Description

Definitely overkill. I waited a long time to build this one. But I also didn't want to have to upgrade anytime soon. The custom Water Loop was a little daunting but wasn't nearly as bad as it I thought it would be. I haven't tried to OC it yet and I'm not sure if I will. If I do, I definitely need to do more research before hand. Thank you so much to my friends for their help during the build. I could not have done it without you.

Shouldn't a couple of those RAM sticks be on the other side of the CPU?

Yep they should be 2x2 not 4x0

Maybe he wants to add another 64gb.

Yeah, from the looks of it.

That's what I've been reading up on. Haven't tried it yet though because it is a B**** to get back there. Might try this weekend though.

Try skimming through the manual that came with your motherboard. It should tell you what the optimal configuration is for multiple RAM sticks.

it looks good but my question is why the separate lan card?

When I first bought the MB I didn't realize that it supported Gigabit LAN connection. My ISP supports Gigabit so I bought a separate one. After I received the extra card I just rolled with it lol.

Is that a cable tie holding in the HDD at the front of the PC? (near the top)

Its about 6 tethered zipties lol. I'm considering taking it out and putting it in a HDD toaster to run my Plex server w/o turning on the PC.

AMAZING!!How's the watercooler working out for you?

Insane. I didn't know much about thermal throttling before this build. But after, I can say that the cooled components aren't even close to maxing out. The CPU and GPU's are oh so chilled!

Very nice build! How long have you been saving up?

  • 25 months ago

Thanks! I've been inadvertently saving for it for about 10 years lol. I decided its finally time since I'm 2.5 years out of college with a steady career.

why doesnt the rad next the res, not have any fans on it? Also did anyone realize that his 4tb HDD is ziptied in above the res?

  • 25 months ago

it has fans on the front, and im ok with the hard drive mount point :P

  • 25 months ago

Hahaha yea I ran out of space for the HDD so it seemed like the best solution. As cilvre said I have the fans in front door panel. Updated the imgur album to show.

Hi, this is an amazing build. I'm actually deciding between 1900x and 8700k at the moment for a gtx 1080 ti 2 way sli rig. Any chance you could do some 4k resolution sli gaming benchmarks with this? I need to see the numbers before I know which cpu to get. Thanks and sorry for the trouble!

Amazing build! Just have a question. Are you controlling the Trident Z RGB and if so how? I have the same setup as you and am a little timid to be messing around with the RGB lighting.

You got extremely lucky that you got the batch of STRIX 1080 Tis before the silent PCB layout change that made current EK blocks incompatible. On the used market, before EK makes an updated block, a pre-installed STRIX block may just be worth it's weight in gold at the moment.

Also, PrimoChill Vue... You need it in your life.

I'm doing a build really similar to this, 1900X and 2 1080ti. I ended up getting a bigger 1300W power supply though for O.C. Only 1000W seems a bit close, not sure if you can O.C. much with that. No water cooling for the GPUs either, gonna try and just get some really good air flow going.
