Hi everyone. I'm putting together a Velox, and I was looking to get some feedback on my build.Some of my primary concerns are noise level, and temp control. My current PC runs very hot and loud, and that is something I would like avoid with my new build. Also I'm not sure if I want to go with the RTX 2080 or save some money with a 2070. I don't have a 4k monitor right now, but would like to get one in the future. How drastic is the 4k performance between the two cards?

Hi Nexas,

Welcome to DS.

That is a nice system you have there. The configuration gurus will chime in later and give more reasoned advise.

I can tell you that I would change the Storage Set1 to a NVM Express drive. The 860 is SATA and while much faster than SSD, the NVM is much faster than a SATA. (my personal choice is the 970 Pro).
Also the oc  for the gpu is not needed.

And last, the window on the Velox is on the right looking at the front. Just in case.
Enjoy. Big%20Smile

I respect your build and the fact that you only have 16 GB of RAM unlike all the other peeps here who like to see double sided RGB on a MOBO =)

The RTX 2070 I would compare to the GTX 1080. 2070 is a bit better and can run 2K without issues. 4k will be really good with the 2070 and 2080 will offer you better FPS if that's what you're looking for, and will cost you an extra 400 dollars. Not worth IMHO. 400 bucks you could get another HD, upgrade your cooling ect.....

Forgot to mention your overclock on the GPU and CPU are not needed. The clock speed of all your hardware will be top notch right out of the box.

IMHO, the monitor size and viewing distance while gaming usually defeats the purpose of 4K. It's great for a huge display from quite a few feet away, but it barely dings 2K up close and personal. I think ThePinkGoat is right that the extra cost of gearing up for the great performance you can have for much less at 2K is not worth it. Last I looked, you would have to pony up $1800 for a 27" 4K monitor that could play at more than 60 FPS, for example. At 27" what can you see at 4k you don't get at 2K? Almost everyone here is very pleased with 2k at higher framerates for gaming.

Ditto the choice of an NVMe for your primary drive, but you would never notice the performance difference between the Pro and the EVO, and they both have 5 year warranties, so I recommend the 970 EVO.

The video card has fans, so if you want quieter, don't overclock it. Everything else is very cool, but the 750 W PSU would be plenty.

Hope it helps.

I have a 42" Samasung 4K tv that does my 4k 60FPS needs but on PC I don't use 4k for gaming. I prefer my 27" 1440p that can do 144hz refresh and at 1/5 the cost of a comparable 4k monitor. Personally I have the 2070 and can say definitively that it performs stellar in all games I have thrown at it with max settings. Getting on avg 90-120FPS on modern AAA titles at 1440p which is good since anything over 143 I would have to frame cap anyways to avoid screen tearing and disabling G-Sync. If you do game more than 3-4ft from your screen regularly a larger 4k display may work for you. But a 4k TV will do the same job if you must have 4k but possibly provide better sharpness and color at a much better price.
