Description

First build in years. Wanted something I can use for gaming, as well as reasonable performance in my work applications (PS, LR, AE, Blender etc). So far everything has been awesome, games run smooth as butter at 1440p maxed out, and my workflow is so much faster with this I cringe when I work on my apple machines in the office.

Planning on adding a different cooling solution for the cpu (Wraith Prism is a bit loud), as well as finding a better solution for case fan controls (the hub I purchased does not control the speed of the fans unfortunately, although the Fractal fans are not bad acoustically).

This is nearly the exact same build I have sitting in my Newegg cart right now, except I have an EVGA instead of Gigabyte 2070 Super. I am still debating whether to get the Gigabyte Aorus Elite or the Asus Tuf.

I also have a nearly identical build sitting in my cart (bought some parts but not all, yet, been looking for better prices). I'm also looking at the same two mobos. I'm trying to avoid the Asus Tuf b/c I can't stand the yellow accents in the color scheme. It does get good reviews, though. Sadly, a lot of parts seem to be out of stock now that Christmas has passed. I'm hoping that changes soon. I also noticed he used the G.Skill Trident Z Neo Memory (I'm looking at exactly the same memory). I was worried the black/white color scheme wouldn't look right with a darker case and other parts, but it doesn't seem to be very noticeable here. That' encouraging). Nice build. Looks good.

Cool, yeah I'm having out of stock issues too, plus I missed sales on 2 cases I had picked out. One I was ready to pull trigger on is out of stock now lol. I'm leaning towards to Aorus Elite over the Tuf because of the better VRMS. Only thing that bugs me is no debugging LED.

It's pretty loud to be honest. I'm looking to get an air cooler already, I want something with Rgb and recently saw a new Scythe Mugen aRGB model on their website. They said it'll be available q1 2020, will probably get that one.

Used my ff dslr for pictures. I want to get the new Scythe Mugen aRGB plus when it'll be available in USA. They told me Q1 2020, the rgb on it look pretty neat

Liked it below, hope it'll arrive sooner rather than later. It's already out in Taiwan, so it's already in production since August.

Hi, I'm planning to get Fractal Design Meshify C case too. Would you be so kind and check if there is enough space for 200mm (8") long PSU in this case?

I checked the case specs and it says that the max PSU length is 175 mm, but if I remove 3.5" drive cage, that should more space.

Thanks!

Hey how does the monitor work with G Sync, being a free sync monitor?

I have it, and I love it- but just ordered a 2070 Super to replace my 380x- was wondering how it fared.

Works like a charm, just enable G Sync in Nvidia panel, no tears etc. Nvidia allowed use of free sync with their cards few months back I think.

will the case fit with an Asus 2070 super? the card is 305mm and the maximum length that the case has is 315mm. I am just trying to make sure.

I think if you're using case fans, it will fit. Probably won't fit with a frontal AIO radiator. My card is smaller though, so I'd ask someone with a similar length gpu to be 100% sure. Although, I was considering 5700x Red Devil which is around 300mm I think, and I saw people posting builds with Red Devil fitting into Meshify C with no issues.

I'm putting together a build similar to this one and was wondering what length your cables are. It seems you were able to find an optimal length.

Keep forgetting to check this site lol. Probably too late, but I bought AsiaHorse cable extensions on Amazon. I do have an issue with cables in the back that I have not addressed yet, waiting on some rgb fans to do it all in one go. Basically, adding the length of those extensions made it hard to manage the cables in the back since meshify c is actually pretty compact. Hope I'll work it out eventually.
