Ah yeah for those 3 fans connected to the motherboard directly I control the fan curve in the BIOS, the other 6 I control with the iCUE Software. The 3 that I'm controlling in BIOS are the ones on top of the cpu aio radiator (the 3 on the right that are stacked one above the other), which are really extra anyways to create a push pull configuration to cool down the cpu and get some fresh air into the case. The other 6 are more what I'd consider for airflow purposes within the case and cooling down the gpu, pulling air from the bottom up to the surface and out.
The rgb is all synced because 3 of the fans are attached to an rgb hub which gets attached to the commander pro.
3 of them plug into the motherboard, the other 6 go into the commander pro (couldnt figure out how to put it on the parts list!), its like an rgb + fan hub.
Lol no thats my Work computer, at my job, I dont own that, wish I did! Those guys costed like 10K.... this is $3K ;D
:D! Yeah I wasn't trying to screw this one up lol. Thanks so much
It’s very quiet actually! Surprisingly quiet... lol. I did make a custom fan curve which helped. Yes I do plan to get more ram soon, thank you for the tip! :)
Not these Corsair ones :/
Thank you! Those gpu temps still sound great tho, I know the fans can be loud but is there any other issue running them fast/high? Thank you again
Heyy how did you get the corsair fans to screw into the case with the tiny screws that it comes with?
Howd you get the corsair to screw into the case with the tiny screws it came with?
hey how did you get your corsair fans to screw into the case? the screws they come with are so tiny!!

Hey! this looks great, I appreciate it Love the G skill memory, Im getting the same thing.
I wanted to confirm, you can remove the sata drives and open up the whole right side with the Phanteks case?? Is that correct is that what you did? Thanks!
Hey! How are temps for 2 gpus at max power? I reaaallly want this case too, but people have me concerned with airflow in here for 2 (or maybe even a 3rd hybrid) gpus. Thank you
Got it. When testing you didnt use 2 gpus right, just 1? I wonder how temps would be with 2? And I wonder if you could do 2 + a hybrid card without temp issues...
Anyways, thank you so much for answering my questions the best you can.
Ok, would a mining rig style work in the Lian Li O11 Dynamic case? Cuz im loving that case...XD
I'll look up what a mining rig looks like.... (thats with risers im guessing?)
Oh so sorry, thank you anyways.. Do you think though that 4 gpus would fit in here with budget watercooling? or only 3? I will try to figure out the rest :) Thank you so much
Thank you! would this allow me to have 3 or 4 gpus without air cooling or water cooling??
Okk Thank you!!!
So could you help me figure out what parts I would need to build 3-4 gpus with watercooling...or is the watercooling going to be very very expensive? Sorry im new to this, and you seem like you know what you are doing (I checked out your other builds). I will check that build out!
wait, but dont shute 100%? what do you mean by that?
Do you think 3 gpus could be placed in here with budget watercooling options or with the 3 fans below?
Thank you so much!! Would this hold 4 gpus comfortably....with proper cooling? Or at the least, 3 gpus? How would you recommend setting up cooling for it? I love this case and really want to make it work!! Do any fans come with this case?
Love the experiments you did, thank you soo much.
Is that ok to keep the cpu fan facing out of the case like in the first photo?
Really?? Someone told me it would be okay though...how would I know if they would work?
lol no one 1080ti isnt enough, why a better cpu though?
See what people use for octane results below:
yes the gpu has that technology, but im not using it, I'll be good with more than 2 gpus. See how many these people put together for octane:
Thank you! Im worried to do water cooling because I know its riskier.... and im really new to this.
Im not using SLI though, Octane doesnt need that, it sees and utilizes all gpus.
Why wouldnt the 1080ti be the best for rendering? its 2nd best next to the new 2080tis, its what almost everyone uses in the industry.
But there are no other issues you see? Cooling wise, or part fitting wise?
ok, thats so amazing. Thank you, I really appreciate your help. A 1,300w power supply cable would suffice for 4 GPUS in the future?
Ok. So the motherboard has 4x pcie slots that are 16 lanes....
Can a GPU AND a wifi card be inserted into one PCIE slot?
Then another GPU on its own
Then an NVME Slot
And room for one more GPU.
Am I understanding this right?
Thank you! Do some of these cases come with a wifi card? Does a wifi card need a pcie slot?
So it seems like the threadripper 1920x can technically handle more pcie slots than these motherboards have (like 6-8 but motherboards only have 4)? Sorry trying to understand this.
Yesss I was looking at the Asus PRIME X399-A or the ASRock X399, so im heading in the right direction!
For a case, what do I need to look for? 8 full height expansion slots? or 8 medium height? etc...
Ahh okay so let me understand this, its fine for me to use x8 for those 1080ti gpus...
And there are 64 lanes ('Note that 48 lanes are dedicated for multiple GPUs' according to the link above), and 8 pcie ports?....
So that means I could have 6 GPUs with this CPU? And still have room for a NVMe ssd? Whats a riser?
Would any X399 have 4 x16 slots? Thank you :)
So 4 pcie slots with 16 lanes each? That would be great. How many slots exactly are in this?? I will have one or two 860 evo samsung ssds....so what does that mean?
oh! okay makes sense then :) Thank you
Wait which case wont fit 4 gpus, the phantex enthoo pro?
XO Lolol thats wow. 64gb ram, and that insane cpu........if only!!! 32 cores damn man!!!
Woah, I didnt even know that was a possibility. Wow!! I would want a few more cores than that incase I wanted to use this more as a work station (is it possible for me to use the AMD Ryzen 7 2700x and a different mining motherboard? Or even the intel 7700K 6 core works).
Do I need a power supply that serious or could I go with a 1000w one?
Ok so the Power Riser Adapter connects to the one PCIE port...and essentially adds in this case 6 other PCIE ports from that one connection? Am I understanding right? Would this work for essentially any other build I might be interested in that has 1 or 2 pcie ports? :)
Thank you so much!!
:') Thanks 'man'! Hopefully there will be GOOD sales come Cyber Monday because I certainly dont want to shell all that cash out lol. Good luck to you too
Ok awesome, and why AMD over Intel?
These are the options I came up with trying to find budget ways of building a pc:
Do you think AMD will keep supporting threadripper in the upcoming years tho?
Hahahaha its ok it happens on reddit too, guess not too many girls out there doin this stuff, sad.
Oh shoot, didnt think about utilizing RDP!! Does it work seamlessly or is there a pretty significant lag? Can I easily drop files from my laptop to my desktop remotely if I'm not home? thats sick, thanks!!
Thanks :D I'm a girl tho, but yeah 1080tis work perfect for the job
Wow! this is a serious build!!!
Only thing is I already spent a butt load of money this year on a new laptop and sony camera, so I'm actually trying to get it closer to under $2,000 as possible...is that possible?? Gona look through it now and see what can be switched out for expense purposes.. Is AMD better than Intel for building in 3d? You can get more cores for cheaper I know that...
I'm doing more reading, seems AMD is perfectly fine and might even be better actually, so your call
Thank you so much :))
I think Intel, I havent worked with AMD before, Preferably 10 cores and 20 processors...but price is my determining factor lol
This is truly the most beautiful PC build I've ever seen.
