    My Adata XPG Gammix S11 Prowere were very cost effective . Not gen 4 though. Still. I am very satisfied with them. I have two, one with 1TB and one with 2TB. Again, not gen 4. Perhaps they have a good gen 4 model too. I haven't looked.

    if you're getting the 5900x... you really should have dropped the money on the noctua NH-D15S... and if you wanted it sexy, chromax black model.

    5800x and NH-D15S. (the S variation for the offset, super necessary for asrock boards as the top slot wouldn't be functionally usable otherwise, which may be a problem for your nh-u14s you've chosen.

    Is that because the memory would not fit due to low radiator location on NH-D15?

    Just joking, this is my solution, if @Judas is interested in the other heatsink he can swipe it off of me, meanwhile, I ordered the one he suggested just now and also change of graphics card, the other one didn't end up shipping so got this one instead:

    ZOTAC Trinity OC GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12GB GDDR6X PCI Express 4.0 ATX Video Card ZT-A30810J-10P:
