    Posted: 01 Jul 2019 at 7:07pm
Budget:
3500


Usage:
Gaming only, FPS , 1440 monitor



Special Needs
None really. My DS system is about 8 hrs old. Bought 2 for my boys. My major questions are concerning motherboard, memory and power brand. I understand my cooling and lighting are overkill but hey, I'm old and want some bling!

Welcome back salsab!   
I think I clearly get what you are after here...lol.

I last bought a DS rig for myself in 2011, but I recently bought a nice new DS Lumos RTX 2080 rig this year for my son to use that has the same OC'ed CPU, cooler and the LL Series Corsair fans you have selected...(That was my 4th DS rig!)
You will like your new rig!

Make sure you are aware that the DS Velox case build puts the motherboard & video card upside down, and the main case door is on the right side of the case instead of the normal left side. It's a DS design case.

*Change your Drive 1 selection to an M.2 NVME 500 GB Samsung Evo SSD...NVME is 5 times faster than SATA III 6 gbps drives. It uses the video PCIE bus to go faster.   You will have a 2nd port on the motherboard for another M.2 NVME SSD you can add yourself when you need it.    Just plugs in at one end and lays flat on the board...just a screw to secure it down. Easy!

*Only other suggestion is Upgrade RAM to Corsair Vengeance 16 GB kit for matching RGB bling and better quality and Corsair warranty.

You will download Corsairs excellent iCue software from the Corsair website to control all the Corsair RGB fans and RAM color scheme.   Amazing what you can do to change up the look of a rig.


The rest of your choices are great!
Excellent I7-9700K 8 core CPU with plenty of cooling for Stage 2 OC.   

Solid midrange RTX 2070 GPU should do OK with 1440p at high settings.   The RTX 2080 would stay up there nearer the top for gaming a bit longer if you need to go another 8 yrs...lol.

Plenty of power with Corsairs solid modular 850W PSU, and has Gold level efficiency and a great Corsair warranty.

Asus Z390 ROG Maximus Hero XI MOBO is excellent for Overclocking!   Also includes an on board LCD Q-Code reader that can be invaluable if you have any mobo issues crop up...
Q-codes can offer a coded explanation of what's wrong...
Only the top boards will have a Q-Code reader.

Well done sir!

Looks great!   Solid component selections that should game well!

Oh forgot to mention they do have an option to paint the Velox case in white or one of several colors...quite a reasonable price!

Also keep in mind the Parts warranty is just a 1 year for replacement... There are options to extend the Parts warranty to 2 or max 3 yrs if desired.
