Description

This is my first proper gaming build where I actually had the money to get exactly what I wanted. I haven't built a PC for at least 8+ years... so after lots of research and a serious dent in my bank balance here its is!!!

Its not the fanciest PC in the world in terms of LED's and custom loops etc, I built it to be a power house for gaming and to last me well into the future!

Edit: I spent the last couple of days since posting this sorting out the overclocking. I'm getting a solid 5GHz out of it, Temps are a little higher than I would like under stress testing but its not into the danger zone or anything so fairly happy for the moment.... I'm going to keep an eye on it over the next few days and might drop it down to 4.9 if its to much.

I am in the same boat but purchased the 2080S (couldn't afford the ti lol). Seeing as I am migrating from Mac to PC for the first time, I do have 1 question. I bought an x72 AIO for both cpu & gpu and am confused as to how I can utilize both since each require a USB 2.0 header on the MOBO. Is there any work around for this?

Yeah the TI is not cheap, originally I was going to use a 2080S but at the last minute decided to splash the cash and go all out!

Depending on your Mobo you might have several USB 2.0 headers, I think mine had 3. You could also use something like the NZXT Internal USB Hub, but i have never tried that myself. To be honest I would question the need to have an AIO for the GPU as well but thats just me...
