Good points. I had contemplated getting a 2070 SLI rig built, but when I read that the 2070 will not have SLI abilities, my first reaction was "WTF not!?", followed by "Well, there goes THAT idea."
Looks like I might be sticking with my 1070 Ti concept unless things change...which I don't anticipate.
I'm sorry, but as soon as I saw this beast sitting on the ground....I almost had a heart attack.
I'm all for having nature involved in decoration, but just get a fake little plant from IKEA like the rest of us. lol
I have 1 so far....haven't be able to buy the second thanks to my hours at work getting cut severely. Stupid monthly bills now take all my money...HOW DARE THEY!!!
The Russian judge gives it a 5. :P
Seriously though, nice work. SERIOUSLY nice work.
Nope....just something about Red that I always loved. Kind of how I loved Strike Noir cause it was that only Gundam that had bloody PISTOLS. lol
+9000000000 points for using Red Astray in it.
It's actually a 140mm fan. Just looks odd...but that's Noctua for you. At least it isn't baby poop brown. :)
It actually does. I was initially worried about it too after I bought it because I didn't account for the little bit of extra height that the Chromax covers gave the actual heatsink, but it fit.
Barely...bit it fit. And by barely, I am talking MAYBE 1-2mm of space between the glass and the covers. lol
I dont think I c ok old have this on my desk and look at it without having to wear sunglasses. lol
Damn good job though. +1]000
You already have an ASUS Ryujin? I haven't seen them on sale anywhere yet!
I hate you! :P
lol....I only cried for Horde just out of gits and shiggles. Alliance for life here. :)
Finally....someone else willing to give Cerberus the respect they deserve! :)
I was planning a Cerberus theme build in an NZXT Manta....but this gives me all new ideas. Well played.
FOR THE HORDE!!!
I eventually got it to work, but now I can't remember how I did for the life of me. lol
That's good...I would have taken it off if it had one on it. lol
Should have seen the previous incarnation of my PC.
1 128GB SSD (boot)
2 256GB SSD's
1 500GB SSD
2 1TB HDDS.
I actually just consolidated everything. into a few drives with this build. And believe it or not, the new 500gb M.2 is at 90% capacity just from my main games. lol
Never had it. You might be thinking of the reference 1070 Ti cards. ASUS cards didn't have it.
Coming from a 2008 era Cooler Master CM 680 II case.....hell yeah! :)
Thanks for the kind words. And I am considering that as well (the single card option). My timeline for the other phases of my build are spread out pretty well.
the new Phanteks case comes out at the end of August/beginning of September from what Phanteks has told me, but my custom loop isn't going to happen til nerxt year, like around April or so. So if I do go with the newer cards, I will more than likely be good on waterblocks for them by that time.
Will still be going SLI though, not so much for the game performance increase as it is looks/aesthetics. lol I'm trying to get into the leagues of Snef, JP Modified, Classified Systems, Singularity, hell...even Jayztwocents.....and other prominent modders/builders. :)
Yeah....not seeing a button to add pictures. :(
Well, yeah, I know about that part...I just don't remember which option it is that posts the list of the parts with prices and pictures in other websites. I tried all options on that toolbar and all it ever posted was a bunch of code.
So I know very little about timings...would it really make any difference for a rig that won’t be overclocked? Going to be running a Ryzen 2700X with a pair of ASUS 1070 Ti’s
So this one is a version WITH a USB install drive, correct?
That’s the stock bridge that the motherboard comes with.
I’m looking fo something better looking tha;that since my build is going to be high end....and high end rigs don’t settle for stock crap. I’m leaning towards the EVGA bridges cause I think those are th best looking ones, and I can mod it fairly easily.
So I have begun sourcing the parts for my rendition of your desk design. Granted, I don't quite have a need for a desk al long as yours, so I am scaling it down a bit.
My problem now is that I can not find those bloody angled Capita legs anywhere except Amazon for almost 5 times what the MSRP is, but even then, IKEA America no longer carries them.
I have reached out to IKEA UK to see if they will ship overseas, but I am not hopeful. But I will not give up on my plans! NEVER!!
I'm also planning on getting that new Evolv X case that just debuted at Computex and do some case modding to it with Mahogany. Front and Top panel done to look exactly like the stock ones, but in that luxurious rich, red wood treatment. :)
And no sooner do I say that than I realize that the model number isn't PC-"ZERO"11...it is PC-"OH"11....
Lian-Li should really make that distinction a little better. lol
Must be hidden....I've tried every variation of finding that case in the listings and haven't seen it once.
Yeah, it's just for personal use like web browsing and games. But since I don't play competitive games like CSGO or Overwatch, I'm not too concerned about response time or anything. My focus is to get as many wires off the desk as I can.
Right now the only ones I am looking at is the Corsair and the Roccat Leadr.
