I'm trying to stay under about $2,000 USD ideally, but that's not necessarily a hard limit. For instance, I'm fine with the $2,071 price in this build. However, I would appreciate some recommendations or advice on a couple things.
CPU: Intel Core i7-11700K
MOBO: MSI - Z590 MPG Gaming Carbon WiFi Intel LGA 1200 ATX Motherboard
GPU: PowerColor - AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Red Devil Overclocked Triple-Fan
RAM: G.Skill - Ripjaws V 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 CL16 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit F4-3200C16D-32G - Black
STORAGE: Samsung - 970 EVO Plus SSD 1TB M.2 NVMe
CASE: Cooler Master - NR600 MasterBox Tempered Glass ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Black
COOLER: Lian Li - Galahad 360mm RGB Water Cooling Kit - Black
PSU: Seasonic USA - FOCUS GX-850, 850W 80+ Gold
Will this 360mm AIO fit in this mid-tower case, and will I have enough clearance for the 6900xt? Would I be better off going for a full tower case?
Is a 360mm AIO enough to cool the CPU if I decide to overclock?
How many more case fans would I probably need?
Will all of the RGB sync with any one universal software? Again, this is my first build and I've never messed with RGB.
Is the 6900xt way too overkill for 1440p? Is 6800xt enough for 4k? I was originally considering a 6800xt but the price difference was so low ($100-150, depending on the model) now that I figured why not. I may also use it for GPU acceleration of some machine learning models down the road. (Therefore this is primarily, but NOT solely a gaming build.)
Also could use some advice for mobos. Just went with a fairly cheap Z590 that seemed to have built-in wifi and enough usb-connectivity. What's the difference in the Z590s and the B650s?
The 1TB M.2 will do for now, but is 32GB of RAM overkill?
To answer your questions:
Yes, it will fit. Going with a full tower or larger mid-tower case will give you more working room in the case for cable management.
Yes, you could not go any bigger except for doing a custom loop PC.
You would have 5 fans in total, 3 from the cooler and 2 from the case. This should provide you with adequate cooling.
No, the PowerColor graphics card will not sync with your other components with its given software. Changing to an MSI graphics card would alleviate that issue.
Personally, I would stick with a NVIDIA graphics card. CUDA gives you more processing power for tensor machine learning vs an AMD card. An RTX 3080 would get you great 4k performance and cost almost as much as a 6900 XT.
Also could use some advice for mobos. Just went with a fairly cheap Z590 that seemed to have built-in wifi and enough usb-c connectivity. What's the difference in the Z590s and the B560s?
The motherboard you choose was perfect based on your needs in the prompt. You'd be paying more for slight differences in features, but overall they would preform the same. The major difference between a Z590 and a B560 motherboard would be the ability to overclock your processor.
Not if you plan on using the PC for other features besides gaming, the upgrade in ram could help with multitasking especially with machine learning.
Hope this helps!
