Best Value 14900k PC Build


  • CPU: Intel Core i9 14900k
  • Motherboard – ASRock Z790 Riptide WiFi
  • RAM – Corsair Vengeance 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR5-6000 CL30
  • Cooler – ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II 360
  • SSD – Samsung 980 Pro 2 TB
  • Graphics Card – MSI GAMING X SLIM GeForce RTX 4080
  • Power Supply – Corsair RM850e (2023)
  • Case – NZXT H6 Flow

If you’re looking to invest in the ultimate gaming and editing rig at a reasonable budget, then this PC will offer the best value with the Intel Core i9 14900K.

Starting with the motherboard, I’ve chosen the ASRock Z790 Riptide WiFi. ASRock revised the PG Riptide with native support for Intel 14th-gen CPUs as well as WiFi 7. The PG Riptide was a decent motherboard but would go largely unnoticed until ASRock released this newer motherboard. It features a strong 16-phase VRM design which can easily handle an overclocked i9 14900K at 5.8 GHz on all cores and has support for DDR5 8000 MT/s RAM. The design is gorgeous and stealthy with purple accents on the VRM heatsinks and an RGB underglow at the bottom.

For RAM, simply go with the Corsair Vengeance 32 GB kit of DDR5 RAM. It’s a foolproof option that’s plenty for any game and a lot of productivity apps. It’s rated at 6000 MT/s with a CAS Latency of 30 ns which should be plenty fast and snappy.

The Intel Core i9 14900K is a hot chip under a full load that can spit out almost 250 Watts of heat! Thankfully, the ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II 360 is the perfect cooling solution. It is a large 360 mm AIO with native LGA 1700 support and it even comes with a small fan on the CPU block to help cool off the VRMs. This helps immensely and the result is an almost 5 degree reduction in VRM temps which means even better system stability.

For the main drive, the Samsung 980 Pro 2 TB is the obvious choice to go with. It is the best PCIe 4.0 SSD and has a 2 GB DRAM cache so it never slows down.

For the GPU I went with the MSI GAMING X SLIM GeForce RTX 4080. It is great that MSI is taking steps to improve the gigantic designs of the RTX 40 series of GPUs with the GAMING X SLIM lineup as this RTX 4080 is a true 3-slot card instead of a 3.5-slot that most other 3-slot cards really are.You can expect to play any game on this card at 4K with ray tracing and even use it for professional applications.

To power this entire build, I used the Corsair RM850e. The RM850e is one of the best PSUs in the market that ticks all the right boxes. Its efficiency is rated at 80-Plus Gold, it is fully modular and is ATX 3.0 and PCIe 5.0 ready.

Finally, my favorite part of this entire build is the NZXT H6 Flow Mid Tower Case. It has a hybrid design that combines the benefits of a dual chamber and a mid-tower case. NZXT wanted to jump on the trend where both the side panel and the front of the case are completely transparent which makes the entire PC visible from the front without obstruction.

NZXT came up with a brilliant new design where the back of the case segregates the power supply and cables which completely tidies up the insides of the case. The front fans have been moved to the right at an angle so they can continue to provide airflow while simultaneously being hidden from direct view. They also extended the back of the case and reduced the height giving the entire case a lot more stability. The reduced height also makes it look smaller than any other mid-tower case while having the same volume.

In conclusion, if you are looking to get the most value of a 14900k and get a PC that can do everything, then the i9 14900K and RTX 4080 are a killer combo.

This PC can easily cover you from every angle whether it is for 4K gaming, streaming, editing, or even doing 3D modeling and animation. The estimated cost for this build is around $2600 which is not cheap but you wouldn’t build a pc with the top processor on the market if you were on a budget in any case!

Best Premium 14900k PC Build


  • CPU: Intel Core i9 14900k
  • Motherboard – Asus ROG STRIX Z790-A GAMING WIFI II
  • RAM – Corsair Vengeance RGB 64 GB (2 x 32 GB) DDR5-6000 CL30
  • Cooler – ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II 360
  • SSD 1 – Samsung 980 Pro 2 TB
  • SSD 2 – Western Digital Black SN850X 4 TB
  • Graphics Card – MSI SUPRIM LIQUID X GeForce RTX 4090
  • Power Supply – be quiet! Dark Power Pro 13 1600 W 80+ Titanium
  • Case – NZXT H7 Flow

If money is not an issue and you just want the best PC that money can buy, then this premium build is going to suit you well.

Starting with the motherboard, I went with the Asus ROG STRIX Z790-A GAMING WIFI II. I chose this board because it offers nearly every feature one could ask for. It’s not only a superb gaming board but also ideal for those building a workstation.

In addition to its excellent 16-phase VRM configuration, you also get WiFi 7 with Bluetooth 5.4, and 5 PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots. The rear I/O even features both a CMOS clear button and a BIOS flashback button for easy troubleshooting and diagnosis without needing to access the motherboard’s internals.

