"Maximum Game" ROG Build

by Skyhopper01

Description

Well Folks, as a PC Gamer going on 18 years I believe I finally have reached max level. Along the way I have updated certain aspects of the build, like adding an ROG THOR psu, and also the new ryujin 360 cooler. OH yea and also another 2080ti! So as far as clocks go, my 9900k is at 5.1 with 1.3v. There is a bit more room to spare but I am happy with that frequency. Temps max at 73-75c on the CPU using the Ryujin 360 at 75% fan speed. The Trident z RGB Kit runs at its rated 4133mhz with xmp enabled using 1.4V, 1.20 vccio and 1.15 vccsa. In order to combat some of the heat from this SLI setup I mounted an extra fan in front of the GPUS using some double sided tape. It does a good job at adding some extra airflow for the cards but even with this extra cooling the top card will with 86C at 110% power target. Since these cards are so powerful, I usually run the top card at 85% power target and completely max the bottom card resulting in a drastic decrease in temps with a slight performance trade off. It may not be ideal, but the bottom card still is able to crack into the mid to high 1900's while gaming, and with sli disabled it will steady out around 2010 - 2025 mhz. For now, this is my ultimate gaming build and I couldn't be happier. Let me know what you folks think about the build!

That moment when you realize a pcpp build cost more than your car

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 3 points 1 month ago

Haha, it costs more than my car as well!

ljppkgfgsc 2 Builds 3 points 1 month ago

$880 for only 32GB of ram... impressive... can it even run at the rated speed?

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

IT actually runs at xmp no issues. I think the actually cost of the memory was 15 percent less but that was months ago at this point =D

SonsBlud 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

Seriously powerful machine, simple & clean as well, good stuff!

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

Thanks =D

This is the cleanest sli cable-management I’ve ever seen. Awesome job!

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Cheers man, thank you.

Best build on PCPP?

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Haha, in my eyes it may be ;)

ItzMunx 2 points 1 month ago

Love the build, Makes me confident on how well almost the same build I want to create in a few months is will perform. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/ItzMunx/saved/rRBw6h

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

You wont be dissapointed! Best of luck with the build.

vincent_2006 1 point 1 month ago

Nice build as a 12 year old this is my dream build, cant wait till i get enough money to make my own gaming pc.

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 3 points 1 month ago

When you finally get your own PC built and operational it will be a great moment!

pauleee 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

Yup, when I finished mine, It was one of the greatest moments of my life. Not too flashy, but enough lights and power to satisfy my needs.

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

I will have to check out your build!

pauleee 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

I know this sounds dumb, but why didn't you go with a custom loop? Good build tho!

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 3 points 1 month ago

I was never a big fan of water cooling, but I suppose thats the next logical step haha.

pauleee 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Well, its a bit better than air, but its a lot of work. Custom loops are the best performance, i want to do one eventually. Your build is amazing though!

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

I do appreciate it!

No need

CrypticET3124 1 point 1 month ago

But it makes it look cool.

sammys87gnxgta4 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Nice build but that ASUS board is a pretty lacking part in your build, being a four phase board that's ridiculously overpriced for it's quality. You can buy much better for less even.

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

The ASUS 4 phase design is good though, I can hit 5.2ghz on my 9900k with 1.35v, although it isnt fully stable.

CrypticET3124 1 point 1 month ago

I assume you don't keep it at that level...

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

I keep it at 5.1 all the time at 1.3v using fixed Voltage. The system handles it really well. 5.1 is rock solid and vrm temps are great.

CrypticET3124 2 points 1 month ago

Nice!

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Thanks mate

sammys87gnxgta4 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

My man, it's still a four phase design that's overpriced to hell. Not a good board in value and performance whatsoever.

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 3 points 1 month ago

You may be right, thing is the new Asus 4 phase vrm design has increidible transient response because it lacks doublers. This makes it a true 4 phase design that has no problem handling high over clocks. Like I said before I am running 5.1 ghz at 1.3v no problem, and that’s with 32gb of memory at 4133mhz on XMP. It may be overpriced, but I love the aesthetic :)

sammys87gnxgta4 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Transient response isn't even noticeable in most cases, and lacking doublers isn't exactly a good thing either. It's still a four phase, a six phase would still have better temps on an overclock because there is less load per phase.

