Description

The title is a joke (kind of), although i will be playing Windwaker, I am mainly looking forward to playing VR-Racing games and Flight sims!

I originally planned to build this PC a lot cheaper but since I got the (slightly used and still 2y warranty left) 2080 Ti for such a great deal i just HAD to get it. So i built the PC around the GPU.

I only had two smaller problems while building, one being the mounting of the AIO-Cooler, with the reason being mainly that it was my first time ever building a PC and I was incredibly nervous when holding it in place and screwing it down, but that worked out fine in the end!

The other issue was the NZXT Hue+ which didn't seem to work properly. I am using the 120mm as the exhaust fan and two of the 140mm as intake, as well as one of the LED-Strips that came with the Hue+. Weirdly enough only one of the 140mm fans and the LED-strip were lighting up, the other two fans staying dark. CAM also only let me choose the colors of the LED-strip, nothing else. After various attempts of rearranging the fans led-cables, and switching the ports on the Hue+, i decided to return it and will order the Hue2 instead and see if that works.

Temp and clock stats are straight from CAM software while under very heavy load (I use the folding@home software from Stanford University (at Full folding power), it uses your PC's processing power to calculate the folding of proteins in the human body for disease research and sends the results to their labs; It's a fantastic project and you can check it out here folding@home)

How well does wind waker run? I use a GTX 1050 and i7 7700HQ and am able to run certain emulated games (Mario Kart Wii, Kirby Air Ride) at 1080p upscaled on DX11

Didn't have the time to try it out yet, unfortunately! I'll keep you updated when i get to try it :)

Normally I don't question what I see on posts, but being that temps are hot (pun intended) on my mind, is your CPU not running hot? 87C seems very high, even under load. I understand that I am running different hardware, but I use a very similar cooler and sit around 55C under load. My CPU, according to PCPP, should put off more heat. Curious to see what others think, maybe someone with a 3rd gen Ryzen chip can chime in.

Thanks for the input! I'm not that sure myself tbh, new CPU-gen and all, but I can only urge you to try the folding@home program for yourself and see how hot it gets your system^ Heard people on the pcmasterrace subbreddit talking about how it can push your pc farther than most benchmark tools etc. so it didn't seem too out of place for me.
