I don't game. This would be more for amateur radio, general computing.
CPU i9 12900k
MB Asus Z690 G-ROG
32Gb memory DDR-5600
Corsair 4000D case
Corsair RM750X PS
ASUS NVIDIA RTX 3050 graphics card
Samsun 980 NVMe 1 Tb SSD
there was only one fan listed for cooling
Any thoughts? Overkill? Parts not compatible?
I think the 12900k is a "no heatsink included" CPU, so you'd need a cooler for it.
I would suggest that the 12700 or 12600 will last just as many years for general computing as the 12900 but cost a lot less. The 12600 is the first level CPU that includes the new "efficiency cores" so it is an excellent choice, is quite powerful, will last many years for general computing but is not overkill. For all three of these, there is no cooler included. Something like a bequiet Dark Rodk 4 would be a good air cooler for all 3 choices.
Cases come with a starter fan or two but they seem to expect people want to pick their own to add more. There's a variety of options from lights or no. More fans mean they can be run at slower speed and make less noise. You can always add more later if the one(s) it comes with are not enough.
Thanks for the suggestions. A couple of tweaks to the build were made and the computer "screams'!
Great to hear!
