Grab a Corsair AIO. The Vortex is good, but it's warranty is meh.... Never go cheap on cooling, if it was me. And I needed to save some cash I would grab the 9700k which runs a bit cooler if you're going to stick with the Vortex. Just my thoughts.

Another idea if it's money holding you back. Downgrade that 32 GB of ram, I'm sure you can survive off 16 GB unless you are doing massive work that requires 32 GB.

That’s a good idea wouldn’t even of thought about that I’ll probably move it up to the stage 2 Corsair because I know cooling is one of the most important parts

Welcome to the forums Ruthless! Good build.

I agree with PinkGoat the cooler change to the better Stage 2 Corsair is smart.

I noticed your Drive1 selection was just a SATAIII Samsung SSD. Think you should utilize the faster m.2 memory slots on your top line motherboard and upgrade to use a Samsung 970 EVO or EVO Pro m.2 NVME SSD for Drive1. Much faster m.2 NVME memory uses the PCIE bus your graphics card uses...instead of sharing a slot on the slower SATAIII bus.

You haven’t mentioned your plans for this rig, but the top of line Asus Hero motherboard you chose is aimed more at heavy overclockers and 2x or 3x SLI users.   If that’s not in your plans, you could easily drop to a lower priced Asus Prime Deluxe or Asus ROG Strix or MSI Pro Carbon motherboard to save yourself some money while still allowing for plenty of overclocking and future SLI.   Just a thought... if a little subtraction helps your numbers work out better, those other boards would also play nice with all your build selections.   Nothing wrong with your build choice of that Asus Hero board, and plenty of us on the forums just prefer a certain level of extras or overkill in our own motherboard choices.

That does better explain your uses for 32gb RAM.
Let us know what your final build looks like...
Should be a very solid rig!

Agree heartily about the cooler and the NVMe M.2 drive. the Samsung 970 PRO is only $52 more than your pick, and up to 10X as fast!

The mobo is total overkill with no purpose. I recommend the MSI Pro Carbon. Better customer service than Asus should you ever need it.

The power supply is also way more than you need. The Corsair 750 Watt is the right pick. That would deliver between 250-300W overhead, which is well in the comfort zone.

Another cost-saver to consider is cutting back to 16 GB of RAM. See how that works for you, it should be enough for what you want. If not, it's about the easiest upgrade there is. You should get the exact same Ram later, but you'll save as much as $80 getting it on your own.

Hope it helps.

NVME vs SSD on a boot drive is negligible at best in difference. The NVME wins in write but on boot the drive reads so SSD or NVME is practically the same. I personally use my nvme for long load games. Just reporting.

I highly doubt Streaming/recording will never come close to needing more than 16 GB of ram. People buy the 32 GB for the RGB and the look IMO. I'm sure we have 1% of the base that needs 32 GB. Everyone else buys it like they're buying RGB. Because it looks cool. Not meant to put anyone down, it's just a waste of 200 bucks iMO.

Went ahead and upgraded storage and the motherboard change will probably happen only difference is the ROG has wifi which ill never use but its a cool option to have and power supply just gonna keep it the same not much of a price difference.

Actually hardware unboxed just did a video of the current ram usage in games alone. 16gb is the new 8gb with some games actually using a good bit (11gb+). So when you add in other applications such as obs you could see usages spike to near 16 and with a lot of modules ect you could see that surpass 16 even. With that said I did just upgrade my 16gb to 32gb (4x8) Corsair vengeance pro RGB. Mainly for speed (2666 vs 3200) and also for the RGB lmao. Could have gone with a lower tier and saved some cash but meh.

I suppose if you're paying cash and not using credit for the purchase then it makes sense. Otherwise it's a big waste of $$$

Actually, the Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon AC does have wifi. Don't know why it doesn't just come out and say so.

@ Psyoshi: I understand real world use vs specs, but what the heck happens to the nearly 7x read speed on NVMe vs SATA? What impedes that much of a differential? No challenge, just askin'.

Not enough loading on boot to mean much in general between SATA and NVME.   Maybe a few seconds, although I never compared the two.   My NVME boots to desktop in like 5 seconds or less.      My take.....might as well get the fastest because the NVME Drive won’t be for just booting, for most.   It does come down to how fast do you need, but since when do we buy for our needs.

@Cretae Sequential read of a SSD and NVME is actually almost neck and neck not 7x faster. The write on the other hand is like 4x faster. I have done lots of testing in this. I have a Samsung 970 Evo Pro NVME, adata SSD, and a platter drive running paired with 32gb of Intel optane. They boot at the same speed with the optane having hiccups if not booted often. If you went with a 1TB boot drive the Evo makes sense since you could store games on it as well since your OS is gonna eat a lot of that real estate.
