Thanks for the suggestions Gents.
In my mind I was always headed down the Noctua Cooler road when I was conceptualizing a new Box; until EVGA sent a new 240 mm Closed Loop CPU Cooler as a warranty replacement for a smaller 120 mm unit that failed in a Gamer Box I'd built for one of my sons. He couldn't wait for the RMA process so I subbed an Artic Black unit when my local Canada Computers
shop didn't have the right Noctua on the shelf. (I cut them some slack as it was July 2021 and in the middle of Covid and major supply issues.) He Games daily after work, and it's his primary source of entertainment. Waiting for parts was definitely not on his radar. The Artic Black was only to be a temporary fix but we've been monitoring it and it's worked flawlessly. So I'll still with the EVGA Cooler for the initial build even though I'm not planning to overclock.
The Bitfienix Ghost Case
I'm rebuilding into is spacious, and quiet, but when I mentioned that I was going to re-use it to my wife she quipped: You'll probably find a reason to get a new one.
Sometimes I feel like she's just testing me...
I typically like to use a local supplier like Canada Computers (10 minutes away), or Memory Express (who's 45 minutes away), rather than a Web store but for the last Gamer Box I did use Newegg for the NVMe drive & Ebay of all places for the CPU. If something is (very unusual) dead at installation, RMA it over the Border is always a concern for US sites.
Two of my nephews are Software Engineers (one makes games for EA Sports for the last 7 years or so. And yes my son gets any EA title from him for the employee price of $10 Canadian). I've built Gamer Boxes for them, as well as a couple for my brother, their dad. But lately they've all starting to migrate away to Laptops except my son. My brother says his son (the EA Sports one) is still using his box for gaming and 3D virtual stuff though.
Anyway, even though the 13th gen Intel stuff is out and I'm looking for a deal. Right now I've got an eye on an Intel BX8071512700K Core i7-12700K Octa-Core 3.6GHz Processor, and an ASUS TUF Z690PLUS Wi-Fi D4 ATX LGA 1700 Motherboard at a site I frequent from time to time. They are both overkill for my present use but I like a deal, and somehow can always justify overspending for "future" compatibility o my own Box. I'm also looking at an Intel Core i5-12600K and an ASUS ROG Strix Z690-F but the DDR-5 RAM is scary price wise. It's on a bundled price of only $586 C$
Sorry but I'm not into Boxes with plexiglass windows and RGB lighting, and I've got all the folks I build Rigs for convinced the same. I'm into performance, as usually these Rigs are not what you look at, but rather the Monitor is. Your Rig does look cool but I'll save the $ for a better piece of Kit. I actually turned off the RGB lighting on a couple of the most recent Boxes when some of the good gear comes with it.
I gotta run to the Boat Show...More later!
