Description

Initially all I wanted was to upgrade my GTX 1080 to RTX 2080, So I could transfer my GTX 1080 to my theater room's PC to use with occulus rift. Previous build was using 6700 in a Phanteks - Evolv ITX Tempered case. I did not realize that the Zotac GTX 2080 was taking up 3 slots. I ended up overhauling my setup since I had to change the case.

Can you fit 140mm fans for the top and rear of the case?

Beast of a pc, looks great. The graphics card seems overkill in my opinion and the liquid cooling is only their for looks. If you didnt do RGB you could of saved 100 or so bucks along with a cheaper card. At the moment not many games use the geforce rtx 2080 ti making it a bit useless for a few years until games become more powerful and powerful graphic cards cheaper. I would have personally gone for the ryzen 7 2700x threadripper, as its cheaper price but relativly same perfomance. Overall great build

2080 ti is not overkill because he's using 55" 4k tv

Judging by your description, you've clearly don't know many things like the core differences between AIO and air cooler, besides threadrippers are workstation CPUs. You can game alright on them, but purely underutilized for gaming tasks as their primary serve are meant for enormous workflow and breaking overclocking records in competitions. While I do agree 2080Ti is a bottlenecking waste under 4K gaming instead of acquiring unlocked CPU, it also has the power of Titan RTX who should last him for a while.

Thanks -^ , My pc is also hooked up to a 4K 55inch tv. Some games were struggling in 4K. There was a promotion giving free battlefield v and anthem. I had a $100 voucher for minimum spending of $1000. So I thought why not get one haha.

First - thanks for sharing this build! It has inspired my first build which I hope to complete soon.

I was really considering the 8700 k however after researching a bit more, unlocked and overclocked cpus seem to have a bigger effect on lower resolutions like 1080p. Here's a video that explains this more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2Hy_3b6a4E

Lastly, how is your build holding up? Any pros and cons you can share?

Hi, So far my build is doing pretty well (good temps and quiet). except that since its in my room, it gets very bright in my room while I am trying to sleep if my PC is still on (downloading stuff overnight). In order to off the lights, I have to go through 3 different software to off if (corsair, gigabyte and Zotac). I am considering getting Razer rgb mousepad but that would mean total of 4 softwares just to off all the rgb lights.

Interesting tip about the unlocked cpus, didn't know about it. I was never into overclocking therefore it didn't really affect my decisions on which cpu and mobo to get.

Wish you the best -^