Right now,yeah, primarily it is a gaming rig. But I am hoping sometime this year to start up a YouTube channel, so Ryzen will be better suited for that. But that is just a hope for right now.
I've looked at 144Hz monitors, and that high a resolution actually causes me migraines. I used to drool over the thought of having that ASUS 34" curved widescreen, but the first time I saw one, I was in pain in less than 5 minutes. :(
And almost every He f my lists prior to this had an 8700k on it. But after seeing that Ryzen is going to use the AM4 socket up to at lease 2020 and possibly further, I would rather see where Ryzen can take me. Been Intel for too long, and honestly done see them giving us much in terms of improved products the last few iterations of CPU's.
And yeah, I know I only need 16gb of ram, but when I built my rig originally, the Kingstons I got were buy one, get one free...so why not. lol
I'm not real big on upgrading every few years. Besides, with the games I play, a single 1080 Ti is beyond overkill. I am doing 2 so my PC can eventually be a showpiece/centerpiece for a building service and YouTube channel I would like to start. Already have it created, just need to make some content now. :)
This is my current rig. I was able to get a new case and cooling system over Christmas last year, but then in January my GPU died totally which is why there isn't one listed.
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
I already have an EVGA 1000 P2 in my current rig that I will transfer over.
Well, I haven't upgraded in almost a decade now. I am still running a Sabertooth Z77 / i5-3570K rig that has no GPU cause my MSI 970 bricked in January (worst. timing. EVER!).
I think I am going to go Ryzen at this point now. Strongly looking at the ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR VI EXTREME / Ryzen 1800 setup now. Starting to sour on Intel after doing a lot of reading and talking to people now.
It is primarily a gaming rig, but I wanted to put something together that will last me 7-10 years like my Z77/i5-3570K rig has. I don't upgrade every time something new comes out.
And the Ti's are $100 cause I have a line on a supplier that can sell them for that low. Problem is, most people would have to buy 5-10 MINIMUM to get that price. But I have good connections. :)

My reason for going Z270 is pretty much for looks. My plan was to do an all black build, and the best looking board I found for that was the EVGA Z270 Classidfied K. Paired with my 2 EVGA 1080's, it was going to look pretty slick when water cooled.
I know for many it doesn't make a lot of sense to NOT get the latest generation, bu that was just my design aesthetic. And not many Ryzen boards pull that all black look off the way I want.
And I will NEVER buy MSI again despite the fact that the Gaming series is predominantly black. They totally screwed me on my last GPU purchase. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, I'm kicking your ***!
Very true....to me, Z390 is to LGA1151 what Vista was to Windows. Purely a stopgap measure. They rushed it just to answer back to Ryzen.
I'm still not convinced I need to even upgrade to a Z370 from my Z77 board. I am strongly considering going Z270 for my rebuild at this point.
In my head, I am channeling Tom Hank's "There's no crying in baseball" line, only I am screaming "There's no time Vader should EVER be PINK!" lol
Oh EVGA absolutely has. But with the potential to buy a ASUS 1080 Ti for less than $200 right now...I am just weighing all my options.
MSI lost my business for life after a 10+ year relationship with them. So I am very much looking to make sure I don't get bent over by another company the way MSI did me.
Yeah...I've known that since Z370 dropped. I'm asking about the motherboard itself, not CPU's.
Still waiting for the "SLI" part of this advertised "SLI" build. lol
Why does this part not appear when I go to select a motherboard though? The only X299 board I can see is the X299 Micro.
Yes...but can it run Minesweeper?
Nothing, I think. Sometimes I think it is showing its age, getting a little slower on some things maybe.
Main thing though is I would simply like to upgrade my system to something newer and more current.
Thankfully, the rig I am going to do SLI on isn't a gaming rig. It's more of a showpiece rig than anything else.
And since you mentioned 1080 TI as SLI...this is the build it that this particular SLI setup would be going in. Be prepare to laugh. :)
Ahhhh....yeah, that's a few months old at this point. lol
Well now you got me wondering which one you are referring to. I do so many builds on here just to do them, I can't keep track of half of them. lol
No.....worst timing ever is that my MSI GTX 970 dies last week, and MSI won't RMA it because the warrant ended Nov 2017. Now I can't find a card to save my life, and couldn't afford one if I could find one.
And I refuse to pay double or triple MSRP for a card. I'm sorry, not going to pay OBSCENE amounts of money for something just because miners f-ed up the market.
Good luck with finding anything on CL or ebay for under $500. IF you do, they have probably been abused by a miner within an inch of its lifespan.
I'm just waiting for Nvidia directly to notify me of a restock of 1070 Ti's on their webshop. It's about the only way to get a new one without miners getting them all first since they put a limit of 2 per customer on them.
