The quad lumi should be more than enough. It most likely performs better than most aios anyways.
Looks good, enjoy your build!
May you elaborate on your opinion on why intel sucks?
that cpu block is gorgeous. +1
That is one thicc card
Team Red? WD BLUE ssd and hdd!!!! Haha jk great build.
No screen tearing smooth as butter!
Well I have an nvidia graphics card so freesync doesnt work with that
Maybe try to find a used 7700/7700k? Another upgrade I would recommend is try to get a 1070. Check craigslist or something.
dual channel doesn't benefit that much on coffee lake and isn't worth it for the price imo
Zowie fk2/ec2a are phenomenal mice. Logitech g203/g102/gpro are also both great options. I would recommend the zowie fk2, but if you can go try them out at a local computer store or something.
Cut the price down by a good chunk and added a nice lil tg case, really good cpu cooler, faster ram, and best of all a 1060.

Lol the cooler master 212 evo is like insufficient for a stock 8700k. I wouldn't buy the 212 for almost any build now a days.
Either of those would perform well. Try to get the 1060 if you can though.
Just keep using it until you can upgrade to the best you can get. That saying ur probs just playing at 1080p so dont spend more on anything past a 1070
Look up Rocket Jump Ninja on Youtube. He's reviewed all the best mice around and for all hand sizes.
Ohhh, well then I would just use a cheap 1080p monitor and save up for a 1440p monitor, you won't regret it. Your build looks sweet btw!
I get all ram slots filled looks actually amazing but 32 gbs of ram is so expensive!! I mean an aio is only like 50$ more but 32 gbs of ram is like 200$ more!
Aesthetics my guy lol
If you made these changes maybe you could fit a 1440p 144hz monitor in there?
I would upgrade the graphics card along with the psu. Look in the used market for a 1070 or something. And those builder psus aren't great so I would get a seasonic focus series 550W should do fine or an evga g3/g2 series (whichever's cheapest)
You really don't need a 1080 for 1080p gaming. You could downgrade to a 1070/1070ti or something.
Just overall it performs better, look up some benchmarks just youtube search rx 580 8gb vs 1060 6gb
That ram cover though +1
I think a psu shroud is a lot better imo. Looks a lot better.
If you have or are getting a monitor that has freesync support, get the rx 580, if you don't get the 1060
Idk why but I just love the look of that cooler.
I wouldn't spend so much on the cpu and so little on the gpu. I would go for an i5 with a 1070
This should be pretty sweet! Tried to keep with the stark industries them and dw, that motherboard leds are rgb. I used the240 rad incase you ever want to upgrade your cpu to a i7 or something.
Whatever i'm sure itll be fine. Enjoy your sweet build!
I would recommend staying away from ocing the vega 64
Looks sweet! I know that the vega 64 is pretty power hungry though...
Uhh first of all don't get two 1080's. get a single 2080 or 1080ti. I would check the used market (craigslist r/hardwareswap etc.) for a 1080ti. Two 1080's will perform worse than a single 1080ti
I agree with the refurbished part as it does give you better performance for the price but the problem is theres almost no upgrade paths
What I was thinking. I don't think my cpu will be harming my performance too much at 1080p though
I only really play fps, the only mmo game i've played is ESO but i couldn't really get into it. The i5 8400 is a great cpu so I believe I am being gpu bound
if you want a mouse thats decent at that price range you really shouldn't be looking at wireless.
Alright, I'm gonna start looking for a used 1070 and then a bit later down the line a 144hz monitor!
You are gonna regret getting a mouse and keyboard like those. You're better off with something like this. Also make sure you get a mouse pad. I recommend the steel series qck. The keyboard is mechanical (I have it and love it), and that is an amazing mouse trust me. A lot of pros use it. But for a mouse, I would really recommend trying one out in person, because you want one that will fit your hand nicely.
Yea for 1080p gaming either the 8350k or 8400 are all you are gonna need!
I agree with this statement
Would agree with that in most cases but the two extra cores do help out quite a bit. 8350k and the 8400 are both great chips but I would recommend the 8400 because you don't need a good cooler to oc and you dont need a z370 board.
bruh what, an i3 8100 will outperform a 2600 in games
That should be pretty sweet!
Holy rgb chair
Well gaming is more single cored stuff which intel is a lot better at. An example of this is AMD's FX series. They had 8 cores but were not very good when they came out.
No thats not really how it works. Don't worry about lifespan
