What feels like a very long time now, because I am in India, and everything takes its sweet time to reach here.
Every release this year, for CPU, GPU, and even motherboards has been somewhat controversial, but I think that we’ll be able to have a high build today after I spent close to 50 hours in selecting every component.
Let’s build the most expensive pc build.

Most expensive pc build in India
The case we’ll build in today is the extraordinary Lian Li PC-O11 dynamic, which has won several examples of the year awards, and for reasons that you’ll see, I think it is the best case ever made.
We’ll also have my friend Vaibhav helping me out in building this PC.
For the power supply Corsair RM850x 2018
We have the Corsair RM850x 2018, and it gets mounted on the side of our case, which also supports adding a second power supply if you want to add that for some reason.
Motherboard for expensive pc build
We have the ASUS Republic of Gamers Maximus XI Hero Wi-Fi, Call of Duty Black ops 4 Edition.
Yes, it has the Skull and CoD logo on the board, but this was the only version available in India, plus it doesn’t hurt to get a 60 dollar game with it.
I bought this before the VRM analysis came out on YouTube, but in the real world, this board does perform very well, and for multiple reasons, I wouldn’t choose any other motherboard for this build correctly.
Then we prepare the bracket for our CPU cooler, so we won’t need to keep turning the case around later.
For cooling our CPU
We have the Cooler Master ML360R ARGB liquid cooler, with a 360-millimeter radiator.
We won’t be using the fans that came with the cooler on the radiator, because we will have even better-looking fans, so these ARGB fans are going to exhaust air out of the top.
SSD for expensive pc build
I removed almost all of the PCIe slots from the case to make space for out vertical GPU mount later. We have a half-terabyte Samsung SATA M.2 SSD for our boot drive.
Then we prepare our liquid cooler for mounting, which involves the use of a lot of screws.
You can even use the same SSD in pc build which has a normal i5 or r5 processor. This SSD will also increase the speed of a budget pc build made for 1080p.
For our CPU, Intel Core i9 9900K
We have the Intel Core i9 9900K, with one of the most special unboxing experiences.
Specification of intel core i9 9900K
The 9th Generation Intel CPUs have a soldered IHS, which is supposed to manage the thermals better, but the 9900K runs very hot in-spite of that and consumes 150W without even overclocking.
Which has generated some controversy, and it is tough and inefficient to overclock.
Then we install our liquid cooler’s pump, and yes, we had another friend joining us for the build.
You can get this plastic front on the pump customized, which I’ll look into later.
The Maximus XI Hero comes with this part which makes the installation of buttons on the case much more comfortable.
For the RAM modules Skill TridentZ 3200MHz RGB RAM
Skill TridentZ 3200MHz RGB RAM, which is still the best looking RAM after years of its release, in my opinion.
There’s not much to installing RAM, don’t fix it in the wrong slots like The Verge.
Then we have to make connections for the Corsair RGB fans to this RGB hub, which then gets connected to the Lighting Node Pro.
Which will connect the motherboard’s USB header, and this requires 2 SATA power pins.
For our GPU, MSI RTX 2080 Ti
We have the MSI RTX 2080 Ti Gaming X Trio, the first card to allow maxed-out 4K 60fps performance in modern games, Ray Tracing is heading in a better direction.
But DLSS is the feature that I think is going to make a big difference in the performance and will make this worth its 12 Lakh Rs.
Price tag, it is a pretty large and hefty card, but greatness rarely comes in small packages.
How to install GPU
Installing the GPU with vertical mount install is not easy as the case got in the way, so I think it will be a better idea to install the GPU in the mount first, then install the whole combination in your case.
For the case lighting, we have the ARGB lighting kit from corsair, which connects with the Lighting Node Pro which came with our Corsair Fans, lighting strips are the easiest and most cost-effective way to spice up your rig.
And now, the moment of truth.
What you will get from the motherboard
Instead of managing the cables, we just used the hard drive mount to push everything into the case, which we usually wouldn’t do, but after 7 hours it got quite exhausting.
Then we finally close off the side panel, then the board on another side, the group on the front, and the top panel which secures everything with just two thumbscrews, which is why I love this case so much.
