Haha!
yes, it's exiting times for sure.
I saw a performance/benchmark leak over at videocardz yesterday. It places the 2060S at around 50% of a 3080. Good boost there.

Really excited over at what AMD has up their sleeve with Zen3, and when we will see availability.

and looking at those benchmarks is why I'm thinking of going to the 3090... and a new larger monitor :)

I'll have to bring the bad news... you'll have to add a $10 for thermal compound :lol:
That aside, as I noticed the TIM was missing from your budget I started looking at my domestic e-retailer for what was available of the kind.
And I couldn't recognize any of them.
What are the good/best options for TIM nowadays?
I see pricing at the site I do most of my shopping from range from below $10 to well above $30, and with brands like Noctua, Thermal Grizly, Cooler Master and Corsair.

All perform within a degree or two of each other. Pick your poison.
I like good old MX-4.
Coolermaster works very well also.
Loved by thousands, hated by millions.

Well I've started buying parts. So far I have:

PSU: EVGA 1200w Platimun
Case: Lian Li O11 Dynamic XL Black

with this case I'm going with two 120mm x 360mm x 30mm rads for the bottom and side and a 120mm x 360mm x 45mm rad on the bottom. apparently this case will hold a 140x280 rad on the bottom but after actually seeing this in place I don't see the value in that size of a rad.

Here is the placement plan.

So I'll have 6 fans blowing in and 4 fans blowing out to pressurize the case in hopes it will keep dust out.

What are your thoughts?

After having done more research, here is the updated cost sheet.

Items I am not sold on:
- CPU monoblock. I may be thinking of something more traditional. Really with EKWB still made the Supremacy EVO in full Copper... I like the one I have but can't get an AM4 mount for it.
- Asus M.2 Raid Card. I'll be able to RAID two M.2 Drives on the motherboard. with the Rocket 4 Plus speeds are as advertised, I won't need more than 2 drives.


For CPU I'm leaning on the 5800x, but could go for the 5900x, depends what happens at launch...

GPU's I am not in a rush for, I'm was initially waiting on the Big Navi info and benchmarks, but think it'll end up between the 3070 and the 3080. This being a 5yr build, I'm thinking 3080 as I don't plan on an 8K display in the next 5 years. But I am trying to find a decent 4K 32" display.

I am also shopping for proper fans as well. Noctua's were my go-to, but I don't want to have the ugly brown in this case and I don't want to have to paint them.

So I've made some progress.. Here is where I'm sitting now.

I have 10 Noctua 120mm PWM Redux1700rpm fans. I have them all setup in a Push setup.

Here is the top rad

Bottom Rad

Side Rad

Here is my Drain.. I had to play around and order more standard 90's to get this right...

Planing on bending a few tubes now. I don't have the CPU/MB yet. I couldn't get to the local store to get a new Ryzen 5800x on time to day before they sold out. Hopefully AMD is better at replenishing stock.
