    Posted: 15 Jan 2020 at 5:15am



Got my build yesterday as the subject states and i have been up all night gaming and having fun regardless of how tired i was waiting all day for UPS to show up. I was stressed to track and see that my build was out for delivery 8am in the morning and was on a truck for over 10 hours on New York bumpy streets...I think i was the last person the ups truck driver delivered to. Anyway I was very surprised how clean the cable management was done by DS...I was really impatient at times as I ordered 12/04/2019 and waited and waited but in the back of my mind i'm like it'll be done right it'll be worth it...And yes it was worth it I appreciate the stress testing that was done on my build to ensure everything is running optimal. Ok i'm done typing I gotta goto work and i'm late..i uploaded a vid if anyone is interested in seeing what it looks like turned on...

We hope you remain and keep the forum lively. I speak for myself when I state that most of my computer knowledge was learned with the help and assistance of the forum members. Some are mostly now gone but we continue. Everybody has something to share.

Our build is pretty much the same although I am putting in my 2060 and 32 gb ram when I get it in and taking the 1050 ti and the 16 gb ram and putting it in my old pc. How are you liking the 9700k and the MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PLUS? Can't wait to test mine out.

Truffle,

I'm not even exaggerating the 9700K is a beast...I went with it rather than the I9-900k not because i wanted to save money, but because the i7-9700k is already proven especially for gaming...Plus I finally see why so many still love the i7-9700k because my temps are extremely low...9900k is for those who want the 16 threads for running multi thread applications...anyway i'm very happy with it...the 2060 with 32gb is more than enough with the i7-9700k you will be very pleased...However I chose not to overclock mines so i'm not sure if you got the free overclock for yours... That's something I overlooked in my purchase not knowing Digital Storm would of OClocked it for free to 4.8 on all cores..but it's all good i've been throwing everything at it and it's been handling everything at max settings no problem...and did i mention the temps are extremely low on overload...wow...when are you expecting delivery of your build? The MSI motherboard is amazing also...can't express how happy i am with it...

FYI, Intel itself provides a means to overclock its unlocked procs. Look here:

When (if) you get around to it...!

Good to hear. I am actually supposed to get mine sometime today the 21st by the end of the day. Not sure what time is the "end of the day" as it's already 3 pm and the wait is agonizing considering it was already delayed by two weeks or more because of a m.2 issue. I did get the free overclock along with the free RGB. My 2060 is the OC version too.
