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!

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

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

  • 8 months 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

I came here for the RAM - to see if people get these sticks running at it's rated speed. I wish to build a new Rig and want to run high speed RAM since a few of the games I play love ram speeds (as weird as that may sound). I plan to run single GPU this time around, though my current build runs 1080Ti SLI I plan to wait for 3080Ti or 2180Ti (whatever they may call it) when it comes out, and just use one of my 1080Ti's until that comes out. Did you tweak a lot to be able to do 4133? and did you ever consider getting some aio cooling on those GPU's as well? I have the same "issue" as you with my SLI setup, top card is roasting.. even if I got a MB with 1 extra slot between GPU 1 and 2.

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.

  • 8 months ago
  • 2 points

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

  • 8 months ago
  • 2 points

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

  • 8 months ago
  • 4 points

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 :)

  • 8 months ago
  • 1 point

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.

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

  • 8 months ago
  • 1 point

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.

As much as I love and I do have the Phantek Evolv, one thing is a fact, the case suffers from airflow and I know you must keep the side and front panel off, to keep that "temps are great"

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.

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

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.

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

  • 8 months ago

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

  • 8 months ago
  • 1 point

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!

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

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.

Beautiful build!

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

  • 8 months ago
  • 1 point

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.

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.

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

  • 8 months 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.

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.

  • 8 months ago
  • 1 point

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

1) What are the temps like on the PSU 2) Why didn't you go with a 9980XE and X299 board for fully dual x16 speeds and not dual x8 speeds on the GPU, I was trying to design my 'dream' pc and I was just wondering why you chose what you chose. 3) Can it run CS:GO over 550 fps consistently?

I was thinking to add the second GPU (the same model) and I thought that the top one would have problems with the airflow...

Did you figure out how to cool it better? Currently I have one GPU and it never goes over 72ºC even at 2100Mhz and over 125% power (I know it's not supposed to go over 125% but it does).

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?

  • 8 months ago
  • 3 points

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.

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

  • 8 months ago
  • 2 points

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 =/

  • 6 months ago

Most big games are optimized for SLI. Like battlefield and r6s are for sure. I beat out my 1080ti friend with my 1070sli in those B)
