Description

Custom build with tons of power and RGB. We started with the Asus ROG Strix 2080 Ti GPU but two out of three that we tried had coil whine. Changed to the Gigabyte GeForce 2080 Ti instead and worked great. The motherboard was impressive - the box and packaging equally so! The case was very hard to work with because it has hinged front and back glass panels that are held shut with magnets - and with the 1600w power supply and the extension cables there was no room to put anything! Was able to use zip ties to finally get it arranged but it took a LOOOOOONG time. The Strimer on the power cable probably wasn't necessary but did add a fun effect! Overall really happy with how it turned out. Would recommend a different case if building this build.

As much as I want to say that I think this build looks epic. I can't help but admire that cable managing. I spent 8 hours just cable managing my build and if I had to deal with what you did in the last picture I might have just bought a laptop. Mad respect!

I was planning on using the same case on my upcoming build, and my main concern was the glass back panel, hopefully I will have fewer cables to deal with. Either way, good build.

How did you get an EATX in the 500d? I heard you can't.

It actually fit without any trouble. We were concerned originally that it wouldn't since it isn't officially supported, but at least the MEG Z390 Godlike dimensions were not too wide to be a concern. If the motherboard was any wider, it would potentially block the cable routing channels on that case.
