Motherboard: Asus ROG STRIX Z390-E GAMING ATX LGA1151 Motherboard (i think it is the best and more complete of the ROG family, i didn't consider the Maximus because i am not an overclocker)

RAM (not sure which one to pick):
1) HyperX Predator HX432C16PB3AK4/32 Memoria DDR4 32 GB (Kit 4 x 8 GB), 3200MHz CL16 DIMM XMP - RGB or
2) HyperX Fury HX432C16FB3AK4/32 DIMM DDR4, Kit 4 x 8 GB, 32GB 3200MHz CL16 1Rx8 RGB
3) and then....better go for 3000MHz CL15, 3200MHZ CL16 or 3600MHz CL17? at the moment i selected the 3200.

Power Supply: Asus 850 W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply (I know it is maybe to much, but it match with the VGA and MOBO :rolleyes:)

Screen: I will replace it in few mounths, so i am not bothering choosing one now.

I have already got the following parts (from previous configuration):

Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11 GB STRIX GAMING OC Video Card
Storage: Samsung 850 Pro Series 256 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Storage: Western Digital Black 6 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Screen (it will be replaced): Samsung PX2370
OS: Windows 10 Pro 64

thank you in advance for your help!

Go with the cheaper ram kit. The raw performance difference is in the decimals... it doesn't matter as much for Intel builds.

Power supply: Yeah, you definitely don't need to go that high. You're just 50w short of being able to SLI 2080Tis with that much.
I get by with a 750w Seasonic Prime on a OC'd 7820x @4.5ghz + 1080Ti(+164 core & +400 mem).

"i won't upgrade for years "
That's what they ALL say! XD