To cool the Intel Core i9 14900K, we can stretch the budget quite a lot in a premium build. However, it is quite hard to pass on the ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II 360 because frankly, it is an unbeaten champion among AIO coolers. Sure, it does not have an LCD screen or a fancy design, but it is undeniably excellent at cooling the 14900K in all scenarios.

At such a high budget, I recommend going with at least a kit of 64 GB of RAM. For this PC, I chose the Corsair Vengeance RGB 64 GB which is a 2*32 GB kit of DDR5 6000 MT/s at CL30. You can always add more RAM, but for pretty much anything, this is going to be plenty.

Storage is a mix of Samsung 980 Pro 2 TB and Western Digital Black SN850X 4 TB. Both of these are some of the absolute best PCIe 4.0 SSDs in the market and should serve you well for a very long time.

For the GPU, I went with the MSI SUPRIM LIQUID X GeForce RTX 4090 for its remarkable performance and cooling capability. After almost a year, I still cannot find a variant of the RTX 4090 that is overall better than the SUPRIM LIQUID X. It stays whisper quiet and cool even under a full load.

To power this beast I went with the “be quiet! Dark Power Pro 13 1600 W 80+ Titanium”. I know that this is way too overkill even for this type of machine, but the massive headroom and 80-Plus Titanium efficiency means that it will be fine running anything. You can easily use this PSU for the next 12 to 15 years and is likely going to be the last part that gets replaced.

Finally, the case for this PC is the NZXT H7 Flow. This case is probably going to become what the 4000D Airflow is for Corsair – affordable, fun to work with, uncompromising, and most importantly, easy to recommend. It is a decently large ATX case that has plenty of room for cable management and even hides the cables in the front as well thanks to a large striped cover. The airflow is completely unobstructed and the overall space in this case lets you fit any cooler whatsoever.

In summary, if you’ve got a generous budget and are aiming for top-tier performance with the Intel Core i9 14900K, then this PC is the perfect fit. It will cost you around $4400 but you will get top of the top performance.

Best mini ITX 14900k PC Build


  • CPU: Intel Core i9 14900k
  • Motherboard – MSI MPG Z790I EDGE WIFI
  • RAM – Corsair Vengeance 64 GB (2 x 32 GB) DDR5-6000 CL30
  • Cooler – NZXT Kraken 240
  • SSD – Western Digital Black SN850X 4 TB
  • Graphics Card – MSI GAMING X SLIM GeForce RTX 4080
  • Power Supply – Asus ROG LOKI 850 W 80+ Platinum
  • Case – Cooler Master MasterBox NR200

Finding a PC that can perform under any condition and still be small enough to fit inside a shoebox is a massive challenge. However, if you are on the lookout for a mini ITX PC with athe Core i9 14900K, then this PC should fit you just fine.

Let’s begin with the motherboard; I went with the MSI MPG Z790I EDGE WIFI. It doesn’t waste your time or money with useless antics. Instead, it is a decently priced board that offers all the important things that you’d need in an ITX board. The only standout features are that it has a PCIe 5.0 M.2 SSD slot and that it is white. However, its strong 10-phase VRM will keep the i9 14900K stable even at an overclock of 5.6 GHz.

Have in mind that since this motherboard came out before the 14900K, it may need to have its BIOS updated before it can be used.

To cool the i9 14900K, I chose the NZXT Kraken 240 which is a gorgeous AIO cooler with an LCD screen! Although the screen isn’t going to do much in an ITX PC which is mostly completely packed, I chose this cooler for its incredible cooling capability. It can keep the 14900K under 60 degrees even in a tight situation without making any noise.

For storage, you could go with any PCIe 4.0 SSD, but my vote is for the Western Digital Black SN850X 4 TB. Since ITX PCs get less upgraded than ATX PCs, it’s a smart move to go big on the SSD upfront.

Just like going big on the SSD, it is also important to upsize RAM memory in a mini ITX PC. While most people go with 32 GB of RAM, 64 GB is going to serve much longer without the need to upgrade. That’s why I went with Corsair’s Vengeance 2 X 32 GB DDR5 kits that are fast and reliable as they operate at 6000 MT/s CL30.

The Asus ROG Loki 850 W 80+ Platinum takes care of powering this PC. It is an elegant PSU with ATX 3.0 and PCIe 5.0 support and it even comes with a 12VHPWR connector.

Most PSUs end up looking dull and are usually an afterthought aesthetically so they are tucked away where no one can see them, but even then, Asus has built a unit that is aesthetically pleasing to look at.

For the case, I am sticking to the Cooler Master NR200. It is hard to find an ITX case that lets you build in as easily as you would in an ATX case. This is why I keep coming back to the NR200 because of its ability to fit in a large 280 mm AIO so fitting the NZXT Kraken 240 will be no issue.

Lastly, the GPU in this PC is the MSI GAMING X SLIM GeForce RTX 4080. It is a full-length 3-slot graphics card that can run anything you throw at it. The best part is that it will very comfortably fit inside the NR200 and still perform exceptionally well without heating up.

In conclusion, if you are an ITX enthusiast and want the best possible performance out of your mini PC in any scenario, then this i9 14900K ITX PC should do the trick for an estimated budget of around $3000.
