PC Build of the week – Corsair 5000X, Intel 10900KF & RTX 3080 Suprim X

A great all-round Gaming PC spec, this custom PC was purchased by our customer using our website configurator. The chosen spec includes the Intel 10th Gen 10900KF (still one of the best ever Intel CPUs in our opinion), the RTX 3080 GPU from NVIDIA which our customer contacted us about and opted to upgrade to a more premium model, the MSI Suprim X RTX 3080 (the Suprim X being our overall favourite GPU by the way!) and it was all neatly installed into the gorgeous Corsair iCUE 5000X black case.

The system totals nine fans, which includes six intake fans and three exhaust fans – for a positive pressure environment which is well suited to these modern cases and systems. When you opt for a positive pressure PC chassis then you are essentially introducing more air into the chassis than can be expelled, this ensures that all air entering the chassis has passed through filtration to keep dust out. The exhaust fans will expell most of the air from within the chassis, but as there are plenty of slots/cutouts in the main panels on the top, bottom and rear of the case, then the air is free to leave without the assistance of the exhaust fans. You might notice from the photos that three of the fans are hidden behind the back panel of the motherboard tray, well these are functional as the air is cleverly directed over the RAM sticks and VRMs of the motherboard, a neat trick!
