    help choosing a cpu cooler and psu

    Out of those 2 CPU fans, I prefer the Arctic Liquid Freezer II 360. They have good reviews and I've used Arctic products in the past on previous builds. I'm not familiar with EKWB. I've been using Seasonic PSU and really like their build quality. Based on reviews, that specific model is really...

    I think its a trap, Told I could build a new PC.

    Can always upgrade in pieces and move said hardware to a new setup later this year. 1TB NVME SSD upgrade. 3080 if you're able to find one.

    10700k to 11900k?

    If there's a need, upgrade it. When you do upgrade it, do it towards the end of 2021 so you can get some decent discount and a good run with your 10700k. Unless everything you are doing right now are being capped, I don't see the need to rush.

    5800x cooling question

    When I had the 5800x, when bench testing, I was idling at 38C and spiked all the way to 87C pretty consistently during Cinebench. This was using the H115i ELITE CAPELLIX inside the 4000x RGB.

    Sounding like a student becoming the master situation, haha. Time for Intel to start undercutting and gives us another good dose of competition.

    I have 10850K. Get Z490 or wait for Z590 Motherboard

    Get a Z490 board now. Where you should wait is on the GPU. Unsure how much you're going to pay for your 2080ti but hopefully it won't be retail. Buy a 3000 series or 4000 series (if you can wait that long).

    If you could have a 3080 or a 6800XT which would you rather and why?

    Went with 3080 since I just dropped cash on a gsync uw monitor, lol

    (Rumor) RTX 3080 ti releasing between February 11th.and 17th

    Yah, could be but there's a huge gap of loss opportunity between the $699 3080 and the $1499 3090. Now that AMD actually have a GPU tech that competes, AMD can run around freely between $700 and $1498 (as long as it performs at that price point) if NVIDIA doesn't counter. It's all good for us...

    10850K for $240 or wait for Rocketlake or get a 5900x (First upgrade in 10 years)

    10850K for $250? Nice! I rather get that with an additional $50 bucks in my pocket compared to a 5600x and all the rick rolling one has to deal with to even get that CPU. Get it and don't look back!
