Description

Hey All,

So this has been an interesting journey, was a simple upgrade of my old simple 4670k and AMD RX480 to handle better VR, I went with a Ryzen CPU and a GTX1080, but with an upgrade to the Vive Pro necessitated a new CPU to handle multiplayer online racing,

I decided to bite the bullet and just go for broke. I never had an intention to watercool but once I got the 9900k and RTX 2080Ti the heat was too much and I was hitting thermal limits with the cooling solutions I had.

Finally I ended up with what you see here, and its an absolute beast! Lets me play what ever I want with a constant 90FPS in the Vive Pro and should be future proofed to run higher resolution headsets into the future (Such as the pi max).

Longest wait was for the CableMod custom cables, took months to arrive, but really finished the build!

Super happy with the end results, this site was an absolute resource in seeing what I wanted and what fitted and looked good. Would not have been possible without this site. So thanks to the community!!!

Just finishing off - Have managed to get the GPU overclocked to 2100mhz, memory to 8000mhz (16000) and the CPU to 5.0ghz at 1.3v (bit higher than I would like), temps are being managed to around 45-50 for the GPU under load and 85 for the CPU under a blender load, but around 56 when gaming.

Cinebench R20 result: 4919 CB (-2 AVX Offset)

Part Reviews

CPU

Probably not the best bang for buck CPU available, but single thread performance is awesome.

also runs extremely hot, AIO coolers cannot handle this cpu with an overclock, and some CPU waterblocks cannot disperse the heat generated by this fast enough.... cooling is difficult.

Motherboard

Super expensive motherboard, with a limited feature set. HOWEVER build quality is amazing and really is great for those with a beefy CPU like the 9900k

Memory

Do not love the GSKILL RGB program.... However works well with other RGB programs and the ram itself is faultless

Video Card

For the price, this was the best bang for buck 2080Ti available in Australia. It was on special brand new for around $800 AUD less than other 2080 Ti's that were available at the time, yet overclocks really well with 8000mhz on the memory and 2080hz on the GPU. Highly rated

Case

most versatile case you would ever find, super flexible for cooling, distribution blocks and cable management. best case for a home computer!!!

How much did this build cost? A lot of parts are missing prices.

I would dread to add up the costs.

About another 600 USD in water-cooling parts plus another few 100 for the missing parts

Looks amazing. Should be a feature. Out of sheer curiosity, why did you go with the cheapest 2080ti, only to wind up spending bank to cool it?

Only asking because im about to order the same exact card and I wanted to see what you'd say :)

I didn't initially plan to watercool, and the 2080Ti EVGA black was $800 less than alternatives here in Australia. So I bought it and then had over heating issues... So then decided to watercool.... Given how much cheaper the card was I would make the same decision again. But as the better version cards are now cheaper I would buy a better card if buying the parts today

Also just did a timespy run, a reference 2080ti gets about 12500 for the graphics score and this managed a 15300 score. So even though it's cheap, it still overclock a really well

Pretty innovative, compared to what other people do on the fourms, did it take long to setup the AIO cooler?
