Description

I just decided to try gaming at an old age. I hadn't built my own rig for 7-8 years and this is the first time in my life buying such an expensive GPU. I know it wasn't the best decision to go with RTX 2080 but at the time I pre-ordered, brand new 1080ti was around the same price. I am going to use this machine for gaming, video editing and virtual machines. I am a bit old school and don't like liquid near electronics so no water cooling for me. I want to try with stock cooler first and might upgrade to a better one later on.

Update 28/09/2018 for temperature in case someone is interested. I still don't quite get how XFR2 and PB2 and Ryzen temperatures work.

Bios: DOCP RAM to 3200mhz and everything else is optimized default settings. CPU Cooler: AMD Wraith Prism stock cooler with original thermal paste

Room Temperature - 20c +/-0.5. Case panels closed. CPU temp read by Ryzen Master and GPU temp read by MSI Afterburner CPU idle - 32c-40c (sometimes jump to 47c momentarily - i think that's ryzen and XFR2 weird behaviour) GPU idle - 32c-35c

CPU Tests: ASUS RealBench Stress Test 15mins - All cores boosted to 4000mhz if temp is below 65c. Over 65c, all cores boosted up to 3900mhz only. max temp at 73c. Prime95 - small FFT 5 mins - all cores boosted to only 3775mhz - max temp 64c Prime95 - Blend 10 mins - all cores boosted to 4000mhz if temp below 65c. Over 65c, all cores boosted to only 3900mhz. max temp 72c.

GPU Test: MSI Kombustor 1440p test - GPU temp jumped straight to 80c in 2 minutes - aborted test immediately.

Game: Monster Hunter World - 1440p Highest Setting (fog off) 2.5 hours - GPU temp max at 72c 99% load(with GPU fan manually set at 80% speed). CPU temp max at 62c, all cores boosted to 4000mhz but only 30-50% used.

This is like the richest and most handsome man in the club... Only 1 perk about him... He gay. Jk. I am not a big fan of RGB but this is really nice pc.

Trust me I'm not a big fan of RGB too but they come with the cooler and mobo. I adjusted it to static soft warm colour and it actually works quite well in dark room while using the computer. Plus, as the legend says, the RGB lights make your rig 30% faster so I had to have some of it. :)

I know... Most of the "top notch" modern parts these days come with RGB installed so its kind of a must. Its a great rig anyway and most of people could only wish to have pc that nice and capable. So, may it serve you well.

What was the actual total cost?

Don't know why RTX 2080 FE doesn't show price. The total cost is AUD$3,872 (monitor included).

The stock cooler is actually pretty good I would keep it

Australia summer is coming. The ambient temp could be in 35-40c on hot days. I'll see how it copes. :)

Congratulations! As of the time of this writing (26 Sep 2018) you have the only RTX ITX build on PCPP. I was secretly hoping that it would be in a comically compact case for some wicked performance/volume ratio but the H200 is such a fine case that I can't be mad. May she serve you well for many moons!

Nice~~~ I have a similar case (200i), but worried gpu would be a tight fit. I was really debating between this and evga's xc gaming, but ended up getting Nvidia's FE. But looks like's enough breathing room between psu shroud and gpu fans.

Do you have a little piece of plastic/metal holding up the gpu on the right side? Does it sag?

It doesn't really sag. I put that black thing there as a precaution. That black plastic thingy is the GPU stand that comes with the case (H200). It is supposed to use with the shroud grill but as you can see the middle of the GPU has quite a gap so the stand won't reach so I compromise putting it at the edge instead. Glad this helps as I was wondering the same thing about GPU breathing space before building this.

1+ - I like it!

this was just the build I needed to see. I'd been considering the founders 2080/nzxt h200 combo for my own build and was wondering how it looked. Now I know and my black/white/silver build is a go.

Solid build, clean look. I imagine temps on that card would be a bit lower if it had more clearance from the PSU shroud, but such is not the case.

Hey there! I have a very similar build as yours and I am wondering what are you GPU temperatures under full load? (With what fan curve and what ambient temps) Thanks!
