Description

Has been a long time since I have last assembled a PC.

Been all my professional life working with computers, but for the last many years, all my computers were laptops.

Took this one as a challenge to update me with the latest trends, and as well as a project for me and one of my son’s to learn all the parts that make a computer to work.

This is mostly to be used as a gamer PC and to do some basic work stuff.

All the physical assembly went smooth, and the computer boot successfully at the first attempt.

The following remarks:

  • Case: a) More space in the back of the case for cable management would be very much appreciated; b) There are no screws to remove the 5.25” cage…
  • Floe Riing RGB 360 TT: a) The length of the aio tube is too short (at least for the way as I installed the radiator…); b) With the radiator installed on top of the case the RGB fans do not have much visibility.

The windows and drivers installation were also very smooth, although, despite I have installed the wireless and ethernet network card drivers (as well as all other ASUS drivers), I still have an unknown network controller in the device manager.

Will shortly update the description with more details including temperatures and performance metrics.

All comments and feedback are welcomed.

I’d return the ram and get 4x8GB. You’re gimping the CPU without quad channel. Other than that, nice build.

You really want quad channel on Threadripper, same with a heatsink built for threadripper

The current one won't cover the die

hello i am new, couldnt you set it up in the mobo to use 2 dual channel kits as quad channel?

Yes, but there’s no guarantee that the dual kits will work together. A quad channel kit guarantees that all 4 sticks work together.

Not really. Pure standard Nvidia Rtx 2080 ti.

Has rtx died yet? I was going to start a build but I don’t know whether to put an rtx 2080 ti or 2 gtx 1080 ti. Can anyone help me choose?

Well.. I was able to get it directly from Nvidia, so the RTX was a bit more expensive then the overclooked gtx I was looking for. I preferred to have the latest technology instead.

2X GTX 1080 Ti you can no longer get new. You have to look on the 2nd hand market and they're already inflating prices due to demand.

GREAT BUILD!!! i recently build my own tr4 system. my cpu is the 2950x and my gpu is the asus 2080 ti strix. I also have 2x8 gb gskill trident z rgb ram at 3000 mhz cl15. The 2 ram stick are installed in the outer left and right ram slots in the mobo because the 2nd ram slot (close to the cpu) doesnt read the ram stick. This ram config is not recommended by the mobo manual but in bios says dual channel 3000 mhz with xmp.But i have some problems with my computers performance. When playing call of duty black ops 4 blackout for example in 25460x1440p everything maxed out, v sync off i get about 58-110 fps (80 average) and my gpu usage is also low at about 45-70 percent. This happens in other games too. In pubg i get 90-135 fps (110 average with drops to 70 when looking at a city from a high position) with everything on ultra and vsync off. My gpu usage gets to 90 percent but gpu clocks are at 1850 mhz most of the time. In forza horizon 4 in 2k everything maxed out i get 65-105 fps (80-85 average) and gpu usage is 60-70%Things get worse in call of duty black ops 3 when i get 85-120 fps in zombies or multiplayer while other 2080ti systems get 200 fps or more. In fortnite i get 100- 140 fps with framedrops to 65-75 in places with many buildings. Its like my cpu is a bottlenech for my gpu. I ran a Userbenchmark and these are the results: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/15211915 Could you please tell me if your cpu bottleneck your gpus aswell and also what kind of performance you get in those games with your beast of a pc??? Because it looks like mine isnt as beastly as i would like to :( Could the problem be the dual channel ram??? Thanks in advance and sorry for the huge comment.
