Project Endgame

by Captainkooch


Basically saved up for 3 months and researched for weeks for what i exactly wanted, i wanted not only a overkill htpc, but a overkill gaming pc. i got a 350mm riser cable and so far everything works fine. I'm having a little trouble getting to 3200mhz on the ram, but honestly not a big deal. Couldn't use Thermaltake sleeved cables because they weren't long enough. I also bought the tempered glass upgrade kit. I set all the rgbs to red but sometimes Asus aura crashes and it makes the ram and motherboard switch to default kind of annoying but i think it'll get better with updates. I still have yet to mount it to my wall.

Part Reviews


Great CPU, definitely was trying to future proof my build with this one. Sometimes a cpu temp error pops up but i think its a glitch, since when i go to bios it immediately shoots down, its generally only on cold boots

CPU Cooler

Great cooler i needed a 360mm and this one is the best one on the market


Honestly this one isn't that necessary, but honestly i needed the pc not only to look good but work great.


I put it to 3200mhz and after awhile itll become unstable on a launch of a game, im just not experienced enough so i downed it to 3066mhz


Great stick will definitely not have to worry about memory for a long time

Video Card

This GPU will run any game at max settings without breaking a sweat, sadly its really expensive.

Sound Card

Makes my vizio surround system actually sound good, has 5.1 surround sound and a bunch of other sound goodies

Case Fan

They look amazing and RGBBBBBBBB!

Tell me how you guys like it, id love your guys opinion.

Aelar_Nailo 1 point 19 months ago

Lovely! Its great seeing more open air builds, not many of those here. However, why the 1800x? Wouldn't a 1700 be approximately the same if you are OC'ing anyway? Anyway, very pretty and ALL THE RGB!

Captainkooch submitter 1 Build 2 points 19 months ago

Thanks man once i saw it i knew i had to get the case. Tbh i kind of regret buying the 1800x but honestly im going to be using this for a long time and i was thinking might as well just spend that extra change.

Aelar_Nailo 2 points 19 months ago

Up to you! Honestly, kinda chump change when looking at the price tag of your build. Enjoy it man! Burn those frames, baby!

Captainkooch submitter 1 Build 2 points 19 months ago

Lol thanks man, finally able to play pubg.

animportantartist 2 points 19 months ago

This thing is crazy. Great job! $$$$$

Captainkooch submitter 1 Build 2 points 19 months ago

Hahaha thanks man im glad you like it!

Cosmetically, that card in vertical mount is absolute fire. Well done.

Sykadelik 1 point 19 months ago

What do you play on this? What settings, what fps, etc.?

Captainkooch submitter 1 Build 4 points 19 months ago

well i spent all my money on the computer, but im saving up for a 2k monitor. but on 1080p i get close to 300 fps on overwatch and i get 100+ frames on pubg. i generally play on high and its honestly the most amazing experience playing anything you want without a problem and at max setting and at 100+ fps. i mainly built this for destiny 2, but that game can run great on a potato. So basically only play overwatch and pubg, but im waiting for red dead redemtion 2 and destiny 2

I'm a little curious about your choice of motherboard: Why spend nearly $300 on a board and a Wi-Fi adapter when you could spend the same or a little less on a motherboard that has on-board Wi-Fi & Bluetooth?

Captainkooch submitter 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

Well i was thinking about getting a board that has a wifi adapter built in, but the wifi adapter i bought should give me better wifi than on board wifi. But you are right, i could of done it much cheaper but this thing is going to on wall for the next atleast 8 years, so i thought might as well make it perfect for my tastes.

masterlimbe 1 point 19 months ago

Well, your tastes are the most important thing here, it is your PC after all. Now be free and destroy all the FPS meters.

I'm not saying that it would be the better decision (or wise) but for that price, you might as well have gone for a Titan Xp

Captainkooch submitter 1 Build 2 points 19 months ago

In the beginning i was thinking about that but then i also was thinking that the titan xp would be better slightly buts also costs 1.2k compared to the 800$ i spent. I also get the beautiful design and rgb of the aorus. I only use this for gaming and movies, so a titan would be wasted on me.

drferrell 2 Builds 1 point 19 months ago

Oh, that makes since! I thought you spent $1100 that is listed in your part list (sounds like you got it at a good time). I was thinking like appearances and cooling aside; if your going to spend $1100 on a 1080 ti then you might as well go for the Titan Xp. If the option was $800 for the 1080 ti or $1200 for the Titan, then I would also go for the 1080 ti, no questions asked.

Great build! I think you definitely have enough horsepower here that you won't have to worry about upgrading for a long time.

You're not the only one with fussy memory. I still haven't been able to get my RAM (G.Skill Ripjaws V 3200 2x8GB) to full speed, running it now @ 2933 with the MSI B350 Tomahawk board on the v1.8 BIOS and my Ryzen 1700 @ 3.8ghz. I'm sure with time it will improve, but to be honest for a brand new platform and architecture I haven't had any major headaches. For me, Ryzen has been a relatively painless transition from my old FX-8350.


Captainkooch submitter 1 Build 2 points 19 months ago

Thank you so much! i completely agree, it was a breeze setting this up. hopefully within this year all the updates should fix any problem anyone has. But honestly, 200mhz is only 1-2% performance increase, so im not completely worried about it. Hopfully, they fix it soon.

That looks very clean, nice job!

''Did you mean Captainkooch's Project Endgame?''

Captainkooch submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Lol that actually made me laugh, thank you so much

DiscJam 1 point 18 months ago

Yup, you're welcome! Love your build BTW!

I hope to hop on Ryzen in a couple of months so I hope it will blow away my expectations. What are your experiences with Ryzen thus far?

Captainkooch submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

They are great, a few teething issues; but honestly for the money you cant buy a better cpu.

skyrise 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Temps and voltages measurements pls? :)

Do you plan on clocking?

Cool build!

Captainkooch submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

i have the cpu running at 1.52 volts at 3850mhz. The computer can handle anything i throw at it. Since its a open air case without a fan blowing directly over the ram and pcb it can tend to get kind of hot, but nothing dangerous. I stay away from high overclocking i just dont see the need and with a 3000$ computer i dont think ill need to upgrade for a very long time so might as well take care of it and keep it running at the sweet spot.

skyrise 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

1.52V is really NOT recommended because anything above 1.4V leads to CPU degradation.

You should be able to achieve 3.9-4.0GHz at 1.325-1.35V. Just keep the temps below 70°C.

Also try to update the BIOS regulary, because gives big improvements, but Asus hasn't implemented it yet for this board.


Captainkooch submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

oh lol im sorry i accidently posted that. i have the cpu z posted as the last picture

ericide 2 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Very clean build! That graphics card looks so nice in this case.
