Intel Core i5-11600K

MB
GIGABYTE Z590I AORUS Ultra

PSU
Corsair RM750x

GRAPHICS
Gigabyte AORUS GeForce RTX 3080 XTREME WATERFORCE

RAM
Silicon Power DDR4 32GB (16GBx2) XPOWER Turbine Gaming 3200MHz

COOLING
Pump&Heat Sink
Swiftech ApogeeDrive II
Radiator
Phobia Xtreme 200

Need a recommendation on a reservoir, ideally horizontal.

This thing is primarily for gaming and light CAD and will be overclocked as required.

TIA,

That's a great looking build so far. One thing to consider would be a 5600x based system because for gaming it handily matches or beats the 11600k in most games with a few outliers. Another reason is that a 11600k will dump about 180-220w of heat into your cooling loop which may impact GPU performance a bit. A 5600x really benefits with getting a fast RAM kit and those are coming down in price a lot lately. If you have never tried tinkering around with RAM I would highly recommend it as it shows meaningful gains on AMD systems.

Helper800,

Thanks for the suggestions, but the Ryzen/Intel ship has already sailed: I have the MB and Apogee parts in hand!
