You're right there is no way a 2060 is being bottlenecked.

A piece of advise: turn the CPU cooler 90 degrees, so that the fan is on the front side, blowing through the heatsink, towards the back of the case. Then you are pulling nice clean air from the front two fans into the heatsink, instead of the warm air off the GPU like you have it.

So apparently I didn't take any photos of the machine full-view after installing the second 780, so i added a few at the end of the album from before i put the 2nd 780 in.

You can get a 500gb for less than $200, so not 50% more, but the actual benchmark speeds are unbelievably faster than SATA

This is actually not for VM's, it just running multiple NVR programs on it. But Ryzen is still very buggy in it's support of virtual machines, Intel seems to have much better compatibility.

I believe that power supply has flat cables, you could route it in the CPU cooler cut out in the motherboard tray and then inbetween the motherboard and the tray, i have done that multiple times and have no issues.

Always sell them on Craigslist, i usually don't have any problems and sell them for a small profit (usually less than $100)

Wow very awesome build! However, I would suggest getting 1 larger NVME drive instead of 2 SATA drives in the future, they are MUCH MUCH faster!

How is your gaming performance? Especially 1080P? I upgraded from a I7 7700k + GTX 1080, to a Ryzen 7 1700 + GTX 1080 ti, and LOST FPS, and everything got slower. So I sold that system and bought a 7700k + 1080 Ti and now i'm rocking super fast again!

I second this, the 270x's are NO WHERE near the capability of a 1060 6GB or 3GB for that matter

Those are all very good questions. I went with a PCI-e SSD instead of SATA because I always want to be on the cutting edge of technology, and have had SATA for years, I was ready to try the immense speed increase of an NVMe drive.

The 3TB drive is the same one I've had for years and already has all my games download on it. I dont really care if I have to wait a few extra seconds for a game you load off of a spinning drive instead of an SSD, and I'd much rather have 3TB of games downloaded instead of 500gb. A good example of this is Gears of War 4 is over 100gb, that would be over 1/5 of the drive right there.

Of course if money wasn't an issue I would've gotten a much bigger SSD, but I have found that 256gb is the perfect size and I don't run out of space from general use.

As for Pro instead of Home, it's got a lot of features that Home doesn't, like joining a domain, user management through the "computer management" applet, etc. Microsoft does a pretty good comparison of the two. I could be wrong but I think encryption isn't enabled on home edition too.

Keep up with asking good questions and seeking knowledge! Have fun!
