Build went really well going to be used for gaming couldnt resist the rgb bling.
AORUS seems to be making the best looking 20series cards at the moment. Nice build +1
and motherboards too imo...
ASUS steals my heart for mobos. But their GPUs this time around are meh for appearance.
I agree with you there too. Currently using Z370-i ROG strix. Only because I was under the impression they offered high quality parts. However, according to individuals like Buildzoid it seems like Gigabyte is winning in function (vrm-wise atleast) on the Z390's. Their recent motherboards are also quite attractively designed and that goes for their AMD boards as well. Gigabyte is currently doing well at both whereas I've heard the opposite for ASUS sadly. I personally prefer function over form where CPU power delivery is concerned, but I am also a little more well-read compared to when I made choices for my first build (back in June 2018). That being said - I've had my eye on the Asrock phantom gaming ITX board because of those impressive vrm components and stealth look for Z390 ITX form factor!
It's the exact same design as every other strix GPU ;)
the gaming x trio 20series cards from msi are definitely a competition to aurous in terms of rgb.
Damn! I hope this thing sells like hot cakes.
Still waiting to see what EVGA does for hybrids this series. ASUS with the launch of their AIOs might have hybrids in the future. Fingers Crossed
The Asian market has actually had 240mm AIOs on their high end cards for quite some time now.
i really like the rbg going on in there
Thats the joke
I said beutful instead of beautiful
your ssd isn't rgb, it's a crap build. not colorful enough
Damn ill have to scrap the whole build now, lol
specifically, whats the rear case fan, and is it compatible with aorus RGB fusion?
HI Xwinger, the rear fan is from CoolerMaster it is 140mm and obviously RGB same spec as the 120mm RGB fans that come with the AIO cooler and the 200mm fans that came with the case i did have to buy it seperatley though as the original case fan is none RGB and spolied the look when finished. As to wether it is compatable with Aorus RGB fusion i dont know as i havent tried to hook it up to the MB, i just made the gigabyte items mirror the CoolerMaster using RGB fusion .
What Mount did you use to hold it sideways?
I asume your asking about the Graphics card, some of the newer PC Cases allow for the card to be mounted sideways, this case has 2x vertical expansion slot ports that can be removed to accomodate the GPU in an upright position all to need is a riser cable to connect the GPU to the motherboard.
How is the GPU temp with that vertical mount? Any problem with heat?
No not at all my cpu idles at 27 to 29 degrees C and ive never seen it pass 50 C no matter what i do, i imagine it would go higher if i were to OC the cpu and push it but at the moment i run stock speeds not looking to overclock for a while as my main use is for games and everything i have played so far run at good frame rates.
What are the Color options for the GPU? can you set it on just one color?
Also hat GPU holder did you use? That made the fans face the window?
No using Gigabyte RGB fusion software i can set any colour i like and also set different lighting effects like Flash, Pulse , Wave etc which just alter how the colours are presented i would check out a YT video of the lighting effects if your interested.
Ok thanks for the response!
This looks REALLY nice! IMO, you should make it all a solid color or two color theme. I personally don't really like just RAINBOW everywhere, but it does look cool. +1
I'm glad i found a fellow builder who knows how to do rgb right and whom is fricking awesome when it comes to it too, also that cable management though, this is easily a 10 out of 10 from me great job madforit can't wait to see more builds from you in the future basically just upgrade the cpu, gpu and ram. kappa
So nice and clean Rgb build
My eyes are getting killed from this, +1
This looks kinda hot...
So when is the party?
Nice build man ! +1
Only have one question, did you have problems with gigabyte softwares with this MOBO? Like, AppCenter, RGB Fusion, Aorus Graphics Engine...
The build has not been in use for long and so far a couple of times the RAM RGB and the GPU RGB seems to have set its self to soild colour i have had to change it back also the GPU has disappered and then reappeared in the RGB fusion software, not sure what to make of any of it at the moment.
rgb increases preformance by 35%
Linus said so so in must be true
