I'm pretty sure he didn't buy that direct online. Anyone in their right mind wouldn't pay over 800 bucks for a 1080 today.

I bought a 2080 from gigabyte when they first launched. I highly advise that you do not use any other RGB control when using RGB Fusion (gigabyte lighting control). I made the mistake of having asus and gigabyte software running simutaneously and I had many crashes until I figured out what it was. Nice build nonetheless.

Simple, clean, and nice hardware. How hard was it to build? I know M ITX systems can be a pain.

V nice setup. The Z97 platform is still a great platform to use. What do you use it for?

The second monitor is an ASUS monitor I picked up at a garage sale about 2 years ago, don't know the exact model. Typical LCD 1920x1080 60Hz display. The language is Chinese, and I just used it as it's on my main wallpaper. Thanks :)

Main monitor is 144 Hz yes and the second is 60. The only times that the frames get locked for my main monitor is if I'm watching a video on YouTube on the second monitor or have OBS running on the side (unfortunate I can't have OBS open on 2nd monitor so I have to minimize it). If I have Discord open on my second monitor it doesn't affect my frame rate for my 144 Hz.

no, its the software issue, particularly if you have other RGB software installed. Other forums indicate this and the only solution seems to exit out of it on task manager.

I don't see any front fans, also hows the gigabyte card? I tried the RGB software when I got a 2080 and I had severe issues.

UPDATE:

Reinstalled and got crashes. If I delete the DLL files that cause my system to crash then it won't work. Does anyone know of any 3rd party RGB programs?

When I went to check the event viewer to see what was crashing my PC it was the SMBCtrl and GLedApi DLL files. I have an asus motherboard and corsair RAM so the only thing I have that is gigabyte is the GPU. I'll go ahead and reinstall the Gigabyte software as a whole and see if it works. If I still get crashes then it's back to the drawing board.

I looked at some of the errors in the event viewer and the Gigabyte software was the culprit. I deleted some unecessary .dll files and everything is back up and running.

It's been a while since I've seen an Ubuntu OS on a current build. I plan on installing Linux to my system as well as soon as I can get the dual boot option on my PC to work. Nice build.

Update: Not the RAM, did a test for 20 min with no errors and then it crashed. I think it's the gigabyte software, so I'm gonna uninstall and reinstall and see if it clears the issue

did a RAM test, still had freezes regardless of speed, even ran stock (2133). The file in question is a system file and as stated in post, people seem to be getting freezes with this file being damaged/corrupted.

I'm trying it at 2933 mhz for now, will post again if their is still issues. I might just buy a new RAM kit rated for a higher speed and see if B-Die will solve it.

I will test this out and see, I do have DOCP on so I'll go ahead and manually change it and see if it brings results.

Temps are reasonable. 32-38 idle, 40-45 browsing. 50-55 gaming and 60+ workloads.

Very clean build, only suggestion would be to put the PC on the desk, as sitting on the floor makes it susceptible to a lot of dust. Aside, very clean build.

I see you have a bit of GPU sag. I recommend a brace so it doesn't sag and cause potential damage to the PCI-E slot, aside from that it's a great build :)

Thermals are alright. For the CPU I sit around 35-40 in idle, browsing can get to 45's, but after reading on it this is the norm. Gaming is 45-55, sometimes 60-65, but very seldomly.

For my GPU I sit idle at 38 C and during gaming it can reach to 67 with battlefield 1 on ultra settings.

If you're gaming 144hz is the way to go but 60fps gaming is good still. Considering you're more leaning towards workloads, hz doesn't matter as much as if you were gaming.

it's not just for rendering, ryzen CPU's need faster RAM because of the infinity fabric (faster speed=more performance)

Don't you void the warranty if you take it apart to put a water block on it? I personally wouldn't but a 2080ti, too expensive.

but doesn't the 2700 have a limit for overclocking? Sorry if it seems like a dumb question I'm still learning on overclocking.
