    Posted: 21 Jan 2020 at 7:23pm
Budget:
$5000

Expectations:
1440p gaming, reasonable all-core CPU overclock, straight-forward to assemble/disassemble. Looking for a system I can increase my confidence to in upgrading, replacing failed components, tear-down for cleaning, and eventually confidence in building my own system. I would like to overclock the CPU within the capability of the cooler; leave the GPU running stock. Custom CPU cooling selected to provide extra head-room for overclocking the 3950x. Two NVME drives selected (one boot; one currently playing games). One SATA SSD selected for bulk library storage. Looking at ordering 5/8/2020. Specific date. :)

I didn't see an Elgato-type streaming part offered. May have just overlooked it. May want to get an additional hard drive for footage of gameplay.

Usage:
Gaming/streaming

Special Needs:
None

I'm guessing you have a purpose for the Ryzen CPU you select and that you know it's not the gaming part the Intel 9900K is. I have to mention that May is still pretty far off, and parts offered then might change a bit. For instance, Nvidia is projected to release the next gen GPUs perhaps by then.

If you want to get inside your build, I'd recommend you think about buying that 2 TB SSD online and installing it yourself. It's easy and would save you quite a bit.

You said in your narrative you'd leave the GPU at stock, but selected the DS overclock. Then there's always the internal lighting for free.

Just submited my order for the above system. I did add a UPS, keyboard and mouse. Been used to using laptops so long, I've taken for granted having power when the lights go off.

Once the system arrives, I plan to open a thread in the customer review section. I really like the idea of maintaining that thread as the years go by. Thanks guys for all of your assistance.

I switched my order from the Velox to the Lumos because of the cases being back ordered and things have been moving along pretty well. It was in Final Assembly for a couple of days and now it's in Stress Testing. I don't know how many machines they work on at a time but I imagine there are groups of various builds in each stage. Hopefully they'll box it up and fire it off my direction this week.

I was looking over your build list. Its a much more complex system than mine, at least, cooling wise. It goes fast once you get past ghe stress test. You're gonna love it!

Keep in mind the notifications you get are not in actual time as they happen. Be assured they stress-tested your rig overnight, and everything was a GO!

It's getting to look a lot like !!!

The shipping gods like a cardboard sacrifice in their honor....

The shipping gods accepted their sacrifice. Just got my shipment notification from DS. I was expecting UPS or Fed Ex. Instead, I had to Google R L Carriers. Package was picked up today, 2/25, and is expected 3/3. Guess I'll be coughing up a fur ball on Tuesday.
