Need some advice on a new pc build

Fri Jan 18, 2019 2:15 am

Need some advice on a new pc build. I haven’t built a pc since 2013 so quite a lot has changed.

Case: CORSAIR Crystal 570x RGB White(Purchased)

Case Fans: 6x SP120mm RGB(3 pre-installed)

Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix z390-e RGB(Purchased)

Processor: Intel i7-9700K(Purchased)

CPU Cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition

Ram: 2x 8GB DDR4 G.Skill RGB Trident Z

Graphics Card: Asus ROG Strix GTX 1060

Power Supply: CORSAIR TX750M 80 Plus Gold Cert.(Future Upgrades Possible)

Storage: 1x 2TB Seagate Baracuda HDD 72k RPM, 1x 500GB WD SSD(Possible M.2 Installed later)

I’m not sure if I’m missing anything and if I am and I’ll reply with what I have chosen if I missed something. Otherwise please leave advice for the build anyone has anything. Cable management will be a hassle with this case I have heard so I will deal with that to the best that I can. Thank you
