Can someone provide some feedback on this build?
Should have mentioned, this runs a sim racing rig, and that is all it does. Don't need a ton of storage, just CPU and GPU.
Greetings. If that fits your budget, I mean that is easily a top of the line computer for any sort of gaming, there isn't really any other suggestions we could make besides looking into perhaps water cooling the CPU instead.
Thanks so much Ian. I keep going back and forth with water cooling.
I would recommend it over air cooling for that processor.
I definitely agree with Ian that you should water-cool that CPU. The 9900K/10900K/11900K are all well known for consuming 200W+ if allowed (Intel power restrictions off in UEFI, not even OC'ing). A 280mm or 360mm cooler is recommended. A Kraken X63 would be nice, and I think it would allow you to still use the case's included RGB fans:
I would also personally change that SSD. QLC does not exactly tickle my performance bone. Its endurance rating of 200 TBW (Terabytes written) labels it as a storage drive, IMHO, not a high performance boot drive. I suggest an upgrade to at least the Crucial P5 (with an endurance rating of 1200 TBW!) which is a very cheap upgrade considering the price of this PC:
