For the CPU in this build I selected none other than the Intel Core i9 9900K – with a base clock speed of 3.6GHz across al 8 cores and 16 threads, alongside a phenomenal boost clock speed of upto 5GHz it covers the single and multi threaded bases nicely! It’s also got plenty of overclocking headroom if you want to take things another step further!

Corsair’s latest AIO cooler takes everything good about the H100i and improves upon it! With included light loop fans as standard, addressable RGB integration and a 240mm it looks and performs phenomenally well! …oh and did I mention it’s white!

When it comes to motherboards on Intel’s new Z390 chipset you aren’t short of options, this is a more mid-range board, hitting a better price to performance sweet spot, while retaining features such as dual M.2 slots, SLI and Crossfire support, overclocking for the CPU and RAM alongside USB C on the front and rear panels!

Slightly overkill? Probably. Absolutely awesome? Definitely! Corsair’s latest DDR4 memory boasts their new Capellix RGB technology, with 12 individually programmable LEDs per dimm!

When it comes to crazy-fast storage, there is simply no alternative to Intel’s PCI-E Optane line-up. This 900P boasts read and write speeds in excess of 2GB per second – games have never loaded so fast! I also threw in a 500GB ADATA SX8200 Pro drive, to give a little more general storage space.

Building on the success of the Corsair 280X line-up, the 680X is a full size ATX, compartmentalized chassis available in both black, and you guessed it… WHITE! A really nice looking chassis, with 3 included Corsair Light Loop RGB fans makes it the perfect system for this build!

For the power supply in this build the colour scheme just couldn’t stop me – this is Corsair’s RM850X, in white! With a fully modular interface, that allows you to only plug in the cables that you need, and an 80+ gold certification this is a super efficient unit!
