Hello, I was looking for any insights/recommendations on my current draft for a pc build.
CPU - Intel - Core i7-11700K Rocket Lake 3.6GHz Eight-Core LGA 1200 Boxed Processor
Motherboard - ASUS - B560M-PLUS TUF Gaming WiFi Intel LGA 1200 microATX Motherboard
RAM - TeamGroup - T-FORCE VULCAN Z 64GB (2 x 32GB) DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 CL16 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit TLZGD464G3200H - Gray
Case - Lian Li - O11 Dynamic EVO Tempered Glass ATX Mid-Tower Computer Case - White
Power Supply - Corsair - RM850 850 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Fully Modular Power Supply - White
GPU - MSI - NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X Overclocked Triple-Fan 12GB GDDR6X PCIe 4.0 Graphics Card
2.5 SSD - Crucial - MX500 2TB SSD 3D TLC NAND SATA III 6Gb/s 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive
M.2 SSD - Samsung - 970 EVO Plus SSD 2TB M.2 NVMe Interface PCIe 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive with V-NAND 3 bit MLC Technology
Watercooling - MSI - MAG CoreLiquid 240R V2 240mm RGB Water Cooling Kit - White
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you for posting on the Micro Center Community! Something you want to keep in mind with the Lian Li O-11 Dynamic is that is does not come with fans and you would only have the 2 fans from your AIO for the case. You will want to add some additional fans for some better cooling.
I haven't, but Ill give those a look!
The X53 or X63 from NZXT would be great choices for cooling.
Hey, just a couple of suggestions. I generally recommend a 360 rad cooler with that processor, especially in that case. You will also need fans your build, because the 011 Dynamic cases do not come with any! Your radiator ideally will take up 2 fan slots (or 3 if you switch to a 360) on the side for in take. Then you should have 3 on top for out take and I recommend an additional 3 on the bottom for in take (9 total fans!) If you would like a cooler, I recommend the Corsair H150i in White or the NZXT x73 in white to go with your color choice. In addition, I recommend a Z590 motherboard to better handle heat, especially for your higher end CPUs like the i7. Good luck with your build!
