New pics of new motherboard and AIO installed

This was my first PC build. My friends convinced me to build one and start gaming on PC instead of console. I couldn't really stand having the mishmash PC that my friend gave me for free just to get in to it so this is what I came up with. One thing missing from the list is the Corsair Commander Pro to control all of the fans and I also wanted to note I was able to get a lightly used 1080 Ti for only $300 from a guy doing a fire sale because he was moving out of the country. Over all I am very satisfied with the build and have convinced my dad to now do a build for my sister as a new editing/productivity system.

Edit, Part 2

Had to replace my motherboard as the Asus Prime X570 Pro was causing some major issues. I was regularly under load and not getting full disconnect of all of the USB ports, all lighting, and even the 1080Ti would drop load and FPS when gaming. I tried swapping out everything from power supply, changing all USB settings in Widnows 10, updating all drivers, BIOS, swapped out RAM, swapped Corsair Commander Pros, mouse, keyboard, the works. Nothing would change it and Asus support was an absolute joke. I decided to just RMA the board back to Newegg and got the MSI Meg Ace X570 to replace it. Its the same one I am putting in my sisters new editing PC build. I also decided to add an AIO when I swap the motherboard. I will have pics once everything is all up and running.

Good to see 1080ti's are still being used its almost 4 years old and destroys games in 1440p and still has great value for 4k gaming.

Also for $300, makes me happy that you got such a great deal.

Could we get some more pictures? That would make this perfect!
