Asrock X299E-ITX/AC Motherboard + i7-7820X + 64GB DDR4 + 256GB Samsung 970 EVO + Bitspower Monoblock. Box, IO Shield, antenna. Intel i7-7820X (Mounted, CPU box included). Hyper X Impact 4 x 16GB (64GB) Sodimm DDR4 CL17-19-19 2933MHz. Samsung 970 EVO M. 2 2280 NVMe SSD 250GB. Bitspower MonoBlock BP-WBMASRX299EI CPU Water Block for ASrock X299E. No Windows 10 included on the 250GB Boot Drive. The board has a WiFi adapter on it and an antenna is included. Samsung 970 Evo M2 2280 NVMe 256GB SSD is mounted on the motherboard. There are two other NVMe M2 slots under the motherboard and you can RAID all the drives if you want. My original plan was to mount two 2TB Intel 660 NVMes under there and have a build with no Sata ports being used (great for cable management). Hyper X Impact 64GB SoDimm DDR4 already installed on Motherboard and XMPd. You really do not have many superior options in Sodimm format this is about as good as it gets in the 64GB class you can install faster RAM if you drop to quad 4 x 8 = 32GB or 4 x 4 = 16GB but why would you want to do that? The CPU is mounted to the motherboard. To install such a great CPU will require a Bios update. But to get a Bios update you need a CPU that works on the motherboard. Since the CPU already has a box, you can sell it once you update the Bios. Or, just keep the CPU and use as is. Stick on boost 4.3GHz settings it will run as well as a Ryzen 7 3800X but with quad Ram advantages. This is an ITX motherboard please make sure your case supports installation of an ITX board (the mounting holes are different to ATX or Micro ATX). Many cases do support a variety of motherboards but nonetheless check to make sure. Motherboard tested and fully operational, Bios easy to work with. DO NOT power the motherboard on without connecting a pump, reservoir, and radiator with fan. Without a cooling loop the CPU will overheat and potentially damage critical parts of the motherboard. DO NOT POWER UP WITHOUT a proper cooling solution. The X299 chipset does not have internal graphics for the CPUs. You have to install a GPU/VGA to get a picture on your monitor. Minimally any GPU will do but it is common to connect a GT710 or 730. If you are building a gaming or workstation mini PC chances are you will be using a GPU anyway (although some Quadro models do not have HDMI out so be aware of that). Please be aware I cannot control delays incurred by the postal carriers. Evidenced at the bottom of motherboard with circle (Picture number 5). This capacitor is part of the VRMs used for overclocking (capacitors are usually used to smooth the power supply ripples). The Bitspower Monoblock has a manufacturing error. The threading on one of the holes for securing to the motherboard is not for an M2 screw (Picture number 4). DO NOT TRY TO INSTALL AN M2 OR ANY SCREW IN HERE, IT WILL GET STUCK AND YOU RISK DAMAGING THE MOTHERBOARD TRYING TO WRIGGLE IT OUT. Please take my advice here if you want that Monoblock to have screws in all its holes then you will have rethread that hole for a screw that will fit. However: This hole is on the far bottom corner that secures the block over the VRMs. The CPU block is fully secure to the CPU and will function as it should. The block fits flush with the motherboard and the bottom sections act as a heatsink for the VRMs. While VRMs typically run hot, the block is flush and secured with one screw on this side rather than two and clearly makes solid contact with the thermal pads and motherboard. You cannot form a gap between block and motherboard in that area without bending the motherboard (furthermore, do not try to do that). I think you will, in all likelihood, not have any issue whatsoever by missing one screw. I also noticed a very light surface scratch on the Monoblock itself. Aesthetically unnoticed particularly once you have your build installed in a tempered glass case with RGB on. If you decide to dismount the Monoblock, the original VRM heatsink is inside the Motherboard box. You will absolutely have to reinstall the original VRM heatsink do not forget to do this. If you do not have heatsinks on your VRMs not only will they run very hot you run the risk of motherboard damage and your CPU being incapable of hitting boost clocks. Even if you do not plan to overclock you must make sure the VRMs have a heatsink on them. Addendum: Q & As. I always wanted a small form factor workstation but got a good deal on a Xeon W-3175x after I bought this X299 board. Given the Xeon is on a different socket, I ended up finding a mini itx LGA 3647 board and decided to go this route build wise. Hence this X299 board is surplus to requirements. I really want to keep it (it is so cute and powerful) but how many PC’s do I need? I already have two and this would be #3. No I got to sell. Will you part this out I only need the motherboard since I already found a good i9 X series CPU? It wont work without bios update, hence you need the i7-7820X to do this. Sell the CPU once you are done updating the bios. Should I go for air cooling with this build? X299 chipset have CPUs that are power hungry and have higher TDPs than normal commercial chips. You will need a heck of a CPU air cooler that would dwarf this motherboard. Although I love air cooling it looks odd having a CPU cooler bigger than the motherboard. This is not a build for a low-profile cooler unless you run on stock frequencies (even then I would be concerned about thermals). Either invest in something like the Noctua NH-U12A or its 140mm fan variant. Awesome coolers, best ever, but a p. Roblem huge CPU cooler, perhaps bigger case needed. Liquid cooling = best solution for this ITX build. An all in one liquid cooler with thick 240mm or preferably a 360mm Radiator would work. Design a custom loop using soft tubing or hard tubing your build will look beautiful. My original plan was to install this in the Phanteks Evolv Shift ITX case with a custom loop built around a DDC pump and Phanteks Glacier R160 reservoir. Is the 2933MHz Ram fast enough given DDR4 has 5000MHz sticks out there? SoDimm Ram is more limited in selection and availability. The Ram is smoking for this build not many better options, if any. Do I need a GPU in this build? Yes but if you are not gaming then something like the GT710 or GT730 would be more than adequate for running a single or multiple monitors. If you are rendering or using Tensor cores for deep learning, scientific calculations and so on, then yes, obviously you will want a GPU, be it a Quadro model or Titan (or any of the popular gaming GPUs). Could I build a gaming PC out of this motherboard and CPU. Definitely but anything gaming related is going to need a GPU.
