Description

So after tinkering and more tinkering I finally was able to build a RGB build I think I will like for the foreseeable future. Thanks to MSI for Providing the beta BIOS so I could use the 4 sticks of 32GB ram that was overclocked to 3600 with no issues.

Did you use 2 rbg node to connect with the 7 fans?

I used 2 of the nodes since each 3 pack came with one but joined them to a splitter and plugged into the motherboard as my board had a builtin corsair node port.

What is this splitter called or the corsair built in node port?

Very impressive 16 core build! Congratulations!!

What are you using it for?

Have you OC'd it?

How are the thermals?

Using it for gaming and video edits. Oc'ed 2 cores to 4.6Ghz and single core to 4.65. Thermals are great! lows 30s at idle and mid 60s under load but i've seen it as high as 70 under benching.

You should flip the top fans so they're exhausting the rising hot air

I have it where the top and bottom are intakes and the rad and back are exhausting. I found this to be the best setup temps wise. GPU and CPU are cooler than when I had the rad fans doing intake and top fans doing exhaust. Hope that makes sense.

how did you get the fans like that

That's a great build, but for 5,000 dollars, wouldn't it be worth it just to upgrade to a 1660, 2060, 2070, or even a 2080 ti?

The 1660, 2060, 2070 would be a downgrade for me and the 2080 pretty even maybe 5% increase in performance and the 2080 ti slightly more but not big enough of a performance to upgrade.

I'm aware of that, but the 2060 has a pretty stellar price point of around 300 dollars, making it good for an upgrade, especially as the prices of GPU are lowering. Correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I've seen 1080s aren't going for significantly less than the 2060. However, if you don't desire ray-tracing, I'd say what you have is great. Excellent build by the way.

I've had the 1080ti since 2017. There was no point in upgrading to latest gen to see a 10%-15% improvement as the cost benefit wasn't there and only card that can outdo the 1080 ti in performance would be the 2080 ti and only does marginally better in the games I play. As for ray tracing there is only 20-21 games that support it and I don't play any of them except for Battlefield V which I bought a few years back. Trying to get 1080 ti is hard as the performance for price beats anything nvidia has out right now and mostly sold out.

1080 ti is on par with 2080.

Yeah, the 1080ti is really good and is even better than a 2070 super

Great build, though

None of them except for the 2080 Ti would really be an upgrade . . . maybe the 2070 if you really value ray tracing?

For the generic price of 400$ used the 1080ti outperforms the 2070 super in most circumstances
