Description

Hey PC community. Hope everyone is enjoying the pictures!

I am a 20 year old engineering student as well as full time employee. I have just gotten into the computer community about a month ago.

I began my job as a cyber security analyst in June and everyone was talking about PC gaming. I come from Xbox and PlayStation (I'll include a pic of that set up too) so I was completely new to the scene. After seeing some of my co-workers builds I knew that I had to build one. After constructing my Newegg cart and deciding I could actually survive a few weeks without food. I decided to press order.

All my parts come in and it's better than Christmas. After 258 YouTube videos I finally got it put together and booted up. Water pump works, fans work, everything. I am very proud of it, and I look to build a custom loop here in the next few months.

I apologize for the lack of pictures. Didn't know this website existed when I was building my PC. So these will all be after completion pics.

Anyways, feel free to ask any questions and I will do my best to answer them! Thanks for looking.

Flip your rear and top fans around to exhaust air, not intake. +1

It looks great. Even more so considering this is your first build.

Congrats, mate!

Go to the asus website they should have a couple pieces you can 3D print to add to your mobo like cable covers, cable combs, and fan covers/holders

how are the temps on your card? I'm looking at getting this card to use with my current system. been debating between a FTW2 ICX 1080 from EVGA and this card that you have in your system. I'm just curious about temps over a period of time since you got the card and how it handles overclocking.

Well there has been a few changes to my system since I have posted this. I put the corsair pro fans in my case and I also added a second curved monitor. Does the second monitor make the card hotter? Couldn't tell ya lol. I honestly don't know. BUT to answer your question, the temps are good, not great, but good. I sit at around 45-50C while gaming. At idle it sits at around 28-32C. So not bad at all, but also not great. I love the card overall, I can throw anything at it and it handles it no questions asked. It is fantastic! I highly recommend it!

that helps a lot actually. those are way better than i have seen with the FTW2 cards and my 1060, i currently idle at 25-27 degrees and consistently nail 80 degrees+ under load right now on my card.

Oh yeah no way, I have never even seen near 60 on mine! You want to make sure you have good airflow throughout your case so that your card can get optimal cooling. That plays a big part in it as well. But this card has three fans on it, so it cools very well. I actually have it on the "silent" setting as well. Not optimized for gaming at all and I still get great temps. So I hope this helped and you really enjoy the card if you decide to get one!!

thank you, it does. and i am sure having a chip running at 4.8GHz on an air cooler does not help the internal temps in my case either.

Haha, most likely not. I don't over-clock my computer whatsoever. Honestly I would push it down to like 3.0 GHz if I could safely. My computer is complete overkill and a present to myself for getting my degree. I really LOVE my water cooler though. It works superbly and keeps it cool without hardly any noise whatsoever! If that is something you are interested in pursuing I highly recommend mine!

You should switch out the case fans for some pwm or Enermax twister pressure fans. Ryzen is better choice for CPU pick.

Ryzen is good but the i7 7700k is great also. So his choice was good

I have been considering doing that! I wasn't sure what a good brand of fans were so I just asked my friends and they said corsair, so there they are. Also, I really am happy with my 7700k. It runs my printers and my virtual machines just fine! Thanks for the comments.
