Case
BE QUIET! DARK BASE PRO 900 FULL TOWER GAMING CASE
Processor (CPU)
Intel® Core™ i9 Eight Core Processor i9-9900K (3.6GHz) 16MB Cache

Get Just Cause 4, PUBG & More w/ select Intel CPUs!

Motherboard = ASUS® ROG STRIX Z390-E GAMING: ATX, LGA1151, USB 3.1, SATA 6GBs, WIFI - RGB Ready
Memory (RAM) = 32GB Corsair VENGEANCE DDR4 2666MHz (2 x 16GB)
Graphics Card = INTEGRATED GRAPHICS ACCELERATOR
1st Storage Drive = NOT REQUIRED
1st M.2 SSD Drive = 500GB SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS M.2, PCIe NVMe (up to 3500MB/R, 3200MB/W)
DVD/BLU-RAY Drive = NOT REQUIRED
Power Supply = CORSAIR 650W TXm SERIES™ SEMI-MODULAR 80 PLUS® GOLD, ULTRA QUIET

The company I am buying the above from does not have my preferred options for the main data drive of the graphics card so I am sourcing those from elsewhere. Graphics card will more than likely be an ASUS GeForce GTX 1050Ti ROG STRIX 4GB GDDR5. I am considering using my Samsung 1TB 850 Pro out of my laptop for te data drive but that may change, but it has to be a Samsung Pro.

 

So, the waiting begins...

It sounds great and I hope you have it soon. I think you are getting a great computer.

You'd think something called an i9 would come with NINE processors, not eight, ya? 😉

Perhaps the i8 is a nine processor CPU?

I have received confirmation that it is one the way to the courier. So, could be here tomorrow (Friday) or, more than likely Monday.

Well, it arrived. Weighs a tonne... Never had a full tower before!

I only had time to verify that it switches on then I had to get back to other stuff. It was my youngest son's birthday yesterday (currently half past midnight here in the UK) and, of course, I had to be in attendance.

I managed to jump back to it about ninety minutes ago and I am currently, and very slowly, installing stuff and changing settings to suit. I also installed the GPU, which wasn't fitted during the main build. That appears to be okay and I am seeing if I have time to download a game to test it out.

Plugged in my two OCTA-CAPTUREs and although I haven't installed a DAW yet, I can at least confirm that they function as audio devices.

 

So much to do... I'll be back in about a week with some pics O.o

Not that there is much to see...

Did the full tower come with its own taunting Frenchman? 😀

How many hard drives will you install?

It doesn't look like it will hold enough...  Maybe he should get an external NAS to go with the system? 🤣

Haha!

Well, besides the M.2 NVMe drive, which contains the OS, I opted for a cheap and cheerful Samsung 1TB QVO drive, despite its bad write-ups.

Perhaps I should have a look at removing those hard drive bays :D

Doesn't seem to get warm enough to keep my pies warm...

Stuck it at the back of my computer desk... Not sure about the aesthetic but it works for the cables...

Love it...
