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

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

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. :)

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. :)

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.

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.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "What do you think of this build?"

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 ***!

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Z390...."

  • 14 months ago

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.

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.

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. :)

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.
