Yet another amazing build. The Ace was a fun but challenging build. Had to do some custom work to the fans, to be able to fit them in the case with that massive GPU.

Unfortunately pcpartpicker, dose not have the GPU that we used for this build in the inventory here so I attached a picture of the card from the gigabyte site for viewers to see. It is the Gigabyte AORUS 2080 Ti XTREME WATERFORCE and it had one of the best overclocking out of the box from all of the 2080ti's.

CPU yet another easy 5.0ghz overclock, and ram at 3600mhz.

Hope you guys enjoy that build, and will inspire you to build more bad a** computers. XD

you have one very expensive night light.

Great build! Will you consider doing clc and upgrade to vertical gpu mount for this build?

adriank91 submitter 6 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

It was my suggestion to do a vertical gpu on this one, but customer didn't care much for it

Clean build I love all the rgb

Looks slick

blindkitty38 1 point 3 months ago

I will be forced to physically hurt myself if that GPU Rad is not replaced with a 360

pcpartpicker should exclude monitor prices from builds :/

What country are you in? I can’t find the Aorus 2080 TI in any stores in the United States.

adriank91 submitter 6 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

It was for sale on newegg, thats where we got it from. Stores dont have many in stock of the 2080ti, so you just have to wait be patient and look at all the stores online, and once it pops out then buy it.

IWhovian 1 point 2 months ago

I've never seen it in a store either (I live in the US) but you can find them pretty much anywhere online.

Hello. Thanks for sharing! I am looking at a very smiliar build (case with GPU and 360 AIO for CPU). Can you tell me if you tried different mounting options for the GPU's AIO? I was thinking of doing CPU top or side while doing the GPU bottom. Did you mount it side because of the length of the cables? Also, you kept the original fans of the GPU right? Are they replaceable?

adriank91 submitter 6 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

The fans for the GPU AIO, are unfortunetly plugeg in straight to the gpu, so you have to keep them. The thing i did is that i just moved them to the back of the radiator. And for this case the side is the only place where you will fit the GPU AIO, because if you put it on the bottom your cables that plug in to the bottom of the motherboard they will just not fit, and the AIO cables also will be in in the way of closing the case. But watch out when you put the GPU AIO on the side and want to do a push-pull config. like this pc, you will have to cut a pit of plastic from the fan corners so the GPU can fit. In other words if you are want to use the same case, I would recomend just a normal GPU, you will avoid all the problems and obstacles I had to go thru. If you still will have questions feel free to ask.

GreyMerchant 1 point 2 months ago

Thanks for the reply! Your post helps me a lot. I really find it unfortunate about the config in the case :/ . Speaking of the fans in the GPU I see that you can in fact replace them. You can have a look here: https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N208TAORUSX-W-11GC#support-manual . I love this case a lot but I don't want to do anything to the card and yeah the rad support is awkward (given that I also want to do 2).

GreyMerchant 1 point 2 months ago

I just want to ask as well. Would the vertical mount bracket not have sorted other fan mountings? So adding the AIO of the GPU at the top and having the AIO tubes running at the left most front cornet of the case?

nandan_ph 1 point 2 months ago

Thanks a lot for sharing this. I have ordered the same video card and will be getting 9900k. I did ask the question in the forum about the same case and possibilities of placing gpu and cpu AIOs. So I see that your GPU AIO has push pull config. GPU AIO is exhaust ? and the bottom 2+ 1 side is for intake ?

karltbui 3 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

How are the top intakes working out? Im thinking of doing top and bottom intake and side exhaust just to show off my fans. Ive seen all the possible configs but youre the 1st to do top intake.

adriank91 submitter 6 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Its doing good, i wanted to have that sucking cold air from the room to the pc thru the radiator and then bottom and side fans take hot air from the inside of the computer out. I found that to be pretty good for cooling. As long as you keep your room temperature like normal.

IsmaelMiber 1 point 1 month ago

this GPU is the xtreme 2080 waterforce right ?

adriank91 submitter 6 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Yes but 2080ti not 2080, the Ti version idk if you will be able to find it.

DrDancing 1 point 1 month ago

hello adriank91 in your profile it says "I build computers privatly for all my friends, family and poeple(the typos are by adriank91)" i was wondering if you could make one for me?

adriank91 submitter 6 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Yes no problem, what kind of budged you have for your pc, and what are you looking to have in your computer. Do you want a complete custom look with custom water cooling, custom sleeved cables, rgb, or something similar to what i have here so far? Also I am located in Illinois, so idk if after i build the pc it will be pretty heavy so shipping cost might be bit bigger. So there is a lot of factors that go into building a pc. And yeah sorry for all the typos and grammar mistakes, I am European so I do sometimes mess up in English XD
