Description

Only serious complaint thus far, the case arrived slightly damaged (two of the connectors for the front glass were broken). Since I wasn't planning on leaving the front glass on anyway, I'm working with Amazon to see if a partial refund is possible. No issues other than that, booted up first try, and it's hit 5GHz @ 1.29V on the CPU with load temps in the 70s to 90C max on one core.

Eventually a full open loop & SLi is planned, and X299 was originally the plan, but CPU being out of stock prevented that.

What is that 1200 watt power supply doing there?

squidcup 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Future sli and full loop. Still overkill but his parts are also going to continue to draw more power. Sli and full loop with a 9900k will put him around 700w to 750w of power.at full load. OC'd a 9900k by itself can pull around 180w sometimes even more by itself.

That's pretty much it yep. I've already seen almost 600W from the wall with how it's setup now, and about 360W on just full cpu load @5GHz, the PSU was purchased on sale for $180 with the premise of being around the 50% draw mark with the initial build, then pushing past 1000W probably once I have 2 2080 Ti K|ngp|n editions with the 9900K heavily OCed.

i just realized that the thermaltake view is huge without the drive bays

HoneyBadger84 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Without a radiator or drive bays there it is huge indeed. All my drives are on the back mounts. Lol

I think you have more than enough space inside that case for a custom water loop!

HoneyBadger84 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

That's the plan eventually, it's part of why I bought the case.

How is the Samsung QVO ssd doing?

Before reading your description i thought you were insane for building a pc in such a massive case, but then i saw your plan for it and it makes sense XP. Overall great build, but for the budget you might as well go with a 2080 ti. Just my opinion. Good luck with the custom loop, hope to see it again when that is done!

same haha

HoneyBadger84 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

I will be doing that eventually. I'm waiting for the K|ngp|n edition. I also like huge cases. My previous case, the Enermax Fulmo GT is the same height, just not as wide. Originally planned on X299 but the 2 processors I wanted were out of stock for 3 weeks so I went Z390 instead.

I'd personally sell the 1080ti and go for a 2080ti. Sli ain't so great but nvlink is phenomal.

blockbuster4664 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Yeah SLI is kinda dead so when you want to go and do the SLi, sell the 1080 Ti and buy a 2080Ti with the funds you were going to use on the second one, and sell the first one

HoneyBadger84 submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

25-35% gains for twice the price (going from a single 1080 Ti to a single 2080 Ti)isn't something I'm interested in at the moment, and when/if I go SLi it'll be with 2080 Ti's, guess I didn't put that part. SLi and nvlink are basically the same thing, just a higher bandwidth bridge.

Looks like you could take a shower in that case. Great build. +1