L3gen6ary 1 point 1 month ago

This thing has ROG all over it. Why is that SSD just sitting right there? It could be hidden.

smilesmile 1 point 1 month ago

IMO it looks better in the open.

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

On this chassis there is a slot there for a ssd, I personally like showing it off there haha.

JDawn747 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

What a monster. Well done. I gotta ask what you do for a living!

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

Haha, i work in IT, not rich by any means. Just saved a bit and used some amazon 0 percent financing options for the monitor. Nice not having to worry about interest and can then pay it off over the course 3 or 4 months.

Salticid 1 point 1 month ago

Beautiful build!

How about water cooling the GPUs to combat the temps and ramp them up to full power? Or even OC?

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Thank you! Yea that may be the next logical step in order to deal with the heat generated by these beasts. On this board there is only 3 slot spacing so it does choke off the top card.

Eagle355 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

More photos pleeease this is so good

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Sure, let me see what I can do.

GreeVjacket 1 point 1 month ago

Looks appealing and balanced RGB wise, the specs are impressive and even though I would criticize this for dumping too much cash this should hold for a very long time and for all-around workstation purposes too.

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Agreed, It was a lot of money but like you said, this should be future proof for a while!

diypartsjoy 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

That's a lot of watts! +1

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Indeed! Ive seen it pull 750 watts during Far Cry 5.

Mr.KnowNothing 1 point 1 month ago

Witcher3 max settings??

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 3 points 1 month ago

Wow, I forgot Witcher 3 supports SLI. I may have to reinstall this and test it.

EnergizedMadness 1 point 1 month ago

One of those GPUs is thiccer than my wallet.

-parzival- 1 point 1 month ago

The first thing I did was check the saved parts list to check how high the wattage was.

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Ha, believe it or not I thought the power draw was going to be much much higher. I suppose on water with both cards at 125% power in a game the utilizes SLI it would go much higher.

Ethan0422 1 point 1 month ago

Maximum Game? Looks amazing! But what about the GPUs? Maximum Temperature? lol

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

Haha! This is my new personal space heater.

ovuk 1 point 1 month ago

I was actually thinking about how much it would cost if someone went all-out on their build. I figured $5K or so. I was wrong.

You are a madman and this build is insane. I love it. Hope it serves you well for many years.

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Thank you man, let’s just say I won’t be buying any more pc parts for a while haha.

Thanks!

CrazyMan76 1 point 1 month ago

OMG I didn't even know they were selling the ROG Thor PSU yet.. How much watts does your computer use compared to the PSU output. I think I'm gonna spring for the 850w model.

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Well the psu is 1200W, max I’ve seen it draw was around 750, this was with no overclocks on the graphics cards.

one hell off a build man nice

Come on man you're gonna have to write more than that! Actually talk about how it performs. How is that monitor? What games do you play and what frames do you get at what settings?

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 3 points 1 month ago

Haha! I wanted to keep it simple, well It performs like a Lion on a double shot of adrenaline. I did some benchmarks at 4k SLI enabled. In shadows of the Tomb Raider I averaged 132fps. Far Cry 5 Was around 110 I believe. The monitor has been an amazing upgrade from a PG279Q. Besides the extra clarity from the 4k panel, HDR has blown my mind! AC Oddessey with HDR is Mindblowing.

Tuskeyemer 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

my god 110 fps at 4k in far cry 5

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

It really is epic man, so smooth!

Tuskeyemer 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

i could get like 50 with my oc'd 1070ti at 4k just gives you a scope of how powerful those 2 cards on

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Yea these cards are no joke! I ran the benchmark in Shadow of the tomb raider and it averaged 132 FPS!

OccamAsylum 15 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Oh man I bet ACO looks incredible. It looks good on my 1440p VA panel, can't imagine what it looks like for you.

smilesmile 0 points 1 month ago

It's great, but why did you get SLI? It isn't really supported anymore.

Skyhopper01 submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

I wanted to be able to drive the PG27UQ at its maximum refresh rate when possible. A lot of triple a games do support sli but unfortunately not all =/
