Description

Finally back to the master gaming race.

Speakers is another do out on the parts list.

UPDATE I originally listed the wrong PSU and have updated to the right one. I may still be cutting it close with the power reqs however.

UPDATE 2 I think she is done. I took some advice and found some cable management clips. I removed the support bar and opted for the vertical GPU mount and I love it...

Thank you to those that commented and gave some advice.

Part Reviews

Storage

Probably could have gotten a bigger SSD for the price. Makes my commonly played games load stupid fast.

Storage

Greatest thing ever. OS is the only thing on this drive. Gives me a <30 second boot up of my system.

Storage

Simple. Quiet. Fast enough. All my Steam, GoG stuff goes here.

Video Card

Holy cow is thing a beast. Pretty much everything I play runs at max settings with no FR drop. It's really quiet. Nice that the fans don't run constantly. The RGB works nicely with my ram choice.

Tighten up that cable management, soldier!

Welcome back to the PC Master Race :)

Keep a close eye on that PSU, your build is under-powered at the moment. The minimum spec for that 1080ti is 600w and that 8-core cpu is also going to draw a significant amount over spec if overclocked. That's quite risky.

Sweet build though, good setup! +1

Fix those cables lol. And not sure if it is just me but the GPU looks like it’s sagging

krahe1313 submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

The GPU should not be sagging, there is a support bar below it. Unless I need to create an upright at the very end of the support arm.

Idk. Like I said it might just be me. But from the angle of that pic it looks a little tilted

krahe1313 submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

I opted to remove the support arm and now have a vertical GPU mount.

oh wow ok. can u put up some pics ?

ggggovi 1 point 6 months ago

never mind , looks like u already did lol

Two comments about cable management lol...I assume you guys are talking about the power for the video card...not really sure what to do there...and ideas?

You could use a zip tie, pull the GPU cables tight, and tie them to the HDD cage, or to the nest of cables under the PSU shroud. Also, cable combs are always an option. But in all honesty I think the cables look fine. The PSU should be fine, even if the GPU and CPU are overclocked and on load, the whole system probably wouldn't be pulling any more than ~560W ever (overclocked CPU no more than 120W, overclocked GPU no more than 330W). Just some logical estimations. Additionally, it's an EVGA bronze PSU, so that's a plus.

Deleted the comment before by mistake too, oops.

did you need to use an internal usb hub for your fans and hue+

krahe1313 submitter 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

I will need to eventually. I had to disconnect my front USB 2.0 ports, but the USB 3.0 ports are still connected.
