Asus ROG Rampage VI Apex (Socket 2066) Intel X299 EATX Motherboard
EK Watercooling Kit
64Gb of DDR4 4000mhz

Cooler Master COSMOS II ULTRA TOWER CASE

ehhh 4.8 on all 10 cores with EK ??? you better get another cooling solution tbh, EK is shiny, and that's it. Read their reviews and forums....I would avoid EK where ever I can.

A 4.8 10c OC is on the edge and very depending on Bios versions and what is attached to your rig. It may work in the config that it arrives in, it may hold it..it may not.

I would not bet on that OC number and I would seriously consider NOT hopping on that board.


Not what you want to hear but I think what you need to hear. Don't get blinded by ads and too colorful stories.

I got the EK bit wrong, it's actually a custom water cooler kit made by the people who overclock it. You can see the package here https://www.overclockers.co.uk/8pack...bu-00m-8p.html

It comes with a 3 year warranty from them with 12 months labour and people speak pretty highly about their overlocked packages.

With the work I use it for the system pays for itself after 2 weeks max. When threadripper 2 comes I'll take the 1080ti out and sell it to one of my employees and just take the money out of their wages each month. This is what I've done with my MacBook pro's over the years.

What's wrong with your 8700k? I thought it was the best gaming cpu. If it wasn't for my work needs and the computer was used for just gaming then I'd probably get this package from overclockers https://www.overclockers.co.uk/8pack...bu-00w-8p.html

I don't like the chipset that comes with it, Z370 and the hassle that is attached to delidding/relidding etc.., than it refuses it run my RAM at XMP without hassle. It still does freak out so I reverted to 3200, now back to 2133 and no OC at all for now.

I am fed up with this 8700k/Z370 combo. The CPU alone maybe gave a better experience with a better board. I may change the board if I keep the CPU. I will then grab a Gigabyte, after 2 decades of Asus.

I just checked the combo.

Honestly, that cooler is WAY WAY too small for that much wattage.

YOu cant cool that 10core chip with an AIO, that's what it is.

You should get a real custom cooling with double 360's or douboe 480's..or like I have, a big external radiator.

The wattage you will pump into that system, believe me, will heat it up in a very short time.
If you really need all 10 cores for work at full tilt, than that combo is nonsense, I tell you this a a server builder. The cooling is OK for gaming and occasional video editing.

edit* I'd also watercool the VRM's if you want this full tilt @ work for hours and hours. The VRM's will suffer if you pump 300+ watts continuously through them.

Really, think twice !
