I understand where you are coming from. I waited a little and bought an i7-8700k and paired it with 1080ti. So i understand the cpu pain, but as far as gpu's are concerned i would never replace my 1080ti with any of the current gpu's. Maybe in the next couple of years.
Your setup just screams "sit in this chair". Love it. Hope it will give you many years of fun to come +1
Your deal hunting was very successful and you got a best of a machine for a solid price. +1
Nice build and i do remember the old cases - they were all practically the same :).
But i have to ask, how did the motherboard fit in the case? Did you just put the standoffs in and the motherboard just fit or were there some adjustments made?
A very good build and solid choice of hardware. Also, prices over in USA are really good, a 3700x costs at least 100$ more in EU. +1
At least you are honest. :) +1
Love your build, but that cooler price hurts a little just to look at it. Otherwise good job man +1
Your pics are unique in that your first pic is just an amazing setup. The second pic looks great, but couldn't go past the bottles of whiskey(if it is not i apologize), the third is a cat, but you are feeding it too much(he is just too fat) and the last pic is just a cool pic of the heart of the beast.
A really good job man +12 if i could.
I have yet to decide what i like more the title of your rig or the rig itself. Nice job man +1
Look at the manual, but usually the front panel connectors are from left to right: bottom left are hdd led's + and-
mid bottom are reset switches and the last one on the bottom right is reserved
upper left are power led's + and -
mid up are power switches
upper right is no pin
again check your manual it should be titled "JFP1" or something like that.
Try to move your ram where it should be. I have the be quiet dark rock pro 4 and regular height ram and there is 1mm of space left. No point in losing dual channel mode.
I understand your logic, but i have to say that your gpu stands out like a sore thumb amidst all the pretty high end parts. A great build none the less. +1
PC master race! nuf said :) +1 from me
Very nice build, especially if that is the price you payed for everything. Also are you going to flash the bios on your 5700? Hardware unboxed did confirm that you can gain performance by doing so.
My brother uses a similar build, but with the nvidia 970 and he still games and uses it daily.
So if you are going to take care of it and keep it clean, it should last you. Good build +1
Awesome first build. Could post a pic or two more. +1
Beautiful build, the name fits nicely. +1
Great build and if you paid 412€ for the 1080 ti, you just got yourself a 4k rig sub 1000€. +1 from me.
Nice build, especially considering the price. You've got a nice upgrade path from here.
Build looks really cool, but wouldn't mind a picture or two of your entire setup.
The right adjective used for your build and not for your pics, but +1 nonetheless.
So....much....shine. Hope that minesweeper looks amazing on your monitor and that your aio keeps the temps dowm :) +1 you deserve it
I agree with you that these black/gun metal builds look really slick and as buildzoid said "it's a steel box", if it works, it works. +1 mate.
I really like your build, the case and the cooler really compliment each other. But you have to repent for your sins, stop playing with a controller and start using a mouse and a keyboard or the gaming gods will never forgive this heresy.
Very nice build and a beast of a first build. +1
Very nice build, but where can you go from a 1080 ti? I understand the cpu part, but the gpu? Only a 2080 ti is actually better, every other card is, in the best case scenario, 10% better then your current gpu.
Good build and very solid choice of hardware +1
3 hrs for cable management and no pics. of your backbreaking labor and the final result?
Agree with the title. +1 that is it
Interesting and clean setup. Also, with a 2070 super, this thing of yours ascends into beast tier.
A very solid first build. Love the pics. as well and a very solid choice for the cooler, i own one as well and it performs beyond good. +1
Nice build and i think this build should do 1440p with no real problems and maybe even 4k in certain titles.
Your post reads like a crime novel :) Glad your pc works well and that everything ended in a positive way. +1 from me, if nothing else for your perseverance.
+1 For everything not just the rig, but the your entire setup. It looks really, really good. Good job.
And Big Daddy fits in nicely.
Like your build, the price/performance is definitely there +1. Also for some reason the first thing i saw was your desk and i really like it and i approve of Sekiro - shadows die twice, very good taste if you ask me.
Nice build +1 and i really like your whole setup, good job. Hope your temps are ok and i had the same problem with the psu when i built my rig and it took me an hour to figure it out, so you are definitely not the only one.
Great build and an awesome setup
Man this rig looks super good and a very solid choice of hardware. +1 for sure
And that power supply could provide power to a small community, but nonetheless it is a great machine.
14 years old, second build and it is a beast of a computer, nice job man. I was a lot older before i could get a rig similar to yours. +1 you deserve it.
I really like your setup and build +1, really clean look, but i have to say that paying for the 2080ti is just too much for me.
It is my opinion that the high end prices of nvidia are too much.
Man your setup looks really cool +1. The 1080 ti's are a very solid choice of hardware.
Nice build +1
Do you own the 1080 ti from before or did you buy it for this rig? Not saying anything bad, i own one as well, just curious because in my mind this is still top price to performance card for 400$.
Really like your setup man and the fallout new vegas flag/reference doesn't hurt either.
Very nice build man and don't fix it if it ain't broke.
Very nice build. How are your gpu temps?
300$ for an AIO. That is something, but i'll give you +1 none the less.
Your cable management skills are truly godlike. +1 just for that :)
First and most important reason, water and electricity - not a good combo; i don't care what anybody says.
Second The best tower heatsinks get very close to performing as good as an aio, some are even a little bit better, for example noctua's NH-D15. Custom loops are a different animal.
Third longevity and practicality. Once the heatsink is installed, there are very few points of failure. Theoretically you can have a heatsink for ten years with very little maintenance.
I run all my machines overclocked and 24/7, so again, as i said air-all day every day.
Love your build man +1 and that GPU is by far my favourite, looks wise.
Very solid choice of hardware the only thing i never do is put water in to a such a nice machine, air - all day, every day.
Love the build, looks really cool. +1 and i agree with you about the 1080ti 100%, i also own one and no way am i upgrading.
