Kraken Power Corsair PC - RTX 3080 i9-9900KF Gaming Build V2 - $2849 + Shipping @ BPC Tech

550

Not a bad deal considering the parts run up to be around $1,200 excluding the GPU, which seems to be going >$1600 on its own.

Note: doesn't seem any decent CPU cooling is included so probably best to order that separately.

EVGA PSU going for $149-159, pcpartpicker just didn't have it on the site.so I used equivalent priced PSU.
Also not sure what brand RAM or SSD they're using in the build.

    How's this deal vs the one at $3169 on the site with a 5600x and more RAM + better cooler?

    • +1

      Didn’t see that one. I think the deal I’ve posted is good if you’re after the cheapest 3080 prebuilt at the moment. You could always upgrade the ram and cooler at a later date if/when required.

      So depends if you want to spend the extra $320 for 16GB more ram, AMD cpu and better cooler. Decisions decisions

    • +4

      The AMD one has a better upgrade path for the CPU down the line being able to go up to 16 cores, the 9900k was the best CPU that will fit in that board and its now several generations old. The AMD one is also gen4 pcie so you have a better upgrade path for graphics cards and nvme storage as well.

      The intel one will be way more colourful with RGB though if you care about that.

    • better psu too on the other one

  • Note: doesn't seem any decent CPU cooling is included so probably best to order that separately.

    Not like they know how to mount it properly anyway lol

    • +9

      Ok seems like an explanation is required. You know that well known Gamers Nexus on AIO mounting? Yeah so BPC mount it the way you're not supposed to. They also mount the fans around the wrong way as documented in previous 5600x + 3080 deals.

      Source: I have their builds, their own images have shown it and previous deals to go by.

      • +1

        I just got a BPC build and noticed they did things like put the CPU fan on the CPU_OPT header and the case fan on the CPU_FAN header. It is just the stock intel cooler, but now you have me wondering if they might not have even installed this properly…?

        • +2

          If your cooler was to stop spinning the CPU_OPT header won't prevent your PC from booting. Assuming it's 4 pin it'll still control voltage and fan speed at least. Definitely should be in the CPU_FAN header.

          My other issue was that all cooling was set to exhaust. Literally no intake anywhere.

          They also said that the USB-C port would work despite me pointing out their motherboard doesn't support it. They had no interest in changing to one that does (even offered to pay more) and later said in PM they misunderstood. Their solution however was not followed through.

          • +1

            @Clear: Exactly! It was a switch I made pretty quickly, and makes me wonder how many won't realise what they've done - especially given that many will likely be buying a built system because they don't have the knowledge to do it themselves, or know to even check. I was just being lazy -grin-

            They didn't seem overly knowledgeable about their products and gave some questionable advice, but I guess the good prices compensate for that if you can do your own research.

            • +1

              @Finner: I only went prebuilt because I wanted a 3080 and it was too hard to get hold of otherwise. Was hoping for the build to be ok but now seems I need to rebuild it altogether.

              Had they used a full ATX motherboard I could fit an PCIe card to make the USB-C port on the case work without blocking airflow on the GPU. BPC get defensive about using ATX motherboards for some reason.

            • @Finner: Would you be able to list out exactly would you did, as I am looking at buying and want to just email them directly to make sure they do it right?

      • I just ordered a prebuilt from BPC and also noticed that the AIO was setup at the front as exhaust in the images. I didn't think too much of it but after reading this and some comments on OzBargain I'm a little concerned (plus they only had 1 stock fan from the case included in the build so little to no intake).

        I'm new to the world of PC building/parts but have watched a few yt vids by Gamer Nexus and others. I think I may purchase additional fans and ask them to set it up with the build… we will see if they actually set it up correctly though..

        • The rear fan for me was setup as exhaust as well. Hopefully they'll listen and do yours right. Their builds are more dodgy than what MSY produce.

      • Would you be able to say which way they should mount it? Is it supposed to be like this https://imgur.com/a/b5cMt4Z

        This is for the https://www.bpctech.com.au/kp-ga-machogaming-krakenpower-mac...

        • That first image is correct the heat pipes should be going down to the bottom of the radiator.

    I've been using intel for my whole life and really want to try AMD

    whats better for gaming? does it even matter?

      • +4

        isn't it like one of the most components for a computer? just wanted to make the right decision before i buy one i guess?

        • +5

          Tbh, any modern CPU with more than 6 cores 12 threads is good for gaming and you can't go wrong with either Intel or AMDs latest CPUs
          That being said
          AMDs ryzen 5000 series CPUs are marginally faster than Intel's latest offerings
          And also more power efficient

        • +3

          You asked about the brand so that was what my answer was about. The CPU itself matters more than the logo on it.

        • +3

          Poor wording probably

    • +1

      go with the one thats cheaper, there are lots of amd fan boys that will pay extra when they actually are not even using it
      for gaming right now I would say Intel is the best, if you wanted mutili tasking or video editing then look at amd

      • for gaming, I think 11400F would be cost effective if you can find one at retail price, it is out of stock at most places.

  • Can you downgrade this with a 3070?

      • Always worries me when drop down boxes have options that are already included in description.
        Eg. RAM drop down has 16GB add $29 but description and specs already says 16GB RAM.

        • +1

          i think the RAM upgrade is just for RGB lighting

  • +6

    I've just done a conversion and the $2,500 I spent in 1998 on a 486SX33, 4Mb RAM, 120 Mb HDD, 14" SVGA monitor is roughly $4,700 in today's money. Historically, this is a bargain!

    • +6

      but that came with a monitor….this doesnt, its just the box

      • +3

        Thats a shame, I had a look at how much a monitor would cost from Apple and it looks like monitors these days are roughly 10k.

  • Why all their builds always exclude wifi? I understand most will have Windows as an option, but not everyone's router/modem is right next to their PC.

    • I would imagine most do, easy enough to remedy.

    • i spend extra on wifi board and never use it, if you play games competitively you will want to avoid wifi

      • Not when your modem and PC are upstairs and downstairs apart, so LAN connection is not possible in our case.

        • ever heard of net comm adapters, they carry signal through electrical wire - works as good as LAN with min latency
          all you need is power point near modem and power point near the comp

          • @botchie: wasnt silky smooth in my case. Things is, electrical in the house could be running in different circuits, not sure if thats the right word. I.e. half house is one and another half - in different, apparently was my case since modem and PC were on opposite sides of the house…

            also anything electrical plugged in everywhere creates distortion.

            so ended up with getting cable to PC through the roof, 2 holes poked in the ceiling.

    • Funnily enough, their best value build (6700XT for $1700) actually does have wifi, although it's 'only' AC instead of AX, and the mobo is an A520: https://www.bpctech.com.au/kp-fenrirgaming-kraken-power-fenr...

      • You know what this seemed like a better deal

  • Any point in getting this if you play on 1440p and don't want to upgrade for another 6 years.

    I have the 980Ti purchased 5 years ago for about $750.
